She used a bunch of cardstock scraps cut in different widths to create this eye catching rainbow hue background. I love how she kept her 2-tier cake mostly white which makes it really pops from the background.
The yellow polka dots were made using a tiny hole puncher. The sentiment was from our Bond With Nature Canada stamp set which she white heat embossed onto the icing piece.
This card is clean and simple, yet so vibrant and charming. Thank you so much for sharing this with us Stephanie!

First I created my background using the Hello Sunshine Stencils 360°TM combined with the Stencils 360°TM tool. I used Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet and Shaded Lilac for my ink blending. You’ll notice that instead of sticking to one side of my stencil, I flipped my stencil to the other side for inking as well. I really like the added depth that this little trick creates.
Then I took a large sentiment from the Words From the Heart (Chapter 1) stamp set and silver heat embossed it to my card. And finally, I added gems along the inner diameter of the circular patterns for some extra sparkle!
She created two mini-scenes on each of the rectangle die cut panels by stamping, masking, some of the adorable critters from the My BFF stamp set. She ink blended the background using Squeezed Lemonade, Kitsch Flamingo, and Milled Lavender Distress Oxide Inks, and then removed the masks to add some copic coloring.
She ink blended the side decorative panels with the same distress oxide inks. These colors match perfectly to this month’s Color Palette Inspiration for our Monthly Challenge!
To finish off, she added two tabs with sentiments from the My BFF stamp set. I love the white highlights she added to the stamped images to make them pop! The coolest thing is that this pop-up card folds flat and fits into a 6 x 6″ envelope for mailing!
Thank you so much for this super delightful inspiration Candice!

For my card, I used the Rainbows & Butterflies Stencils 360°TM for the background. I blended just ONE color on each of my 60 degree rotations. I used a combination of Distress oxide inks including Shaded Lilac, Tattered Rose, Spun Sugar, Squeezed Lemonade, Worn Lipstick, and Picked Raspberry to create this soft pastel palette.
I used our Never Lose Hope stand-alone die and cut out 3 pieces using Cotton Candy – Heavyweight Premium Cardstock and stacked them together to create some depth. I used the shadow die on the blended background to create a little window to house the sentiment, and used the same color cardstock for my back panel. I really love the tone-on-tone effect.
I really hope you enjoy today’s inspiration! Don’t forget that this month’s challengeruns until May 13th at 11:59 PDT.
