Make a Wish - Cupcake Birthday

This card is very easy to make. The hardest part is deciding which color to make the frosting. Doesn't it look real??




I wanted to use a patterned paper that I already owned, so I skimmed through my Petal Garden Designer Paper pack and chose one that looked birthday-like. There is actually a lot of choices in that pack that can be used for a birthday card. 

Once I had decided which paper I would used helped me to make the decision to use Rich Razzleberry as the base color for the card. I finished off the frosting with a bit of Wink of Stella to add some sparkle. I think you can see the sparkle in this photo...




I hope you like this card. Please leave me a comment below to let me know, or just to say Hi!

Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day, and Happy Stampin!

Happy Birthday Butterfly

Coloring and fussy cutting... not my favorite of the stamp techniques that are available for card-making. However, with the Beautiful Day stamp set and the Stampin' Blends alcohol markers, coloring on vellum is so easy!! Also, since this stamp outline is so thick, it's made perfect for fussy-cutting.
What is fussy-cutting you ask? It's when you cut out an image the old-fashioned way... with a pair of scissors.




I first stamped the image with Versamark and then heat embossed it using copper embossing powder. I then turned it over and colored in the image on the back side using the Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. I did this first, and then put it aside to allow for drying.

I then assembled the rest of the card before fussy-cutting out the butterfly. Doesn't it look like stained glass?

I hope you like this card. Please leave a comment below to let me know, or just to say "hi!"

Celebrate in Style

I notice that a lot of people in different Facebook stamp groups are always looking for masculine cards. Personally I find that masculine cards are difficult to come by, and for whatever reason, difficult to design. 
Stampin' Up! has come out with the True Gentleman Suite, and it's beautiful (sorry, very manly!). You can make any type of masculine card with this suite, including the Truly Tailored stamp set and Designer Paper.
