Blogging Friends February Blog Hop - Saleabration

Hello and welcome to my blog and this month's Blogging Friends Blog Hop.  This month we are featuring projects made with items you can earn for FREE with qualifying orders during Sale-a-bration.  Saleabration is the biggest promotion of the year!  For my project today I used the Happy Birthday To You Stamp Set which is a free Saleabration item, and the matching Birthday Dies (which are only around until supplies last or until March 31, 2020).  Here's a look at my project.

Tips & Tricks: 

I started out my stamping the cake from the stamp set in tuxedo black ink onto a piece of Thick Whisper white cardstock, I also stamped it again so that I could cut out the flowers.  I used my stampin' blends to color the cake, stand, and flowers.  I used Petal Pink, Mint Macaron, So Saffron, and Calypso Coral.  I then cut the cake and the flowers out with the matching Birthday Dies.  Once I had that done.  I cut out a stitched oval from whisper white cardstock and a scallop oval from Calypso Coral Cardstock.  

Happy Birthday To You Card

I used the little sprinkle stamp in the set to stamp all over my Petal Pink card base (4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2) using coordinating ink.  I then cut a piece of Mint Macaron Designer Series paper from the Subtles collection (2 x 5 1/2) and attached it to a whisper white mat (2 1/4 x 5 1/2).  I then added a little of the Petal Pink Metallic Edged Ribbon to this piece before adding it to the card front.  I then placed the whisper white stitched oval to the scalloped oval with stampin' dimensionals.  I then added the cake to the ovals.  I used both the mini and regular size dimensionals to do this.  I then added the additional flowers that I cut out the flowers on to the cake with dimensionals.  This added more dimension to the card and additional details that gives the card a more impressive look than just with the stamped image.  

I then added a piece of whisper white to the inside of the card with the Happy Birthday Sentiment simply stamped in Petal Pink ink.  I also added the same sprinkle stamped image in petal pink ink along the left hand side of the inside whisper white piece.  To add a little sparkle to the card I added a few of the champagne basic rhinestones to the front of the card.
