Birthday candle hand-stamped card

It's your birthday!!  Celebrate other's birthdays with a fun, quick, easy, unique hand-stamped card.  Join Me in spreading joy to others with hand-crafted cards at our fun card making classes!  This card was originally created for the recent Kids Camp at Borchard and I modified it to use at the Inspire, Create and Share Stampin' Up! Convention as a swap!  I hope you enjoy this card and make some of your own (leave me a comment if you do!!).

A simple card can still be fun!  Simply framing this fun Big News rubber stamped birthday wish with joyous paper you don't have to do a ton to make a statement.  (It's also a way to use scraps of paper and to get the most out of your paper as this is only a 1/2"!)

With the new Cherry On Top Designer Series Paper stack I have a great variety of festive and celebration type images in one pad of pretty double sided paper!  I love how they perfectly coordinate with our inks and papers.
OK so you can't mail a lit candle - lol.  You can create a candle that will never go out, though!  

Using a 2" x 1" piece of the Cherry On Top stack, roll the edges of the 2" side with your Bone Folder (like you'd do on a ribbon on a gift package).  

Once you have broken down the fibers to do as you wish adhere a glue dot to one corner and apply your folded Gold 1/8" ribbon (it's so shiny!!) to create a loop (that will become your 'flame'). 

Roll the paper with the ribbon tucking into the inside to create a small tube.  

Apply three Glue Dots along the edge of the paper and adhere to create the candle!  Super easy and yes even my kids can do it, it's fun too!

Celebrate life and moments with others.  I really had a blast creating this card with the kids at our camp and with my team and friends, who helped me prep for my swaps. Cards are rarely even mailed this day and age - so take time to create and send a pretty hand-stamped card.  Join Me in creating fun, festive and cool cards that YOU can use to bless others in our card making classes.  I can not wait for the upcoming Convention (this week!!) where I will learn about the newest products, create new things, bring home the upcoming Holiday Catalog and spend time with My Gettin' Crafty Stampin' Team (and 4,000 other crafters).  I hope that you find a little joy in this card and create one of your own.  Happy Stamping!

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
