Happy Birthday Gorgeous -- It's Your Day!

Hi There!

Today's post provides the how-to's for creating one of the projects designed for the Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop featuring the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.  To see a line up of all the Stampin' Up! artists who participated in the hop, click here.  To begin the hop, click here.

These last few weeks have been pretty intense with the Winter weather in most areas of the US.  Here in East Central Florida, the weather has been pretty calm and Spring-like and we are enjoying the colorful flowers and budding trees -- and suffering the effects of all the blooming with the high pollen counts.  This card was designed for all my friends and family in other parts of the US who are buried under snow and ice and yearning for Spring.

This card begins with a card base of Crushed Curry cardstock.  The card front was randomly stamped with the large layered petal flower using Versamark ink.

A piece of Whisper White cardstock was randomly stamped with the solid image for the large layered petal flower using Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight, and Bermuda Bay inks.  The large layered petal flower image was stamped over the solid image using Melon Mambo ink for the Flirty Flamingo solid flower, Crushed Curry ink for the Daffodil Delight solid flower, and Island Indigo ink for the Bermuda Bay solid flower.  [Tip:  The Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set is a photopolymer stamp set.  For the best stamping results, place the Stampin' Pierce Mat under the cardstock while stamping.]

The solid image for the small layered petal flower was randomly stamped over the Whisper White cardstock using Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight, and Bermuda Bay inks.  The small layered petal flower image was stamped over the solid image using Melon Mambo ink for the Flirty Flamingo solid flower, Crushed Curry ink for the Daffodil Delight solid flower, and Island Indigo ink for the Bermuda Bay solid flower.

The small solid leaf image was stamped at the sides of the flowers using Lemon Lime Twist ink.  Tangerine Tango ink was used to stamp the curlique image in between the flowers.

The Whisper White cardstock was matted with a slightly larger piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock.  A length of Bermuda Bay Mini Chevron ribbon was wrapped around the two pieces of cardstock and knottted at the front center with the bottom edge of the ribbon 1" above the bottom edge of the Whisper White cardstock.  The focal point was adhered at the center of the card front.

The label outline image was stamped on a piece of Whisper White cardstock using Island Indigo ink.  The "Hip Hip Hooray" sentiment was stamped centered inside the label image using Bermuda Bay ink.  The label image was punched with the Classic Label punch.  A piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock was punched with the Classic Label punch and adhered behind the Whisper White stamped punched image to create a drop shadow below and to the right of the Whisper White stamped punched image.  The combined label was trimmed vertically just a smidge to the left of the "H" in "Hip" and the modified label adhered to the focal point with the left side of the label flush with the left edge of the Whisper White cardstock and the top of the label 1/2" from the top edge of the Whisper White cardstock of the focal point.

The "It's Your Day" greeting was stamped on a strip of Whisper White cardstock using Melon Mambo ink.  The Whisper White strip was matted with a slightly larger piece of Flirty Flamingo cardstock.  The greeting was adhered at the center of the focal point using Stampin' Dimensionals.

HappyBirthdayGorgeous_ItsYourDay_Liner

The inside sentiment area of the card was lined with a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  The "Make A Wish" image was stamped at the upper center of the liner using Melon Mambo ink.

The upper third of the liner was randomly stamped with the solid image for the large layered petal flower using Daffodil Delight, and Bermuda Bay inks.  The large layered petal flower image was stamped over the solid image using Crushed Curry ink for the Daffodil Delight solid flower and Island Indigo ink for the Bermuda Bay solid flower.

The solid image for the small layered petal flower was randomly stamped among the Daffodil Delight/Crushed Curry and Bermuda Bay/Island Indigo flowers using Flirty Flamingo ink.  The small layered petal flower image was stamped over the solid image using Melon Mambo ink.

The small solid leaf image was stamped at the sides of the flowers using Lemon Lime Twist ink.  Tangerine Tango ink was used to stamp the curlique image in between the flowers.

HappyBirthdayGorgeous_ItsYourDay_Envelope

The "It's Your Day!" greeting was stamped at the center of the Medium Whisper White Envelope flap using Melon Mambo ink.  

The envelope flap was randomly stamped with the solid image for the large layered petal flower using Daffodil Delight, and Bermuda Bay inks.  The large layered petal flower image was stamped over the solid image using Crushed Curry ink for the Daffodil Delight solid flower and Island Indigo ink for the Bermuda Bay solid flower.  [Tip:  Place a scrap of paper between the envelope flap and body of the envelope to ensure the stamping is contained only to the envelope flap.]

The solid image for the small layered petal flower was randomly stamped among the Daffodil Delight/Crushed Curry and Bermuda Bay/Island Indigo flowers using Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight, and Bermuda Bay inks.  The small layered petal flower image was stamped over the solid image using Melon Mambo ink for the Flirty Flamingo flower, Crushed Curry ink for the Daffodil Delight flower, and Island Indigo ink for the Bermuda Bay flower.

The small solid leaf image was stamped at the sides of the flowers using Lemon Lime Twist ink.  Tangerine Tango ink was used to stamp the curlique image in between the flowers.

If you are living in one of the many areas of the US that are still struggling through Winter, you have my sympathy.  Here's hoping that Spring will come to your area very soon!
