Stampin’ Up! Dainty Flowers & Alphabet A La Mode Dies Pop-up Vase 80th Birthday Card

Stampin’ Up! Dainty Flowers & Alphabet A La Mode Dies Pop-up Vase 80th Birthday Card

Something very special happened last Sunday. My gorgeous mum turned 80 and we went out for a special lunch to celebrate her birthday. Happy birthday Mum!!!

Mum is an amazing crafter and we love to craft together when we can, which unfortunately is not often enough as life and work keeps getting in the way! I love making special cards for Mum because she really appreciates them, so I decided to make a fancy fold card I’ve never made before – a pop-up vase card!

Here is the front of the card, featuring the stunning free SALE-a-bration Dainty Flowers DSP available from this Thursday.

The 80 has been die cut using a new set of alphabet and number dies called Alphabet A La Mode Dies and the “Happy Birthday” sentiment is from the Something Fancy stamp set, both available from this Thursday in the January mini catalogue.

A little trick to create the “th” for 80th – stamp the “happy birthday” sentiment again and cut the “th” from the word “birthday”.

Inside the card is where the magic happens. In the video below you can see how as the card opens the vase of flowers pops up!

Here is the card folded flat, ready to open…

Halfway open …

Laid flat with the vase fully popped up…

The flowers in the vase are all die cut using the Dainty Delight dies and the beautiful sentiment inside the card comes from the Something Fancy stamp set.

A special card needs a special envelope – this was made using another sheet of the SALE-a-bration Dainty Flowers DSP.

Did you notice the gorgeous Brushed Brass Butterflies that embellish the card front? They work perfectly with this DSP!

I’ll be back tomorrow, Wednesday January 4, with the AWH Colour Creations team to showcase Pacific Point and some more gorgeous SALE-a-bration products.

I hope you can join us then.

Stampin’ Up! Old Olive Dainty Flowers DSP Cards – Week 33 AWH Colour Creations

Stampin’ Up! Old Olive Dainty Flowers DSP Cards – Week 33 AWH Colour Creations

Welcome to week thirty three of our Art With Heart 2022-23 Colour Creations blog hop, our last hop for this year before we take a two week break over Christmas and New Year.

This is a weekly blog hop where we showcase the stunning range of Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order over 12 months and this week we are featuring Old Olive from the Regals family.

Who’s ready for a sneak peek of some items from the new Mini Catalogue and SALE-a-bration Catalogue?

I’m excited to share with you three cards made using a stunning new SALE-a-bration DSP that will be available in just a few week’s time.

The Dainty Flowers DSP has been hand water coloured and it will be free to redeem with any order of $90 or over from January 5, 2023.

Photos don’t really do justice to just how beautiful this DSP is in real life. The water coloured floral pattern I’ve used for all three cards actually looks like it has been embossed!!

For the sentiments on all three cards, I stamped them in Versamark onto Old Olive cardstock and then heat embossed the sentiments with white emboss powder.

The “Love you” sentiment is from another forthcoming SALE-a-bration item, the Thanks A Bunch stamp set.

The “Thank You” and “Sending Happy Thoughts” sentiments are from yet another forthcoming SALE-a-bration stamp set, Beautifully Happy.

All three cards have a Crumb Cake cardstock base and the only embellishment is some linen thread.

After all, with Designer Series Paper this beautiful, you really don’t need to do much at all!

Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Kate Morgan – I can’t wait to see what Kate has made this week!

The AWH Colour Creations blog hop is taking a two week Christmas break before we return in the new year on Wednesday January 4 with Pacific Point.

I hope you can join us then.
