Birthday Card Week | Number of Years Birthday Card

How to make a fun 40th Birthday card using Number of Years from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah Birthday Card Week Number of Years Birthday Card

StampinByHannah Independent Stampin' Up! UK Demonstrator Birthday Card week

Yes, today we continue Birthday Card Week! I know that you make more Birthday Cards than anything else and I get more requests from family and friends to make Birthday cards than any other card. So today I have a fun Birthday Card with a bit of a wow factor…

Fun and modern handmade 40th Birthday card using Number of Years from Stampin' Up!

I’m such a sucker from a great colour combination, and I REALLY love this one! Tranquil Tide, Lemon Lime Twist and Melon Mambo.

There are a number of layers on this card… (I would apologise, but I am having heaps of fun with lots of elements at the moment!)

  • Background embossed with the New Simple Stripes Embossing Folder
  • Vellum leaves from the Leaf Punch
  • Lemon Lime Twist square die cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelits
  • Melon Mambo banner (die cut using the Large Numbers dies)
  • Numbers stamped in Melon Mambo and die cut using the coordinating dies
  • Heat Embossed sentiments
  • Hearts & Stars Elements

Tranquil Tide 40th Birthday Card using Number of Years from Stampin' Up!

The Hearts & Stars Elements are so pretty. The top star is adhered with Multipurpose Liquid Glue, while the lower one is not actually stuck at all, but rather trapped as the dimensional holding the sentiment in place is actually in the centre of it.

What type of card do you  make most of?

Fresh Florals 18th Birthday Card

Birthday Card using Fresh Florals and Number of Years from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah Fresh Florals 18th Birthday Card

We had a BIG birthday in our family yesterday. My Sister-in-Law turned 18! As usual James (my husband) requested a card for his sister… but he couldn’t have a normal card! Oh no, he had made a CD of some very embarrassing music for her, and so wanted a nice card for it to go in. While I’m not going to share a tutorial for this … its just quite a specific request! I will share the card as a whole with you.

Birthday Card using Fresh Florals and Number of Years from Stampin' Up!

Because this card was designed to fit a CD in it, it is a different size to my usual card creations. I do love making a square card every now and again, and this one has layers of Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper and Vellum (Yum!).

Card Measurements:

Card stock – Berry Burst – 10 x 5″ (25 x 12.5 cm)

Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper – 4 3/4 x 4 3/4″ ( 12 x 12 cm)

Vellum – 4 x 4″ (10 x 10 cm)

Fresh Florals Pink Happy Birthday Card using Number of Years from Stampin' Up!

I think Stampin’ Up! have the most perfect stamp set (and coordinating dies) for BIG birthdays…. the Number of Years stamp set and Large Numbers dies. These are BIG! Not only does the stamp set include numbers 0-8, it also has some really handy sentiments AND some pretty floral stamps too. Here I stamped the ’18’ in Whisper White Craft Ink onto Berry Burst card stock, and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. The rest of the sentiment is also stamped in Berry Burst, and also die cut from the Large Numbers dies.

Fresh Florals 18th Birthday Card Envelope using Number of Years from Stampin' Up!

I couldn’t just give my Sister-In-Law (Bella) a pretty card in a boring envelope could I? So, I used the Envelope Punch Board to make this fabulous envelope! It also uses the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper, but in Fresh Fig this time. I LOVE making envelopes from Designer Series Paper, but writing on it can be a little tricky… so I created a tag for the front instead. I used the Number of Years stamp set again to stamp ’18’ in Berry Burst (stamped off once) and added her name using the Labeler Alphabet stamped in Fresh Fig.

Envelope Measurements:

Designer Series Paper – 8 1/8 x 8 1/8″

Punched and Scored at 4 1/8″ using the Envelope Punch Board

Closing homemade envelopes can be tricky… here I opted to wrap the envelope with some 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon in Whisper White. So pretty!

Christmas Countdown | Calorie-free Advent Countdown!

Christmas Countdown Calorie Free Advent Calendar Video Tutorial using Merry Little Christmas from Stampin' Up

StampinByHannah Christmas Countdown | Calorie-free Advent Countdown!Christmas Countdown Video Tutorial Series StampinByHannah Stampin' Up! UK

Hello!

Every year I make an advent calendar for my husband…. I vary the chocolates every year, and he LOVES it (yes, he really is just a big kid!). Two years ago I made a larger one that could hold two chocolates … but this year I am trying to be more careful about my chocolate intake. So, while I have made one for James (that’s coming to a YouTube channel near you NEXT friday!) I still wanted something for myself!

I spend FAR too long on social media (don’t we all!) and spotted a similar project a few weeks ago… But I cannot for the life of my remember where I saw it, or who it was! However, here is my Calorie Free Advent Calender….

Christmas Countdown Calorie Free Advent Calendar Video Tutorial using Merry Little Christmas from Stampin' Up

I am loving this Basic Black and Old Olive colour combination for Christmas this year…. I made a card using the same combination earlier in the week (you can find it HERE!)

My other favourite product in this project is the awesome Everyday Label Punch, as well as coordinating with TWO stamp sets in the Autumn/Winter catalogue…. it makes the perfect layer on your cards and projects… especially when punched out of Vellum (Yum!)

