#HBD

Hi everyone! Today I bring you a card set I made with only one stamp set. Happy Something is the name of this set and it is by Kal Barteski for Studio Calico. I ordered this because I thought it would be a great set to have in case I ever needed to make a quick birthday card. But when I played with the set, I couldn’t stop! I love the font and the “sketchy” look of the cupcakes and candles.

The first card I made, I used masking tape to cut out the candles because I wanted to put them on top of the cupcakes.#HBD 1

I used my MISTI to stamp on this card. As you can see below, I stamped the candles first, and then put the masking tape candles I cut on top.

I also used the plastic that came with my Stamp-a-ma-jig to help me align the cupcakes right where I wanted them. I learned this tip from Maureen Wong, she has many YouTube videos that show you different tips and tricks on using the MISTI.#HBD 3

Here is the finished card. The striped background paper is from the September Skies paper pack by Heidi Swapp. When I picked this paper for the background, I grabbed some Copics that matched and colored in the cupcakes.#HBD 4

I loved how the colors came out so I went ahead and used the same Copics for the rest of the set.

#HBD 5 For the next card, I just made a pattern using the four cupcake stamps and colored them in with the Copics. I stamped the sentiment on a piece of Lavender Moon paper from PaperTrey Ink. #HBD 6 For the last card, I used masking tape again to help guide me with the placement of the candles. I stamped the ends of the candle over the tape which didn’t matter because I ended up covering the ends with a piece of Smokey Shadow card stock.#HBD 7 I heat embossed the sentiment with my VersaMark Emboss Ink Pad and Simon Says Stamp Clear Embossing Powder.

#HBD 9To finish off the card, I colored in the candles with the same Copics.
#HBD 8This set is perfect to have at the office or to give as a gift. I love the fun colors, the graphics, and the sentiments. I really enjoyed making this set and I hope the recipients enjoy them just as much!#HBD 11
