OCC Birthday

Welcome to the weekend! Woohooo! It's Saturday morning, and that means it's time for another challenge over at Our Creative Corner. Be sure to check out the OCC Blog for all the challenge details and to see the fabulous cards all the OCC girls made this week. I've had so much fun playing along as their Guest Designer this month. What a fun experience!

This week, Dawn challenged us to create a birthday card. And since The Cat's Pajamas just released two oh-so-marvelous birthday sets yesterday, I knew exactly what stamps I wanted to use! Aren't these little penguins adorable? Cupcakes, streamers, penguins in party hats, a magic wand... what more could you ask for in a stamp set? Alma has totally captured pure birthday delight with this release! All of the stamps on this card are available in the clearly swanky Smells Like Cake set, or individually as wood mounted rubber stamps.

I stamped the Lighting the Cupcake stamp with Adirondack Pitch Black and then colored with Copic markers. Next I stamped the Birthday Scrawl sentiment and used a corner rounder for the edges, to make it a little tab below the image. Next I cut the mats and the strip of patterned paper from papers in the BasicGrey Eva collection. Next I stamped the Streamers stamp down the side of the card base and colored with Copic markers. The scallop border is made with the Fiskars threading water border punch and I died some cheap white satin ribbon from Michael's $1 bin with a Copic marker to match. I finished off with some Angels Wings Shimmerz and some Crystal Effects on the image, and then three tiny clear rhinestones below the sentiment.
