Did Someone Say Cake?



Yes, someone did say cake! This week's Outlines Rubber Stamp Company's Monday Challenge is definitely for your sweet tooth. The challenge is to create something with a sweet treat as the theme. Make sure you play along for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate from Outlines!



My card this week features two stamps from Outlines Rubber Stamp Company ; Sketchy Cupcake H-1016 and the sentiment Birthdays are...D-1076. I stamped both the image and sentiment onto Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock using Marvy black dye ink. I colored the image with Copic markers, and then proceeded to cut the image panel into a rectangle, using the Out-of-the-Box technique so two of the balloons and the plate would emerge from the rectangle. Then for a fun sprinkles look on the cupcake, I applied Polar White Flower Soft using Flower Soft PVA glue.

Patterned paper from Doodlebug Design and Lasting Impressions were used to created the layers of this card, and all layers including the image and the sentiment were framed with black cardstock. I stamped the main image again, colored and cut out some of the confetti so that I could spill it over onto some of the other panels. A sheer white ribbon puts the finishing touches on this birthday card.
