Happy Happy Day and Birthday

I woke up this morning to a fabulous surprise. I was selected to be this week's featured stamper on SCS! I've had a great time looking at the cards people have made based on ones they found in my gallery.

I'm also thrilled to be one of this month's guest designers for the weekly clean and simple stamping challenge at SCS. Here's my sample card for this week's challenge, based on a sketch from DT member Kelly Landers. It's a birthday card since I needed a few for the upcoming week. It also fits this week's birthday challenge at a new clean and simple stamping blog (right up my alley), Cas-Tastic Challenges.

Instead of a stamped image, I used SU!'s die cut cupcake for the focal image. To add interest, I crimped the "chocolate" cupcake bottom and dot embossed the "strawberry" top.

The cupcake is attached to a lemon card base with foam tape. A strip of brightly striped October Afternoon designer paper runs across the card. I added a scalloped scallop edge border at the bottom of the patterned paper, covering the seam between the two papers with a lemon satin ribbon strip and bow. One of the sentiments from Papertrey Ink's Fillable Frames #1 set is stamped at the bottom of the card in soft pink ink. Too sweet!

Materials Used:
Fillable Frames #1 stamp set, Sweet Blush ink, Lemon Tart cardstock (Papertrey Ink); Pink Pirouette and Chocolate Chip cardstock, Big Bold Cupcake Sizzlit set (Stampin' Up!); designer paper (October Afternoon-Ducks in a Row line); scalloped scallop die (My Favorite Things); lemon satin ribbon (Michaels); crimper (Fiskars); Swiss Dot embossing folder (Cuttlebug); foam tape
