29 again? by Bonnie

Hello and welcome. 

I'm excited to share with you my creations as a Guest Designer for Gerda Steiner Designs.  Today I'm sharing a card made using the new Cupcake Mice stamp set.  Now, I'm always looking for cute, or snarky, images for birthday cards and this set has both!  I'm in love!

I started out by dry embossing a turquoise card using my Big Shot and my Cuttlebug birthday words embossing folder before stippling Tim Holtz broken china distress ink over the raised images then setting aside.  My images/saying were then stamped onto Hammermill white card stock scraps before coloring using my Copic markers and a white gel pen for the cupcake frosting. 

Once the coloring was finished, I lightly stippled leftover broken china distress ink around the edges of my mouse before layering and adding some black mini brads. 

I then stamped the saying again onto another piece of scrap card stock then highlighted it with a Castle Arts black glitter gel pen before stippling more broken china ink, layering, adding more brads. 

Once my saying was popped up on my image panel, I added some silver/white bakers twine along the edge of the card base.  The final touches were some Picket Fence Studios turquoise sequins on the cupcake and next to my main image.


Here's the progression of my card:
