When is a stamp not a stamp?

I've been experimenting with using tools or other things lying around differently then how they were designed.  Most recently I've realized that the mini blending tool makes the perfect polka dot stamp!  So I utilized this to make (yet another) birthday card ready to send out this fall.

Super-saturated my blending foam(s) with distress ink (Abandoned Coral, Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon & Squeezed Lemonade and stamped them on smooth watercolor paper & sprinkled with water for a softer effect.  Layered that on top of a piece of vellum & attached it to a cardstock card base.  For the cupcake, I stamped & die-cut it from specialty stamping paper and then embellished the icing with clear glitter & the candle with texture gems.  The sentiment is stamped on a scrap piece of watercolor paper cut into a banner.

  1. This is a great background effect you have created here. I think it's such a festive card! Distress Inks are the best! Thanks for sharing with us at Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge. Cheers, Nicole
