Hello Friends!! This month is my favorite as my birthday is during this month 🙂 so I decided to post a project about making a birthday card!!
Believe it or not I usually do not get handmade cards, however this year I actually got 6 handmade birthday cards, and they all made me feel so happy, as I felt blessed and special for someone to make a card and send it to me.. this made me remember how important it is for us to be sending the cards we make to our loved ones, to our friends or to acquaintances to let them know that we are thinking of them or to bright their day!
So my post today is to show you that you can make birthday cards super easy so you can make several of these to send, and I challenge you to mail as many cards as you can during this month, I am sure the recipient will absolutely love it! but don’t stop this month, make it a routine to send birthday cards every month. 🙂
The card I am featuring today is using the varied vases bundle, which has a photopolymer stamp set and a coordinating punch! because it is photopolymer you can see thru the images and be able to align the stamps as you stamp the flowers. When stamping with photopolymer stamps be sure to use a foam mat under the cardstock you are stamping, in my case I use the piercing mat from Stampin’ Up!, this helps to transfer the image better when stamping.
The designer series paper that I used for this card is the garden impressions, which comes on a 6×6 pack, so it is perfect for card making, there are tons of really nice designs on this pack, on one side there is a floral design and on the other side there is more of a monochromatic design, so it is perfect when you are coming up with your card making.
As far as color combination, I usually use the colors from the designer series paper pack, and this was no exception for this card. I do this when I am stuck with ideas for color coordination, I just look at the paper pack I have, pick the design I like the most and then pick the colors from that design. Now this tip is usually the best when using Stampin’ Up! products, as they all color coordinate perfectly!, what I mean with this is that the cardstock, the ink, the embellishments and the designer series paper all color coordinate perfectly so this tip is super easy to follow with these products as you don’t have to go to the store and find the exact match on the colors. In this case I wanted to use mainly the Mango Melody, as this was the color on the flowers in the designer series paper and this is the ink pad I used for the flowers I stamped.
Watch the video tutorial, where I go over measurements, tips and tricks on how to make this card step by step, you will see this is super easy to recreate and will be able to make lots of birthday cards to send to your loved ones.

Hello Friends! Today I am participating on Kylie Bertucci’s International Highlights, where you get to vote for your 5 favorite cards from all the participating cards on this event. Those that get the most votes will be participating on a blog hop at the beginning of October!
The theme for this month is Congratulations!! with so many things to celebrate this is a great theme to create cards and send them to your loved one, don’t you think?
My card was created with a wedding in mind, I have a friend that soon will tie the knot and I thought it would be great to send her a card to wish them all the best!
I used products from the Frosted Floral suite, which is a new suite from the brand new holiday catalog.. have you seen it already?? This new catalog is AMAZING!!! (you can check it out here) all the suites are so beautiful!! and this one happens to be one of my favorites as I believe it is very versatile, and can be used for so many occasions, it might need to be paired with other sentiment sets, but the images on this set are perfect for so many type of cards, like birthdays, get well soon, thinking of you, thank you, mother’s day, etc, like I said so many occasions come to mind 🙂
One thing I love about the frosted bouquet framelits is that it has duplicate of some of the flowers, so you can die cut flowers faster, which I think it is really great to have.
From the close up picture you can see better the flowers, I show in the video below how to color these, it is a technique I use with the markers, so be sure to watch the video to learn how I do this.
Also check out the gorgeous Frosted Floral specialty designer series paper, this is really nice as all the designs were printed in shimmer paper so it looks fantastic. Also on one side you have a floral design and on the other side you have a monocromatic design, so it is great to make cards that color coordinate really well, and this also makes it so easy to design your cards. Watch the video tutorial below, where I go over measurements, tips and tricks on how to make this card. You will see that this card is so easy to duplicate!! And you can see the new products in more detail.
