Pals Blog Hop – Birthday Bonanza!

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team created “Birthday Bonanza” projects to inspire you to make for all of your family and friends. We hope you enjoy and are inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments because we all love hearing from you! At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I chose products from the Whale of a Time Suite to create a birthday card for this hop. Everything about this suite is great, but I have to say that my favorite part is the Whale of a Time Designer Series Paper. The paper is so beautiful and versatile that you almost don’t need any other products to create an awesome card!

For this card, I actually used 3 pieces of the DSP. The first one is for the beautiful background. I used this one for the two turtles.

And this one is used for the light blue circle.

Whale of a Time Birthday Bonanza Card Instructions

Cut

  • Pool Party Card Base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, score at 4-1/4″
  • Pacific Point – 5-1/4″ x 4″
  • Pacific Point – 3-1/2″ x 1″
  • Whale of a Time Designer Series Paper – 5″ x 3-3/4″

Stamp

  • Using the birthday sentiment from the Whale Done stamp set and the Stamparatus position tool, stamp with Versamark on the 3-1/2″ x 1″ piece of Pacific Point cardstock. Cover with white embossing powder and melt with the heating tool.

Punch

  • Use the 2-1/4″ Circle Punch to punch a Pacific Point circle. Use the 2″ Circle Punch to punch out the top of the DSP mentioned above.

Cut and Tape

  • Cut a 7″ piece of Pool Party Sheer Ribbon and spread it across the background piece of DSP. Use scotch tape to adhere both ends to the back.

Assemble

  • Run some Stampin’ Seal or Multipurpose Glue on the back of the DSP with the ribbon and adhere it to the piece of Pacific Point.
  • Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to glue that piece to the card base.
  • Use the photo above as a guide to glue the sentiment and the two circles to the card with Stampin’ Seal.
  • Use mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the turtles to the card as shown.

Sparkle

  • Place some of the clear embellishments from the Frosty and Clear Epoxy Droplets pack on the card.
