Good Monday Morning! I had a great Saturday stamping with all my Pinkstampagne peeps in class. We laughed, chatted, got all caught up and of course stamped! I was even able to finish my kits for this month. Yay! I’m shooting to get them in the mail tomorrow. Woohoo! I’m also going to enjoy this weeks weather (low 80’s), because we are heading for a heat wave starting this coming weekend (upper 90’s to low 100’s). Yikes! Thankfully we have central air and I’ll be able to stay inside and stamp without feeling guilty. Lol!
Today’s card is the first from my June class. I amazed myself and even got pics taken this weekend! It features the Amazing Birthday stamp set and Birthday Bash Specialty Designer Series Paper (just retired). I’m going to miss this paper, I was really having fun with it.
CARD BASE: Starts with Whisper White, layered with Basic Black and Bermuda Bay Diagonal Stripes from the Birthday Bash Specialty Designer Series Paper pack. TIP: I like how adding the Basic Black layer makes a nice 1/16″ frame for the printed paper, giving it a polished look
FOCAL POINT: Well………it’s the birthday cakes of course. Lol! The cakes were heat embossed in black onto Whisper White cardstock with VersaMark ink. I also opted to color the middle layer of the cake images with Bermuda Bay ink. I felt it helped to draw your eye and tie them together with the Birthday Bash DSP paper. TIP: For added dimension two of the cake circles were popped with dimensionals and two were glued flat.
SENTIMENT: Is the Happy, Happy, Happy, Happy, Birthday to You! This was also heat embossed in black onto Whisper White cardstock with VersaMark ink. Each “Happy” block and the “Birthday To You!” was cut out and popped with dimensionals for added dimension. The “Birthday To You!” was backed with a narrow layer of Basic Black cardstock to frame it as well.
Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you have a great Monday and rest of your week! I also hope you enjoyed today’s pretty quick and easy card and look forward to hearing your comments. I also want to give Linda Callahan and shout out for her wonderful design that I borrowed and “Carol’d it up” a bit.
