I pulled out some of my older stamps to make some Fun and Easy Birthday Cards. Sometimes it’s fun to look through the things you haven’t used in a long time and remember why you bought them in the first place. They can spark inspiration where you least expect it! 🙂

The card below was made using Birthday Wishes Peeps from Unity Stamps – and it’s still available! This is a similar embossing folder to the one I used. I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white card stock and colored it with Copic markers. I trimmed the image and layered it to blue card stock. I embossed a panel of green card stock, then layered it to a white card. I added the stamped image to the card with foam tape.
The next card was made using some older stamps and dies from Hero Arts. But I found this great Birthday Balloon stamp set and matching Birthday Balloon die that would work great! I stamped the balloons with coral and green ink on white card stock and then die cut them with the balloon die. I embossed a panel with a Falling Snow embossing folder similar to this one, layered it to a piece of coral card stock, and attached the panel to a white card. I stamped the sentiment with coral ink on white card stock (here’s a similar stamp) and punched it with an oval punch. I attached the sentiment and 2 balloons to the card, then I attached the 3rd balloon with foam tape. I drew 3 strings with a black pen to finish the card.
This card is made with another older stamp from Hero Arts. Any fun balloon stamp will work – there are some cute ones in this set. I stamped the balloon with green ink on white card stock, trimmed it, and layered it to striped paper. I embossed a panel of blue card stock with a large circle embossing folder (here’s a similar one). I tied the panel with green and white twine and attached it to a white card. Then I attached the stamped image with foam tape.
These were fun to make! So look through your stamps and supplies. Pull out the ones you haven’t used in forever and let your imagination go – you might surprise yourself with how much you’ve missed using them. 🙂
