Happy Birthday Blog Hop - Glitter Birthday Wishes

I hope you are enjoying our Happy Birthday Blog Hop. I’m hopping with fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from all over the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and Quebec, Canada.

Today’s hop features Stampin' Up! products used to celebrate Happy Birthdays. With have 3 current publications  so we have lots of product options to share with you!

Birthdays are for shiny happy wishes!

I knew I wanted to use one of the prints from the Picture Perfect Party 6"x6" Designer Series Paper.
I had the hardest time choosing one!  I gave up and left them all spread out all over the table along with some Happy Birthdays cut from multiple colors of cardstock using the Happy Birthday thinlit.

Which one of these designs would  YOU choose?
Ahhh!  So many choices & beautiful color combinations!  I LOVE this paper!

When I came back to my table to try again, the Berry Burst words were laying near this dotted print.  I put aside all the other pretty prints and went with it!  I knew I wanted to add some sparkle to the card so the rest came together easily. 

Below is a close up of all the sparkle! It isn't glimmer paper.
To make the shimmery Happy Birthday, use the Adhesive Paper to cut out the words!  Be sure that the adhesive side will be on the top.  Peel off the backing paper and cover it with Dazzling Diamonds glitter.  Rub your finger over it to burnish the glitter into the adhesive paper.  Shake off the excess and you're done!  VERY LITTLE of the glitter comes off the paper. 
Now you can make "glimmer paper" with any color using super fine glitter!

Happy Cats

This card is for my daughter and her husband.  They have four cats that all have unique personalities and are all wonderful furbabies.  I made this card for them "just because".  Their love for each other & their cats is obvious to anyone who is around them.  

I cased this card from Su Mohr. The only noticeable difference is that I turned the cats so that their tails would link. I didn't have the stamp set to print the sentiment so I used my computer and the RGB code for Rich Razzleberry to print it on Whisper White cardstock and punched it out.

All of the papers I used are retired except the Rich Razzleberry and Whisper White card stocks. The current colors just didn't seem to work with the gingham cats and I really wanted to use the gingham papers from the retired Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper.  Hopefully you have a bit of a paper stash too.   If you don't have the exact papers, this card is easy to recreate with other papers.

To make the little balls of yarn, I put a Stampin' Dimensional on the cardstock and wrapped the metallic bakers twine around on top of it. Using two pieces of the metallic bakers twine, I tied a bow around the tails.
