Throwback Thursday # 12

The Stampin' Up! Throwback Thursday stamp set that I used for today's card has stamps for several different occasions including winter, Christmas and birthdays. I really like the little ladybug stamp but I decided to do a birthday card with the balloon stamp. The stamp set is called Stipple Occasions.

Stipple Occasions stamp set, Stampin' Up!, Trude Thoman, Stamp with Trude,, birthday card, Throwback Thursday

I like the way the Crystal Effects looks on the balloons. I stamped each balloon on a 1" strip and punched the bottom with the Banner Triple punch. It is the first time that I've pulled out that punch and used it. It makes creating banners for your projects so easy!
It is hard to tell from this photo, but the banners are popped up above the Crushed Curry paper with Dimensionals and the Crushed Curry matted on the white is popped up above the Tangerine Tango with Dimensionals.

Here's the list of products I used:


  • Stipple Occasions stamp set
  • Happiest Birthday Wishes (sentiment)
  • Gumball Green stitched ribbon
  • Brights Designer Series Paper Stack (Tangerine Tango)
  • Sweet Dreams Designer Series Paper (crushed Curry)


  • Whisper White card stock
  • Jet Black Stazon
  • Wild Wasabi Classic Stampin' ink
  • Tangerine Tango Classic Stampin' ink
  • Crushed Curry Classic Stampin' ink
  • Perfect Plum Classic Stampin' ink
  • Watermelon Wonder In-Color ink
  • Crystal Effects
  • Banner Triple Punch 
  • Dimensionals
Now, go pull out one of your old favorite stamp sets and make your own Throwback project!

Have a blessed day,

  1. Neat card Trude. Love the shading behind the balloons!!!

  2. Thanks Lynn! That shading is actually a part of that stamp...easy ☺ I wanted to have a contrast between the color in the balloons and the backgrounds so I used the crystal effects to make the balloons shiny. Love it!
