Watercolour Birthday Cake Card Duo

Today I’m sharing another birthday card duo, this time featuring the Piece of Cake stamp set and matching Cake Builder Punch.  I’ve used Rococo Rose for one card and Seaside Spray for the other and kept them simple by using no embellishments.

Rococo Rose Watercolour Cake Card

I used the Fluid 100 watercolour paper for the background and used the Aqua Painter to create a wash of colour over the backgorund. I then used the finger flick technique to add the flecked ink across the card to add some more detail. I then stamped the Happy Birthday from the stamp set all over randomly in Rococo Rose.

For the centre of the card I stamped dotty/stripy birthday cake in Tuxedo Memento Ink and then coloured with Stampin’ Blends beforing punching out. I also punch out to cake stands in Silver Foil. I then cut a white oval matt and stamped the little lollipops at the top. I adhered the white oval onto a Silver Foil oval and then attached to my card bases.

As a finishing touch added the cakes to the centre of the ovals using Stampin’ Dimensionals to give some dimension and interest to the card.

Which is your favourite the pink or blue version?

Dino Birthday Card

Just a quick post today as I’m snowed under with Christmas wrapping. This is another birthday card made with the Dinoroar suite which has been one of my favourites for childrens cards.  These dinosaurs were cut straight from the Dinoroar DSP  with the Dino Dies, which makes putting a card together super quick.

I’ve added a little shimmer to this card with the Old Olive/Pretty Peacock Reversable Ribbon  and the greeting comes from the Perennial Birthday stamp set.

I think this card would be suitable for boys or girls because of the mix of colours and anyway who doesn’t love a cute dinosaur!

Ice Skater Birthday Card

The Free Skate Bundel and stamp set may have sold out here in Europe but as the dies are still available (as I write this) I thought I’d share this birthday card I made using them and the Born to Shine stamp set which features ballerina images.

This card is larger than my usual card bases so I could fit the boots and the two ballerina images. I cut a sheet of A4 to 18cm x 21cm  scored in half at 10.5cm. The Rococo Rose layer is 17.5cm x 10cm and the Whisper White layer I stamped on measures 17cm x 9.5cm.

The two ballerina’s were stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and then colured with Rococo Rose and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends. I then added the starry background in Petal Pink.

The skate was made from a Rococo Rose detailed outline and a Sparkle Glimmer paper solid layer which were glued together with Liquid Glue.

I adhered the Skate onto a background of Layered Ovals and then added some Rococo Rose laces and a Rhinestone to finish the card.

I’ve left a greeting off this card as I feel its finished as it is, plus there’s plenty of room inside to say exactly what you want.

Happy Birthday Dad Card

Yesterday it was my dad’s birthday so I thought I’d share the card I made him with you. He’s a farmer so very rarely has time to rest so is unlikely to have spent his birthday like this. This image from A Good Man does remind me of how he used to look on beach holidays from when I was younger so hopefully he’ll remember this and enjoy his card too.

I coloured the image in Stampin’ Blends which are definitley one of my favourite Stampin’ Up! products as they make colouring a joy. The top line of the greeting comes from the same A Good Man set and the Happy Birthday comes from Perennial Birthday stamp set.

I finished the card off with three strips of the Blueberry Bushell Ribbon which I think highlights the stripes in the Come Sail Away Designer Paper. I also added some Blueberry Bushell Rhinnestones from the Noble Peacock collection.

Dino Diecuts Card

The one thing I’ve always loved about Stampin’ Up! is the coordination between products. Most of the time this has been matching colours between cardstock and ink. Since the introduction of pruduct suite where we’ve had stamps, die sets ans even dsp that coordinated the project possibilities are endless and its actually hard to make a bad card.

Some of my favourite coordinating products from this years annual catalogue are products from the Dino Days suite, I love how the die set matches the stamps and even one of patterns on the dsp produces detailed die cut dinosaurs in seconds.

This means when you’ve realised your out of birthday cards for the kids party starting in an hour you dont need to rush to the shops. Just pull out a die cutting machine, the Dino dies and the Dinoroar paper and you can make this card in less than ten minutes. Meaning you’ll have one happy birthday boy and won’t be late to the party.

Christmas Rose Birthday Card Duo

Today I’m sharing these simple cards which have helped bump up my birthday card stash. They took just ten minutes to make each and you could make them in any colour.

Christmas Rose Blueberry Bushell Birthday Card

I chose to use Blueberrry Bushell and Lovely Lipstick for these cards but you could use any colour you like.

To add a little interest I’ve added a strip of the 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon to each card. The greeting comes from the Seaside Notions stamp set and is popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals.
