Happy Birthday Card Ideas

Hi everyone,

If you have been following my instagram, you probably would have seen that short video of my Mama Elephant loot a few days ago.

I couldn’t wait to get my hands to stamp all these new images as they are absolutely versatile in creating different images for different occasions.

Today, I am going to use two stamp sets, Carnival Cupcakes and a complimentary set, Carnival toppers to get some happy birthday card ideas going.

Here is my creation to share with you,

Here are the steps I took and all stamping is with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

  1. Stamp the ribbon and stamp another on post-it to mask the stamped image (Carnival Toppers set).
  2. Stamp cupcake holder (Carnival Cupcakes set).
  3. Stamp cupcake toppings (Carnival Cupcakes set).
  4. Stamp candle (Carnival Toppers set).
  5. Using sentiment from Carnival Toppers set, I split the stamping of the whole sentiment by masking part of it while stamping.
  6. Color image with Copic markers
  7. Add Zig’s Wink of Stella - Red to part of the ribbon and dot a little on the fire.
  8. Add Glossy Accent to the small cherries on the cupcake.

For the background, it is the same technique I used for this card.  However, you will notice a little difference in the effect due to the different card base used.

For the earlier card I made, I used Linen Textured card base.  For this, it is Hammered Textured.

This is my Day 16 Coloring Challenge hosted by Kathy from The Daily Marker.

I hope you like this design. Do drop me comments on your thoughts too, I would love to hear from you.
