Bring on the Cake

And one for the Boys….

I’m back today sharing the set of cards for my August Stamp-A-Stacks that are more suitable for the men in our lives.

That’s not to say they aren’t suitable for the ladies but they definitely don’t say ‘girls’ like the Flower Shop set I showed you yesterday.

For these cards I’ve used the new ‘Gorgeous Grunge’ & ‘Hello, Lovely’ Stamp sets along with ‘Bring On The Cake’ stamp set which has carried over.

The Gorgeous Grunge stamp set made these cards quite quick to whip up.

A little bit of added ribbon or twine, a punch or two and your done.

Supplies: (All Stampin’ Up!)
Stamps: Gorgeous Grunge, Hello, Lovely, Bring on the Cake
Card: Midnight Muse, Pool Party, Very Vanilla
Ink: Midnight Muse, Pool Party, Cherry Cobbler
Accessories: Decorative Label & Extra Large Oval Punches, Midnight Muse 3/8” Stitched Satin Ribbon, Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine, Mini Glue Dots, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Snail Adhesive.

Happy 80th


My mum asked me to make an 80th Birthday Card for her as her Aunt is celebrating her birthday this weekend.

Mum selected Cherry Cobbler as the colour and the rest was up to me.

This is what I came up with.

The Memorable Moments stamp set is just perfect for these special occasions and Everything Eleanor just added that extra touch.

Here’s another angle to show the dimension.

The Cherry Cobbler Labels Collection frame is mounted using Stampin’ Dimensionals and so are all the Everything Eleanor flowers and I’ve also added a pearl to the smaller flower.

I was originally thinking of adding tiny pearls to the larger flower but there is just too many spots on the stamen so it looked overcrowded.

I’ve also decorated the inside of the card.

The flower image is adhered using mini glue dots just to give it a little dimension but still allowing the card to close flat.

My Mother & Step Father both loved it so here’s hoping Aunty Mary does too.

Inkspirational Challenge WK4

It’s time for another Inkspirational Challenge and this week is a Sketch Inkspiration.



I have created a ‘Birthday Card’ this week using the sketch as the centre piece on my card.


I chose to use some Twitterpatted DSP for my card (seeing I have so much of it). The base card and circle layer are using Island Indigo cardstock to coordinate with the DSP. The ‘Birthday Wishes’ sentiment is stamped in Riding Hood Red and I have daubered the edges of the Whisper White cardstock in Baja Breeze ink. I’ve added some Pearls in the corners of the card and the ribbon tag for that extra touch.

For the inside of the card I have daubered the edges of some Whisper White card using Baja Breeze ink and stamped another sentiment using Riding Hood Red ink.

This is a very simple, quick card and a great way to use up some excess DSP.

Supplies: All Stampin’ Up! unless specified otherwise.
Stamp sets: Bring on the Cake
Card: Island Indigo, Whisper White, Twitterpatted
Ink: Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red
Accessories: 3” & 3 1/2” Circle Dies, Big Shot, Basic Jewels – Pearls, dauber, stampin’ dimensionals.
