PIECE OF CAKE - ANOTHER USE FOR YOUR RETIRING DSP! May 2019 Stamp Camp

Hi, Stampers!
     WE made this card as one of our projects at my May 11 Stamp Camp.  I posted the details earlier, so just go back to my post dated March 28 for more info!


Happy Stampin’!

ANOTHER FUN, QUICK AND EASY DSP CARD! MAY STAMP CAMP


NEW HOST CODE:  YNBSWNMK
Hello, Stampers!
    I got the idea for this card from Kelly Acheson (A Stamp Above).  Pull out those punches, circle dies and DSP scraps again for this fun card!  Two of the circles here are cut or punched from the How Sweet It Is DSP (I love the bright and cheerful colors) and I don't even remember where we pulled the others from.  The only changes we made to Kelly's card (other than DSP) is that we added a little Wink of Stella on the candle and a couple of white enamel dots (retired), which we colored with Stampin' Blends.  Any bling will do.  More details and products used below.


Happy Stampin’!

Details:
     The card base is Bermuda Bay (campers had their choice of BB or Melon Mambo), the Basic Black Mat is 5-1/4 x 4 and the WW layer is 5-1/8 x 3-7/8.
     The Punches we used are 2-1/2", 1-3/4", 1-1/2" and 1-1/4."  Any circle shapes of comparable sizes will work.
     The scalloped circle is from the Layering Circles Die set (third largest scallop) and the WW circle where the sentiment is stamped is cut with the second largest circle in the Stitched Shapes die set. This is popped up on Dimensionals.
      The sentiment and candle are from the Picture Perfect Birthday set that will be retiring June 3.  It is a keeper set - check it out!

BIRTHDAYS ARE A "PIECE OF CAKE"! HOW SWEET IT IS

Hiya, Stampers!
    Today's card was created with the Piece of Cake Stamps/Punch Bundle and How Sweet It Is DSP (both are in the Occasions Catalog).  I love the bright colors in this paper pack.  In fact, I bought the DSP before I bought the Bundle!  I also really like the tongue-in-cheek sentiments.  The inside of my card says, "Who cares what the question is!"
     Do you notice anything else about my card?  My cake stand is upside down!  LOL  Anyway, let's get started with measurement, etc.
Happy Stampin’!

Measurements
     My card base is Coastal Cabana, a standard A2 Horizontal top-fold.  I embossed the front with the Polka Dot Basics TIEF.  The Gorgeous Grape CS piece is 4-1/4 x 2-3/4 and adhered to the base at an angle.  I think I should have made it a little bigger, like 4-1/2 x 3, so the embossing would show more.  I embossed it with the Dot to Dot TIEF (Occ. Catalog).  The DSP is 4 x 2-3/4.
     The Grape circle was die cut with a roughly 2" scalloped die from the Layering Circle Framelits and it is mounted onto a Pearlized Doily (2 sets FREE with $50 during Sale-A-Bration). The cake and stand are stamped on Shimmery White CS and punched out with the Cake Builder Punch and colored with Blends and Markers, and a little Wink of Stella over the frosting.  The candles are fussy-cut. All three were glued together and then popped up with Dimensionals.
    My sentiment and DSP banners are 1/2" and 3/4," respectively.  I added some Glitter Enamel Dots and that's it.  Product pictures and links are below on my blog.
