Up Broadway Birthday set. However, keep in mind that you can use the
card designs and techniques that I’m sharing today to create cards with any stamps sets
you have on hand. Just get creative with it. By the end of this video, you will have three
different birthday card ideas and a simple technique you can start using right away. For the latest card making ideas, be sure

the stamp off technique and how many of you have no idea what I’m talking about. So leave me a comment below and let me know
if this is a new technique or something that you have tried before. Okay, so first let’s talk about the supplies
that you will need to create these cards. You will need some Bermuda Bay, Balmy Blue,
White and Crushed Curry cardstock for the card base and for the accent pieces. You will also need a stamp set. So for these cards I am using the Broadway
Birthday stamp set. Of course you will also need some ink so I
will be using for Bermuda Bay, Balmy Blue, Crushed Curry and some black memento ink. And the last thing you will need is a scissors. Okay, that’s it. I think we’re ready to get started. Now this first card features some simple stamping
to create a cluster of balloons as the focal point in the center of the card. We will be embellishing the card with some
birthday phrases that we will cut out by hand. Now don’t worry, it will be super simple,
I promise. We’re going to start with a piece of Bermuda
Bay cardstock cut at five and a half by eight and a half inches. Scored the eight and a half inch side at four
and a quarter inches to create the base of your card. Cut a five and a quarter by four inch piece
of white card stock. Since we are using photopolymers stamps, I
recommend using a stamping pad underneath your card cardstock. This will give you just the right amount of
cushion so that you can get clean, crisp stamped images. So ink up the balloon image with Bermuda Bay
ink. Stamp it on the white cardstock. Then without re-inking it, stamp it again
in a different area of the white card stock. Now notice that the second stamp balloon is
a lighter shade of blue than the first balloon you stamped. Well, congratulations. You just learned the stamp off technique. See, I told you it would be simple. Okay, now we’re going to repeat that stamping
technique with the other two balloon colors. So clean off the balloon stamp and ink it
up with Balmy blue ink. Stamp the image on the white card stock. Then without re-inking it, stamp it again
in a different area of the white card stock. Now for the last set of balloons, clean off
the balloon stamp and ink it up with crushed Curi ink. Stamp the balloon on the white card stock. Then without ranking it, stamp it again in
a different area of the white cards tech. Now ink up the balloon string with Balmy blue
ink stamp, a balloon string on the bottom of each of the balloons that you stamped. Now set that aside and let’s create the birthday
phrases that we will use to embellish the card. So stamp the greeting. It’s your birthday on a scrap piece of crushed
Curry, Balmy blue and Bermuda Bay card stock. You’re going to be using black ink to do all
of the stamping. Once you have all the words stamped, then
cut them out with a scissors or paper snips. Add a few dimensionals to the back of each
of the words and then arrange them on the card. Now I recommend arranging them on the card
first before you adhere them. Once you have an arrangement that you like,
then you can peel off the backing of the adhesive and start adhering them to the card. And that’s it. How cute and simple is this little birthday
card? Okay for this second card we are going to
use the same stamping off technique only this time we are going to use it with the large
hooray image as well as the balloons. So start with a piece of Bermuda Bay card
stock cut at five and a half by eight and a half inches. Score the eight and a half inch side at four
and a quarter inches to create the base of your card. Cut a five and a quarter by four inch piece
of white card stock. We are going to start by stamping on the left
hand side of the white card stock, so ink up the hooray image with the Bermuda Bay ink
and stamp it directly in the middle of the white card stock on the left hand side. Then without re-inking it, stamp it again
directly above that image you just stamped so that it is slightly overlapping it. Then go ahead and stamp it one more time without
re-inking it and do it directly above that second image. Now re-ink your stamp with the Bermuda Bay
Ink. Since we already have the bold Bermuda Bay
image in the center of the card stock, we need to stamp off on a scrap piece of paper. Now that we have stamped off the image, go
ahead and stamp the Hooray directly underneath the bold image in the middle of the card stock. Then without re-inking it, stamp it again
just below that image. Okay, now that we have the horray stamped,
let’s add the balloons. Ink Up the balloon image with Balmy blue ink. Stamp it on the right hand side of the white
card stock. Then without re-inking it, stamp it again
in a different area of the white card stock. Clean off the balloon stamp and ink it up
with Crushed Curry ink. Stamp it again on the White card stock then
without re-inking it, stamp again in a different area of the white card stock. Ink up the balloon string with Balmy blue
ink and stamp a balloon string on the bottom of each of the four balloons. Now set this piece aside and let’s create
the birthday phrase that we will use to embellish the card. So stamp the “It’s your birthday” greeting
on a scrap piece of Bermuda Bay. Cardstock using black ink. Cut out the words using your scissors or paper
snips. Add a few dimensionals and adhere it to the
card. And there you go. Another fun and simple little birthday card
idea. For more fun stamping techniques, click on

features the exact same stamping off technique to create all of the fun balloons. But this time I use some glimmer paper to
add a fun sparkly die cut to the front of the card. So the concept to create this card is the
same as the other cards I shared so I’m not going to walk you through it. But I will include a list of the supplies
and the step by step instructions in the printable tutorial, which you can find in the description
