Cupcake Inspirations Birthday Challenge #400: Day 2


Welcome to Day 2 of the 400th Birthday Challenge celebration at Cupcakes Inspirations! We will be celebrating all week long with different sponsors and you will have a chance to win! All of the details, including prize information, can be found on the Cupcakes Inspirations blog.  I hope you'll play along!   


Today's sponsor is Stamplorations.  Be sure to check out their line of stamps, dies, stencils and more!  

The challenge this week is to make a birthday card but to also choose a past theme of your choice to use WITH the birthday card.  Please note in your post which previous challenge you used.   You can see all of the previous challenge graphics HERE.

For this card I used the previous challenge theme of "bunting" on my card.  I started by cutting my white panel with the Gina Marie Designs Scalloped Stitched Nested Rectangle Dies.  I used a couple colors of the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks to color my balloon backgrounds on scratch paper.  Then, I stamped that with the Stamplorations Balloons & Banners stamps and cut them out.  I stamped the balloon strings and then popped the balloons up with foam tape.  I then stamped the bunting, also from the same stamp set, and cut them out.  I die cut the Celebrate Word die first with gold glitter paper and then twice more with an aqua cardstock and layered the pieces together to create dimension.  


   Remember the challenge this week is to make a birthday card but also to choose a past theme of your choice to use WITH the birthday card.  Please note in your post which previous challenge you used.  You can see all of the previous challenge graphics HERE.

 Be sure to visit the Cupcake Inspirations blog each day to see the newest sponsor.  I hope you'll join us this week for the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #400 birthday celebration!
