Pretty Blossoms in Bloom Birthday Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

When Stampin’ UP! announced it was introducing the Stamparatus (stamp positioning tool) into its paper crafting tools I was sooooo excited, I was even more excited when I was offered the opportunity to be part of the design ‘team’ during the development phases. Since its release I have used it so much and have a series of videos sharing various techniques for this ‘oh so handy’ tool.

Today’s card is a simple one but has a few techniques, including the Stamparatus, creating greeting banners without punches or dies and a pretty bow tied with the Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon. Read on to find the links to each of these…………….

  • Base Card: 11 x 4 1/4 Soft Seafoam Card ~ scored @ 5 1/2
  • Layer 1: 5 x 3 3/4 Soft Succulent Card
  • Layer 2: 4 3/4 x 3 1/2 Basic White Card
  • Banner: 3 x 1/2 Basic White card layered onto 3 1/4 x 3/4 Soft Succulent
  • Ink Color: Soft Succulent and Soft Seafoam

The main image uses the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set along with my Stamparatus. Once the main image is stamped I added in the leaves and flower centers with my stamps on acrylic blocks

The banner greeting is popped up on a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals and the bow attached with a Mini Glue Dot.
