Stampin’ Up! Happy Grand Detailed Birthday

Good morning, my peeps – so starts another week.  A full one.


If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I sure appreciate you spending some of your precious weekend time with me!  If not, but would like to see how we played with the fun new Detailed Birthday Edgelits, here’s the just-like-being-there-LIVE-but-completely-different version on YouTube! 🙂

I decided to play along with the Just Us Girls Word Week challenge – I think it works! 🙂

I started by embossing a panel of Whisper White in the Polka Dot Basics TIEF and then matting it on Pineapple Punch with Liquid Glue.

The birthday presents are made with the new Detailed Birthday Edgelits – cut from Pineapple Punch.

I used some little leftovers of Happiness Blooms DSP and adhered them behind the presents with Liquid Glue.  This is not-so-fussy cutting, so don’t be afraid of it!

I popped the newly decorated gifts over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment is die cut in Lovely Lipstick with the Happy Birthday Thinlit from the Annual Catalog, then adhered with Liquid Glue.

I added some Night of Navy dots from the Happiness Bloom Enamel Dots and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the big and beautiful sentiment from the new Life is Grand stamp set in Lovely Lipstick on a Whisper White panel.  Then I added a few Calypso Coral Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pineapple Punch mat and into my Lovely Lipstick card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got some Calypso Coral dots using a stamp in the Bloom By Bloom stamp set across the front…

…and a little more Happiness Blooms DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How fun is this Detailed Birthday Edgelits die set?!?  It works great for birthdays – but…change up the sentiment and the DSP used to create the “wrapping paper” and it would be a great Christmas card, wedding, new baby, or…really any celebratory occasion!  And it would be great for man, woman or child!  And the Life is Grand set – perfect for quick and easy stamp-only cards!!  Hope you like!





P.S.  Yes – I DID find the stamp set.  It was right where it belonged on the shelf.  Cuz…I was looking for HAPPINESS BLOOMS.  But IT’S name is BLOOM BY BLOOM.  So…doh!

P.P.S. Still time to get in on Double Peppermints!

  1. Awesome card and fun video last night too! Glad that you found the “happiness blooms” stamp set after all. 😉 And yay for moving lots of retired stuff out…more room for the new stuff!! 😀

    • stampsnlingers

      Exactly! Out with the old – in with even MORE new!! Thanks, Amy! And yes – I felt pretty danged dumb when I realized why I couldn’t find the set! 😉

      • Lisa Crosby

        Don’t feel bad. I did the same exact thing tonight. All my stamp sets are in alphabetical order and I could not figure out where my “Happiness Blooms” stamp set was. After looking everywhere in my craft I started going through my stamp sets from the top. Didn’t take me long to find “BLOOM BY BLOOM” LOL!!! I’m such a dork. Finn and the Kitty look cozy. I found my Tiggy asleep in the clothes basket on top of a nice warm load of socks and towels that had come out of the dryer. She looked so peaceful. Gotta love our fur babies. I am happy it wasn’t a load of my tops or something though.

      • stampsnlingers

        Well – cat hair is just another important accessory in our clothing line-up, yes?!? Glad to hear its not just ME that gets wrapped around the axel looking for the WRONG name!! Thanks, Lisa! 🙂

  2. I enjoyed being with you last night and I enjoyed seeing Finn and Wayne this morning. The Finnstermeister looks to be in a very precarious position!

  3. Kate

    Who else?

    • stampsnlingers

      Coulda been The Horse Whisperer – but…so far the ponies haven’t persuaded me that they need to come IN the house!

  4. Claudia Ingram

    Lovin’ Dr. Dolittle – so peaceful!

    • stampsnlingers

      Yes – it was quite the cozy scene! Thanks, Claudia! 🙂

  5. Why is Wayne so bundled up in the house?

    • stampsnlingers

      It only looks bundled up to US! For HIM – that’s just regular. He’s always a little chilly – comes from having zero body fat – in the winter!! 🙂

  6. Susan K

    Hate I missed the Live event but football playoffs took priority last night. (even though my team wasn’t playing! 🙁) Love those packages and the whole card–I should use that HB diecut more often and get the packages one! Dr. Doolittle and his creatures look comfortable.

    • stampsnlingers

      They were – Katy has become a real lap-kitty since her brother left us! Sorry we missed you but…football! Thanks, Susan! 🙂

  7. Very cute card! Love the leftover pieces of patterned paper you used for the presents. Thanks for playing along with us at JUGS!

    • stampsnlingers

      Thanks so much, Sue! Appreciate you stopping by! 🙂

  8. This is such a colorful and festive birthday card, Mary. Thanks for sharing it with us at Just Us Girls.

    • stampsnlingers

      Thanks so much, Bobby – appreciate you stopping by! 🙂
