Hi everyone, this is Yana Smakula and welcome back for another Yippee For Yana video!

Today I have a simplenumbered Birthday Card idea to share using a few current favorite supplies from Simon Says Stamp. My card is for 25th Birthday, but you can change the numberto be anything you need, from 1st birthday to 99th!

One of the key ingredients for these projects is the coordinating die set for the Birthday Numbers stamp set. I’m using just the dies today and actually skipping stamping the numbers. Having dies you can create all sorts of looks; the look I’m going for today is negative die cutting.

I wanted to add some interest to my background panel so I heat embossed Rose Lattice background background stamp in White Satin Pearl embossing powder from Hero Arts to have a tone on tone look. It doesn’t show much on the card, but it gives it a nicetouch. Alternatively, you can opt to use specialty paper for the front panel ofyour card, like woodgrain cardstock, you can also use something like a textureplate and add some dry embossing or texture details to the card front, justsomething to make it less stark white.

I wanted to decorate the number openings, the positive number space with flowers. As if the numbers are blooming. To do thisI used floral images from the Moments of Grace stamp, it’s such a timeless andunique set, and even though it has a lot of sentiments for sympathy cards Ioften find myself using it for other occasion projects.

I didn’t want to stamp flowers in black ink, so I opted for heat embossing once again and embossed them in Antique Gold embossing powder. I used a bit different color combo – pale violets, pinks and greens.BV000, BV00 and BV11, RV23, RV11, RV10, G99, G94 and YG03 markers.

To add some color in the negative die cut opening I ink blended Velvet Orchid and Deep Purple ink colors directly onto the cardbase. I used foam adhesive tape and foam mounted the negative die cut palenonto my card base. Once that was in place I used both foam adhesive and glueand adhered all of the floral elements.

Finally, I added that Let’s Celebrate sentiment,a green enamel heart and a few purple stamped hearts on this card.

Have fun stamping!

  1. This is such a beautiful card and a fantastic way to use these number dies. I am definitely going to be trying this. The background stamp looks beautiful on it as well. Gorgeous!

  2. I love this idea of putting the flowers in the cut out numbers. Thank you for sharing this technique. Your card was simple, but elegant.

  3. I love every inch of this card from the color palette, the flowers, gold embossing, white trellis, you name it! I can’t wait to give this a try!

  4. A lovely idea! I can see how it can be done simply using pattern papers and still be beautiful! Pinning this one to remember the inspiration! Thank you!

  5. Gorgeous card – I love the regal pairing of purple and gold. I also love the almost reverse layering – all the decorative colour, layers, and detail coming from behind the die cut numbers and layered through them – beautiful and unusual!
