Do you like making Birthday handmade cards for your kids? If you do, I know you will love this post, as I am sharing with you how to make a Birthday handmade card using the Birthday Bonanza suite from Stampin’ Up!
I am also showing some tips to stamp multi-step images using a stamp positioning, in this case, the Stamparatus from Stampin’ Up!
But before we dive into the Birthday card, let me tell you that this post is part of a Blog Hop with an amazing group of fellow demonstrators around the world. I am sure you will enjoy hoping around with us while getting tons of inspiration!!!
How to make a Birthday Handmade card
As I mentioned before, I am using the Birthday Bonanza suite from Stampin’ Up!, which is a great suite full of bright colors and cute critters that will make any birthday card look adorable! You can see below the picture of this suite! is this not the cutest suite?
The Birthday Bonanza suite has a great stamp set called Bonanza Buddies that include the cute little critters you see in the picture above! This stamp set coordinates with a die set, that can help you die cut not only images from the stamp set, but also images from the designer series paper!
I definitely love a die set that coordinates with the patterned paper of the suite, as this always makes it easy to make cards! not to mention that it also makes it quick! So you get a great card without consuming too much time. If you are like me, always running and busy with too many things in life, but still enjoy crafting, then you will love this suite!
Below you can see the birthday handmade card that I made with this suite! The toucan was stamped using the Stamparatus! which is a stamp positioning tool that makes your life easy when it comes to lining up images perfectly. I am linking a quick video showing you exactly how to stamp the toucan.
Use the Stamparatus to stamp multi-step images
As I was telling you before the Stamparatus is the perfect stamp positioning tool to help you stamp multi-step images.
You might not know what are multi-step stamps, and if that is the case let me explain more about this.
Multi-step stamps are set of images that complement each other. For instance, the focal point in my card consists of three images: the toucan, the hat and the pom-pom.
Did you notice in the Birthday card that the hat is covering part of the toucan’s head? this is making it look as if the toucan was wearing a party hat! You can make this effect by using a technique called masking.
So if you are interested in learning both the lining of images using your stamp positioning, and the technique masking, then make sure to watch the video below!
