Cycle Celebration... Celebrate a Sweet Birthday

I remember loving this color combination (Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight and Rich Razzleberry) a few years ago when it was featured on a pack of Designer Series Paper - I guess I'm just a "sucker" for fun, bright colors!!!

We start our card with a Melon Mambo card base,
then added a layer of Daffodil Delight Card Stock.

Next, we stamped those great candles (from the Cycle Celebration Stamp Set) in our coordinating colors (see above) on a piece of Whisper White card stock.  Just make sure to clean your stamp between each color as there is only one candle stamp in this set!

This stamp set is on the retiring list - it's guaranteed to be available only until May 26!  I sure am going to miss this cute stamp set - it's one of my favorites in the catalog!!

Cycle Celebration Stamp Set  wood-mount  130270  $21.95
Cycle Celebration Stamp Set  clear-mount  130273  $16.95

Next, we added a strip of Pumpkin Pie card stock embossed with our Chevron Embossing Folder and a strip of Rich Razzleberry 1/4" Cotton Ribbon above our embossed piece.

Chevron Embossing Folder  127749  $7.95

Rich Razzleberry 1/4" Cotton Ribbon  134564  $5.95

Finally, we stamped "celebrate a sweet birthday" in Pumpkin Pie ink and punched it out with our Large Oval Punch.  We cleaned the stamp off and inked it in Melon Mambo ink, then punched it out with our Decorative Label Punch.

I just love how these pieces look layered together!!

Large Oval Punch  119855  $15.95

Decorative Label Punch  120907  $16.95

I hope you enjoyed this card!!
Thanks so much to Laurie Chilton for her inspiration on this card.

And....  I hope you have an Inkspired day!!
