Today we celebrated my Husband John’s birthday. We had a wonderful day with family. We did some swimming and finished off with a fabulous cookout.
When I first saw this sneak peek set from Stampin’ Up! Lots of Bots (releasing July 1st), I had to have it! Cute, and I could put my spin on it….changing it up so I could give it to John today.
Aren’t these robots just so cute? Let me explain the main image, as they are changed up a bit…This is to show you to think outside the box. Utilize a stamp set to its fullest. This stamp set comes with three robots for three different occassions, with three different elements that coordinates with the sentiments.
Here is what I did to create my robot birthday scene:
Omitted gift bag from robots left hand.
Used the sentiment for the main sentiment on the card front.
Omitted icepack from head and added a birthday hat from First Robot.
Took gift bag from First Robot and have it laying next to his leg due to his arm missing LOL!!!
Omitted flowers and replaced with a balloon from First Robot.
Added birthday hat from First Robot.
That, my stamping friends, is how to get the most use out of a single stamp set. My hubby is so worth the work that went into creating this card. Although, I did take it back from him after he opened it to display for a while in my studio. He totally understands. This way, it is displayed and a nice reminder of his special day.
The inside of the card is a nice little pop-up surprise. I used Stampin’ Up!’s new Look Here Bigz XL die that will also be available on July 1st (I’ve mentioned my love for pop-up books and cards, so this purchase was a given *wink*).
You can’t go wrong with a gift card right? I see myself using this die a whole lot during the upcoming holidays. Honestly, this is SOOOOO simple to create (and fun)!
Finally, added one more robot to the card to continue the theme from the card front to the inside.