Measurements:

For the numbers….

Basic Black card stock – 3 x 3″ (7.5 x 7.5 cm)

Whisper White layer – 2 3/4 x 2 3/4″ (7 x 7 cm)

 

For the Frame….

The frame is THIS one from Ikea….. LOVE Ikea, don’t you!

Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper – 22 x 22 cm

Whisper White Layer – 20 x 20 cm

Christmas Countdown Calorie Free Advent Calendar Video Tutorial using Merry Little Christmas from Stampin' Up!

My favourite part of this project is the leaf wreath. Punched out using the Leaf Punch, a whole heap of leaves in Basic Black and Old Olive…. adhered to the backing with Hot Glue. By using my Glue Gun I was able to give the wreath some extra dimension, as not all the leaves lay flat.

What is your Christmas Crafting tradition?

Inspire.Create.Challenges #002 | Happy 30th Birthday!

Inspire.create.challenges bold and bright 30th birthday card using Number of years from Stampin' Up!

Hello! It’s time for another Inspire.Create.Challenge! I know, the first one went so quickly…. hope you are going to take part this time around too! Check out the Inspire.Create.Challenges blog for a heap more inspiration with this weeks Sketch Challenge.

Inspire.Create.Challenge 002 Papercraft Sketch challenge

I love a simple sketch… and so designed this sketch to give the Design Team as much freedom as I could without presenting them with a large empty box! At the time of writing this, I haven’t seen what they have made with it, and I cannot wait to see! They are all so talented, and I know that everyone’s creations are going to be so different!

Inspire.create.challenges bold and bright 30th birthday card using Number of years from Stampin' Up!

I really wanted to create something bright! My mum always complains my cards are muted colours… so I might make another version of this one for her birthday coming up! The stamp set at work here is Number of Years, along with the coordinating Large Numbers framelits.

The panel is in Crumb Cake, stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The numbers are the same, but stamped onto Melon Mambo card stock instead.

Inspire.create.challenges bold and bright 30th birthday card using Number of years from Stampin' Up!

The sentiment is then stamped in Lemon Lime Twist and heat embossed in clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder. This quick and easy technique creates coloured embossing in any colour! There are two ways to do this:

  1. Ink your stamp in Versamark and then the colour… then add your Embossing Powder
  2. Ink you stamp in your coloured ink and then quickly add your Embossing Powder (this works well on Vellum as inks take a while longer to dry rather than card stock!)

Here the sentiment is heat embossed on Vellum, and stapled to a scrap of Whisper White (anyone else LOVE staples, or is it just me?!).

Sunday Colour Splash | Need a Special Reason…. 96th Birthday card

Special Birthday card using Special Reason and Number of Years from Stampin' Up! UK

We are so blessed in our family to have celebrated James’ Nannys’ 96th birthday in January. She is just such a special person, and so using the Special Reason bundle to make her card just made sense to me.
Special Birthday card using Special Reason and Number of Years from Stampin' Up! UK

This card caused me so many problems! I had originally stamped and embossed the 96 onto Night of Navy card stock…. except I have totally lost the 6 die! I have turned my Crafty Office upside down trying to find it, I am hoping that it has fallen down the side of my desk (which is actually a chest of drawers) but moving everything to have a look hasn’t quite happened yet.

The Special Reason bundle is so fabulous, I am loving the dies so much. This bundle features in my next Online Card Class which launches on Tuesday…. I cannot wait!

Special Birthday card using Special Reason and Number of Years from Stampin' Up! UKBecause this card was for James to give to Nanny, I had to stamp the inside too … it’s always James special request, that and that I put my details on the back. He is so funny

Right, what is the Sunday Colour Splash title all about….. well, I would LOVE to see you make a card with these colours.


Share your creations with me by clicking on the BLUE button below, and I will select a winner on Saturday 18th February 2017. The winner will be contacted by Email and announced over on my Facebook page, I will share the winning creation on my Sunday Colour Splash post next week… oh and I will pop a hand stamped card into the post for them too! Yay!

Love you Lots Birthday Card

Childrens birthday card using love you lots from Stampin' Up! UK

I am still sharing my heap of family birthday cards, I had so many birthday’s this month and actually had a couple of custom card orders to make too. I shared the birthday card I made for my mum to send for the same gorgeous little girl last week, but just had to share the card that I sent as well.

Childrens birthday card using love you lots from Stampin' Up! UK

How cute is that elephant?! I have been told that the recipient of this card LOVED the elephant, and I have to agree, just something about the sketchy look!

This elephant is from the Love you Lots stamp set, which is one of a collection of sets that you can choose from when you spend over £150, or host a party that spends more that £150. £150 is like Stampin’ Up!’s magic number, at this number you start to earn Stampin’ Rewards, aka FREE ££££ to spend on anything you like in the catalogue, including the Reward Exclusives.

3rd Birthday card using Love you lots from Stampin' Up! UK

The 3 is stamped and die cut using the wonderful Large Numbers dies and Number of Years stamp set, actually the Happy Birthday is taken from the same set.

Hope you love this simple birthday card as much as a cute little 3 year old!
