The Build a Birthday stamp set makes a great cake but take a look at some of the other fun things you can do with it.  If you didn’t see the cake card you can view it here.

This idea I cased from a good friend Monika Davis.  We have a group of friends from around the country that meet for dinner at convention the first night and we swap cards…of course. 🙂

  • The bright colors and fun dots make you feel like celebrating.  They were created with sponge daubers and the eraser side of a pencil.  Monika said she used a Q-tip for the smaller circles but I liked the uniformity of the pencil erasers. 
  • The colors are Bermuda Bay, Cucumber Crush, Crushed Curry and Watermelon Wonder.
  • The front of the card base is cut 3/4″ shorter so the fun Cherry On Top Washi Tape on the inside also shows on the outside.
  • Finishing touch some Black Baker’s Twine.  You all know how I love baker’s twine!  Cant beat the price!

 I also received this card as a swap at convention too.  I changed up the banner and the layering a bit but the idea of using the candle flame as a bird is something I may have never of thought of. 🙂  They sort of look like alien birds but cute none the less.

  • The ground is stamped with a stamp from the Sheltering Tree stamp set in Tip Top Taupe and Mint Macaroon.
  • The flame was turned on it side and stamped in the Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush ink.
  • The eyes, beak and legs were drawn in free hand with Stampin’ Write Markers.  Make sure you use a light stoke on the legs.

I’m sure you have some thoughts about these birds. (Heehee)  Leave me a comment and tell me what you think.  Supplies can be found at the bottom of the page for both projects.
