Birthday Brights

Today I have 2 cards Birthday cards to share featuring The Rubber Cafe's -Hey Cupcake! stampset and BoBunny's new Surprise! 6x6 pad.
When I break out my rubber stamps, I love to make card sets.  It's a great way to have cards on hand for any occasion.  Using a stamp set like the Hey Cupcake! set it's fun to mix and match but I've kept it simple by using the same paper set.  
I stamped the frosting swirl and cupcake wrapper from the Hey Cupcake! set, on two different patterned papers, then cut them out and used foam tape to give them dimension. 
The sentiment was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, and popped up with foam tape.  For a finishing touch, I fussy cut balloons from the paper, added some buttons and bakers twine and finally Holly Berry Red Jellie Dots, from The Rubber Cafe'.  I distressed everything with Black Soot Ink, and assembled my card. 
This next card I also used the Hey Cupcake! set, but paper pieced my cupcake using the other frosting stamp, the adorable "sweet birthday" sentiment and, of course, who can resist a little cherry on top?

This one has the fun Golden Jellie Dots....I think Jellie Dots are one of my new favorite things! They are a fun accent and are easy to use with the Stick 'Em Up and Scrap Happy Glue.

Hope you enjoyed the creations in the Cafe' today!
