Birthday Wishes Penny Black Possum with Cupcake Card and Tags
I 'found' this really cute Penny Black stamp in my birthday-themed stamp drawer and realized that it had never been inked up. I decided to pair it with some new dies that I purchased recently from HM Ben Franklin Crafts. I love the polka dot background die (Spellbinders) because there are so many color combinations possible. The Sizzix words were supposed to be a cake decoration but who would ever do that? I knew that a better use for the die would be to add a splash of glitter to a card and the holes on the side were perfect place for some twine bows.
The Spellbinders fancy banner dies seemed ideal for tags. Since I had extra stamped possum images (always make extras just in case) I decided that one would look good with lace to make a tag that mimics a winner's competition ribbon. The other tag was simpler and has a space in back for a message. Bo Bunny sugar white was used to make the frosting and MS sprinkles were used for decorating. The smaller tag had some blemishes so I covered them up with clear Stickles and the pinkish red Stickles was used on the cherry.
Well, that's it for today. Hope that you will go shopping at HM Ben Franklin Crafts soon to checkout all the new items arriving. New craft tools and supplies always seem to inspire creativity. Get inspired today at HM BFC!
