Stampin’ Up Sweetest Thing Birthday Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  We’re half way through another week, I hope yours is going well.

For today I used one of the fun new bundles called Sweetest Things.  When I saw this set I just knew I had to have it.  When you purchase the bundle you save 10%.  The bundle includes the stamp set and the framelits dies.  Here is my card.

I started with a Whisper White card front and using my Big Shot I ran it through with the Tufted Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to a Gorgeous Grape mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Using my Square Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies and Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies I cut out one of each from the How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper. I adhered both the stitched square and stitched rectangle to Gorgeous Grape mats using Snail.

I adhered the rectangle to the left side of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the square to the right of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the candy jar image from the Sweetest Thing stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the candies from the same stamp set inside the jar in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink also.
I colored the candies in using my Coastal Cabana, Gorgeous Grape, Granny Apple Green, Melon Mambo and Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Write Markers.  Using my Big Shot and the Jar Of Sweets Framelits Dies, I cut the candy jar out and adhered it to the center of my stitched square using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Sweetest Thing stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink on a strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I made a banner, edged it with my Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Write Marker and adhered it across the jar using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I wrapped a piece of the Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon around the card front and tied a knot.  I adhered the card front to a Coastal Cabana card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
On the inside I stamped the Happy Birthday from the Sweetest Thing stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink.  I stamped the frame from the same stamp set in Coastal Cabana Ink around the sentiment.  I adhered a piece of the How Sweet It Is DSP to the bottom of the Whisper White panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Gorgeous Grape mat using Snail then to the Coastal Cabana card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the candy jar and candies from the Sweetest Thing stamp set on the envelope front.  I colored them in the same as I did on the card front.  I adhered a piece of How Sweet It Is DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  Happy Stamping!!
