Stamp TV 3D June




This is another entry for Stamp TV monthly 3D challenge. I keep thinking of more projects I can make. This is a container full of 3” X 3 1/2” birthday cards. These will be the cards I will give my students on their birthday. I used the same Viactiv container but a smaller one this time. I covered it with free digital paper from Stamp TV. All you have to do is click “Freebies,” select what you want, download and print. It is easy and fun. I cut the tag with my Cricut. I tied ribbon that I could curl around the container and tag. I stamped the cupcake, candle, and sentient from Gina K’s 100% Sweet stamp set. The cup cake and candle were stamped on white card stock. I cut them out and glued them to the tag. That took some time. I didn’t want to cut 18 cupcakes so I used Gina K’s Pure Luxury 120lb. card stock for the cards. That way I could color with Copic markers and not have it bleed through. I cut and stamped 18 cards. First I stamped the cup cake, then the candle, last the sentiment. I used a SU Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the sentiment. That is a very useful tool. I used Stinkling like a Star clear Spica pen to add sparkle on the icing. I colored three cards so far. I am saving the rest to take with me when we go to the cabin again so that I have something to keep me busy if the weather is bad and I don’t want to fish. I am going to love having these little cards ready to write a special message in for each child on his/her special day.

Remember to make an extra one for me! This is an AWESOME project. I may just have to do something similar - thank goodness I don't have as many kids next year than I did this year! Have fun at your class tomorrow!
