Spellbinders & Simon Hurley Birthday Basics Card

 Hey crafty friends!  I'm thrilled to be sharing a new release by Simon Hurley for Spellbinders that's part of the January Stamps & Dies Collection!  Not only is there this fun Birthday Basics stamp set and dies, but many other types of sets!

I began my card by stamping the "confetti strip" stamp from the Birthday Basics stamp set with three pink shades of ink along the bottom of my A2 card base.  (The ink colors are in the supply list below.)  I used sponge daubers to add each shade of pink ink to the stamp.  Having the stamp in my MISTI let me repeat each color until I liked the results.  Then I used a t-square ruler and a Copic Multiliner to draw a line across the top.  I have all of the ink colors in the supply list below.

Next I stamped out the cake and flower image with a black Copic safe ink.  Then I colored it with some pink, green, and yellow Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating dies.

Before I added anything to the card front, I used two of the included sentiments in the set and the flower stamp to stylize the inside of the card.  I used the same Copic markers to color up the flowers and leaves.

I added foam tape to the back of the cake to pop it up on my card.  I also used a thin foam square to add the flower to the cake.

Then I placed the card into my MISTI and stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx black ink.  This is one of six awesome sentiments included in the set!

A few pink rhinestones on the cake stand add a bit of sparkle!

Thanks so very much for stopping by!  Be sure to check out the rest of the release over at Spellbinders!
