I love the sketches that Stamping 411 offer – here is this weeks sketch #159.

I was wanting to use one of the stamp sets that is in this month’s Two-Step stamp promotional sale with Stampin’ Up!

I actually haven’t used my Big Bold Birthday stamp set for a  while, so it was nice to play again with it.  This set will be retiring at the end of August so now is the time to purchase while there is an additional 20% off on the sale!  (See 3rd July posting for list of sale stamps)

I have made  a couple of different colour variations but this is my pink one.  I have sponged the Pink Piroutte before attaching to the Soft Suede base card.  Then run the Melon Mambo strip through the big shot with embossing folder to give some texture.

I pieced together the cake and then applied Dazzling Diamonds to the cake frosting and some Crystal Effects to the flame on the candle, again to add more texture.  I have then layered the Whisper White onto Melon Mambo onto Soft Suede then attached to the card with dimensionals.  The sentiment has been attached with dimensionals as well, so this card is really ‘layered’!  Unfortunately the punch isn’t available in Australia yet.

Card: Soft Suede, Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo, Whisper White

Ink: Melon Mambo, Soft Suede

Other: Dazzling Diamonds (glitter), Crystal Effects, Dimensionals, Swiss Dots embossing folder (non SU)

Until later, happy stampin’
