Hello Blossoms: Birthday Card For Laura

 Stampin' Up! hand made female birthday card

Today is my niece Laura’s birthday. Laura is my cousin Lisa’s daughter and in my heart Lisa is like a sister to me and Laura like a niece.  I wanted to share the birthday card I made for her.

Stampin' Up! Hello Blossoms Birthday Card

This birthday card is pretty straight forward. I used the Stampin’ Up! retired stamp set Hello Blossoms. This is a take on an older card I made. I used Peach Parfait,  Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz Ink and card stock. Green brads and a Bow made from Baker’s Twine finishes this birthday card off. Laura LOVES frogs hence the Lucky Limeade.


Directions to make this card:

Pear Pizzazz Card Stock         5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″  and score it at 4-1/4″

Whisper White Card Stock    5″ x 3-3/4″ and  4-1/4″ x 3″

Blushing Bride Card Stock    4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″


I took my Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride and Wild Wasabi Markers and inked up the  Hello Blossoms Stamp and stamped it on the smaller Whisper White piece of Card Stock.  I didn’t quite center it. I stamped it a bit to the right, so I had some balance in the design when I put the bow on. I also didn’t want a solid inked image, so I went light with the markers.


I then inked up the Happy Birthday from the Bring on the Cake Stamp  in Pear Pizzazz and stamped it under the Hello Blossoms. I lined it up to the left to have room for the one blossom I wanted to stamp at the end of the happy birthday.


I added some Green Galore Brads (retired) to each flower center.


Happy Birthday Laura!


Check back tomorrow for another button project.  Oh, joy!

Pillow Box: Picnic Fork Holder

Welcome Back Stampers!


Just a quick post to share this adorable fork holder made from the Big Shot Pillow Box Die. I’ll be posting more designs in the future using this same idea. Maybe you can make a few of these for your Memorial Day  and summer BBQ’s.

Pillow Box Fork Holder

To make this holder, simply run your Pillow Box Die through your Big Shot using the Card Stock of choice. I used Poppy Parade.


Cut off one end of the Pillow Box on the score lines. Pillow Box Holder Detail


Place Sticky Strip on the side flap and adhere.


Fold bottom score lines to enclose.


Cut a 1′ x 4-1/4″ strip of Designer Series Paper to wrap around holder. You can also use a 1-1/2″ or 2″ strip. I used the Pawsitively Prints II Designer Series Paper.


For the center image I stamped two flowers from the new Hello Blossoms from the Stampin’ Up! Summer Mini. I used my Poppy Parade and Pear Pizzazz Markers.


Using the Wide Oval Punch, I punched the flowers out.


In the center of each flower I punched out a Tempting Turquoise circle and glued it with Tombow Multi-Purpose Glue. The blue really pops off the red and matches the napkins I’ve had forever in a kitchen drawer.


Have fun making these for all your family gatherings!
