Did you know that September is National Stamping Month? I don't really consider myself a stamper, but I own enough stamps and inks that it would be a shame to let National Stamping Month pass without joining the celebration!
I dug through my scrap stash and came up with a lightly-patterned green piece that would work as a background, a piece of colorful grid paper for my sentiment, and some cardstock pieces for the card base and accents. The first step was stamping a really fun and whimsical cake. I fussy-cut it, then shaded it with color pencils. I added Stickles over the top of each color. Next, I used Versamark to stamp 'Happy Birthday' all over the green background. (It's hard to see in the picture, but it's easily visible in real life.) I used a different stamp and ink for the main sentiment, then grabbed a fun border punch to add a background.
Have you celebrated National Stamping Month? It's not too late!
