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?
Don’t get confused with the name of this suite as these little critters can be used for any occasion card! You can see this Valentine’s card using that lovely koala here.
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!
Step-by-Step video tutorial to make a Birthday handmade card
After stamping the Toucan, then its time to put together the card. In the next video I show you how to make the Birthday handmade card step-by-step. I even throw a tip on saving cardstock by die cutting some elements from the the cardstock that will be covered with patterned paper. Intrigued? 😉 Then watch the video tutorial below!

Hi there! It has been a long time since I posted here on the blog, though I have kept sharing weekly content on my facebook page Creating with Allie. The reason for this was that I was making some changes and upgrades to my blog.. It now moved to a different platform which hopefully will make things a lot better for you..
I gotta confess, the blog was finalized mid July, but as usual, life was just hectic with two little ones, a brand new work, and all things around the house, that kept me from really learning the new platform.. ha!, you see, in my head the change was going to be super quick and all was going to be super easy.. however as with everything in life, there is always a learning curve, and sometimes we get all frustrated when things are not getting right the first time.. has that happened to you?? probably so..
Anyway, I decided to step away and breath and try to learn more about this new platform and today with the Stamping Around the World designer team’ blog hop, I made up my mind to just jump at it and get into it.. This was the perfect excuse I needed to forget about all my frustrations and just get to it.. After all, I just upgraded to this platform right? I now need to use it!! and how am I going to get better if I don’t even give it a try? really, I always tell this to my toddler “Just try it”, and here I was doing exactly the opposite!! anyway.. here I am, teaching by example to my little ones… 😉 so here we go!!
Stamping Around the World Blog Hop!
If you are new to the Stamping Around the World Designer team, let me share with you a little bit!, We are a team of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators around the globe who design tutorials to make a bundle that we offer as an incentive when you purchase with us, so if you are in the US and purchase with me $50 worth of products at my Stampin’ Up Store, you get the Tutorial bundle for FREE!!! that is 12 tutorials for FREE!!! If you are a demonstrator and want to get the tutorial bundle you can also purchase it with me for $20.. you can see a sneak peek below of this month’s Tutorial! 🙂
With this being said, every month this team hops together to show you additional projects using the same stamp set that we used on our tutorial!, so in my case I will share with you the Dinoroar Suite!!!
Meet the Dinoroar Suite!
Are these little dinosaurs the cutest or what??? I really think so!, the minute I saw them on the new catalog I knew I wanted to get them for my little Oliver!, these are perfect for toddlers, don’t you think?
The colors were selected by going with the colors contained in the designer series paper (DSP); this one is one of the best tips for card making. Actually this is one of the reasons why I love Stampin’ Up! so much, you can literary get anything to coordinate pretty well when it comes to their products as everything is color coordinated, meaning if you see in the DSP that Old Olive is included, then you can get ink, cardstock and other embellishments on this same color! making it super easy to create cards as everything coordinates perfectly!! no more guessing if this green is the same shade of green as the one I have at home? right?? I know!! That is pretty cool!!!
Anyhow here is a close up of all the cards made, I am sure you will love recreating them, and I have also added the video where you can see step by step how to make them all!!! 🙂
All these cards were actually made during one of my Facebook lives, where I typically show you how to make three cards using a specific product or technique, or sketch, and lately I have been sharing some of my designing tips to make card making go even easier, since a lot of the times I get questions around how do I come up with designs or how do I keep bringing ideas.. If you have time, come join me next Thursday on my Facebook page Creating with Allie at 7pm CST where you can see the next show and ask any question you might have regarding card making. I’ll be more than happy to see there! 🙂
As promised here is the video tutorial on how to make these cute cards! I go over measurements and products on this video. if you have any question that might not be answered on this tutorial, please do not hesitate in letting me know! leave me a comment below and I will get back to you.

Hello Friends!! Here are the cards we made on the facebook live event from 4/27. For this week I decided to use the same stamp set but change the background, to show you different ways to embellish the backgrounds and have different looks on your cards..
By the way the stamp set and coordinating thinlits are retiring at the end of May, so if you like this set, make sure you grab it before its gone!!
The first card is using watercolor paper!! and this one is colored with the ink pads and the aqua painters!! it is a little bit time consuming but if you use the heat tool you can accelerate the process a bit..
This one is using designer series paper to embellish the background, super easy as you can see.
And this one uses the stampin’ blends to color the background!! I think this was my favorite card and it just looks perfect for the theme with the unicorn!!
This cute unicorn comes from the magical day stamp set!! is that not gorgeous!!! It is perfect for little girls if you ask me!!
All of the unicorns were colored the same, I used memento ink, and then colored them with the stampin blends, I used the lighter shades for the hair, and then used the smoky slate for the shadows on the body and the pink pirouette for the cheeks, this always add a little personality to the critters, then of course I used the wink of stella over the hair!! I just love the shimmery look it leaves on the hair!!
The clouds from all cards are from the Up & Away thinlits!! these coordinated perfectly!! love the look, specially cause all clouds were cut from the glimmer paper from myths and magic!! this is really stunning in person!
And here is the video tutorial, where I go over dimensions and instructions on how to make all of these!! I am sure you will enjoy watching the different techniques for the background on the cards!! let me know if you have any questions, I will be happy to help you.
Also here is the supply list for all the items I use to make this card, you can click at any of the images to go to my online store, where you can purchase any of these items!! thanks a lot!! I truly appreciate your support, also don’t forget about my ordering incentive this year!!
