Stamp Review Crew -- Happy Birthday Gorgeous

Stamp Review Crew blog banner

Hello!  Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop featuring the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

The Stamp Review Crew is an international group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who gather for a blog hop the first and third Mondays of the month to review a single stamp set.  The number of participants varies from hop to hop, but the ideas are plentiful as we take a stamp set through its paces.  By the time you've traveled through the hop, you are sure to find a number of innovative ways to use the featured stamp set.  So sit back, relax, and get ready to start pinning ideas to your Pinterest board!

To see the line up of artists for this week's hop, click here.  If you've already joined the hop and are traveling forward, you've arrived from Lou's blog where you were presented with an amazing project to inspire your creativity.  If you're traveling backwards through the hop, you've seen Charlet's project and are ready to CASE! (Copy And Share Everything)

I have three projects to share with you.  (I'll apologize up front for the photos--I'm transitioning to a different photo editing software and there's a bit of a learning curve to overcome...)

One of the first things that drew me to this stamp set was the fonts used for the greetings and sentiments.  I just love the fun curls and elongated letters -- they just evoke happy feelings.  The suite of products associated with this stamp set includes the Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Happy Birthday Thinlits die for the Big Shot.  So many possibilities!!

I love sparkly and shiny, so the Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper is just perfect when I need to make a statement with my projects.  For my first project, I used a sheet of the Berry Burst foil embossed paper.  The combination of the bright color with the Kraft background is so fun!


Supplies I used to make this card -- 

Stamps:  Happy Birthday Gorgeous; Inks:  Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink, Soft Sky, Memento Tuxedo Black; Stampin' Write Markers:  Subtles (Soft Sky); 2017-2019 In Color (Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist); Cardstock:  Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink, Soft Sky, Whisper White; Designer Series Paper:  Foil Frenzy Specialty; Embellishments:  Whisper White Classic Weave ribbon, Whisper White Baker's Twine; Adhesives:  Tear & Tape, Mini Glue Dots, Stampin' Dimensionals; Tools:  Stampin' Trimmer, Paper Snips, Gift Bag Punch Board, Balloon Bouquet punch, Everyday Label punch

My second project features a couple of the fun flower images included with the stamp set.

My final project features the Happy Birthday Thinlits die for the Big Shot as the focal point for the card.  I'm sorry to admit that most of the birthday cards I send arrive late.  I just hope that the recipients know that the love is always there in the forefront of my mind.  The shimmer you see in the diamond pattern on the card front comes from Shimmery White Embossing Paste.
