One Stamp Set - One Ink Pad


This card is for The PPA Challenge.  Click on the link to play along or to see all the wonderful submissions.

It is a Color Challenge:
Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge #PPA303

As my post title indicates, I used one stamp set, Endless Birthday Wishes and one Ink Pad, Night of Navy, both from Stampin' Up!

The card is a standard 4.25 X 5.50 inches.  The layers are 3 X 3, 3.25 X 3.25 and 3.5 X 3.5 inches.

I stamped the cake image on the Sahara Sand layer, then stamped the image two more times on scraps of cardstock.  One image was stamped on  Mint Macron and one on Night of Navy cardstock. 

I then fussy cut the cake from the mint color and the cake stand from the navy and glued both pieces to the original image on the Sahara Sand layer.

I randomly stamped the Sahara Sand base with various images from the stamp set in Navy.

I punched mint and navy stars with the Confetti Stars Border and glued around the cake.  I put stars on the candle flames and then added silver Dazzling Details to the flames.


  1. The card has so much texture yet you used one stamp and one ink pad. Great use of this set and the color palette.

  2. Diane, I love the whimsical nature of your card. Making the background from other elements in the set really pull everything together. So cute! Thank you for playing with Pals Paper Arts this week!

  3. Diane, this is so cute! The way you used the Mint Macaron makes it just pop off the page! So happy you shared your card with us this week at Pals Paper Arts!
