Happy Cake Day from Bumbleberry Papercrafts, by MFT

Hello crafters xx

Monday is here fast did that weekend go!

I'm back with my Monday morning blog for
Bumbleberry Papercrafts  and today I'm sharing a card I made using the adorable
Happy Cake Day

Also used:
Distress Oxides: Fossilized Amber, Wilted Violet, Cracked Pistachio
Smokey Grey versafine ink
Striped Purple  Paper
Plain Yellow Paper
Kuretake clean colour pens

  • Using masking tape, I masked off a square panel on my card blank 
  • The Distress Oxides were blended together, spritzing with water, to create a background 
  • The masking tape was removed and the sentiment was stamped,  in Smokey Grey versafine, around the square panel
  • I stamped the girl 3 times. Once on white card,  once on yellow paper and once on the purple striped paper.  
  • The image on the white card was cut out, and her face , hair, arms and legs were coloured in with Kuretake clean colour pens 
  • From the purple striped image, I cut the sections of her dress out. On the yellow paper I cut out the cake
  • Using wet glue I adhered the pieces of the dress and cake to my coloured in image. This is called paper piecing 
  • She was adhered to card blank using foam pads, to complete this sample 
I hope you've enjoyed today's post and don't forget to check out their website for more amazing products

  5. Love that image and the delicate colours you have used.
    Super card.
    My only criticism, or maybe it's just something I cant do - is the upside down sentiment at the top. I always do the top and bottom sentiment on an all the way round greeting the right way up. Dont mean this to be negative - its just me!

    1. Everyone does it there own way so no worries xx
