Accessories: White Lustre Card; Kaisercraft DP - Sea Breeze
I got the idea for this card from Sarah's flower card which she shared yesterday; it reminded me of the Triple Stamping technique. I cut two panels of white card and two panels of design paper each slightly larger then the white card. I used temporary adhesive to layer the white card on top of each other and then randomly stamped some cupcakes over the background. I filled in the gaps with the little star confetti stamp in several colours. Next I layered the stamped card on the design paper and attached both to the front of the card. I finished with a bold birthday greeting in the centre of the card. I used the colours from this week's Colour Throwdown - CTD#387 for the card. On the inside I cut a mat layer of the design paper and on the white panel I stamped another cupcake and a greeting.
My next card features Fun Flowers (which I was supposed to showcase yesterday, but didn't get chance to make a card). This one is quite clean and simple and uses the colours from this week's Colour Q challenge - cQc#336:
Stamps: Uniko - Fun Flowers, All Occasion Sentiments #6
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Rose Red, Pumpkin Pie, Lucky Limeade; Versafine - Onyx Black; Memento - Tuxedo Black
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SUDP - Pumpkin Pie; Copics; Wink of Stella - Clear, Pink, Orange
This is a really fun set where you can build up flowers using different layers. I started by stamping three larger flowers and keeping them mostly white. I stamped the word thanks on white card, coloured it with Copic markers, cut it out and added clear Wink of Stella to each letter for some sparkle. At this point I added the tiny flowers in black and coloured them with orange and pink Wink of Stella brushes. This card really shimmers. On the inside I is a mat layer of pumpkin pie design paper and on the white card I added another flower.
I'm also submitting this card to AAA Cards - AAA#62 where the theme is Anything Goes, but it must be CAS.

Finally, here's a look at the sets available today:
First up is Celebrate with Cake - such a versatile set with open and solid stamps for the cupcake case and frosting, so easy to line up too. The little confetti stamps are just fab.
Second is Fun Flowers - another really versatile set - you can build all kinds of flowers with these images. You can colour them, paint them or stamp on design paper - the possibilities are endless.
That's all for now. Thanks so much for stopping by - I really do appreciate it. See you soon.
