Biggest Birthday Ever

Brusho and Beautiful Day stamp set

If you follow me on Facebook, you probably saw my Brusho swatches that I was playing around with. Well, I made them into cards.

I will share the first one with you today.

I used the big, bold, beautiful flower from the Beautiful Day stamp set as well as the Brilliant Red Brusho powder.


I used watercolor paper for my first attempt at Brusho. I wet the paper first with an aqua painter. I then sprinkled the brilliant red brusho and a little bit of gamboge (orange) brusho onto the wet paper. Then spritzed it with water again from about 4" away.


I wanted it to dry fast so that I could emboss over it, so I used my heat tool to dry it. I then used white emboss powder and embossed the flower over it and cut it out.


For the leaf, I did the same as above, only with the moss green brusho and cut it out and adhered the leaf onto the red flower. I backed it with the gorgeous Petal Passion designer paper, black shimmer ribbon and a few rhinestones in the middle of the flower.


I'm really enjoying the brusho and all the unique combinations that can be created with it. I have more to share so come back again soon!

Until the next time...

Biggest Birthday Ever- Retiring - Get it before its gone forever...

Stampin' Up's Biggest Birthday Ever stamp set and coordinating, Wish Big Framelit dies, are retiring. Such a fun set and since its a birthday set, it can be used over and over again for all ages and genders.

I'm going to give three reasons why everyone should have this stamp set on their shelves! Its a must have, so don't let it slip by, because it will never ever be back again.

Reason #1: Anyone know any Birthday Girls that would be over the moon with this Princess birthday card?


So sparkly and girly... by the way, the blushing bride glimmer paper and sequin trim as well as the Polka Dots emboss folder are retiring too. I've also used the Cupcake Cutouts Framelit dies for the words, "sweet" and "wish" below.


Reason #2: What birthday boy, girl, man or woman doesn't love ice cream on their birthday?


It looks good enough to eat, right?


Reason #3- Last but not least, the cake. Gotta have a yummy piece of cake at every birthday celebration. Its an absolute must!


Check out the shimmery icing. Made with a swipe of the Wink of Stella brush in clear.


I hope you enjoyed seeing all of the sweet and yummy birthday cards and can understand why this set is so amazing.

Stampin' Up! Biggest Birthday Ever, Inspiration

I'm in a Facebook Group for Stampin' Up! demonstrator leaders and a few weeks ago, a demonstrator friend, from Texas- Jenn Gulch posted a quick photo of a swap she was working on. Well, I loved it! I had to copy her card. It was made with the "Biggest Birthday Ever" stamp set- one of my favs!

Here's the awesome card that Jenn was making: see her blog here.

See what I mean? So super cute!


Oh my gosh, isn't it the most adorable card ever? To be honest, I wasn't crazy about the "Playful Palette" designer paper until I saw it on Jenn's card. I had to copy this card... so I grabbed my "Biggest Birthday Ever" stamp set and got down to business.

I had to change the greeting, as I didn't have the "My Hero" stamp set that the word Celebrate came from. So, I used the thinlits from the "Cupcake Cutouts" die set for the word, "wish."

The cardstock colors are crumb cake, peek a boo peach and sweet sugarplum. I used basic black archival ink to stamp the cone onto crumb cake cardstock and the peek a boo peach ink for the flowers on the background of the peek a boo peach card. I did also stamp the cherry in sweet sugarplum ink onto the sweet sugarplum cardstock. The cone, ice cream and cherry were all die cut with the coordinating "Wish Big" framelit set:


As I mentioned, I used the Painters Palette designer paper and also the new "Sparkle" emboss folder to make the sparkles on the crumb cake cardstock. To add shine to the cherry, I applied glue from the "fine tip glue pen" and let it dry for a minute or two. I love how it dries clear and shiny.


A few "Enamel Shapes" in peek a boo peach add some cute sprinkles to the cone.


Thanks for the inspiration, Jenn. You totally rocked it!

I hope you all enjoyed this fabulous card idea as much as I did.

Until the next time...

Stampin' Up! - Biggest Birthday Ever!

This set is super big and super cute! The "Biggest Birthday Ever" is so fun to stamp with. There are so many fun things to do with this set.

I used the piece of cake and the coordinating "Wish Big Framelits" to die cut the cake. The colors I used are pink pirouette and flirty flamingo. I also used my favorite new embossing folder, "Festive."


I added some shimmer with the Wink of Stella brush in clear.


I also added the greeting from the "Thoughtful Banners" stamp set and punched it out with the 1" circle punch.


The final touch is the flirty flamingo ruched ribbon that ties it all together. 
So, who wants a piece of cake? I think you'll love this big birthday set as much as I do!

Thanks for checking out my blog today.
