Hello crafty friends! I have two birthday card ideas to share with you today using some fun products from the latest Sunny Studio Stamps release.

My first card is a one-layered, CAS card that features both the new Birthday Cats Stamp Set combined with the previously released Purrfect Birthday Set. I used a piece of Gina K. Designs Masking Magic Sheets to mask my images as I stamped so that it would appear that some of the images were behind one another, therefore giving my design the illusion of depth.
Once my images were all stamped and masked onto a 4.25″ x 5.5″ piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, I then lightly blended a background area with some Speckled Egg Distress Oxide Ink. I added a few white ink spatters using some diluted Copic Opaque White Paint, and then added a few dark “spatters” with some Copic Markers. Once my background was finished, I then removed my masking pieces and colored my scene with Copic Markers (colors listed below).
Copic Colors Used:
- Grays: W00, W1, W3, W5
- Brown Cat: E41, E42, E43, E44
- Greens: G00, G02, BG18
- Blues: BG70, BG72, BG75, BG78
- Shadows/Ground: T00, T2, T4
Once I was finished coloring, I added some white highlights with a Sakura Gelly Roll White Pen (size 10) and then stamped my sentiment from the Scrumptious Cupcakes Stamp Set in the upper righthand corner of my card with more Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
For my second card, I created a super simple birthday card featuring the gorgeous Scrumptious Cupcakes Layering Stamp Set. I chose three shades of pink and three shades of teal to create all of my cupcakes today. It doesn’t matter what colors you decide to use, but the layering images work best if you pick a light, medium, and a dark shade of whatever color you decide to use. For my cupcakes, I used (pinks) Pinkfresh Ballet Slippers, Sparkling Rose, and Bubble Gum Inks. For my teal colors, I used Altenew Mountain Mist, Volcano Lake, and Lagoon Inks. I also used Altenew Warm Sunshine for my yellow cake and Mocha for my chocolate cupcake.
For my card base, I used a piece of pink patterned paper from the Classic Sunburst Paper Pad and layered it with some teal and white card stock pieces. I stamped my sentiment from the Daffodil Dreams Stamp Set and then added my cupcakes with some 3D foam adhesive squares for a pop of dimension. Lastly, I added two strands of paper streamers using the new Crepe Paper Streamers Dies.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my cards today! Wishing you all a lovely day!
