Cue the Confetti Card for Any Occasion

Picture Perfect Party Stampin' Up!


This is a crazy busy time of year with graduations, birthdays, retirements, weddings, take your pick.  But there's one thing that they all have in common.  They are all a perfect excuse to cue the confetti and make a card.  I'll get back to how you can transform this card for any of these occasions later in the post.

Picture Perfect Party Stampin' Up!

But first let's talk about today's happy color combination.  Today's Cue the Confetti Card was stamped with the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set, I used varying shades of Coastal Cabana, Highland Heather, Pineapple Punch, Lemon Lime Twist and Melon Mambo inks.  Hint: To make the inks a shade lighter, simply "stamp off".  Which is a fancy way of saying stamp first on scrap paper and then onto your project.

Picture Perfect Party Stampin' Up!

I know that I told you that I would lay off my new favorite dies, Stitched Labels Framelits Dies for awhile, but you'll simply have to indulge me another day.  I can't stop myself.  These dies rock!

Do you see the fun designer paper peeking out from behind my stamped panel?  That's the new 2018-2020 In Color Designer Series Paper in Pineapple Punch.  

The Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set is available now, but you'll have to wait just a wee bit longer to get your hands on the Stitched Labels dies and the In Color Designer Paper.  The 2018-2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog begins June 1, 2018 at noon Mountain Time.

Now about adapting this card to the occasion at hand.  You can use stamps from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set to keep with the birthday theme or you can venture out to other occasions with the new Itty Bitty Greeting stamp set.  Hint:  The inside of your card is also a perfect excuse to clean up those extra paper scraps from your table and put them to use right away.  I cut my inside panels 3-3/4" x 5".  I can simply insert the one that I need next.

Look No Calorie Birthday Treats

Humorous Birthday Card

Hello Friends,

Looking for a humorous birthday card idea?  How about ice cream birthday treats that are Fat Free, Sugar Free, Gluten Free, Carb Free, Caffeine Free, Peanut Free and Dairy Free?  I stamped the Birthday Wit stamp (retiring) 5 times, once each in all the 2018-2020 In Colors.  

Birthday Wit Stampin' Up!

Then, I cut and popped them up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  The Cool Treats stamp set and its Frozen Treats companion dies are the perfect compliment to this humorous verse.  Imagine Creamy Chocolate Ice Cream on a yummy sugar cone and a cool sweet strawberry popsicle.  Yummy!  And it's completely calorie free.

The new primary In Colors make quite a statement-Blueberry Bushel, Lovely Lipstick, Call Me Clover, Pineapple Punch and Grapefruit Grove.

Both the Birthday Wit and the Cool Treat Bundle are on the retirement list and are only available WHILE SUPPLIES LAST or until May 31 whichever comes first.  Scoop up a bit of ice cream and a little humor before they are gone for good.
