Welcome to this month’s Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring the theme Happy Birthday.  I am excited to share another project with you today.  Fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the globe are participating, so we have lots of fun projects to share with you. I hope you get loads of creative inspiration from them. You may have started here, or arrived from the talented Tracy Held’s blog.  Wasn’t her project amazing? Either way, you’re in the right place!

I chose to use the beautiful Balloons Bundle because it fits the bill for the birthday theme perfectly, but also because I love the colours in the DSP, especially Lemon-Lime Twist, Berry Burst and Blueberry Bushell, which have all returned after retirement for a new lease on life.


Bundle: –Beautiful Balloons

Inks: –  Blueberry Bushell, Berry Burst

Card: – Blueberry Bushell, Lemon-Lime Twist, Berry Burst, Bubble Bath, Whisper White

Paper: Bright & Beautiful DSP

Tools: – Stylish Shapes Dies, 2 3/4 ” circle punch, Metal Plate 3D Embossing Folder

Embellishments: Bakers twine, Stampin’ Dimensionals


I also love the die in the bundle that creates the gorgeous fringe that I have used on the DSP strip on the RHS of the card.

This card has an element of a fancy fold as the card front has been trimmed short in width to accommodate the strip of “fringed” DSP adhered to the inside of the card back. So bright and fun-filled, anyone would love to receive this card.

Below is a close up view of the focal point.


I really love the clean bright colours and images in this suite, so perfect for birthday cards for anyone special in your life.

I hope you are inspired by my card. I’d love to know what you think.

Thanks for hopping by,

til next time,
