Fun Fold Birthday card

Now here is that 4th card from the Birthday Bingo.  I thought I had posted it but do not see the post.  It’s a fun fold card that shows both sides of the Designer Paper.  The Happiness Blooms Designer Paper is what this whole set of cards used.  It is bright and cheerful and I love it for birthday cards. I posted the other cards already and I filmed a FB Live video showing you how to make all 4 of them.  You can view my April 15, 2019 FB live video HERE

The main part of the card is actually a 4″ x 12″ strip of the Happiness Blooms Designer paper.  It is scored and folded and then glued to a piece of Night of Navy and a piece of Whisper White is added to the inside for you to write on.  The front is decorated with the Piece of Cake stamp set, Night of Navy Baker’s Twine and Enamel Dots.

Well Written Blooms Birthday

I had planned on saying that this was the 4th card from my Birthday Bingo event, but as I scrolled back through my posts I can only find where I shared 2 cards so far.  So I guess this makes the 3rd one of the set.  And I’ll have to share the 4th one with you in another post.  Plus since I posted the others I filmed a FB Live video showing you how to make all 4 of them plus the box that I stored them all in – or use it for a gift for someone.  Would it be weird to give someone one a set of birthday cards as a birthday gift? 

You can view my April 15, 2019 FB live video HERE.  I show you how to make this card plus three more.

This one is quite quick if you use the Adhesive Sheets on your paper before you die cut out the words.  By the way the adhesive sheets are retiring so be sure to order them now before they sell out.  I used the Happiness Blooms Designer Series paper and the Enamel Dots on this one.  That was where the color scheme came from.  Die cut the words from the Well Written dies – these will be in our new catalog by the way.  And so will the enamel dots – you can see here that I used the dot on my i in birthday.  That’s easier than trying to keep up with the one that gets cut.  If you use the adhesive sheets all you do is peel off the backing and stick your words on your card.

Supply List

  • #148795 Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper
  • #148802 Happiness Blooms Cardstock Pack
  • #148805 Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots
  • #100730 Whisper White Cardstock
  • #143263 Big Shot Die Cutting Machine
  • #148534 Well Written Dies
  • #144106 Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets
  • #146336 Night of Navy Medium Baker’s Twine

This card actually has no stamping on it.  Just the die-cutting and assembly. On the inside is a piece of Whisper White card stock and a matching strip of the Designer Paper.  As we near the end of the Occasions Catalog and the Annual Catalog there are many retiring products.  Be sure to order what you want now before it is gone – the Designer Paper, Navy Twine and Adhesive sheets are some of what is retiring. The link to get to my online store is below.

Another Piece of Cake

About a month ago I held a Birthday Bingo event and it was so much fun!  Everyone that attended made four cards featuring the Piece of Cake Bundle and the Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper.  My last post was one of the cards and today I’m sharing another one. 

UPDATED: You can view my April 15, 2019 FB live video HERE.  I show you how to make this card plus three more.

I love the new Dot to Dot Textured Impressions Embossing Folder that is part of the Happiness Blooms Suite.  It can add a fun background to your cards.  All the cards we made used the Night of Navy classic ink.  And for this one I used the Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write Marker to color in the dripping frosting on the cake.

Supply List

  • #148610 Piece of Cake stamp set
  • #148525 Cake Builder punch
  • #150579 Piece of Cake Bundle 10% savings
  • #148795 Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper
  • #148802 Happiness Blooms Cardstock Pack
  • #148805 Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots
  • #100730 Whisper White Cardstock
  • #147110 Night of Navy Classic Stampin’ Pad

  • #148533 Dot to Dot Embossing Folder
  • #147156 Subtles Stampin’ Write Markers (Calypso Coral)
  • #143263 Big Shot Die Cutting Machine

On the inside of the card I added a Whisper White layer and a strip of the Designer Series paper that was on the front of the card.

Santa’s Workshop Notes

Late in November I held a Santa’s Workshop Bingo event.  It was so much fun!  The theme was Santa’s Workshop and I used products from the very popular Santa’s Workshop Suite in the Holiday Catalog.  Everyone received a good bag full of supplies for their projects and lots of extras to take home.  We had stamping and played some bingo for prizes.  Yummy little snacks to eat and it lots of laughter and fun.  It was  perfect afternoon to start the Christmas season.

One of the projects that everyone made was this Santa’s Workshop Note pad.  I use lots of note pads – I’m a list person.  And this time of year there are lists for everything.  So this was not only cute but a practical project too.

I found notepads at the office supply store and measured those and then measured a piece of card stock to fold around it.  Don’t forget to include the depth of the spine and any over hang you want.  Then I decorated the front with a strip of paper from the Santa’s Workshop Specialty Designer Series paper and a card from the Santa’s Workshop Memories & More card pack.  It’s tied shut with a piece of the Poppy Parade ribbon.

Supply List

  • Poppy Parade card stock
  • Garden Green card stock
  • Santa’s Workshop Specialty Designer Series paper
  • Poppy Parade 1/2″ Textured Weave Ribbon
  • Santa’s Workshop Memories & More Card Pack
  • Tear & Tape
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals

I used some paper and one of the stickers from the Memories & More card pack to decorate the little note pad.  Then attach it with Tear & Tape to the inside.  Tie the the cover shut with the ribbon and then slip in your favorite holiday pencil. There are a variety of stickers in the Memories & More card pack – use those to decorate your pages as desired.

Bubble Over Bingo

I wanted to share a recap of my Bubble Over Bingo event at the end of January.  It was so much fun!  I had a full house with all 12 seats in my little classroom taken.  Everyone had fun playing Bingo games and making their projects.  I also made everyone a little table treat for when they arrived and a little thank you gift.  Everyone had a goody bag with the Bubble Over stamp set, Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes and supplies for their projects.  The prize winners also went home with additional goodies – like the Bottles & Bubbles Framelits Dies, card stock packs, ribbon, Bubbles & Fizz Designer Paper and more.  Everybody went home with something fun.  I hope you’ll join me the next time I have a Bingo event.

Here are some photos from the day:

 

Here is a close up of the little Bottle Cap Treats that were on the table for everyone. I actually found bottle cap candy to go in them.

A fun time was had by all!
