birthday cupcake

Happy Thursday!!!

Do you know what Thursday means? It is my challenge day over on the
365 Cards blog!! What do we have for you today? Well, we would love to see a Birthday card with no sentiment!!! What could you use? I used a birthday cake...now that's a slam dunk...but you could use candles...balloons...anything that is related to birthday goodness!

I always have fun with this Large Whimsical Outline Cake image by Savvy Stamps. It just screams to be paper pieced. I used the Basic Grey Cupcake line...such super fun patterns. I "had" to add some bling so I used the ultra-sweet heart shape twinkle stickers from A Muse...those puppies are tiny...I use my paper snips to line them up...it is not like I have "man hands" {ala Seinfield} but I seem to get clutzy when I use small embellies...maybe too much coffee? LOL

Show me what you got peeps! I cannot wait to see your most lovely creations!!!

stamps: savvy ink: memento tuxedo black paper: misc black, basic grey accessories: a muse bling, m's $ ribbon

This is a great card - I love this technique with this stamp. Thanks for your inspiration!

Becky Carafa said...

Love the piecing!!!! Usually when my cards are sentiment-less, it's because I didn't plan ahead and there's no room for one, lol! Great challenge.

Carla said...

Oh, too cute!!! I'm a klutz with the little things, too! And no, I don't have man hands!! Even though I did live only 50 miles from the sex change capital of the world for seven years!! (Trinidad, CO)

Amy, when I saw this on 365 (and I didn't even realize it was Thursday's challenge), I thought, this looks like Amy's stuff. And it was!!!! I really like how the red piece got out to the edge, but not all the way. Makes the card look sophisticated. Love what you did with the cake too.

Lauren said...
