I am so happy to announce that this week on the Sweet Stamps.com BLOG, the challenge is BIRTHDAY!!
I have to say, of all the cards I make, the ones I give away more than any are Birthday Cards.
Birthday’s can sneak up on you and it is a good idea to keep a couple of cards on hand for those last-minute well wishes.
The Sweet Stamps images and supplies I have used today are:
Here is my card using the above items, plus A WHOLE LOT MORE:)
I really like the font that Sweet Stamps.com uses for a lot of their sentiments.
It reminds me of the font that Mary Engelbreit uses.
There are many layers on this card and when you work with many layers, you have to also layer your dimensional foam/pop dots to keep the layering in perspective for each layer.
You can see that I used the CHERRIES stamp for the topper on the cupcake die.
I love the finished look of this stamp and thought it would look great as the focus and then use the cherry that comes with the Cupcake set as embellishments.
For my color palette, I kept all my colors in the COOL TONES.
I used stripes, dots, cherries and fun bright colors for this card. I stamped and hand cut the phrase for the main sentiment.
I then mounted the sentiment on a couple of LITTLE STACKER SCALLOPED OVALS.
I just adore this card and I hope you have enjoyed today’s creation.
