Birthday Numbers (A STAMPtember Kick Off Online Party)

Cathy ZielskeCards, Tutorials29 Comments

Today we are kicking off a big online party to celebrate Simon Says Stamp’s STAMPtember® month of exclusive products, ideas and inspiration!

My card project for today features the brand new Birthday Numbers stamp set and coordinating dies and this 6 x 8 set is just so all purpose because: numbers. Whether you’re celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, dates—big numbers work for cards and scrapbook pages! I decided to bust out my new watercolors and create some rainbow effects.  My goal is to keep playing with the watercolors and to push myself into new mediums, ones that I may not be super comfortable using, but I’m going to have fun trying!

Here is a video that shows you how I created this card project, including a tip on how to make matching square envelopes.

Now for the fun STAMPtember Kick-off Party details…

I have a special code that will get you some cute crafty Shaker Stickers for free if you use the code in the image above. But here’s the cool thing: there are all sorts of different promotions today online and all of the card makers who are participating in this online party have different banners with different promotions! Think of it as a scavenger hunt for awesome freebies! To see links to all the people making cards for this party, visit the Simon Says Stamp blog!

    This is beautiful, Cathy! I think I may have to have this number set. Wouldn’t it be great to do this in several color sets with some ready to place numbers for whatever age you might need? I love everything that you make. Your projects are always so classy! Absolutely love your “Great Things” stamp set.

    Instead of the watercolor set, I could use my Zig watercolor markers for a similar effect, right? Trying to use what I already have!

    Your daughter will love the card you created for her birthday. I love the new number stamp and die set. Your water coloring was fantastic and your dimensional card a hit at my house. Thanks for the tip on two stamps for square cards. I never knew that.

    Great card! Love the layout and the colors you chose. Thanks for the tips for watercoloring that great new number set. Thanks, too, for the tip about making square envelopes. So clever and simple.

    ha! my/your trimmer arrived today. you can stop trying to hypnotise me into buying one. Think it was lurking at the back of storeroom behind something, cos it was a bit grubby, hence finding old stock of a discontinued thing. but it cleaned up fine, and it cuts great. from my brief go at it. no spoons just now.

    Planning ahead is great. totally. til you can’t remember where you put it. or forget you even had it and end up with two. not that I have ever done that.

    nice watercolouring.

    super cute card and I love that you can just cut down an envelope to make it square. Good advance warning on the extra cost if mailed. All in all a very informative coda.

    Love the water color look of the letters that folks are showing. Really enjoy seeing the different hombre looks you giving the numbers.
