Bonanza Buddies, Birthday Bonanza, Birthday Card, 2020 Stampin' Up! Spring Mini Catalog

I still had the "Bonanza Buddies "stamp set sitting out (no big surprise there, is it?  LOL) so I thought I'd play with it and get a different set out for tomorrow.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.

I had some scrap pieces from the "Birthday Bonanza" Designer Series Paper (DSP).  They were cut 1-3/4" x 3-7/8" each.  I taped them at the bottom part of the card. I just made the space equally all around.  That left a large opening at the top but I managed to figure out how to make it look like the pieces of DSP weren't too small.  I just wanted to use up those pieces and I sure did!

I cut a 2-1/4" x 2-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock and a 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" piece of Bermuda Bay card stock for the layer.

I die cut the koala bear from the "Birthday Bonanza" DSP 12" x 12" pack.  I set him on the Whisper White square so I could see where I needed to stamp the balloon strings.  I set this up in my Stamparatus so I could get it exactly where I want and as dark as I wanted too.

After stamping the strings, I taped the piece to the Bermuda Bay square.  

I stamped the balloons and the hat on Whisper White card stock. I used Flirty Flamingo, Bermuda Bay and Crushed Curry ink.  I die cut all of them.

I set the Crushed Curry and Bermuda Bay balloons in place using a bit of glue. I also glued the brim of the hat to the head of the Koala and the pom pom. I set these aside.

I took the word piece from some pieces I had left over in my latest Paper Pumpkin kit.  But you can cut your own.  Cut your Whisper White piece 5/8" x 2-3/4" and cut the ends to look like ribbon ends.  The piece was too light and got lost in the DSP, so I cut a 7/8" x 3" piece of Bermuda Bay card stock for the layer.  I set that aside.

I took the square piece and and added the Flirty Flamingo balloon, setting it in place using a Dimensional.  I set the Koala bear in place using Dimensionals and I added a small one to the back of the hat.  Line him up so his hands cover the strings.

I added Dimensionals to the back of the squares layer and set it in place on the card. I centered the tips so they were equal on the sides and about 1/4" down from the top.

Then I added the words using Dimensionals and the card was done.

I have had SO much fun with this set. I am thinking about ordering another package of the DSP. I think this set makes great children's cards and using the DSP and dies make them quick to do too!

Thank you SO much for taking the time to stop by today,

I'm loving Bonanza cards I can do with just the DSP, minimal stamping required. Thanks for another great share
