Bring on the Cake Card…


Hello, Stampers and Paper-Artists,


In my neck of the woods more snow is predicted and while I know it won’t last, just the thought of snow makes me cringe. Thank goodness, I’m busy working on my April Class, “Everything Springtime” which is lifting my spirits.


Today’s card was another that we made at my Stamp-A-Stack Saturday. I love pink and brown, and, pink and black together. I tried a little different card type and I’m pleased with the marker results. I’m so very proud of the ladies who come to my classes and their coloring results as well. Nice job ladies!

Bring on the Cake


To create this card:


Cut a 4-1/4″ x 9-3/4″ piece of Pink Pirouette Card Stock and score it at 5-1/2″”. This leaves you with a 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ square flap.


Place a 5″ X 5″  piece of Basic Black Card Stock in a Big Shot and with the Scallop Square Die cut out  a square.  In each scallop with a Paper Piercing Tool and Mat Pack pierce each scallop.


Place a 4″ x 4″ piece of First Edition Designer Series paper in the Big Shot and cut out a square using the Scallop Square Duo. On this square stamp, “Happy Birthday” from the Bring on the Cake Stamp Set in Basic Black Ink. Stamp it the bottom right hand corner so your flower will really be featured.

Bring on the Cake Flower Detail
On a scrap piece of Very Vanilla Card Stock stamp the large blossom from the Bloomin’ Beautiful Stamp Set in Stazon Black Ink, hand color the flower with Water-Color Pencils or Markers and carefully cut it out. Adhere it to the First Edition Scallop Square.

Bring on the Cake Detail
Layer the First Edition on the Basic Black Scallop Square. Adhere the scallop square on the flap of Pink Pirouette.  Once it’s adhered place a Basic Pearl in each corner.

Bring on the Cake Ribbon Detail
Along the bottom edge of the card, with a Slotted Ribbon Punch (retired), punch slots along the edge. Weave Black Gingham Ribbon (retired) through the slots and tie a bow in the middle.


Round off each bottom corner with a Corner Round Punch.

Pony Party for Samantha….

This is my niece Samantha who turned 9 on July 27th. 


Below is the card I made for Sami using the Pony Party Stamp Set.

I cut Stampin’ Up’s new In-Color Bermuda Bay  Card Stock 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″. I then scored the 8 1/2″ side in half.  I cut the Melon Mambo Card Stock, another In-Color, to 4 1/2″ x 3 1/4″. On a 4″ x 2 3/4″ piece of Whisper White Card Stock I stamped the pony from the Pony Part Stamp Set in Basic Black Ink. I masked the pony by stamping another pony image on a plain white sheet of paper, cut it out and overlayed it over the pony on the Whisper White Card Stock. I then stamped the wings in Basic Black Ink and lifted the mask. Using my  Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Pencils I colored in the pony and mane. I cut a 4″ x 2 3/4″  strip of Bermuda Bay Card Stock and scalloped along one the 4″ edge using the Scallop Edge Punch. I stamped “Celebrate” from the All Year Cheer I Stamp Set (retired) in Versa Mark, sprinkled White Embossing Powder over it and heated it using a Heat Gun. I put the card together by layering the Bermuda Bay scalloped strip to the top of the Whisper White Card Stock  and then the Whisper White onto the Melon Mambo piece of card stock. I wrapped a piece of Polka Melon Mambo Ribbon around the bottom then attached all to the Bermuda Bay. What girl, woman doesn’t like glitz? So, using my Two-Way Glue Stick and Dazzling Diamonds that’s exactly what I did-added glitz!
