Pals Blog Hop– Birthday Bash

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Pals-Blog-Hop-275x275-1.png

Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month, the theme is Birthday Bash. We really hope that you enjoy & will be inspired by them! As you hop from blog to blog, we would appreciate your comments because we enjoy hearing from you. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

It was really hard to hone in on what stamp set I wanted to use for the Birthday Bash blog hop; so many great choices to pick from. I ended up selecting Brave Vikings because the minute I saw it in the mini Jan-June catalogue I fell in love with the stamp set. Scroll to the end to see more samples using this fun stamp set. The Simply Marbleous DSP (Desingers Series Paper) is FREE during Sale-a-bration with qualifiting $50 orders.

Step by Step Tutorial

– Begin with a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base of Basic White Thick card stock; scored at the 4 ¼ mark using a Paper Trimmer

– Use a Paper Trimmer to cut

Pale Papaya cardstock to 3 ⅞ x 5 ⅛

Basic Grey cardstock to 3 ¾ x 5

Simply Marbleous DSP 2 ¼ x 4 ¾ (FREE Sale-a-bration item with $50 purchase)

– Adhere the Pale Papaya cardstock to the Basic White card base using adhesive of choice (I used liquid Tombow glue)

– Run the piece of Basic Grey cardstock through a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder

– Adhere the dry embossed Basic Grey cardstock to the Pale Papaya layer

– Adhere the Simply Marbleous DSP to the Basic Grey layer; aligning it more towards the top

– Run a piece of New Horizons DSP using the largest Layering Circle die (3″) through a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine

– Stamp the viking from the Brave Vikings stamp set in Memento Ink onto a piece of Basic White cardstock. 

 – Colour the Viking using Stamping Blends.

– Run the coloured viking through a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the 2 ⅞ Layering Circle die

– Adhere the viking circle to the New Horizon DSP circle using adhesive of choice

– Adhered the layered circles to the card base using Stampin’ Dimentionals

– Stamp the sentiment from the Brave Vikings stamp set in Memento Ink onto a piece of ¾ x 2 ½ Basic White cardstock; then punch one side using the Banners Pick a Punch punch

– Adhere the punched sentiment onto the cardbase using Stampin’ Dimentionals

– For an added subtle bling I used a touch of Wink of Stell on the blade of his sword & a Brushed Metallic Dot to the shield

A few other samples using the Brave Vikings stamp set can be seen after the blog hop line up below; just keep scrolling down.

More inspiration awaits, so use the lineup below to visit the rest of the Design Team. The Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Then, please mark your calendars for our next blog hop on March 9th. Our theme will be Cute Critters where our Design Team creates a project with any kind of animals, birds, butterflies or insects.

Until then, have fun in your craft space!

My name is Jill Loveland & I have been an independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator in the Seattle area since 2010. I joined in 2010 during Sale-a-bration & have been hooked since. I love how the Stampin' Up! products coordinate from ink, paper to dies & embellishments. The quality of Stampin' Up! is the best in the paper crafting industry. I love to share my joy for card making & paper crafts with others. I hope you enjoy my blog & will visit often.
