Stamp A Stack Cards

Here's a close up of the cake!!

These are the SAS Cards I designed. The first one is the Adult Birthday. I decided on making it a feminine card this time around. I used the Eat cake set from Stampin up and to make it look more Feminine I used the faux shaving cream technique on the cake part.
I got these instructions from Beth the host on splitcoaststampers. It was from the tlc110 we did a while back. Thank you Beth.
Here is how to do it:
Ink up a solid stamp, either with your brayer or just by tapping it on the ink pad. Take a small stamp (1/2" to 1") and touch it to the inked surface of the solid stamp and then twist. Repeat the touch and twist motion all over the solid stamp. "Huff" (breathe) on the solid stamp to remoisten the ink if necessary and then stamp it on your cardstock. The result is a beautiful mottled look.Variation: ink up the smaller stamp with a contrasting color before touching/twisting. This will introduce another color into the swirls. I also used the crystal effects, I made a line going through the center of the cake and put micro beads on the top. What a cool look. I was really pleased the way it turned out. lastly I want to tell you about the scoring I did too. I took the White piece and using my fiskers cutter. Using the scoring attachment I scored 1/4 inch all the way around the CS to make it look like a frame I then did my paper piercing in the corners. I also did the scoring on the bottom of the card. The lines are 1/4 inch apart.

The Second card is the Thinking of you one I did. This one is really an easy card to put together. I tapped off the leaves stamp and then stamped the flower on top. I watercolored in the flowers using the blender pen. to Make the vase, I took Stampin up large oval punch and after I punched out the oval I cut off the bottom of the oval to make it flat and then used the ticket punch on the top. Last I sponged all over it to give it a real look. I was really plesed with this one too..
