The art of gift-giving isn’t just about what’s inside the box. Adding a personal touch to your greeting card can make all the difference, especially when it’s for someone very special. That’s why I’m excited to share with you this really cute new set from Stamp Anniething that can be customized for any occasion and recipient.
I created a birthday card using the Build A Caring Bear set, as well as patterned paper from the SUMMER TROPICS pack as a background. So, let’s dive in and see how to make this versatile square card.
The first thing you’ll need is a 5 1/4 in square card base. This size will provide enough space to showcase your creativity while still being efficient enough to mail. Next, you’re going to create your characters using the Build A Caring Bear set. The great thing about this set is that you can mix and match the different elements like faces, arms and belly tag to create your unique bear. I decided to go with a Happy Cupcake Bear because I wanted to create a festive and colorful birthday card.
Once I BUILT my bear, I started creating a fun birthday scene. To do this, I downloaded a free digital image that coordinated with the image on my bear’s belly. It’s easy to do and it provides a great way to add a personal touch to your card. I went with a cupcake!
I wanted to create texture on the card, so I used patterned paper from the SUMMER TROPICS pack to make the background. The bright colors and versatile patterns are perfect for a celebration and it compliments the bear image well. I cut a total of four (4) two-and-a-quarter inch squares and a 2 1/2 inch square in white and a 2 3/4 inch square in black to frame and then place in center on the diagonal using double-sided foam tape. I had a small square scrap I added from the Pets Grab & Go Box (no longer available), that I added to the center of the square.
Finally, I added a sentiment to the top right of the card, wishing the recipient a BEARY sweet birthday. It’s simple, but heartfelt, and it ties everything together nicely. Added some Enamel Dots from Stamp Anniething to repeat the pops of color in a triangular pattern, to draw your rye from the sentiment to the cherry on the cupcake and back to the sentiment again.
In conclusion, with little effort, anyone can make a sweet, personalized birthday card using the Build A Caring Bear set and Summer Tropics patterned paper. You can change the occasion, color scheme or even switch out the face, belly badge and arm positions to create a unique design tailored to whomever you’re giving it to. It’s a thoughtful gesture that shows you care, and the recipient will surely appreciate the time and effort put into it. Happy creating!
I am following up after my LIVE held on Tuesday, 3/14, International Pi Day, where I started to share how to get creative and make something fun and unique to honor the day! And what better and CALORIE FREE way to celebrate Pi Day, than by creating a pie shaker element using the Circle Shaker Basics 1 set from Stamp Anniething?
A pre-recorded video will be shared on the Stamp Anniething Stampers Facebook page shortly which will provide additional details and elaborate more on how to create this shaker element and two 5.5 inch square cards. My initial LIVE was cut short due to a family emergency and appreciate everyone’s concern. We are all good now!
To get started, you’ll need the Circle Shaker Basics 1 set, some cardstock in your desired color, chipboard, acetate sheet, shaker bits and liquid adhesive. Begin by die-cutting 5 circles using the circle “frame” die from the set – one from cardstock and the others from chipboard. Make sure when gluing together, they match up in size.
Next, layer of each die-cut with the liquid adhesive and use brayer or your fingers to make sure the layers are stacked evenly and ensure there is no air or separation between layers to prevent your shaker bits from escaping.
Now, add the shaker bits-on top of the cardstock circle in the well you created, as desired – you can add whatever you want to create interest (sequins, clay shaker bits, etc). I used jelly dots. You can use one color or simply mix a variety of colors for a more random look, as I have done here. Once you’re happy with how the shaker filling are arranged, carefully glue the cardstock circle onto the top on the acetate circle to seal.
Finally, you can add some touches to make it look like a pie – for example, you can cut small strips of card stock in 1/4 in strips either with decorative scissors or your paper trimmer. Consider ink blending the edges to create a visual effect of being browned in the oven. Other options for a decorative edge could be to use the edger dies from Stamp Anniething to make it look more like rippled pastry to form the lattice crust.
And voila – you now have a pie shaker element that you can use to decorate cards, scrapbook pages, or even as a fun little trinket to give away as a gift, attached to a tag, memordex card or mini recipe album! The possibilities are endless, and the best part is that you can customize it to fit your personal style and preference.
So why not get your creative juices flowing and make your own pie shaker element to not just celebrate International Pi Day, but stretch your current die stash and use your supplies in a new, unique and fun ways!?!

Thank you to the brave men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice. This card’s color pallet was inspired by the colors in our American 🇺🇸Flag.
I created this card using images from the Bumblebee and Roses set from Annie’s Garden.
I stamped the flowers onto a A2 size card panel using Memento Black Ink on card stock that is alcohol ink friendly. I used 110 lb Hammermill paper.
I started coloring the leaves using my COPIC markers. Y04, YG07 and G09 were used to color the leaves.
I don’t always go ahead, as I like the ink to be wet when coloring so that the colors blend automatically, the work is done for you when you apply the ink layers while the ink underneath is still wet, or at least damp.
To color the RED roses, I used the following blend: BV23 (shadow/under paint), R22, R24, R29, and R39.
COPIC Blends are as follows:
Blue Roses – B01, FBG2, FB2, B12 and B18
White Roses – C1, Y000 and RV000
Bumblebee – Y000, YR23, YR27, FY1 and BG11
Wood – E57, E53, E51, E50 (shadow BV31 & E13)
Once the Copic coloring was complete, I used Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol to add extra depth to the shadows. Thank you for your support. Please like and follow! Happy Crafting!❤️
