Icecream and cupcakes …

Do you ever have a favourite stamp set that you absolutely fall in love with, use it lots and lots, but then put it to one side and neglect it for ages?  I came across a couple of sets that I’d not inked up for a while – they are ones that I just love too –  so when I needed a card for my sister-in-law’s birthday, I got out my stamps, and their matching punches, and made this card for her …

Birthdays, cakes and pretty pink bows …

Anna's birthday card

I used patio party designer series paper for the background, with its scrummy cakes and pretty colours, and made the sentiment, from the create a cupcake stamp set, the focal image, stamped onto whisper white cardstock cut out with the apothecary accents framelits die.  I did a little bit of stamping on the inside too, with a matching strip of dsp …

The pretty, two-tone, pink pirouette ribbon, available in the spring/summer catalogue, is so soft and lovely, and it ties beautifully into a double bow.  It was definitely the star of the show, adhered to the card with mini glue dots.
