Stampin’ Up! Big On You Birthday & A Blog Candy Winner!

I used the Stampin’ Up! stamp sets called Big on You and Four You to create my card to share today.

Big on You - Stamp With Amy K

My card design was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #129.

Screen Shot 2015-03-28 at 2.09.38 PM

I started by adhering a panel of Birthday Bash Specialty DSP to a panel from the Gold Foil Sheets with SNAIL, then to a Night of Navy card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Big on You 2 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the sentiment from the Big on You photopolymer stamp set in VersaMark ink on a panel of Mossy Meadow card stock and I heat embossed it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I punched two corners with the Project Life Corner Punch and adhered the stamped panel to a panel from the Gold Foil Sheets (also punched with the Project Life Corner Punch), then to the card front with SNAIL.

Big on You 3 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the sentiment from the Four You stamp set in Night of Navy ink on a strip of Whisper White card stock, adhered it to a strip of Night of Navy card stock with SNAIL and punched the end with the Banner Punch.

Big on You 1 - Stamp With Amy K

I adhered the sentiment strip to the card front with SNAIL, then tied a bow with Linen Thread through a Mossy Meadow Button from the In Color Accessory Pack (Sale-A-Bration item).  I adhered the button to the card front with a Glue Dot to finish it.

Birthday Bash DSP - Stamp With Amy K

I adhered a strip of the leftover Birthday Bash DSP to a strip from the Gold Foil Sheets and to a Whisper White panel inside the card.  I added a panel from the Gold Foil Sheets under the Whisper White panel to finish the inside of the card.

  1. Happy, happy Birthday to you!! Your card is so cool, the way that you used the gold behind the Mossy Meadow panel because the gold balloons of the dsp really highlight the shiny gold 🙂 I really like these layered flag elements you’ve been making. They give the sentiment a nice pop!

  2. That big sentiment is perfect for this sketch! The gold embossing adds a luxurious touch as well. Fabulous card! Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.

  3. SO fun! Love the bold sentiment surrounded by the tiny balloons on the paper. Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
