3 Birthday Cards…

I’m in Salt Lake City this week for the Stampin’ Up annual convention. Well actually, I’m here a few days early, squeezing in some time for another passion of mine, genealogy.  I’m still working on some needle-in-the-haystack ancestors from Virginia and Ohio. Salt Lake has one of the largest collections of records in the US.  I love the hunt and I’m excited for what I might find!  Wish me luck!

I love to swap with other talented stampers and this month, I picked 3 to share with you. They have a common theme and color palette!

I’m in love with Amy Ward’s card.  The layout, the stamping is to perfection and she took the time to add the coordinating Washi Tape candles. It looks like she added the washi tape, then used an exacto blade to trim off the bottom where it meets the cake.  The stamp set is called Build A Birthday in photopolymer. (I’m posting supply pics at bottom of post)  I love the big happy bday greeting, it is a host reward set. (email me how to get it)

This next one is by Kathy Dean, using the Sprinkles of Life stamp set and Tree builder punch for cupcakes. I like how she stamped on the dazzling diamonds glitter paper and punched out.  I wouldn’t have thought it would stamp well but it did!

The next one is stamped by Jamie Adcock and again using Sprinkles of life. I liked how she took a non-birthday folder like the Boho Chic and it works! Totally different color palette for birthdays also, with new In Colors, Dijon, watermelon, Taupe and mint.

Here are the main supplies they used in the cards above:

While I’m away, go stamp something!

I’ll be posting live from convention once a day here on my blog.

For several updates a day, go to my Stamping School Facebook page and LIKE it to see what’s happening there!

    Hi Linda, love that 1st birthday card. Coincidentally, I was just looking at another card with that same Happy Birthday sentiment and couldn’t find it in the current catalog. Noticed that you didn’t have a source for it either. Do you know the set that Happy Birthday stamp is from? Good luck on your genealogy hunt.

  2. Hi Carole! Yes it is a hostess set, look in the back of the annual catty
