Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday To You Sneak Peek for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month and you know what that means, Blog Hop Day!! If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s awesome projects. If you’ve hopped over from Amy Koenders blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Celebrate”. We can interpret this any way that we’d like.

For today’s card I’m giving you a little sneak peek of an upcoming Sale-A-Bration stamp set.  I knew I wanted this set the first time I saw it at OnStage.

My colors were inspired by Fab Friday Challenge #178.  Here are their colors.

I played along with Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #329 for my design.  Here is their sketch.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday To You Cling Stamp Set, (new Sale-A-Bration item starting January 3, 2020), in Mossy Meadow Ink on the bottom of a Pear Pizzazz card front.  I embossed the Pear Pizzazz card front using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.

I wrapped a piece of the Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon around the card front then adhered the card front to a Merry Merlot mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted card front to a Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the cake image from the Happy Birthday To You stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink .  I colored the cake in using my Mossy Meadow and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Merry Merlot and Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Markers.  I fussy cut the cake using my Paper Snips and adhered the cake to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the flower centers on the cake.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Birthday To You stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the top of the cake image from the Happy Birthday To You stamp set on the bottom corner of the panel and colored it in the same as I did on the card front.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the cake image from the Happy Birthday To You stamp set on the front of the envelope.  I adhered a panel of the Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.
