CPS 148 – Happy Moments SAB

Here's a sneak peek of a Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration set, Happy Moments, coming out on TUESDAY, January 5!  It has some FUN images in it…my favorite is the birdcage.  However, the Birthday Cake filled my requirement today.  I wanted to do the sketch from Card Positioning Systems.

I liked that the birthday cake had a couple rows of flowers that look just like the Sizzlet Strip Die, Flowers.  I took my colors from the YUMMY Stampin' Up! Designer Paper, Sweet Pea, that is in the Occasions Mini, too!  LOVE the patterns in that Designer Pack!

I started with a base card of Rose Red and layered on the Sweet Pea Designer Paper, layered onto Old Olive cardstock.  I added the strip of Pretty in Pink cardstock across the front, and then used my Flowers Strip Die to cut Rose Red Flowers to layer on top.  In the larger flowers, I added Latte Designer Buttons and in the small ones, I punched circles from the Crop-A-Dile from So Saffron, then used some Tombow Glue and Dazzling Diamonds to make them sparkle.   

My focal element, I stamped the Birthday Cake from Happy Moments in Basic Brown, then watercolored with my Stampin' Write Markers in Rose Red, Sahara Sand, Chocolate Chip and So Saffron to match the paper.  The flower center and candles I used a little Tombow Glue and Dazzling Diamonds.  I layered the Whisper White on Old Olive, then Chocolate Chip cardstock  and popped it up with Stampin' Dimensionals!

I think it is a FUN card and I loved the sketch!  Will be playing with that one some more on another day!

Hope you have a wonderful week!  I'll be BUSY packing for Leadership.  WOOHOO!

Don't forget!  Today is the LAST day for Early Bird Special signups on Create with Connie and Julie!
