Happy birthday Sweetest thing


I know I’ve used this set a lot, but its just the best bundle to create birthday cards with. Who doesn’t love sweets?
Sadly, this set is retiring in just a couple of weeks.
You’ll be able to purchase this set through my Stampin up store until midnight 3rd June, but there is a chance it may sell out before then so I’d advise you not to wait.

My card base is 5″ x 7″, i tend to make a lot in this size and also 5″ x 5″ and 6″ x 6″ make a good size too. All supplies used are available from my Stampin Up website HERE

Card Supplies

  • Sweetest thing Bundle (stamp set and cutting die set)
  • Melon Mambo & bermuda bay ink pad
  • Aqua painter (or watercolour paintbrush)
  • Colouring medium (i have used matching Stampin Blends)
  • 15″ length of ribbon (the ribbon I’ve used was from sale-a-bration and no longer available but we have plenty more in the current catalogue)
  • Black memento ink pad
  • Watercolour card stock cut to 4 3/4″ x 6 3/4″
  • 3d foam pads
  • whisper white card stock

Card details

  • Take your Aqua painter and brush plain water onto the watercolour card where you want the ink to go.
    * Pre coating the watercolour card stock with water makes the ink smoother when applied.
  • Stamp the two sweet jars using black memento ink onto whisper white card stock, Chose your sweets and stamp those inside the jars.
  • Colour the sweets with your chosen colouring medium or as i have done, select coordinating stampin up blenders.
  • Wrap your ribbon around the lower end of your watercolour cardstock. Adhere with glue on the back, cut off excess ribbon and tie a bow. Adhere the bow with a glue dot.
  • Place 3d foam pads onto the back of the sweet jars, position & adhere onto the watercolour card front.
  • Adhere your bow
  • Using Bermuda bay ink, stamp the ‘Happy birthday’ sentiment from the Sweetest thing stamp set onto the left hand side of the sweet jars just underneath the ribbon.
  • Apply 3d foam pads to the back of the watercolour card front, adhere to the card base leaving an even space around the card.
