Another birthday card

Another lady in my Stamper's 6 group has a birthday this month - Bev has just handed in loads of work for her degree course so she can celebrate her birthday guilt-free today. Congratulations on your 30th birthday Bev, hope you're enjoying the freedom from studying!

The cupcake has been paper-pieced with 2 different Sweet Always designer papers and the sprinkles have been highlighted using a white gel pen. The candle is cut from pink cardstock and the flame coloured using a yellow marker. The sentiment has been computer-generated as I don't have any number stamps (something else to add to the never-decreasing wishlist!) I HAD to use my new oval punches on the card as I've been waiting for them for ages - they have been so popular that Stampin' Up! completely sold out of them! They are back in stock so order yours now.

Products used (Stampin' Up! unless stated otherwise):
  • Stamps - Crazy for Cupcakes
  • Ink - Basic Black, Barely Banana
  • Cardstock - Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink
  • Other - Sweet Always designer paper, Scallop Oval punch, Large Oval punch, white gel pen, nestabilities (non-SU), Chocolate Chip double-stitched grosgrain ribbon, dimensionals.

Pink Petals Mojo

Here's a birthday card I made for a lady who comes to the card club I run. I don't think she reads my blog, but just in case - Happy Birthday Jan! It's another Mojo sketch, link here. I knew which set I wanted to use but it took quite a bit of head-scratching and re-arranging before I came up with something I liked!

The photo isn't brilliant, so I'll explain what I've used. Three different papers from the Tea Party collection have been matted onto white cardstock, the mat for the left hand panel has a scallop edge. The saffron striped grosgrain ribbon runs under a panel of pink textured cardstock before being tied in a knot. The flowers have been stamped onto 2 different pink papers and cut out, then stuck to green cardstock sepals and added to the white square along with a leaf (one flower is popped up on dimensionals). I didn't add a sentiment, but I think a small stamped tag hanging from the ribbon knot would look nice.

Products used (all Stampin' Up! ):
  • Stamps - Playful Petals
  • Ink - Black Stazon
  • Cardstock - Whisper White, So Saffron, Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink textured
  • Other - Tea Party designer paper, So Saffron 1/2" striped grosgrain ribbon, Scallop Edge punch, dimensionals.
