Super Simple Balloon Adventures Birthday Card


A Balloon Adventures birthday card is easy with the Party Animal Suite available on January 4th when the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog begins. Only six more days and you can order this festive birthday suite of products.


  • To get the party started, the confetti stamp from Balloon Adventures Photopolymer Stamp set was stamped in Versamark ink then heat embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss powder on the card front. The images are subtle and add a bit of texture.

  • The Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits Dies create the gorgeous bow and “ribbons” that cross the 2″ square birthday gift.
  • The sentiment was stamped on Whisper White Thick Card Stock.  The outline was lightly traced with a pencil to snip out with Paper Snips and popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals. The result is a fun shape around the sentiment for this card.


  • It’s all in the details.  Using a standard A2 card (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″), cut off 5/8″ from the front of the card and add the whimsical Party Animal Designer Washi tape. This adds a creative element that is seen when the card is open and closed.
  • The sentiment on the front of the card and the inside of the card are from the Balloon Adventures Photopolymer Stamp Set that coordinates with the Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits Dies. Purchase them as a bundle and save 10%.


  • Party on!  Here’s an alternate idea from Stampin’ Up! using the Balloon Adventures stamp set.
