PETAL PROMENADE QUICK AND EASY - May Stamp Camp

Hello, Stampers!
     I hope all of you stamper Moms had a lovely Mother's Day, despite the weather (if you are in Indiana.)  ;-(  At Saturday's stamp camp we used retiring Designer Series Papers in various ways on all of your projects!  Good news?  The Pearlized Doilies will be carried over!  I just love them.
     TIP:  Use a color that coordinates with your DSP for your mat and behind the sentiment - coordinating colors are listed on the back of your DSP pack.
     This first card, using the beautiful Petal Promenade DSP is very Q&E.  It also makes a lovely sympathy, get well, Mother's Day, wedding or anniversary card.  So, if you have some favorite DSP that is retiring, use it and you'll end up with plenty of last-minute cards if you leave the sentiment blank until you need it.  The front and inside sentiments on this card are from the Perennial Birthday set.  Here are the simple measurements and supplies for the above card.

Happy Stampin’!

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.
