Monday Montage 73
July 10, 2016
Welcome to the Monday Montage blog hop! Every other Monday, my friends and I share inspiring projects. Be sure to visit all the stops....you don't want to miss anything!
I had been doing such a good job on sending out birthday cards this year, but the last month has really gotten away from me. It looks like I'll need to whip up some belated birthday cards and the Sweet Cupcake stamp set has come to my rescue.
My first card is a fun shaker made with the Sliding Star Framelits and a few embellishments from the June 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit (washi tape & sequins). I started with a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Thick Whisper White card stock and die-cut the Circle Slider mechanism. When you die-cut the Circle Slider mechanism, you get 3 pieces: a large open circle, a "ring", and a smaller inside circle. I placed a 4" x 4" window sheet over the opening of the large circle. The smaller circle is adhered onto the front of the card with dimensionals. I created a "tunnel" for the sequins with the foam adhesive strips. To cover the strips, I added a 3-3/4" x 3-3/4" piece of the gold foil paper from the Pop of Pink Designer Series Paper.
This stamp set requires 3 individual stamps to create the final image. The stamps are numbered on the sheet included with the stamp set. For the cupcake bottom, I stamped as follows: (3) Crumb Cake stamped off, (2) Crumb Cake, and (1) Crumb Cake. For the top, I stamped (3) Pink Pirouette, (2) Flirty Flamingo stamped off, and (1) Flirty Flamingo stamped off. The sprinkles are Flirty Flamingo and Mint Macaron.
I die-cut the "sweet" from the Cupcake Cutout Framelits in Whisper White and Flirty Flamingo card stocks. Layering the two of them together gives it a drop shadow effect. The sentiments were stamped in Flirty Flamingo and Mint Macaron inks. I added a small heart from the IN Color Enamel Shapes to the "happy belated birthday" circle that had been punched with the 1-1/2" circle punch. You'll find a complete list of supplies at the end of this post.
DID I MENTION HOW MUCH I HATE MISSING SOMEONE'S BIRTHDAY?
It kinda stinks!
I just couldn't look at the Sweet Cupcake stamp set and not see the fresh, hot, steaming pile of poo. With a little help from the Jar of Love (flies) and Here for You (sentiment) stamp sets, I was able to make this happen.
I think this card is fairly self-explanatory, but in case you were wondering.....varying shades of Soft Suede seem to be the most normal & realistic color combination I found. You're welcome!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
