A birthday wish...

Hi Stampers!

Today I have a card that I made a while back but I still wanted to share it with you!  It's a fun (and easy) card that I made with the Birthday Cake a la carte stamp (retired). I adore this color combo.  I think it would also look fabulous in a combo of Hello Honey and Blackberry Bliss in case you want to CASE this card but switch it up a bit! I am in love with the chevrons on this stamp and how they coordinate with the chevron paper that is in the Brights paper stack!  Gah, it makes me giddy when everything matches so nicely!  Love that about Stampin' Up!  

See those rhinestones on the cake?  To keep them straight, I used the rhinestone strip that comes in the Basic Jewels Rhineston pack and just cut it down to the size that I needed.  Who has the time to perfectly line up all of those rhinestones?  No one!  I love that the work was already done for me.  

 

Every stamper has made tons of birthday cards.  Do you have one that you made and really love?  Let me know in the comments!

Freshly Made Sketches 125

Hi Stampers! 

Today I have a card for this weeks challenge over on the Freshly Made Sketches blog.

Here's this week's sketch.  It is pretty basic so I had to think outside of the box to decide on how I was going to embellish on it.

First I decided on which Designer Series Paper I wanted to use, and from that I chose my color combo. I went with something bright and cheery - the Quatrefancy DSP!

I thought that a little bit of Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo would be nice on a day we are expecting more STUPID SNOW!

To make the flower, I stamped the image from the Simple Stems stamp set three times - once in Island Indigo, once in Melon Mambo, and one final time in Daffodil Delight.  Then I cut out the different layers of flowers.  I used my two-way glue pen to add some Dazzling Diamonds around each flower edge for extra sparkle.  I layered them with Dimensionals and added a Basic Rhinestone to the center.  The final step was to stamp the sentiment from the Gifts of Kindness stamp set in Melon Mambo.
