Perfect Pair

Hi and welcome to my blog. I want to show you a valentine card I made using the Just For Fun Cake With Candles large stamp and the Perfect Pair saying stamp. Just For Fun has just the right stamps to help make your valentines!

I chose the fun stripped patterned paper for y background that also had hearts on it. I used Diamond Glaze on them to make them shine as you will see in the next photo. I stamped the image and cut it out using the Nellie Snellon doily die. This was attached to the pink Spellbinders small die circle. I colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers and added Sparkle embossing powder ( courtesy of Sparkle N Sprinkle ) to the cake icing. Yellow Stickles glitter was added to the candle flames. I edged the die, patterned paper and banners with pink dye based ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Please come join the Just For Fun Sweet Nothings challenge here. We would love to see your creations and you may also win a gift certificate to the store! Have a great day!

  1. Such a fun card, and the cake image is whimsical and looks great in the colors you used. All the papers and glitter go together so well!

  2. What a festive birthday card! The stripes are a great background! Love the dimension the Diamond Glaze added to the little hearts. I just bought some Spectrum Noir markers and haven't had a chance to use them. After seeing all the great coloring, I'm itching to get them out and play!
