Bring on the “Number Cake” Birthday Card

My nephew turned 2 today, so I made him this card. I really like this number stamp from Bring on the Cake, and I especially like to emboss it before coloring in the numbers.

The card base is Riding Hood Red, layered with Nursery Suite DSP. I stamped the numbers onto whisper white and then heat embossed with Black Embossing Powder. I colored in the numbers with So Saffron Marker and the number 2 with Riding Hood Red Marker. Then, I used the Corner Rounder Punch on the top corners to make it look like a cake.

The “cake stand” is a strip of Tempting Turquoise punched with the Scallop Edge Border Punch. I used the cropadile to add holes to each scallop and then threaded White Taffeta Ribbon through the holes.

I used chocolate chip card stock behind the cake to frame it. White Gel Pen around the edges makes it pop and coordinates with the white details in the DSP. At the bottom, I added 3 old olive buttons from the Designer Buttons Brights Collection.

“Birthday Wishes” Game Spinner Card

I think this Take a Spin stamp set is perfect for making birthday cards. Young or old, anyone would enjoy getting this type of card and spinning it over and over again. I know I do it when I’m making the cards!

The card base is So Saffron, layered with Chocolate Chip cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″. Then, I used Nursery Suite Specialty DSP in the So Saffron/White pattern cut to 3 3/4″ x 3″. Above that, across the front of the card, I used 1 1/4″ Striped Grosgrain in Pumpkin Pie.

I used Stampin UP Markers to color the stamp (direct to stamp), then colored in some of the images with the Markers as well. The colors I used were: Early Espresso, Marina Mist, Wild Wasabi, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Regal Rose, and Daffodil Delight.

The game board is layered on a 2″ square of Marina Mist card stock, and I used the Game Spinner Hands from the Occasions Mini Catalog. For more tips and tricks on using the Game Spinner Hands, see this card I made.

Finally, the sentiment at the bottom is from So Happy for You from the Sale-a-bration catalog, stamped in Chocolate Chip ink.

Valentine Card Treats for Kids

Here is a cute idea for class valentines. The little cards are covering Charms Sweet Pops.

For the girls in the class, I chose to use the Greeting Card Kids stamp set. The little girl holding the heart is adorable! I stamped the image on Whisper White card stock (2″ x 2 3/4″) with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it in with Copic Markers. On the heart, I used the 2 way glue pen and romantic red glitter for a bit of sparkle. The sentiment is from Filled with Love stamped in Real Red ink. That piece is matted onto designer paper (2 1/4″ x 3″)  from the Love Patterns DSP (part of the Filled with Love Promotion but can be purchased separately as well). Finally, the card base is Pretty in Pink card stock (2 1/2″ x 6 1/2″) folded in half. I stapled the bottom closed after sliding in a lollipop.

As for the boys, my daughter and I chose Make a Monster stamp set. The image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic Markers, then I went over it with Pear Pizzaz Marker so it would match the green in the Nursery Suite DSP. The card base is Close to Cocoa (retired). To make the card a bit more fun, I gave the monster some googly eyes and highlighted his teeth with the Signo White Gel Pen. The sentiment is from Filled with Love, stamped in Marina Mist ink.

On the back, I added some Whisper White card stock and had my daughter write her classmates’ names, as well as her own.
