Stamping 411 Challenges Times 2

What a fun day of stampin' ~ we went out for dinner with friends to celebrate Dean's Birthday, what a great day! Two times the fun for the day and then Two challenges in one!
Stamping 411 Sketch and then the Color Inspiration, so is this called Double Dipping!

So this actually ends up being a little sneak peek for my up coming Birthday Stack Class ~ so Darlene....shhhhh. She is one of my faithful friends and checks up on me often! Love you my friend! 

 I Shimmer misted each of my Cupcake Toppers and then I added CE to each of the cherries (loving that look....quess I've been using CE a lot lately, can't seem to get away from it)!

Here is one of the birthday cards that we will be creating...not sure why I didn't order the stamps to go with my new punch (which I really need this one ladies) ~

Pulled out my Crimper, which I haven't used in quite sometime, but along with the new Cupcake Punch, this is a must and I'm sure it won't be feeling lonely any longer! 
I carried on the crimped effect on the inside of my card.

I used each of the colors from the Inspiration 148 on my envelope ~ you can never have too many birthday cakes!
