Greetings my stamping friends. I left my house for the first time in about 10 days to receive my Gamma Globulin infusion (human blood proteins so my immune system can generate antibodies) for my auto-immune disease. As an “at risk” person, it was a bit frightening, but I was relieved to see that there was a nurse in the entrance to the infusion center who was checking people’s temperature and checking names off a list to protect everyone. I typically feel very tired for several days after, but I still plan on sharing projects with you daily.
Today’s project (which I actually made last night) uses my second favorite stamp set offered as a FREE item during Sale-A-Bration (Level 1) — Happy Birthday to You. I opted to try to do a “simple stamping” project which should be quick and easy if you want to try to make one for yourself.
I stamped the cake image on a piece of whisper white cardstock that measures 3.25″ x 4.00″ in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored the stamped image with my very handy Stampin’ Blends® (Petal Pink on the frosting, Flirty Flamingo on the flowers, Granny Apple Green on the leaves, Daffodil Delight on the flower stamens and Smoky Slate on the cake stand. I also added Wink of Stella to the cake stand to give it some shimmer. Lastly, I stamped the Happy Birthday greeting in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I attached the stamped piece to the card base using dimensionals. (NOTE: I used the RETIRED Share What You Love Artisan Pearls to add some glitz. If you do not have these in your stash of crafting supplies, you can color the Basic Pearls [#144219 $5.00] with any of your Stampin’ Blends®.)
