Hi Stampers, today I have created a fun birthday card using the Foxy Friends bundle to create a Birthday Bear! I also used the Birthday Banners stamp set and a the new Balloon Adventures stamp set available January 4th. Stampin’ Up! has so many fun birthday stamps it is difficult to just use one set!
I started by stamping the two smallest balloons using the Birthday Banners stamp set. I used the Balloon Bouquet Punch to cut them out. Next, I stamped the largest balloon using the new Balloon Adventures stamp set available on January 4th, and punched it too.
For the Birthday Bear, I punched out some Soft Suede using the Fox Builder Punch and rounded off the ears using my paper snips. Then, the Foxy Friends paws were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Crumb Cake. I used the small circle die from the Gift Card Envelope & Thinlets Dies to cut the paws out. Next, I cut out an oval for the nose/mouth area and attached it to the head, then used the face features stamp from Foxy Friends to stamp the eyes and nose. Don’t you just love the birthday hat? It is from the Party Animal Embellishments pack available on January 4th. It contains Pacific Point birthday hats and Tangerine Tango Balloons.
The inside features a sentiment from Balloon Adventures and is stamped in Tangerine Tango ink.
To complete the Birthday Bear card, I decided to stamp one of the other fun balloons from Balloon Adventures on the envelope front.
Card stock cuts and products used will be at the end of the post. (Minus any items available on January 4th)
