#imbringingbirthdaysback Card Buffet (Part Two)

As I mentioned yesterday, I was going to share more of the creations that were made at my recent #imbringingbirthdaysback card buffet.

This card was inspired due to my wanting spring to come…and STAY! This weekend’s weather changed every five to ten minutes. I want warmth and sunshine to stick around a lot longer than that!

Ice Cream Social

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ICE CREAM! YUMMY….

LOVE the dainty-ness of this Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper (140557) from our Occasions Catalog. This along with the fragility of the Helping Me Grow (140764) flowers makes me wish for warmer weather as well. This card could be used as a lovely Mother’s Day card by changing up the sentiment.

Honeysuckle

One of Stampin’ Up!’s mottos is to CASE (Copy And Share Everything). The card above is one that I cased  from my 2nd up-line, Kelly. This card also utilizes the flowers from the stamp set Helping Me Grow (140764).

The simpleness of the sentiment of this “Just for You” card gives you a myriad of ways that this card could be used. It could be used as a birthday card, shower card, or even a wedding card.

The last card that my friends could choose to make was this fun beer mug. So many of my friends and family could get this card…SO APPROPRIATE! I LOVE the sentiment of “You look way better at this age than I thought you would!”. I think I know exactly who will be getting this card next, Curly! hehehehehehehe

#imbringingbirthdaysback Card Buffet

We had great fun creating birthday cards a few weeks ago. I had a sassy group of women join me in an effort to jump on the viral bandwagon of #imbringingbirthdaysback!

Here is the fun stamp (143573) that you can purchase to stamp your envelopes, etc.

Here are some of our creations from that event.

LOVE this pappa bear that has been fishing (139546) and he’s taking his catch home. “Wishing you a day full of sunshine and a lake full of fish — Happy Birthday”. If my dad were still with us, he would DEFINITELY be getting this card!

I wound up embossing this bear with the Stampin’ Emboss Powder in Early Espresso. The “World’s Greatest Guy” is stamped using the Tuxedo Black Momento Ink. LOVE this ink and use it often!

Our next card to be showcased is my personal favorite stamp from Sale-A-Bration — “Put Your Party Pants On”. This time, I made some ADORABLE britches using the Punch Label Washi (138296). I added some washi tape to the tops of the pants and stamped the inside with a simple “happy birthday” greeting. Fun, fun, FUN!!!

This card came back into the rotation–but I did get a better picture of it than what I had posted before. I LOVE the contrast with the black, grey, red foil and silver glimmer tape that was my second favorite Sale-A-Bration freebie!

Put Your Party Pants On

I LOVE the Balloon Celebration Photopolymer Stamp Set (140675) that coordinates with our Balloon Bouquet Punch (140609).

Put Your Party Pants On Inside

My next card just screams spring to me. I used the Big Shot Honeycomb (129378) for the background to make it look like chicken wire. I just inked up the raised edge of the embossing folder and closed it and just transferred the ink while running on the folder. SO CUTE!!

Happy Birthday Chick

The inside was plain, with the exception of the washi tape that I used on the very left-most edge. I thought that it looked like chicken feet and thought it added to the card. What do you think?

Next card buffet is scheduled for Saturday, April 30 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at UW Oshkosh in Sage Hall, Room 3206. You can choose six cards to make for $15.
