Stampin' Up Birthday Bright Project Kit - Alternate Cards with Leftover Die Cuts II - Bright Birthday, Birthday Blast, Star Blast, Wish Big, Fiesta Time

We are supposed to get 3 to 5" of snow today; but, I think we have surpassed that already.  And then, it is supposed to turn to rain some time this afternoon with a high of 42 which I'm sure will make it a major mess out on the roads.  I hope it gets cleared up for my appointments tomorrow.

My share for today is 4 cards that I designed using 4 of the leftover Silver Foil/Watermelon Wonder Cake Die Cuts leftover from Stampin' Up's Birthday Bright Project Kit.  The Stampin' Up products that I used to make my cards are Bright Birthday & Birthday Blast Stamp Sets, Star Blast Edgelits & Fiesta Time & Wish Big Framelits Dies and (Candle Punch-Optional-Retired).

Let's take a look:

Aren't these fun looking Birthday cards.  I LOVE the Star Blast Die Cut coming out of the top of the Cake.

My Card Bases are So Saffron, Watermelon Wonder, Night of Navy and Whisper White cut at 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" and scored and folded at 4-1/4".

I trimmed out my Star Blast Front Panels to measure 4" x 11" and adhered them to my Card Bases with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.  This way, I could die cut the Star Blast Edgelit Die from SU's new 2017 Occasions Catalog from both ends of my Cardstock and then trim off a tiny section in the middle to get 2 Die Cut Front Panels out of the 4" x 11" Cardstock.

I adhered the alternating colors for the center stars in the Star Blast Die Cuts in each card.

Using SU's Wish Big Framelits and Fiesta Time Framelits Dies from the Annual Catalog, I die cut the Frosting and Banner Dies from alternating colors for each Cake on each card and adhered them to the leftover Cake Die Cuts from SU's Bright Birthday Project Kit.

Using SU's new Star Blast Edgelits Dies, I die cut the Curly Cue Die in alternating colors, adhered them to the Cake Die Cuts with my Fine Tip Glue Bottle and then adhered the Cakes to my Star Blast Front Panel with Stampin' Dimensionals.

For the inside of my cards:  I stamped my Sentiment from SU's Birthday Bright Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink on to the alternating colors of Cardstock for each card.

Using SU's Star Blast Edgelits Dies, I die cut the Frame Die in alternating colors for each card. 

I adhered the Sentiments and Frames to the inside of my card using Mono Multi Purpose Glue.

I adhered some leftover Stars from the Star Blast Die Cuts to the edge of the Sentiment.

Here's a picture of the second card....I adhered some of the leftover Enamel Shapes from the Bright Birthday Project Kit to the Cake and the Stars.

For this card, I also adhered the Negative Die Cuts from the Curly Cue Die into the loops of the Curly Cue's.

I used a Retired small SU Candle Punch to punch out my candles from Whisper White Cardstock. 

I used my So Saffron Stampin' Write Marker to color in the Flames on the Candles.

I also brushed some Wink of Stella onto the Flames of the Candles.

I adhered some of SU's Silver Enamel Shapes onto the Stars in the Star Blast Die Cut on this card.


And, for my fourth card, I really mixed it up. 

I used 3 layers of Cardstock with the Star Blast Die Cut and off set them on my Card.  I only adhered down the Center Top Star and left the others free on adhesive so they would bend forward some.

I didn't add punched out candles to the candle on the Cake-Optional.  I think they look pretty without.

I stamped my Sentiment and Swirl from SU's Birthday Blast Stamp Set in Night of Navy.

Add, I added extra Stars and Curly Cue's to my Star Blast Card Front Panels.

I also adhered 3 different colors of Frosting on the Cake.

And, I even added the Curly Cue's to my Sentiment on the inside of my Card.

Gosh, that was fun!!!

Come back tomorrow and I'll show you the cards that I made with the Leftover Candle Die Cuts from SU's Birthday Bright Project Kit.  And then, I'll have more this week with the Leftover Whisper White Cake Die Cuts.

I recently discovered that people are using my cards and/or projects, duplicating them and entering them into challenges, using them for their own card classes and (using them on their blogs as their own creations) - Please give credit where credit is due.  My cards and projects are my own creations and are not to be used in challenges, blog hops, card classes or sold at craft shows; etc., for profit.  I don't mind if you duplicate my creativity to pass on to family members or friends as gifts or Occasions cards; but,  PLEASE be considerate of others creativity!  Thank you!
