A Little Birdie Birthday Card

This is an oldie but goodie. I love the A Little Birdie Told Me stamp set. I made this using some scraps I had on my desk and it came together nicely.  The card base is Crumb Cake, layered with Chocolate Chip card stock that I embossed with the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder.

The stamp was colored in with Copic markers and I attached the party hat with a glue dot. The background card stock is Gumball Green.

For the sentiment, I stamped it on Whisper White and then punched it out with the 1″ Circle Punch matted with Gumball Green. The strip of paper at the bottom is from Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper, notched into a V at the end.

Bold and Bright Bazaar

As soon as I saw the International Bazaar Designer Series Paper I knew I had to have it. It’s bright and the patterns and shapes are really cool. I thought it would go well with the Moroccan type stamp from Summer Silhouettes.

I used Crumb Cake for the base, layered with In Color Midnight Muse. I stamped the Moroccan print stamp from Summer Silhouettes in Midnight Muse ink up the bottom half of the card stock. A little strip of International Bazaar DSP in this bright feather pattern goes a long way.

The sentiment is from Well Scripted, stamped on Whisper White card stock. I used the Apothecary Accents Framelits to cut out the sentiment, as well as a piece of Summer Starfruit card stock. Then I traced around the inside of the die with a pencil and cut out the White card stock to mat it with the Starfruit. To finish off, I pierced around the edge with the Essentials Paper Piercing Pack.

Here is another card I made using the International Bazaar DSP. With Midnight Muse as the base, the DSP is the star of the show. In keeping with the rainbow theme, I inked up the sentiment from Word Play in rainbow colors by coloring direct to stamp with Stampin UP Markers. I stamped it onto Whisper White card stock and cut it out with the Apothecary Accents Framelits Die.

Before adhering the DSP to the base, I cut out a window in the lower corner using the Apothecary Accents Framelits Die. Then, I slipped in the piece I stamped with the sentiment so the front of the card is flush.

Cute Cupcake Birthday Card

I made this card for a swap last month, but I’m just getting around to posting it now. It features Easy Events, an all occasion stamp set with cute line drawn images perfect for coloring.

The card base is Crumb Cake card stock. I used the same color, cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″, and embossed it with the Stripes Embossing Folder and the Big Shot. To give it more dimension, I used Crumb Cake ink and a sponge dauber to highlight the embossed image.

As for the stamped image, I used Versamark ink and black embossing powder on Whisper White card stock, punched with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch. After heat embossing, I colored in the image with various Stampin UP Markers. The frosting on the cupcake was embellished with Dazzling Details.

Behind the stamped image, I made a scalloped circle by cutting 2 So Saffron flowers from the Island Floral Bigz Die and layering them. Be sure to alternate the petals to achieve the scalloped effect. Adhere the scallops together, then the white circle on top. I used stampin dimensionals to attach the scallop to the card front.

The ribbon is 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon in Regal Rose and Daffodil Delight. Tie it around the Embossed Stripes layer, then adhere that to the card base with stampin dimensionals.
