Stampin’ Up! Circle Sayings Birthday Card – Sneak Peek! Quick & Easy Card!

I created this fun birthday card in a matter of minutes using the Circle Sayings Bundle which includes a stamp set and a 2-3/8″ circle punch! I used the Bright & Beautiful 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper for my background which includes a lot of the new and returning colors!

I started off by using the circle punch to punch out two circles in Basic White cardstock. Then punched additional circles – one from Pretty Peacock cardstock and another from Berry Burst cardstock. Using the stamps from the Circle Sayings Stamp Set, I stamped the “Celebrate” circle sentiment onto one of the white circles using Berry Burst ink. On the same circle, I stamped the “today” sentiment in Pretty Peacock ink. On the second white circle I stamped the cupcake image using Tuxedo Black Memento ink and I used Stampin’ Blends in Bubble Bath and Lemon Lolly to color in the cupcake image. A Stampin’ Blend Color Lifter was used to lift a few highlights on the cupcake.

The white, stamped circles were matted to the Berry Burst and Pretty Peacock circles leaving a small reveal of these colors at the bottom of the white circles. A multi-color star print pattern was chosen from the Bright and Beautiful 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper Pack. The paper was cut to 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″ and adhered to the Berry Burst card front. The sentiment circle was adhered to the upper right of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and the cupcake circle was adhered to the lower left of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The “Happy Birthday” sentiment was stamped onto the inside panel using Pretty Peacock ink and I stamped the cupcake image on the lower right of the panel and colored in the image using Stampin’ Blends. The panel was adhered to a Pretty Peacock mat, then this unit was adhered to the inside of the card.

The same cupcake image was stamped onto the envelope front and colored in. I added a piece of coordinating designer series paper to the envelope flap and trimmed away the excess paper from the flap to finish off the envelope. A double bow in Lemon Lime Twist Ribbon was added to the card front using a Mini Glue Dot and I added multiple Adhesive-Backed Solid Gems to the card front. This completes this fun and easy card! So simple and such uplifting images!

We are enjoying some exceptionally fine weather in the Mid-Atlantic these last few days! As I’m writing this blog post this morning (my posts are written one day ahead of time) I am sitting by my back door listening to all of the birds singing and sipping my coffee. Life doesn’t get much better than this! I hope you get to enjoy something that makes you happy today. Make it a wonderful day!
