Today’s birthday card is so fun! It just makes you smile, doesn’t it? 🙂 The new Sale-a-Bration free “Driving By” Stamp Set is cute and retro, and I’m really enjoying it!

This card uses another free Sale-a-Bration item: the Simply Marbelous 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper. It forms the background for the birthday bus 🙂 And the color of the paper sets the tone for the entire card. The colors used are Flirty Flamingo, Blushing Bride, and Mint Macaron.

The cute bus was colored with Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers and cut with a die from the Stitched So Sweetly Die set. Underneath is a piece of Mint Macaron cardstock cut with a bit larger die from the same set. The large letters were cut using the Playful Alphabet Dies. And some sweet little flowers are scattered about.

As you hop from blog to blog, don’t forget to leave comments ~ we love hearing from you! You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Handmade Happy Birthday Card made with the Driving By Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! by Peggy. Noe of Pretty Paper Cards #drivingby #drivingbystampset #peggynoe #prettypapercards #stampinup #stampingup

My project features the adorable Driving By Stamp Set. It’s such a fun set, and it has this cute old bus stamp. My (adult) son is having a birthday soon, and he has a green bus just like this one. So I just HAD TO use this set to create his birthday card! 

Handmade Happy Birthday Card made with the Driving By Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! by Peggy. Noe of Pretty Paper Cards #drivingby #drivingbystampset #peggynoe #prettypapercards #stampinup #stampingup #volkswagonbuscard

I stamped the busses, one on top of the other, and colored them with Old Olive and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers. One bus was stamped separately and the balloons from the set were added to the back of the bus. It was lifted up on Stampin’ Dimensionals so it would stand out.

The sentiment. is from the Art Gallery stamp set. I stamped it several times on some Simply Marbelous Designer Series Paper (also a Sale-a-Bration Free Gift!!) and then cut the words apart and adhered them around with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The flowers were cut using some cute little flower dies from the Bouquet of Love Hybrid Embossing Folder. And of course each flower needs a bit of bling 🙂

Have you seen the FREE GIFTS in the Sale-a-Brataion Catalog? They are fabulous! And today I want to show you my favorite Sale-a-Bration item: the Friendly Hello Bundle. It includes a stamp set AND designer series paper!

Here’s a replay of my Facebook Live showing you more about this Bundle and how to create today’s card:

 

The largest stamp in the set is a sweet bird with flowers. The sentiments are general and ones that you will use often. It’s a great all-around set. And, it comes with beautiful paper. For this card I’ve used one of my favorite patterns behind the bird.

The new year is a great time to stock up on birthday cards. I think I’m going to make several of these to have on hand in the coming months.

Biggest Wish Cork Guy’s Birthday Card!

Handmade Birthday Card Using Cork Paper and the Biggest Wish Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! created by Peggy Noe of Pretty Paper Cards #biggestwishstampset #stampinup #stampingup #christmascheerdies #peggynoe #prettypapercards.com

We always need guy’s birthday cards, don’t we? Well, I’ve discovered that the Cork Specialty Paper makes fabulous cards for guys.

For this card, the card base of Early Espresso cardstock is topped with a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of the Cork Specialty Paper. The Christmas Cheer Dies were used to cut the word “happy” also from Early Espresso cardstock.

In the bottom right corner, a 2″ x 2″ square of Early Espresso backs another piece of the cork paper. The cork was stamped with the word “birthday” from the Biggest Wish stamp set, using Versamark Ink. Black Embossing Powder was poured on the Versamark Ink and heated with the Heat Tool. I love the way the embossed black looks on the cork. Some Brushed Metallic Adhesive Dots were added for bling 🙂

Garden Birdhouse Birthday!

Garden Birdhouse Card Stampin' Up! Pretty Paper Cards #gardenbirdhouses #peggynoe #prettypapercards #stampinup #stampingup #birthdaycard

These little birdhouses are so cute, and the tiny birds are even cuter! Today I’ve used the Garden Birdhouses stamp set to make a birthday card that has some sponge daubing and some ink blending 🙂

Garden Birdhouse Card Stampin' Up! Pretty Paper Cards #gardenbirdhouses #peggynoe #prettypapercards #stampinup #stampingup

On top of a Cajun Craze card base is a 3-3/4″ x 5″ piece of Basic White cardstock.This piece was colored with Blending Brushes, using Balmy Blue ink on the top half and Granny Apple Green on the lower half.

Then the birdhouses were stamped with Crumb Cake ink, and the little birds were stamped with Cajun Craze and colored in with Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends.

Now, for the cute little leaves! They are from the Sparkle of the Season Bundle. This is where I used the Sponge Daubers. I sponged three different ink colors on each leaf stamp: Cajun Craze, Flirty Flamingo, and Crushed Curry. After I sponge on the colors, I “huff” on the stamp with my mouth. This moistens the ink so that it stamps perfectly! The leaves were then cut out with the coordinating dies and adhered to the card with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
