I have a great birthday card to show you today. It features a retiring stamp set that is really fun to use. All the words and cake layers are angled! Curious? Here's my card :
Here's a picture of the stamp set (Crazy Cake #142850) so you can see how it works:
I think it helps to see all the angled pieces. You can build a sentiment, build a cake or build both. You could even throw some candles on top for a truly wonderful celebration. I want to play with this set some more and see if I can come up with some ideas that aren't cake-related. I love to think outside the box and get a more versatile use out of my Stampin'Up! tools, papers and stamps. You're imagination is the limit! For this particular card, I used some Fiesta Designer Series Paper and I inked up some bubble wrap and then placed some white card stock on top of that and ran a brayer over it for my second layer. That's a great way to get some color and texture.
Don't forget about our retiring products! Some things have already sold out but there are still some great deals. Here's the best place to see them:

Big Sky Stampin' Papercrafting
I have been a crafter most of my life, starting in about 8th grade when I tried to embroider some frogs on a quilt, that I never finished! Although the list of what "I never finished" is long, and includes cross stitch, knitting, crocheting, quilting and more, my latest obsession is paper! I joined Stampin'Up! as an independent demonstrator in October 2011 and have been going like crazy ever since! I offer classes in my home, do catered card parties at your home and sell my cards locally in Bozeman, Montana and around the lovely Gallatin Valley. I would love to meet and talk to you if you are interested in the papercrafting hobby or just need some unique handmade cards for a special occasion!
