It’s time for the InKing Royalty Blog Hop! This month’s theme is “They Say It’s Your Birthday.” Do you remember the song by The Beatles? Click here to hear it! I’ve made a fun birthday card for today’s hop, but it could be used for any occasion calling for a party, even for the invitation. I took the colors from the Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper that I used, and the stamped images are from a stamp set I’ve used a lot lately, Happy Birthday Gorgeous. 


Here’s what I made:

Stampin' Up! Happy Birthay Gorgeous - Party Time birthday card birthday memories DSP made by Candy Ford of Stamp Candy


Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Whisper White Thick card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″
  • Pumpkin Pie CS cut to 4-1/4″ x 3-1/4″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 4″ x 3″

Stamped with the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set:

  • sentiment in Pacific Point ink onto the center of the Whisper White CS layer
  • streamers around the sentiment in Daffodil Delight, Lemon Lime Twist, Pumpkin Pie, and Soft Sky inks

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • DSP layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • Pumpkin Pie CS layer glued at an angle onto the DSP layer
  • stamped layer glued at an angle onto the Pumpkin Pie CS layer
