It has been close to a year since I created a Stampin Up Zentangle card. I decided it was time to create one, so I did for my sister’s birthday. I used a few Stampin Up products for the Zentangle. If you’ve never tried to the art of Zentangle, here’s a website chocked full of tangle patterns that are fairly easy to learn. I hope you try them.
The following provides a closeup of the ice cream cone in the center of the card along with the Happy Birthday sentiment.
Tangling is a wonderful and relaxing form of art. It can be time consuming; it just depends on the size of your creation and the patterns used. When I tangle, I am certainly in a “Zen” state of mind!
SUPPLIES USED FOR THE STAMPIN UP ZENTANGLE HAPPY BIRTHDAY CARD:
Stamps: Stampin Up You Rule Stamp Set (129264) and the retired Stampin Up Clearly For You Stamp Set (I used the crown from this set)
Paper: Stampin Up Whisper White Card Stock and Elegant Eggplant Card Stock
Ink: Stampin Up Elegant Eggplant Classic Ink and non-Stampin Up Markers
Just in case you decide to replicate the Stampin Up Zentangle card, I tried to keep track of the tangle patterns that I used. I may have left one out, but you can find them on the above website. I made slight changes to some of the patterns, and my hands aren’t steady, so some of the patterns are not perfect.
The tangle patterns I used are:
- Zenplosion Folds
- Poke Leaves

STAMPIN UP ZENTANGLE HAPPY BIRTHDAY CARD
For me, the month of February requires several Happy Birthday Cards as several relatives’ birthdays are during this month. Happy Birthday Cards are greeting cards that you cannot have enough of. Today’s share is a Happy Birthday Card for my daughter who turns 41. (Gee, I’m really feeling old!)
I thought that some rosettes would look good with this design of Stampin’ Up!’s Floral District Designer Series Paper. The following picture is a closeup of the rosettes.
Did you notice the thread in each button that is on top of the rosettes? The thread is from three different colors of Stampin’ Up! Ribbon that I unraveled and inserted into the buttons. This is a good substitute for Baker’s Twine if you do not have any.
