Birthday cards made with sale-a-bration sets

As promised- I am back with a couple of cards that I made that feature one of the Sale-a-bration stamp sets that you can select for FREE with every purchase of Stampin’ up! merchandise that reaches $100.

Here is the first card- a birthday card I made for one of my nephews (featuring the Good Morning Sunshine Designer series paper)

A bet you got a little distracted by that lovely cupcake.  Nope- that’s not the FREE Sale-a-bration stamp set- The cupcake stamp is “Simple Birthday Thanks” ($33.95 page 45 of the catalogue)  I simply stamped the image several times on different coloured patterned paper and then cut out the image and pieced them together.  Can you spot the stamped image from the Sale-a-bration stamp set?  Here let me help you find it……

 

The stamped image is the curly label style stamp with the “Happy Birthday” greeting stamped over the top.   I stamped on patterned paper and then used my curly label punch to punch out the image.  These stamps are from the set called “VINTAGE LABELS” (pictured below)

I also made another birthday card using this VINTAGE LABELS stamp set- this time for one of my brothers.  The colours in this card are Basic Gray, Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss and Kraft (inspired by the colours in the Urban Oasis Designer Series paper)

As you can see I have stamped and punched 4 curly label images. On one of these images I included the best wishes greeting stamp from the set.

To add an element of fun I also included the cake image from the “Greetings Eight” Stamp set (pg 57) as well as the balloon image from the “Crazy for cupcakes” stamp set (pg 44)

Here is a close up of the slice of cake.  The candle light is the bling part of a rhinestone brad.  I simply opened up the brad and popped the rhinestone out.  It can be easily secured in place with some Tombow glue or glue dots.

If you are interested in receiving VINTAGE LABELS (and/ or one of the other sale-a-bration stamp sets) for FREE- please be sure to get in touch with me to place your $100 order

Cheers!

  1. Such a bold coloured card Miriam. Love it to bits. This set is on the wish thingy (as are another two as well…LOL). TFS some brilliant ideas. ooxx

  2. Love the balloon and cake images in the second card, Miriam – and the colours look fantastic together. I’m feeling inspired to have a play with my as-yet-uninked Vintage Labels set!
