Happy STAMPlorations Inspiration Post day! Have you been crafting this week? I have to admit I haven't yet but it's only Tuesday so there is still plenty of time!
I'm showing you two super quick birthday cards I created the other week. Sometimes you may find yourself in a situation where you may have inadvertently managed to get very close to someone's birthday and then all of a sudden remember you needed to create them a card. These cards will only take you about 10 minutes or so to create.
Let's start with the card at the top of this post. I started by stamping the Layered Cake Bake cake slice in black and coloured ink, which took about 30 seconds. I then grabbed the Oh My Stars! Mini Stencil and randomly inked some yellows and oranges with a sponge through the stencil. Next, I stamped the numbers using Sketchy Alphabet onto a scrap piece of paper. Fussy cutting them is what took the longest on this card, several minutes. If you are in a super hurry, you could always stamp directly onto the card rather than faffing around with fussy cutting. I then inked up the flames and stamped them on top of the letters so they look like candles. Last, I splattered some brown ink for added texture to the background, and die cut the sentiment using Everyday Sentiments Dies. Again, glueing the die cuts could be skipped by just quickly stamping a sentiment, or even using one of the fab Clear Stickers, which would take you half a second!
