Happiest of Birthdays for the Pals Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month, the theme is Birthday Bash. We really hope that you enjoy and will be inspired by them! As you hop from blog to blog, we would appreciate your comments because we enjoy hearing from you. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.Stampin' Up! Every Chapter Slimline Birthday Card idea with Pattern party Designer Series paper - jeanie Stark StampinUp
You may be wondering why I’m showcasing the Every Chapter Stamp Set for a Birthday Bash. Well, not only do I happen to love this stamp set, it is perfect for a friend’s birthday card, especially when gifting a book (or in today’s case, an awesome Blooming Books shaped puzzle).

I love to coordinate my cards and gifts! When I saw the Every Chapter stamp set in the Mini Catalog, I knew it was perfect for my book club friends and others who enjoy reading books as much as I do. I sent my friend her card and gift a “little-bit-late”. I used a combination of Positive Thoughts and the Happiest of Birthdays stamp sets on the inside of my card.

Today’s card is a slimline card.  It costs the same to mail this size card and Stampin’ Up! has added slimline envelopes to their collection. Yea!!!!

These Slimline Envelopes are designed to be the perfect fit for your tall, slender greeting cards. They come in a pack of 15, 5 each of 3 colors: Smoky Slate, Soft Succulent, white.

I chose the colors for today’s card from the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper. Stampin' Up! Pattern arty Designer Series Paper - get a free sample with a qualifying order at juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
Polka dots, flowers, stripes, and more. Whatever type of pattern you need, you’ll find it in the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper. You can use these pattern staples in any season, for any occasion. This is available with your Stampin’ Rewards when you host or purchase a qualifying order.  *During Sale-A-Bration (now through February 28th) you can earn even more FREE gifts with your order!

The floral pattern was a clear choice for today’s card to go with the “blooming books” puzzle. I colored the books with Stampin’ Blends to coordinate with colors in the patterned paper.

Here’s the details:

  • Card Base (Flirty Flamingo): 8 1/2 x 7 1/2 scored at 3 3/4 (for a 3 3/4 x 8 1/2 card)
  • Basic White: Cut 2 @ 3 1/2 x 4 1/2 to stamp books, 3 1/2 x 8 1/4 (inside)
  • Designer Series Paper: cut 4 @ 3 1/2 x 1 3/4
  • Flirty Flamingo Cardstock: cut 4 @ 1/4 x 3 1/2

I decided to step up this card by stamping the book image twice and fussy cut. I adhered the bottom 3 books with Stampin’ Dimensionals to give it some depth. I also added a piece of ribbon for the bookmark and some Basic Rhinestone Jewels on the glasses.

I stamped the image in Versamark and heat embossed with Black Embossing powder.  It smeared a little bit but I think it gives it a “worn” book effect like a well loved novel. (*You should stamp in Memento Ink when coloring with Stampin’ Blends.)

Every Chapter for a Friend

I so appreciate the friends in my life! When I saw the Every Chapter stamp set I knew I had to have it! It’s perfect for my book club friends and others who just love to read like I do!
Stampin'_Up!_Every_Chapter_card_for_a_friend-Jeanie Stark_StampinUp
This card is quick & easy…just stamp and color! I love to color with my Stampin’ Blends! I find it so relaxing!

Here’s the simple card details:

  • Card Base (Poppy Parade): 5-1/2 x 8-1/2, scored at 4-1/4
  • Basic White: 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, cut 2
  • Basic Black:3 3/4 x 5, cut 2

Stamp the image using Black Memento Ink and color with Stampin’ Blends (or watercolor pencils). Adhere to Basic Black cardstock. Use Foam Adhesive Sheets (or Stampin’ Dimensionals) to adhere to card base. Add Rhinestone Jewels to the eyeglasses for a little bling. I repeated the black and white layers on the inside and stamped the perfect sentiment from Positive Thoughts.

I love to coordinate the envelopes…it’s like a sneak peek at what’s inside. I stamped just the teacup and glasses on the front of the envelope.
Stampin'_Up!_Every_Chapter_card_for_a_friend-Jeanie Stark_StampinUp
This card would be perfect to give with a book (and handmade bookmark) for a friend’s birthday! I made this card as a thank you for a friend who gave me some books to read.

I’m always looking for the next good book to read. Have you read any good books lately? Leave a comment below and let’s start a list of good books to read! Here’s a few of my recent favorites…
