Celebrating birthdays

My son is away at school for his 19th birthday. I have to confess that his Valentine package was very late – I had a post-wedding failure.   But I sent this early so he would have it:  it’s spring break, and he is on a geology camping trip in New Mexico.   I’m pretty confident he won’t see this post for at least a week, if at all.  He’s really busy at school, and his mom’s blog isn’t at the top of his to-do list.

This card should have arrived well before he left.  Since I was sending it in a package I didn’t have to worry about fitting it into a USPS-approved envelope:

Stampin' Up! Maui Stamper You Rule King for a Day

  • You Rule stamp set
  • Summer Starfruit, Pool Party, Tangerine Tango and Whisper White card stock
  • Sycamore Street DSP (SAB)

  • Summer Starfruit Stampin’ Write marker
  • Tangerine Tango Embossing powder
  • Powder Pal and Heat tool
  • Stampin’ Spritzer
  • Designer Rosette Bigz XL die
  • Rhinestone Jewels
  • a mess o’ hot glue and the Silicone craft sheet

Maui Stamper You Rule King for a Day

I use bamboo skewers to hold my flags – much sturdier than toothpicks, although toothpicks would have been the right length.

Stampin' Up! Maui Stamper You Rule King for a DayI used a dime-sized blob of hot glue on the Silicone craft sheet to hold my rosette together.  It cools really quickly and peels off easily.  Then I just hot-glued that rosette into place, added the crown and the flags and my 3-D card was ready to rock and roll!

Sure do love that Sycamore Street DSP – and I have a nice little stash set aside.  You’re going to see more of this paper, and having your own little stash will come in pretty handy!  SAB ends on March 22:  what do you need?
