Stampin' Up! Bringing Birthdays Back & 5-Step QC Birthday Blooms Card

Stampin' Up!  #imbringingbackbirthdays stamp (143573)

I was a busy stamper and card sender this weekend, as I did a little bit of catch up on correspondence.  I find myself doing this once a month.  If you're anything like me, you might make a lot of cards, but don't always get them in the mail on a timely basis.  Here's what I got done..

  • 19 birthday cards
  • 25 thinking of you cards
  • 4 thank you cards
  • 3 get well cards
  • 10 welcome to the STARS packets
  • 19 STARS prize packs
  • and more!

My postal person just picked everything up and they are on their way to brighten a lot of people's day!  Nothing better than getting a handmade card in the mail!!

Here's one of the many Birthday designs that were sent out...

 #imbringingbackbirthdays, Birthday Blooms & Birthday Bouquet Designer Series card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping

This card was inspired by a swap I received from Sandy Carlson.  My favorite thing about her card was how the gorgeous Birthday Blooms flower was stamped without the need for coloring.  I did change up the colors and greeting for my card.  This quick and cute (QC) card is a perfect way to say "happy birthday"! 

5 Step Birthday Blooms QC Card

  1. Fold in half Watermelon Wonder card base (8-1/2" x 5-1/2")
  2. Stamp large flower image with Watermelon Wonder ink

Have you heard? 

Shannon West, from the Stampin’ Up!’s home office, is bringing birthdays back with her own #imbringingbirthdaysback movement. Read her story on Stampin’ Up!'s blog.

You too, can join the movement.  Send handmade birthday cards to your friends, family, neighbors, coworkers, and stamp them with the #imbringingbirthdaysback stamp.

I don't have my stamp yet.  That's because when Stampin' Up! first offered them last week - to their surprise, the "while supplies last" offer only lasted 4-hours!  However...due to overwhelming popularity of the stamp, they announced that not only would they bring-back-the-stamp but that they would bring it back long-term!  

Beginning today...
the #imbringingbirthdaysback stamp (143573) (click to shop)
will be available again and...
is now a part of Stampin' Up!'s stamp offering for the foreseeable future!
