Birthday Bakery

Now that I’ve given my friend her birthday card I can post it.  I CASED this card from Diana Gibbs.  She has a wonderful video tutorial on her blog.  I’ve been wanting to use the Birthday Bakery stamp set and this was the perfect opportunity.  This stamp set is so cute and is a hostess level 1 stamp set that can be earned with a $150 workshop.  If you’d like to earn this stamp set call me to book your workshop.

I was trying to use colors that would look like a little shop in Paris.  The photo was difficult to photograph but I also used Dazzling Diamonds and Moonlighting Smooch on the baked goods which worked perfectly for this card.   I used a blender pen and ink pads to water color the images.  If you haven’t tried  water coloring it’s a lot of fun and it takes me back to my childhood.  So relaxing.  It’s like I always say to my friends that think they are ordering way too much Stampin’ up products – “It’s cheaper than therapy.  You need this for your mental health”.  LOL  Here’s my card.
