Love Today Planner Kit Cards - Stampin' Up! Corporate Blog

Love Today Planner Kit + Picture Perfect Birthday - Susan Wong

The New Year is the perfect time to get organised, right? I love my Love Today Planner Kit (144257) for this and have been busy populating its pages. But have you noticed how the kit comes with several pages of gold and coloured stickers? While they’re designed for making your planner look all things pretty, I decided they’d also be perfect for making some cute coordinating birthday cards!

I used one of my new favourites - the Picture Perfect Birthday (145519) stamp set - and took my colour cues from the stickers themselves. Then all you need to add is a bit of Whisper White Card Stock (106549) and a few of your favourite embellishments! My cards have Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine (124262), Pool Party Solid Baker’s Twine (144353), Gold Metallic Thread (138401) and the Iridescent Sequin Assortment (144212).

Hot tips:
- Pick apart the Baker’s Twine to get finer threads for nesting behind other elements.
- The stickers are made with fine paper. If not sticking them flat on card, pack the back with Dimensionals (104430) to keep them stable.
- Use the Picture Perfect Birthday candle stamp to create a washi tape look.

Hope this helps you get your birthday cards ready for 2018! I’m well on my way to achieving a greater #makeacardsendacard goal this year!

Small Stamp Love - Let's Get Hopping Blog Hop

Garden in Bloom + Picture Perfect Birthday - Stamping Susan Wong


Welcome to another round from the Let's Get Hopping crew! This month we're cranking out those teeny tiny stamps - careful, don't lose them! They can be way more useful than you think! I used Garden in Bloom and a brand new up-and-coming set called Picture Perfect Birthday to make small stamped backgrounds and embellishments for this set of cards. Do you recognise the card bases? That's right - I used up some of my Watercolor Christmas kit to turn into a set of birthday cards. Using limited supplies like this means that things come together quickly. Six cards - boom! I just turned the berries on the Christmas wreath into flowers. Such fun! Enjoy :)
