Stampin' For All Design Team Challenge: Bringing Back Birthdays

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate it and hope you like the project I have made for you. Today is my turn to set the challenge on Stampin' For All the Facebook group I am a Design Team member for. The theme is Bringing Birthdays Back. I joined in last weeks challenge set by Amanda of the baby wipe technique and produced loads of card mats and backgrounds so made a birthday card with one of those. I then made it again but stepped it up to make it a bit more 'wow'!


Nigezza Creates, Stampin' Up! Baby Wipe Card #2 Bloom By Bloom Birthday Card: Stampin' For All DT Challenge


Measurements and Materials 


  • Card base is my usual C6 size which is half a sheet of standard card stock cut in half and scored in half
  • I used Berry Burst for this card base
  • UK measurements 8 1/4" x 5 7/8"
  • Folded size 4 1/8" x 5 7/8"
  • Mat 1: Tranquil Tide 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"
  • Mat 2: Whisper White stamped topper 5 3/8" x 3 5/8"
  • If you are using 8 1/2" x 11" card stock then adjust the measurements 
  • I used the Bloom By Bloom stamp set to stamp the images
  • I was inspired by Heather from Stamp with Nellie who is also a member of the group
  • The flower hearts were stamped using the baby wipe stamp pad I created using Fresh Fig, Berry Burst and Powder Pink re-inkers
  • I love how they have a tie dyed effect, reminds me of the clothes I wore in the late 1980s/early 1990s and to be honest still do no occasionally! 
  • The stems were stamped in Tranquil tide
  • In the original card I did not double mat the card and used the Rich Razzle Berry Velvet ribbon
  • I used the metallic edged Berry Burst ribbon for this stepped up version and added rhinestones to the centre os the card
  • The sentiment was stamped using the Beautiful Bouquet stamps and cut out using the small stitched oval die
  • I then cut a scalloped oval layer in Tranquil Tide and an oval in Berry burst to mat this 
  • Viola! One pretty birthday card ... well 2 actually lol!

Video Tutorial

Tomorrow I will have a video tutorial showing how I made the card so be sure to pop back to see that. If you want to see how I did the baby wipe technique you can check this out here.
