Today I’m sharing these simple cards which have helped bump up my birthday card stash. They took just ten minutes to make each and you could make them in any colour.
I chose to use Blueberrry Bushell and Lovely Lipstick for these cards but you could use any colour you like.
To add a little interest I’ve added a strip of the 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon to each card. The greeting comes from the Seaside Notions stamp set and is popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals.
For today’s project I’ve pulled out the Leave A Little Sparkle stamp set to make a birthday card for a special little girl who loves unicorns and all things sparkly. For the background of this card I stamped the small star trio stamp in the new Silvery Shimmer Delicata Ink which gives the whole card a subtle shimmer which the photograpgh really doesn’t do justice to.
I coloured the main focal image with Stampin’ Blends in Lovely Lipstick, Bermuda Bay and Rich Razzleberry and added some Wink of Stella to the unicorn horn for a bit more sparkle.
A little silver foil adds a final bit of sparkle to this gorgeous girly card. I can see variations of this card made throughout the coming school year for all those upcoming little girl birthdays.
Who doesn’t love a cute little dinosaur? I love them and have had loads of fun with the Dino Days stamp set creating a rainbow of diffrent coloured dinosaurs. My favourite was a Flirty Flamingo one, but I’m saving that one for another day.
For today’s card I’ve gone for slightly more convensional coloured dinosaurs in Mango Melody and Pretty Peacock…no boring dinos here!
The card was finished off with a strip of paper from the Dinoroar DSP, don’t just think dinosaurs when you see this paper, its bright, fun and super versatile and perfect for any kind of card.
Today I’m sharing another childrens birthday card, this time made with the Over the Moon stamp set. The background was a watercolour wash of Mint Macaron on the old watwercolour paper, having now used our new Fluid 100 watercolour paper I much prefer this as its blends so much smoother.
I stamped the cow in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Stampin’ Blends before fussy cutting her out. Here’s a little close up of her:
I attached some linen thread around the base of the punched out balloon with Tear N Tape around the back. I then attached the thread to the cow using some more tape rolled into a ball, you could also use a glue dot here but I’m out of them at the moment.
To finish the card stamp Happy Birthday from Perennial Birthday across the bottom of the card in Rich Razzleberry.
Finished result a cute birthday card which I’m sure anyone would love.
Card Base: Half A4 sheet of cardstock measuring 14.9 x 21cm, scored at 10.5cm
Rich Razzleberry Matt: 14.4cm x 10cm
Watercolour Paper: 13.9cm x 9.5cm
This card was made from the Leave A Little Sparkle stamp set for one of my friends little girls who is unicorn mad, I think she will like it as the whole party was unicorn themed and had a very similar colour scheme.
First I created the background using the new Fluid 100 watercolour paper, which I think makes blending much easier than our previous watercolour paper. I spritzed the whole of my watercolour paper with water then used a mix of Rich Razzleberry, Bermuda Bay and Mint Macaron to make a striped ombre effect background. I then used my heat tool to completely dry the background.
I added a couple of swirls to the background in Versamark which have shown up in the photo above and also added a greeting from Magical Mermaid in Rich Razzleberry.
I then stamped the unicorn in Tuxedo Black Memento onto Shimmery White cardstock, which sadly doesn’t show up. I then coloured the mane, tail and hooves with a mix of dark Stampin’ Blends in Mint Macaron, Bermuda Bay and Rich Razzleberry. A touch of Wink of Stella was added to the unicorn horn to add extra sparkle.
To embellish the card I used the now retired Twinkle, Twinkle Adhesive stars but you could also use the Iridescent Sequins or the Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins for a similar effect.
I love this card and can’t wait to play around creating different coloured versions, I’m thinking Lovely Lipstick, Pumpkin Pie and Mango Melody would work well for a firey unicorn cards.

Aww I’m so sad that the Sweetest Thing stamp set and matching dies are leaving us, I’ve had so much fun playing with these and all the co-ordinating products in the How Sweet It Is Suite.
For this card I added the Rectangle Stitched Dies to create a background and a frame and then added a few die-cut jars and a simple greeting in the corner.
Here are a couple more of my favourite projects with this bundle:
Yes its another card with a balloon, I seem to have a bit of an obsession lately with them. Think I’m just sad they’re all retiring but it won’t be long before I have new favourites.
The Bella & Friends stamp set is probably one of the cutest in the current catalogue, along with Pretty Kitty which is also retiring. Simply stamp your favourite cute little dog, colour with Stampin’ Blends and you’ve got a lovely card in minutes.
For the background of this card I used the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder in Mint Macaron which works great with Rich Razzleberry, one of my all time favourite colour combinations.
A simple greeting stamped on a banner from Birthday Banners and you have a finished card.
Hope you’ve all has a lovely Easter weekend and enjoy this gorgoeus Bank Holiday sun.
