CPS Sketch Challenge - CPS131

This week's sketch challenge on CPS has a Stampin' Up demonstrator as a sponsor and the prize is $30 in Stampin' Up!!! I just received my Holiday Mini Catalog and I love the Sweet Centers stamp I definitely need to win - LOL!! It's also a great sketch:

Here is my take on this sketch:

Stamp: Happy Birthday from an old Stampin Up set - not sure which one since I took it out of the set to put it in my sayings drawer!!

Ink: SU Pumpkin Pie

Paper: SU Pumpkin Pie, SU Ruby Red, SU So Saffron, SU Washington Apply PP

Misc: Sizzix flower & embossing plates, Fiskars embossing plates, Buttons, Ribbon

I've wanted to make a card layered like a birthday cake since I saw a card with a christmas tree layered. It looked so cool with different embossing layers and I kept thinking a birthday cake would be cool too. So using different embossing plates, I inked them & also used markers to make them pop.

PS - I'm loving my Big Kick!! Make sure you keep your old Fiskars embossing can use them in the Big Kick like you use your Sizzix embossing plates!

  1. Great idea! I knew you would love the Big Kick - embossing is the best. Now you need to get a cricut so that we can load in fonts!!

  2. BTW I will be posting my card for the challenge later :>)
