Set of Birthday Cards

Hello, Readers,

I really went to town using my dessert stamps on this set of birthday cards commissioned by a friend. For this occasion I brought out my new custom stamp to "sign" the backs of my cards.

The design for these cards is reused from this card, but I extended it to the ice cream stamps and made continued good use of the Lawn Fawn's Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables dies. You may recall that when Simon Says Stamp sent me a free gift awhile back they sent me a set of stamps with a coordinating frame die. I was finally able to put it to use on a few of these cards. I used Avery Elle's Bring on the Cake and Simon Says Stamp's Ice Cream Dream. The patterned papers are from basicgrey's 6x6 Prism pad. I used Glossy Accents for the first time. I'm not super happy with my execution, and as you can see I took photos before it was completely dry and clear. In theory, I like the idea of Glossy Accents, but I'm not sure I'm ultimately going to find it worth the trouble. I have enough drama with adhesives as it is...wait, what am I even on about...




  1. I don't know, Lael, the glossy finish is pretty cool looking.

    1. I think I need to work on the application process--part of the problem is my impatience in letting it dry properly, but also free floating cat hair!
