This is a great easy colouring technique that I really do not use enough.
My first card I used the fun Happy Cake Day Stamp & Thin cuts set – it is like this stamp set is designed for this technique. I did though cut the cake stand in Gold Foil & I added some white Gel details to one of the cake layers.
I choose to use the Happy Birthday Balloons from the Festive Borders to be in the centre of my cake layers & to just use the inner part of the Slimline Shaker Window Thin Cuts using the one of the papers from the Love Story Paper (Black) collection. I added some card stock strip in the background that is the same colours as my cake layers & some glitter to the candle flame.
My next card I used the flowers & leaves from the As You Grow stamp & Thin Cut set.
I added some TriBlend™ Markers for extra detail on both the flowers & leaves. I used the Love Story Paper (Black) collection again for this card & added some shimmer trim & sponged on Mermaid Lagoon using what was o my sponge without re-inking it. Then on the side I I added some silver thread & clustered my flowers & leaves with some 3D foam tape & finished it off with a sentiment from the For All Occasions set. I loved how this turned out.
I had fun creating this card and loved how it all came together & I’d love for you to leave a comment before you head on over to Melissa Robinson to get more Stamping on Cardstock ideas.
