Stamp Insanity Birthday!

Thursday, September 2, 2010

I'm very proud to a guest designer for Stamp Insanity Stamps this month. It also happens to be the 1st birthday for Stamp Insanity! This is a new image created especially to celebrate the birthday and I think it's great! Also to celebrate there is a SALE going on. From September 2nd through September 8th at midnight, everything is a whopping 50% off!! You just use code BDAY2010 to get your discount - you don't want to miss this sale. Head over to the SI store HERE to do some shopping.

I colored the image with Copics. The DP is MME La Paperie and the cardstock is Bazzill and I coated the edges with black Stickles. Pink rhinestones are from KaiserCraft and I made the flower with blossom Nestabilities and a pearl brad from Hobby House. The top of her dress got a coating of Martha Stewart tourmaline glitter.

What's a birthday without cake, right?!

I made this "cake" using three graduated boxes and trim I cut using a Stampin' Up! border punch. The sentiment is a new one created for the birthday celebration. The image on top is the same as the one on my card, I just sized it way down so it would fit on the top of the cake (wasn't much fun to color that small!). The trim is Papertrey Ink's Sweet Blush and the boxes were created using the Back to Basics template.

Here's a close-up of the cake topper.
