The Sale-A-Bration The Gang’s All Meer is a super cute stamp set for group birthday cards. I added flowers from the Sale-A-Bration Thoughtful Blooms stamp set & the Small Bloom Punch and my favorite new birthday sentiment from the Sale-A-Bration Happy Birthday To You stamp set to make this card.
Start with a Petal Pink cs card base. Cut the Calypso Coral cs panel and the Very Vanilla cs panel. Dry emboss the Calypso Coral cs with the Subtle 3D embossing folder and glue it to the card base.
Stamp the meerkat group from the Gang’s All Meer stamp set on the Very Vanilla cs panel centered about 1 1/2″ from the bottom in Soft Suede ink. Stamp the smallest flower from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set in Petal Pink ink above and around the stamped group of meerkats. Color the meerkats with the Stampin’ Blends. Add Wink of Stella to the flower centers and eyes of the meerkats for sparkle.
Stamp the standing meerkat from the Gang’s All Here stamp set in Soft Suede ink on Very Vanilla cs scrap and color with the Stampin’ Blends. Stamp the party hat from the Gang’s All Meer stamp set in Calypso Coral ink on Very Vanilla cs scrap and color with the light Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend. Use your Paper Snips to fussy cut out the meerkat and party hat. Add Wink of Stella to the meerkat’s eyes and the hat for sparkle.
Cut the Petal Pink cs sentiment layers. Stamp the sentiment from the Happy Birthday To You set on the largest layer in Soft Suede ink and glue it across the stamped Very Vanilla cs panel about 1/8″ from the top. Stamp the small sentiment layer with the sentiment from the Gang’s All Meer stamp set in Soft Suede and glue it flush to the bottom right of the stamped Very Vanilla cs panel about 1/8″ from the bottom. Glue the stamped Very Vanilla cs panel to the embossed Calypso Coral cs panel centered at a slight angle.
Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the meerkat and party hat overlapping the stamped meerkat group and sentiment layer.
Stamp the lined flower from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set in Petal Pink ink on Petal Pink cs and Calypso Coral cs. Punch out the flowers with the Small Bloom punch. Dry emboss the flowers with the Subtle 3D embossing folder. Then gentle crumple the flowers to give them dimension. Use glue dots to attach three to the top of the card front above the sentiment and two flowers to bottom of the card front overlapping the sentiment. Color rhinestones with the dark Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends and add them to the flowers.
Don’t forget to add a Very Vanilla cs inside panel to write your message. I stamped the sentiment from the Sending You Thoughts stamp set in Soft suede ink. I also stamped small flowers in Petal Pink ink and add a punched flower to the inside and back of the card to pull the theme through.
