Eat Cake!

Good morning friends! I hope you are enjoying a beautiful summer day! I am feeling good, new haircut...doesn't that always make you feel better! Now if I could just take this hair dresser home with me to Seattle!!

Today I want to share some new fun from the New Stampin' Up! catalog! I just got my new goodies from the UPS man and I'm so excited! This card is showing the fun birthday greetings of the Everything Nice stamp set. I think this set is a super fun one! Wedding, baby and birthday greetings can be found in this versatile set! My card started with the sentiment. I used my In Color markers(YEA Stampin' Up!!), to color the seperate lines of the stamp...a great way to use markers! I used Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry and Soft Suede. After coloring the stamp, I gave it a little "huff" of air to get the maker ink moist, and stamped it on whisper white cardstock. I layered my sentiment on some melon mambo cardstock and set it aside to work on the base of the card.

I started with a Soft Suede card. I layered a sweet layer of Melon Mambo dsp, and then a little strip of Crushed Curry dsp. Do you know how much I LOVE these new In Colors?! I used my Soft Suede ribbon--but didn't want to have polka dots--just a tad too busy, so I used the back side of my ribbon and there you have it, soft suede grosgrain with no polka dots! I ran a small strip of sticky strip down my card and then laid the ribbon on top of it, making pleats as I went down the card. I decided to use a little mini glue dot to hold the "ruffles" down, and was reminded how much I LOVE mini glue dots!

For the finishing touch, I added my sentiment block to my card with dimensionals. Super quick and easy with great products!

Have a great day! Enjoy the sunshine in your part of the world! Thanks so much for stopping by!! Stay tuned for some fun LAD celebrations! The summer release (which is FANTASTIC) is July 15th and they are turning 3 years old! Check out the fun here! See you soon!
