Amazing Life Happy Birthday Cards

You didn't think that you were going to need the Amazing Life stamp set, but you just might after these adorable birthday cards!  I received this set at On Stage and I wasn't really excited about it…that is until I recently found a super-cute card by Tami Hewlett. I couldn't wait to create a similar card using that tiny cake and those lovely flowers!

Background Basics—I started this card with a 4-1/4" x 1-1/4" strip of the black & white checked pattern of Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper adhered to a Highland Heather card base.  You can still select this DSP as a FREE selection with your $50 order during Sale-a-Bration.  

Next, I embossed a 3-1/2" x 4-3/4" piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Scattered Sequins Dynamic Texture Impressions folder and mounted to the front with SNAIL adhesive.

Cool Cake—I stamped the cake from Amazing Life in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a Whisper White layer die-cut with the Rectangle Stitched Framelits (1-13/16" wide).  I colored in the cake with Stampin' Blends Markers, using the Dark Highland Heather under the swirls, the Light Highland Heather on the swirls and the Light Balmy Blue on the top of each layer.  I blended the colors into white using the Color Lifter Marker.  The candle was colored in Balmy Blue and Daffodil Delight.

Layered Rectangles—I stamped the Amazing Life corner flourish in Highland Heather ink at the top of the rectangle, then popped it up onto the next largest Rectangle Stitched Framelits die-cut in Balmy Blue (2-1/4" wide) with Dimensionals.

Sweet Sentiment—I stamped the Amazing Life birthday sentiment in VersaMark Ink onto a 2" x 3/8" strip of Basic Black cardstock, then embossed it with White Embossing Powder.  To emboss, simply sprinkle the powder onto the image stamped in VersaMark, tap off the excess and heat with a Heat Tool until glossy and smooth.  The sentiment strip was fishtail cut with Paper Snips and adhered to the rectangle with SNAIL adhesive.

TIP: Before embossing, I like to wipe my cardstock with an Embossing Buddy to eliminate any static and finger oils that may cause the powder to stick in places I don't want it to. 

Blended Blooms—I stamped three of the Amazing Life flower images onto Whisper White with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored those in with Stampin' Blends Markers.  I started by adding Light Highland Heather to the center of the flower, then I added Light Balmy Blue around it, then I blended out the color to the edges of the petals with the Color Lifter.  The leaves are blended in Mint Macaron.  I hand-cut the flowers with super-sharp Paper Snips and attached them around the frame with Glue Dots.

Finishing Touches—I added some Wink of Stella glimmer to the flowers and topped them with a Rhinestone Jewel. I also added Wink of Stella to the top of each layer of cake.

Two Cool—For my second version, I started with a Bermuda Bay card base and the same Botanical Butterflies DSP.  I forgot to stamp my corner design in Pool Party on the top…oops!

Cake Colors—This cake was colored in Bermuda Bay, Balmy Blue and Highland Heather Stampin' Blends.  I didn't use a Color Lifter on the cake this time.

Blended Blooms—The flowers were colored with Bermuda Bay on the inside, followed by Balmy Blue and the Color Lifter.  The leaves were colored with Old Olive Stampin' Blends.
