Stampin' Up! Carousel Birthday stamp set

  • Carousel Birthday stamp set card
  • Good-bye free Sale-A-Bration gifts -- final day to order
  • April 2 class to make Bunny Buddies and Cards Class 

Carousel stamp set

Here's another stamp set from the Occasions catalog, called Carousel Birthday, that I'm finally getting to play with.   The matching DSP is from a 6 X 6" paper stack called Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Paper Stack.   

I'm so happy with the way this stunning card turned out.  I cut a sheet of the 6 X 6 DSP paper stack to 3 X 6 and then trimmed it to 3 x 5-1/4" I stamped the carousel horse onto a Whisper White circle in Night of Navy.  The circle is backed with one of the new Lace Doilies, also in the  Occasions catalog.      

I stamped another carousel image and fussy cut it to use it as a cover over the final stamped image.  I then used a dauber to create a Pool Party shadow /background around the carousel horse.  I used color pencils to color the carousel horse and pole.  I added the 3/8" Pool Party ribbon before affixing the top layers to the thick Whisper White base card.    

I used the 'thinking of you' sentiment from the Window Shopping set, and highlighted the card with Pool Party enamels from the Subtles enamels pack.  The colors on this card make my eyes happy.

Make the March Bunny Buddies Paper Pumpkin kit in our April 2 class

Our live class on April 2 gives you a second chance to make the super-cute Bunny Buddies kit, if you missed ordering it.  In addition of the Paper Pumpkin Bunny Buddies refill kits, we'll also make 4 full-sized cards and a useful little gift box.  

Come for a fun afternoon of crafting to make these cute Bunny BUddies and Cards

Fill your 9 bunny bags with large chocolate eggs and make 9 matching gift cards.  In addition, we'll make a variety of cards and a small gift box, pictured below.  This will be a fun class for all levels of stampers to learn about Paper Pumpkin monthly crafting kits, making cards with Designer Papers, embossing folders, dies cuts, two-step stamping, and water coloring Designer Papers.

These are the additional cards we'll make during our Bunn Buddies & Cards class - April 2
