Celebrating The Past, Present, and Future: 2016

Good morning! We've reached the last day of the Papertrey Ink 10th Anniversary stroll down memory lane. A group of us are revisiting our favorite sets from 2016 today and I've chosen to work with Just Desserts.

Just Desserts may be my very favorite of the sets I've designed so far. I mean, what's not to love about birthdays, cake, and sprinkles? This set is so much fun to use and it's versatile enough to make cards for just about anyone!

10th Anniversary - Birthday Cake Wishes Card

I knew I wanted to make a more masculine card today, so I began by die cutting the sprinkle cake shape and stamping the different sprinkle layers with Spring Rain, Vintage Jadeite, and Dark Indigo inks. I added the candles using Dark Indigo and Bright Buttercup inks. Next, I sponged a bit of Spring Rain ink onto a white card base before stamping the Script Swirls: Birthday sentiment in the same ink.

Then I die cut the frame from Fill In The Blank and stamped it with the coordinating lines in Vintage Jadeite ink. I adhered it to the card base and then stitched on a Monthly Moments: Tabbed shape that I'd sponged with Deep Indigo ink and stamped with a sentiment from the Clipsters set. I added an Enchanted Evening patterned paper strip that I'd heat embossed with a sentiment from the Just Desserts Sentiments mini set before mounting my cake with foam tape.

Here are a few past projects using Just Desserts:

This trio of simple cards uses a handful of rhinestones to add interest. These came together quickly and would make a cute gift set.
