Paper Crafting Blog Hop June 2023 - Birthdays!!


 Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop for June 2023 - featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia. We have a wide array of projects and design styles to share with you this month - all about Birthdays!


So birthdays are all about the fun - right? So I made a nothing but fun card using the Beautiful Balloons bundle from the annual catalog.
#161457 Beautiful Balloons Bundle $52.00
This set is full of balloons and tassles and confetti and fringes - but my favorite part of the bundle is the STARS! I just think they are so fun.

This card is so simple and fast to create - and I just love the look of it. It's a Basic White base, a 4" x 5 1/4" layer of the Bright & Beautiful DSP (there are a ton of great patterns in the package to make this card.)
#161449 - Bright & Beautiful DSP - $12.50 (on sale June of 2023 for $10.62)
I took a layer of Basic White 3 3/4" x 5" and randomly die cut stars to give me the peek-a-boo windows. Then popped that up on top of the DSP. Using several Blends (Dark Bubble Bath, Light Misty Moonlight, Light Pretty Peacock, Light Lemon Lime Twist) I colored the punched out stars to match the colors of the DSP.

Then add them and the sentiment banner to the front of the card - it's so fun and super simple! One star left over was added to the inside of the card.

I featured another version of this on my FB Live recently - here is the link if you are interested in seeing that -- CLICK HERE
