Welcome to the first Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop for 2020! Our theme is Let's Sale-A-Brate! I hope you have are enjoying the Sale-A-Bration offerings. On this blog hop you will find even more ideas on ways to use the Sale-A-Bration choices.
I chose to feature the Happy Birthday to You stamp set for my blog hop project.
I chose to focus on the beautiful flowers that adorn the cake. I think they are so pretty and deserved to be in the spotlight. The stamp was inked in VersaMark, stamped on Shimmery White CS and embossed with White embossing powder. The flowers were colored using an Aqua Painter and Flirty Flamingo, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, and Pool Party ink refills.
I have a little secret, well it isn't much of a secret but instead of fussy cutting the flowers I used the Birthday Dies! What?! Yes! The Birthday dies will be available starting February 4th, (while supplies last) March 31. The dies cut out the flowers as a group. They are easily cut apart which is what I did. The dies also cut out the entire cake image, fancy cake stand, and 2 different leaves. I used the leaves from the Happy Birthday dies to create the wreath.
I placed the #6 Layering Circle die (#1 being the smallest circle) and then placed the #7 circle around the #6 and ran it through my die cutting machine to create the ring for my wreath. I layered the leaves around the ring using Liquid Glue. There are 2 leaves on the die so it makes it easy to cut multiples. The flowers were attached using dimensionals. I added the little banner using the sentiment from the stamp set.
I loved how the wreath looked and thought it needed a simple but pretty background. The adorable polka dot stencil from the Basic Pattern Decorative Masks (these were in the Holiday Catalog and are now on the Carry Over list) was just perfect. I used the Shimmery White Embossing Paste, which adds a gorgeous glittery finish. Seriously, if you haven't tried the Shimmery White Embossing Paste stop now and order it! Yes, you can make your own by adding Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to your White Embossing Paste. I love that the Shimmery White EP is ready to go and all I have to do is open up the jar. Once the paste was dry which didn't take much time at all, the wreath was added using dimensionals.
Remember,the Birthday dies will be available starting February 4th, (while supplies last) March 31.
