Cupcakes & Carousels... It's Your Birthday

Oh, my gosh....  I am in LOVE with this new designer series paper... and to think.... most people at the Simple Beautiful Card Class earlier this month hadn't even noticed it in the catalog....

Well, they have now!!

Read on to learn more :)

We start our card with an Early Espresso card base, then we added 4 pieces of the Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Paper (DSP) Stack to our card.  The patterns and colors in this DSP stack are so soft and gorgeous - I love them all!!  Check out all of the patterns below.

And here are some of the other samples the Stampin' Up Designers created with this DSP and the coordinating Carousel Birthday Stamp Set...

Isn't this card just the cutest??  And...., I just learned that the Up & Away Thinlits, while bundled with the Lift Me Up Stamp Set, also coordinate with the Carousel Birthday Stamp Set!!  (see the framelits above that cut out the clouds and tiny cupcakes??).  We didn't use either of these stamp sets on this card, but I think this is good info to know!

Next, we stamped our balloon and "It's your birthday" in Early Espresso ink on Very Vanilla card stock.  Both of these stamps can be found in the Balloon Adventures Stamp Set.

We punched our balloon out with the Balloon Bouquet Punch and die-cut our oval with the Layering Oval Framelits.

Balloon Adventures Photopolymer Stamp Set  142823  $26.00

Finally, we added a Calypso Coral Thick Baker's Twine bow to our balloon and some Blushing Bride Sequin Trim behind our birthday sentiment.
