Create a “Flirty” Birthday card with the Bright & Beautiful Suite

Create a Fun Balloon Happy Birthday Card with the Bright & Beautiful Suite Collection from Stampin' Up! Mary Fish, Stampin' Pretty

I adore this fun and flirty fringe created using the die from the Beautiful Balloons Bundle, part of the Stampin’ Up! Bright & Beautiful Suite.  And there’s so much more birthday “magic” to be made with the dies and stamps.  The entire collection is available for purchase now as part of the new Stampin’ Up! 2023-2024 Annual Catalog.

WHAT I LOVE !  Texture can make such a statement.  These fringed layers remind me of a piñata.  How perfect for a birthday card!

Create this Mix and Match Thanks Friend card with the Saying Something Ephemera Pack by Stampin' Up! Mary Fish, Stampin' Pretty

Have you spotted the NEW Mix & Match products and ideas on pages 18 – 21 of the Stampin’ Up! 2024-2025 Annual Catalog?  The color coordinated card fronts and envelopes (Sunny Springs Cards & Envelopes) offer a quick and budget friendly way (just $8 each) to create a variety of “ready to go” fabulous cards.  Keep the look simple with just an added sentiment, “mix & match” the different ephemera packs (great gift idea, too) or dress them up with just few extras (not included) as I did on today’s card (Saying Something Ephemera Pack).

WHAT I LOVE!  Saying Something Ephemera Pack is loaded with crisply die cut sentiments for every occasion.  No ink or dies needed!  Don’t be shy about using more than one sentiment (I did) on a card front.  TIP:  The Saying Something Ephemera Pack fits neatly inside a standard stamp case (Item 119105).

    • Me, too! I need to use those fringe scissors! Hope I can make it look as even and neat! 🙂

  1. Mary, you are so clever to use the DSP to make the ombre fringe. It is an adorable card. Enjoy your day!
