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.

Clean & Simple (CAS) Thank You Card

Normally, I’m not one for clean and simple. I like a lot of fluff on my cards 🙂 Furthermore, I’m late to the Inspired by Nature party because while I’ve had this set for a while, I’ve never used it. We planted some pink coneflowers in our garden over the summer, so I decided now would be a good time to put some ink to that stamp.

I used Gina K Luxury Base Weight White card stock. It’s great for a one layer card because it’s super thick and sturdy. I inked the stamp using my Stampin Up Markers–the stems with Pear Pizzaz, the flowers with Blushing Bride and a little bit of Melon Mambo, plus Soft Suede for the flowers’ centers.

The sentiment is actually 2 separate stamps from Thank You Kindly. I stamped “thanks” with Blushing Bride ink and the other with Soft Suede ink.

I wish there was more to say, but that’s it! The thing that took the longest was coloring on the stamp with the markers. The rest of the card was done in just a few minutes .

Kimono Kids

I don’t know what drew me to this stamp set but I just thought it was cute and might be fun to color. I stamped the images with Basic Black ink on Whisper White card stock and colored them in with Stampin Write Markers. That was layered onto Kiwi Kiss card stock and Poppy Parade behind that. The card base is Gina K Luxury Base weight white.

The sentiment is what gets me: One good friend is worth a thousand relatives. It makes me laugh because sometimes that can be true! I stamped it on whisper white and punched it out with the Modern Label Punch.
