Scoops of Birthdays and Thanks

I was having trouble getting my mojo going the other day so I assigned numbers to my stamps, used a random number generator to pull up a number and then had to make a card with the corresponding stamp set.  This Reverse Confetti set was the first one to come up so I made a birthday card for the RC Stock Your Stash challenge.  Super simple with some of my favorite colours of cardstock.  Since I had the set out I also made a thank you card - same layout but with a bit more going on in the background.
The number thing really worked to get me going.  Sometimes I feel overwhelmed with choice when I'm looking at my supplies and don't know where to start so taking the choice out of my hands really helped.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding, Coastal Cabana, Crumb Cake) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Sentiments from Love & Ice Cream) Reverse Confetti
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Granite Grey) My Favourite Things
Other:  (Nuvo Caribbean Ocean Crystal Drops) Tonic

Fun and fabulous Jen, what a great idea to repeat stamp the sentiment for a background!

To randomly assign yourself a set to play with is the best thing I've heard for ages Jen! Both cards are fabulous. It's so clever to use the sentiment as a fainter background stamp but I think my CAS little soul is really attracted to the one that focusses on that stacked ice cream (or should that read my greedy little soul LOL!)
