Birthday Cake Kitty

I really wanted to play along with the Cooking challenge at MFP Speedy Fox and Friends this week, but I quickly found out that I don't have any cooking stamps!  So I turned to my go-to freebie blog - Free Dearie Dolls Digi Stamps - and I found this cute pre-coloured digi of a kitty making a birthday cake - it looks like this kitty has been cooking for hours!

I started by stamping a mini birthday cake in black repeatedly on a rose panel and affixed to a yellow card base.  Then I added two thing strips of purple cardstock.  I mounted the kitty on black and turquoise cardstock and affixed to the card.  I stamped the birthday cake in black on a purple die-cut oval, affixed to the card with foam tape, and added lavender Stickles.  I stamped the sentiment in black and embellished with three punched hearts.  Lastly I added six black gems and a coloured gem to each heart..  Here are the supplies I used:
  • Stamps:  Birthday cake (Kelly Panacci), sentiments (Heidi Grace), mini birthday cake (Dollarama)
  • DigistampFree Dearie Dolls Digi Stamps (direct link to pre-coloured digi)
  • Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black, StazOn Jet Black                   
  • Cardstock:  Recollections 
  • Glitter Glue:   Stickles - Lavender          
  • Heart Punch:  Emagination
  • Die:  Nellie's Multiframes - Ovals
  • Gems:  Dollarama
  • Sketch:  Sketchy Colors (see below)

Thank you for looking at my card - I enjoy reading your comments!  Have a wonderful day of crafting!


  1. Good morning! Like your sweet Kitty card. Like how you stamped the background cakes. When I looked at the background paper I first thought that the stamped cakes were part of the paper to begin with. You did a wonderful stamping job on this.
