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.

Pretty Pear {Faith in Nature}

Here, I made use of some distressing techniques. The stamp set featured is Faith in Nature, one of the Hostess Sets. I stamped the pear image with Chocolate chip craft ink on Whisper White and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Using the aquapainter, I colored in the pear with Lucky Limeade and Calypso Coral ink. The “thank you” sentiment is also from the same stamp set.

Next, I tore across the top corner of the card stock and used a sponge dauber with Creamy Caramel ink to distress the image layer. It was layered on Calypso Coral card stock, distressed in the same way as the image layer.

The card base is Crumb Cake card stock, layered with Chocolate Chip that was distressed along the edges using the distressing tool. A torn piece of  Well Worn DSP was also added to the card front. Since that paper is distressed looking, I didn’t need to do much to it other than tearing it and sponging it a bit. Finally, two orange glimmer brads finish off the card.

Wish Big Birthday Card for Guys

I am not particularly fond of making masculine cards, usually because I find them boring and plain. Men don’t like glitter or rhinestones or ribbon–things I use almost every time I make a card. For this project, I started out by picking colors most guys like, then layered the card stock in a striped pattern, reminiscent of a man’s sweater. The strips are Crushed Curry, Chocolate Chip, and Tempting Turquoise on a Crumb Cake base.

The stamps are from Bring on the Cake. I stamped the “Wish Big” in chocolate chip ink on Very Vanilla card stock and cut it out with scissors. Then, I stamped the “Happy Birthday” in Temping Turquoise ink on Very Vanilla, swiping the edges in So Saffron ink. I attached the hand to the card stock with a stampin dimensional and colored in the words with Tangerine Tango marker.

I matted the Very Vanilla onto Tangerine Tango card stock after paper piercing. Along the bottom edge, I added Tangerine Tango Pom Pom Trim. Now, I’ll admit, it’s not very manly, but I had to put my own personal touch on the card somewhere!
