Happy Flippin' Birthday!!

It's time for another Creative Belli Challenge and this week's challenge is to use an old stamp.  I used a Repeat Impressions set of stamps (7207-W, Cake FLIP Set) that I have had for a few years to make this Flip birthday card that I made for my niece's birthday.  These flip cards (also known as waterfall cards) are fun to make and receive.  I paired my birthday cake series with some BasicGrey ice cream and cupcake paper.


The cake images were all colored with Copic markers to match the colors in the patterned paper.
When I got to the stamps that had candles and decorations, out came the Stickles!

The last cake image is nice and sparkly.
For the final stamp in the set, the sentiment, I stamped with Versamark and embossed with some Powder Keg embossing powder.


For the inside of the card, I used a couple of stamps from Papertrey Ink's Birthday Basics set.  If you're interested in making a flip card, please check out the Repeat Impressions site - Wendy offers instructions and all the supplies you need to make your own!

Would you like to play along with us on this week's Creative Belli challenge?  Just head on over to the Creative Belli Challenge blog to see what the other Design Team members have created for the challenge,and then pull out your old stamps and make a card!  Be sure to link your project to today's post to play along!

Thanks for stopping by!
