Paper Crafting Blog Hop - Just Want to Say Happy Birthday

Welcome to our June Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring Happy Birthday themed cards. This hop features a group of talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the globe. There are demonstrators from the USA, United Kingdom and Australia participating. We have a wide array of fun projects and design styles to share with you for our theme this month so be sure to stop at each of our blogs. You may have arrived from Krissi's blog. She always has great projects!

Just Sayin' Happy Birthday

This card may not look it, but it was very easy to create. Just some layers, a couple of die cuts, ribbon and one "Happy Birthday" stamp. All items are part of the FINE ART FLORAL Suite which is available as a suite through June 30, 2021 or while supplies last. 

The good news is the ART GALLERY stamp set, the FLORAL GALLERY dies and the FINE ART ribbon (I love the gold threads in the ribbon) have carried over and are available to order in the 2021-2022 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog. 

The sad news is that the FINE ART designer series paper (DSP) and the GOLDEN GARDEN designer specialty acetate will retire after June 30, 2021. 

The way that the design of the  GOLDEN GARDEN acetate perfectly overlays this pattern of the FINE ART FLORAL DSP, makes for a gorgeous background for this card! 

And be sure to remove the clear film from the silver side of the acetate. 

The Foam Adhesive Sheets give a wonderful dimesional lift to the die cut words from the FLORAL GALLERY dies. 

Remove one of the sticky sides and adhere cardstock cut to size. Then run through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss die cutting machine. (You may have to run through a couple of times to go through the foam and cardstock). Then just peel off from the backing and you will have another sticky side to adhere the die cut sentiment to the front of the card. 

I hope you like this card as much as I like sharing it with you.

    1. Joy, such a bright and cheery card!

    2. What a beautiful card. I love our DSP too. TFS

    3. The gold acetate really takes your card to another level. And I love the foam sheet for the greeting - so clever and effective. ANd I love the way the greeting hangs over the edge of the papers!

    4. I think you've nailed it Joy. Fantastic job of showcasing this gorgeous suite.

    5. Beautiful and colorful design!

    6. Beautiful card! I'm a fan of the foam adhesive sheets. Thanks for sharing!

    7. I agree with you, it is going to be sad to see the paper retire - it makes such beautiful cards

    8. Just beautiful! That's my favorite DSP from the mini. Thank you for the step-by-step graphic for the acetate!
