Bring on the Cake Birthday Card with Pom Pom Trim

I LOVE the Bring on the Cake stamp set and there are so many images that look great embossed. Here, I used the “Happy Birthday” stamp, with Chocolate Chip Craft ink and heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. Then, I colored in the letters using Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Certainly Celery, and Pumpkin Pie Markers.

The buttons play off the paper and ink colors: Daffodil Delight and Old Olive from the Designer Buttons Brights Collection and a clear heart from Bitty Buttons. I cut out a Melon Mambo heart and attached it to the back of the clear button to make it look pink. All the buttons are threaded with white string. I colored one of the strings with Melon Mambo Marker to give a pop of color. Tiny Glue Dots secure the buttons to the card stock.

For the card base, I used Early Espresso card stock and American Crafts Patterned paper. The Daffodil Delight Pom Pom Trim was attached along the lower edge of Early Espresso card stock with Tombow Mono Multi Glue. Just run a bead of glue, lay the pom pom trim down and press lightly until it sticks. That layer is attached to the base with Stampin Dimensionals.

Inside, I used 2 more sentiments from Bring on the Cake, stamped in Early Espresso ink and colored in with Markers. I used some of the patterned paper and Melon Mambo card stock inside to match the front.

Lots of Pink Girly Birthday Card {Birthday Bliss}

My daughter turned 4 today and asked for a pink cake with pink frosting so I made her this pretty pink card to match.

Card base is Melon Mambo textured card stock, layered with textured Pink Pirouette. The stamp is called Birthday Bliss and I used Melon Mambo and Pink Pirouette ink to stamp on whisper white, punched out with a 7/8″ square punch. Those squares were layered onto textured Early Espresso with stampin dimensionals. In between, I twisted 1/8″ Pretty in Pink Taffeta Ribbon and attached it to the back with sticky tape.

Along the bottom of the early espresso layer, I added pink pirouette and melon mambo circles made with the 1/2″ Circle Punch, adhered with mini glue dots.

The sentiment was stamped with early espresso ink on whisper white card stock, then cut out. I also stamped the center portion with melon mambo ink, cut out the rectangle, and attached it to the oval piece with stampin dimensionals.

A tiny pink bow using the 1/8″ Pretty in Pink Taffeta Ribbon finishes off the card.

Scalloped Heart of Hearts Polka Dot Card

I had the idea in my head to somehow punch a hole in the Scalloped Heart of Hearts die cut and have ribbon pulled through into a bow or knot. I couldn’t quite get it to work how I envisioned, but this turned out cute anyway.

The base is Melon Mambo card stock, layered with a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Whisper White that I ran through the Big Shot with the Swiss Dots Embossing folder. You could easily use the new Perfect Polka Dots Embossing folder, but I don’t have that one (yet). After embossing the White, I adhered a piece of Soft Suede Polka Dot Ribbon around the front and wrapped the ends around the back. Then, I attached the White to the card base with SNAIL Adhesive.

The heart was made using the Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit with Melon Mambo card stock. The Kraft heart behind it is the heart “leftover” from the Movers & Shapers Die with the Magnetic Heart insert. I layered the two hearts together, then punched a hole in the center with the Cropadile (larger hole setting). I cut a piece of Soft Suede Polka Dot Ribbon (about 8″ long) and slipped both ends through the hole, pulling them both until there was about 1/2″ of folded ribbon left in the back. Next, I tied a bow and trimmed the ends. To keep the ribbon flat behind the heart, I used a Mini Glue Dot to stick the ribbon to the back of the Melon Mambo heart. Then, I used Stampin Dimensionals to adhere the heart to the card front.

As for the sentiment, I stamped “love you much” from Well Scripted in Melon Mambo ink on Whisper White. I punched it out with the Large Oval Punch and then layered it onto a Soft Suede Scallop Oval Punch out. I added white dots with my White Gel Pen and then attached it to the card base with Stampin Dimensionals.
