Build a Birthday - Stamp With Amy K

Here is this weeks sketch, SB104:

Screen Shot 2015-05-12 at 3.58.26 PM

I started by adhering a panel from the Cherry on Top DSP Stack to a panel of Cucumber Crush card stock with SNAIL, then to a Watermelon Wonder card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Build a Birthday 1 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the images from the Build a Birthday photopolymer stamp set in Tip Top Taupe, Bermuda Bay, Cucumber Crush, Watermelon Wonder and Crushed Curry inks on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  I used my Paper Snips to cut a banner end in the panel, then adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Cucumber Crush card stock with SNAIL.  I cut a banner end in the Cucumber Crush panel with my Paper Snips, then adhered the layered banner to the card front with SNAIL.

Build a Birthday 2 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the sentiment from the Build a Birthday stamp set in Watermelon Wonder ink on a strip of Whisper White card stock.  I adhered the stamped sentiment to a strip of Watermelon Wonder card stock with SNAIL, then punched the banner end with the Banner Triple Punch.  I adhered the sentiment strip to the card front with SNAIL.

Build a Birthday 3 - Stamp With Amy K

I cut a small piece from the Tip Top Taupe 1″ Dotted Lace Trim, then looped a strand of Bermuda Bay Baker’s Twine around it.  I pulled the Baker’s Twine through a Bermuda Bay button from the Brights Designer Buttons pack and tied a little bow.  I adhered the layered embellishment to the card front with a Glue Dot.

Cherry On Top DSP Stack - Stamp With Amy K

I punched a strip of DSP from the Cherry on Top DSP Stack with the Banner Triple Punch and adhered it to a Whisper White panel inside the card.

  1. Hi Amy,WOWZERS!!!  The new SU catalog arrived today along with your sweet card…(which is always so welcomed)!  I glanced through it for a few minutes while I ate my lunch and it looks so inviting.  They carried over quite a number of old stamps and the news ones look great.  Can’t wait to sit down and really take it all in.   Thank you for including me on your list to receive one.  BTW…so love and appreciate all your cards you post for us.   Take care, Pat MajorCreativity is Gods gift to you, What you do with it is your gift to God    

  2. WOW, this looks awesome with the beautiful new colours and the fun stamp set. I can’t believe how absolutely PERFECT the stamped layers are – wow!
