Stampin Up Beautiful You Birthday Card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  I had to work all weekend, but Saturday night we went to a Somerset Patriots baseball game and had a bonus since it was a fireworks night.  I haven’t been to a game in a while and it was a lot of fun.  The ball field is only about 10 minutes from my house.  The fireworks afterwards were a lot better than I expected

For today’s card I made a pretty quick one for you using one of my all time favorite sets.  Here’s my card.

I absolutely love these colors together.  These are the colors from Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #318 which I played along with.

My design came from the Fab Friday Challenge #167 which I also played along with.  Here is their sketch.

I started with a Petal Pink card front and embossed it using my Eyelet Lace Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the image from the Stampin’ Up Beautiful You Cling Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the water mark image from the Beautiful You stamp set on top of the image of the woman in Mint Macaron Ink.  I took a strip of Calypso Coral cardstock and cut it out using my Stitched Lace Dies and then adhered it to the back of the Whisper White panel using Snail.  I adhered the artwork to the embossed card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue

On a panel of Calypso Coral cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful You stamp set in VersaMark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I cut the sentiment out using the
Stitched Nested Label Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added 3 Pearl Basic Jewels to the top of the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the dancing woman image from the Beautiful You stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink, stamping off twice, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful You stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on top of the dancing woman image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a  Mint Macaron mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card off I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the woman image from the Beautiful You stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped over the woman image with the water mark image from the Beautiful You stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink.  I adhered a panel of petal pink Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper in petal pink to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  Happy Stamping!

What’s the old saying? Variety is the spice of life? At Paper Pumpkin, we like to mix things up and keep our customer’s crafting experience fresh and fun. We plan each kit carefully, allowing them to check as many creative boxes as possible while keeping our projects simple—so they can explore the world of paper crafting with confidence. With this in mind, we are bringing an elegant fall gift packaging kit to Paper Pumpkin fans this August.
Now, it’s no secret that our subscribers love cardmaking. So when we offer treat or gift packaging, you generally like to make a few card alternates with the kit. That’s why THIS month we decided to bring you the best of both worlds with the Gift of Fall Add-On Bundle.

  • Just as you would with any other Stampin’ Up! product, you will need to purchase the add-on bundle via OEX or the online store. You will not be able to add it to a Paper Pumpkin subscription purchase.
  • The price for the add-on bundle is $10.00 usd/$13.00 cad and is available for Paper Pumpkin subscribers only. This add-on is available beginning August 1, while supplies last!

  2. Great clean and simple card. Did not pay any attention to that embossing folder but your card made me take a second look. Thanks for playing with us at HSS.
