Sweet and simple birthday card.

I got some new washi tape and haven’t had much of a chance to use it yet. This just had to be fixed! So when I made a birthday card to send to J’s dad I just had to break it out!

I took both of these photos on my iPhone using the instagram app — love this app like crazy! I’m sideoats on instagram if you’d like to follow me.

Here’s a bit about the supplies that I used besides the washi tape! First off, it’s kind of hard to tell, but the Paper Source luxe white notecards have a nice texture to them.

The new cupcake stamp is by Basic Grey! It’s in the NEW PB + J Collection and will be coming to stores soon. (YUM.)  The patterned paper is from the older Life of the Party 6×6 paper pad — love how you can mix old and new, don’t you?

I colored the cupcake using Copic markers — wanted it to look really chocolatey and rich and delicious. Then to finish it off I just added some brown gems.

Happy Birthday, Dad!  We love you!

  16. Love this card-that cupcake looks delish! Lisa, hope your knee is continuing to get better- I had surgery in August and am doing well but sometimes just get strange pains out of nowhere and just worry if everything is OK in there. My doctor says that if the pains don’t hang around not to worry, so I try to let it go. So then I go stamp or make a card-that takes my mind off my knee!
