#HB2U Birthday Card

Hello there... 

So we have another teenager on our hands!  My nephew turned 13 and I can hardly believe it.  He is a very energetic and curious boy and Auntie enjoys our time together.  He is still wanting to hang out with me, with an occasional snuggle, I take what I can get.  The snuggles are lessening so I adore those that I do get. 

Just like pictures, I take them when I can get them.  Ha! Ha!  Kids are so funny... 


For his birthday, he wanted to spend the weekend with me.  So when we got to celebrate with family and friends, I made this card inspire by a card I saw made by SU Demo Amanda Mertz.  Inside he found thirteen one dollar bills (yes, only $13 as I spent a small fortune the weekend he was with

I used Thick Basic White card stock for the card base and Basic Black for the mat.  I die cut the #HB2U out of this black mat to save paper.  I also die cut each one three times to layer up and it made them kind of pop.  I highly recommend using our Adhesive Sheets and the letters and numbers are thin.  The adhesive sheets made it a breeze to adhere. 

I cut random angles from the Glorious Gingham 6x6 Designer Series Paper.  Not much stamping on this one, except my happy birthday sentiment inside, but I like how it turned out.   Hope you do to.

Using Your 6x6 Designer Paper

Hello!  And thanks for stopping by. 

Do you hate cutting into a 6 x 6 designer series paper stack or 12 x 12 for that matter?  Do you find your saving paper, or wish you could show more?  Well, I have a solution for you!

Here's another fall project share featuring the All About Autumn suite collection.  I am gone to show you how to show off as much of a piece of 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  So now you don't have to be so worried about cutting that 12 x 12 or using up your 6x 6 papers.  

Look at that shining foil!

Here's how the card opens... and how it shows off just about a full piece of 6 x 6 DSP!

So I did not notice when I took the photo, but the plain white rectangle looks like it is attached to the front rectangle, but it is not.  The black mat rectangle and the inside white are the same size.  If that area is not large enough for your sentiment, don't be afraid to put a piece of white on the back of your card.

  • The card base is 5-1/5 x 8-1/2 and scored at 2-1/8 and 4-1/4
  • 6 x 6 DSP is cut down to 5-3/8 x 6 and the cut into 2" strips.  
  • Another piece of DSP (the one with foil) is 2 x 5-3/8

I think I'm going to adapt this multiple paneled card for Christmas!  I have lots of DSP to share. 

Here is a list of supplies I used:

We BEE Stamping TEAM Blog Hop So Grateful


Welcome!  Thank you for stopping by our We BEE Stamping Team Blog Hop.  This month's theme we have name "so grateful".  I don't think we always take the time to think about all the things we are grateful for.  It is easy to go to that bad place, so let's take a minute; close your eyes and think of your grateful list.  I will give you a few of minute before I share my project. 

My Grateful List:

  • My family.  I have such a close and blessed relationship with my dad.  I count my blessings every day
  • Good friends.  I have so many friends new and old.  My friend Maggie and I have been in each other's life since 1st grade!
  • My home.  I am proud to have a good roof over my head
  • My stamping family and friends.   I have made such wonderful connections through stamping.  I'm so grateful each and every one. 

Thank you for letting me share a bit of me.  Let's take a look at my project... 


What says it better for this time of year and being grateful than the All About Autumn suite collection.  I cannot get enough of it, and my favorite 2023-2025 In Color called Moody Mauve.  

So I have used Moody Mauve for the card base with a 4-1/8 x 5-3/8 piece of the DSP All About About.  Look at that foil! 

I then cut another piece of DSP (the leaves) 2-7/8 x 4-1/4 and used Basic White for a mat that is 3 x 4-3/8.

I inked the leaf stamp in Moody Mauve ink then added Mossy Meadow to the edges with a sponge dauber. 

So let's buzzzzz on ahead and see what Karen Burke over at Razzle Dazzle Ink is sharing today:
