Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday To You for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s a sketch challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

I decided it was past time that I played with my Birthday Dies (from the 2020 Coordination Product Release) and the Happy Birthday To You stamp set (SAB Release 1).  I combined them with a little of the Flowering Foils Specialty DSP (SAB Second Release).  I also snuck in a little sneaky peek at the new Ornate Layers Dies….Take a look-see:

And here’s our sketch!

I also borrowed a color combination from this week’s Inspire. Create color challenge.  I picked Daffodil Delight as my “Your Choice” color! 🙂

First thing, I cut a card-front-sized piece of Night of Navy card stock and embossed it in the new Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder (this is part of the new Ornate Garden Suite and you’ll be able to order it on 1 April!).  I adhered the embossed panel to the front of my Night of Navy card base with Liquid Glue.

Next, I cut a piece of the SAB Second Release Flowering Foils Specialty DSP (free with a $50 order thru the end of Sale-a-Bration on 31 Mar 2020!) with the large frame die in the Ornate Layers Die Set (also part of the Ornate Garden Suite) – this became the card front and I popped it onto the card base with Dimensionals.

On a seperate piece of Whisper White, I stamped the cake image from Happy Birthday To You (free with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration) in Versamark Ink and sprinkled it with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Then I heat embossed it with my Heat Tool.  When it was cool, I cut it with the die in the Birthday Dies – part of the 2020 Coordinating Products Release.

I colored the flowers with my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Combo, the cake with my Crumb Cake combo and the leaves and berries with my Night of Navy combo.  Hint: be careful using Blends on embossed images – the ink and the embossing powder will react – and melt the embossed image! 😉 Just be careful, you can do it!

Using the cool die in the Birthday Dies, I cut a Copper Foil cake plate and adhered it to the bottom of the cake image (I snipped off the pedestal from the cake first).

With dies from the Birthday Dies set, I cut two Night of Navy leaves and three Crumb Cake berries.  I also tied a double-length bow with Linen Thread.

For the sentiment, I stamped the Happy Birthday To You sentiment in Night of Navy on Whisper White and cut it with a Stitched So Sweetly rectangle die.

With all the pieces ready, I arranged them on the die cut card front until I was happy with it – and took a picture.

I picked up the sentiment and took another picture so I’d know where to adhere everything.

I popped the cake on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then the leaves and berries with Liquid Glue.  Finally, I added the bow with a Glue Dot.

I added a Night of Navy gem from the Holiday Rhinestone pack and the card front was done!

For the inside, I used the Ornate Layers die again to cut a Whisper White panel.  Then I stamped a second Happy Birthday To You sentiment in Night of Navy.  Around it I added some Daffodil Delight splatters with a stamp in the set.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to the inside of the card base and the card was done!

The front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope got a Crumb Cake cake from Happy Birthday To You – colored with Blends.  I also added some Daffodil Delight splatters…

…and I added some of the Flowering Foils Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  How cool is it that the Flowering Foils Specialty DSP flowers are so similar to the flowers on the Happy Birthday To You cake?  And the matching Birthday Dies are awesome – making short work of the cake and cake plate and some wonderful leaves and berries.  Get these all RIGHT now!!

The Ornate Layers Dies will be available on 1 April with the Early Release Ornate Garden Suite.  I hope you like!

  1. So pretty Mary 🙂 The flowers in the DSP match the flowers on the cake perfectly

    • stampsnlingers

      Thanks, Karen – it’s cool how they match, isn’t it?? 🙂

  2. So pretty! The Happy Birthday to You cake is perfect with this paper and the die cut background makes it extra special!

  3. LOVE it! The photos of the cake stand that turned out purplish/blue are really cool. I know that’s not what you wanted to achieve. I wonder if there would be a way to make it actually be like that?

    • stampsnlingers

      LOL – I could probably do it with REAL copper, but…no idea how to do it with paper copper!! Thanks, Karen! 🙂

  4. Pretty die cut layers! Love that foil background! 🙂

  5. Another fantastic card, Mary! Love the copper cake stand with the colors you used. And, that large rectangular fancy die-Wow!

    • stampsnlingers

      Isn’t it pretty?!? I think that’s going to be an awesome new Suite!! Thanks, Julie! 🙂

  6. Thanks for sharing the basket on YouTube today! I love it! My phone rang & wasn’t able to see the end. 😕. I’ll catch the replay.

    • stampsnlingers

      Thanks for watching while you could! It’ll be up on tomorrow’s blog, too. Appreciate you, Pam! 🙂

    Beautiful card Mary. Love all the layers and texture. They work so well together.
