What's New at SU Blog Hop with the Coordination Products Birthday Dies

I'm so pleased that you are joining us for our hop. We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world who are Hoppin’ With Exciting Ideas to share with you. Our theme this month is the Coordination Products that match products in the Sale-A-Bration Brochure or the Jan/Jun Mini Catalogue. I hope you'll find some exciting ideas to help you!

The Coordination Product that I'm using for my projects today is the Birthday Dies.They coordinate with the Happy Birthday To You stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure, which I also used to demonstrate. I also used some Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper in the background. Here's a closer look:

  • For the card on the right, the birthday cake image was stamped twice in Versamark on Whisper White and embossed in Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder. An Aqua Painter was then used to paint the images with Petal Pink, Smoky Slate, Blackberry Bliss, Rich Razzleberry, Pear Pizzazz, and So Saffron inks.
  • The Birthday dies were used to die cut the whole birthday cake on one of the images and just the flowers on another of the images. In addition, the baby's breath die was used to die cut one sprig from vellum.
  • On the Smoky Slate card base, some Silver Foil, embossed with the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder, was adhered and some of the Peaceful Poppies DSP in Blackberry Bliss was added after embossing the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Happy Birthday to You stamp set, in silver at the top.
  • The extra flowers were added atop the matching ones but offset a little, as shown and popped up on dimensionals. The single blossom was trimmed off and used at the bottom of the cake dish with the baby's breath on the left of it using a couple of Mini Dimensionals.

  • The box has dimensions of 2.5" x 2.5" x 3.25". It was made with a retired Gift Box Punch Board. Four panels of the same Peaceful Poppies DSP measuring 2 3/8' x 3 1/8" were added to the vertical sides of the box and one measuring 2 3/8" square was added to the top. The opening mechanism is at the bottom.
  • The cake image is embossed with Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder once only this time it's coloured using So Saffron, Granny Apple Green, Mossy Meadow, Rich Razzleberry and Blackberry Bliss Stampin' Blends Combos. The flowers only are die cut and separated between the single and double flowers using the Birthday Dies. The milk jug from the Country Home stamp set was embossed in Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder and coloured using Smoky Slate Stampin' Emboss Combos. Then the flowers are arranged on the top using glue dots and dimensionals, with the addition of vellum leaves and baby's breath, also die cut using the same die set.
