Stampin’ Up! Bonanza Buddies Birthday Card

There are some stamp sets that just make me smile when I use them. This card is made with one of them…Bonanza Buddies. The animals are just so stinkin’ cute that you don’t have to be a kid to like them. And who doesn’t love those bright, cheerful colors? Unfortunately, this set is going away so get it now while supplies last. It’s linked below.

The Cuts

  • Terracotta Tile Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″ card base scored at 5 1/2″
  • Bonanza Buddies Designer Series Paper: 5 1/4″ x 4″, 2 banner dies and a 4 1/2″ x 1/2″ strip.
  • Basic Black Cardstock: 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″, 4 3/8″ x 3 1/8″, 2 banner dies and a hat die. I like the way the black makes the colors pop and yet gives a calm place for the eye to settle.
  • Bermuda Bay Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 3″
  • Whisper White Cardstock: 4 1/2″ x 3 1/2″, lion dies, 2 hat dies and 2 pom pom dies.

The Creating

  • The lion is stamped in Crushed Curry and Terracotta Tile Ink.
  • The two hats are stamped second generation Terracotta Tile Ink. The front one is the white die stamped with the confetti package. I just wanted to change up the stripe pattern in the hat next to the stripe pattern of the lion mane.
  • The front pom pom is Terracotta Tile Ink and the inside is Crushed Curry Ink (both first generation).
  • The confetti on the Bermuda Bay layer is from So Sentimental (I put the two on the same block) and is stamped tone on tone with Bermuda Bay Ink.
  • The sentiments are Memento Black Ink.
  • The lions head is mounted on a Stampin’ Dimensional. The Mane has two. The tip of the tail has half a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional and the front pom pom has a Mini.
  • All other layering is adhered with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive. Note: I cut the blue banner in half and positioned around the orange one.
  • I accented with Wink of Stella to the front pom pom and the blue banner.
