Hello stamping friends!
Well, I had originally planned this card for the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge – but I missed the cut-off time today! Oh well! I was just too busy; my lovely customer Lynn is hosting a Stampin’ Up! party tomorrow evening, and I’ve been making sure I’m all prepped & ready for fun with Lynn and her friends! We always have a good stampin’ good time at a Stampin’ Up! party 🙂
Plus, I’m holding a “About the Guys” class on Friday evening; we’re focusing on upcoming Father’s Day, and will be making 2 cards and 2 gift card holders. I’m not the only one who gets a lot of mileage out of gift cards for ‘guy’ days, am I?? It’s not that I don’t bother to shop – it’s that the guys in my life seem to have everything already!! (they aren’t reading this – it’s okay! besides; they like going & getting what they want!)
So here I am with another card, featuring another way to use the new Sprinkles of Life stamp set:
My cards previously using this set included making clouds, flower baskets and an ice cream cone; now here is the cupcake version!! Isn’t that coordinating sentiment just the cutest?!
My card base is Whisper White cardstock, with a panel of Cucumber Crush embossed with the Decorative Dots embossing folder on top. To the left I place a panel of Watermelon Wonder cardstock, and on top of that are small rectangles of Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper. I stamped the bottom of the cupcake in Crumb Cake in on Crumb Cake cardstock; the top was stamped on Whisper White cardstock in Watermelon Wonder ink. The sprinkles are stamped (yes, this set comes with a stamp for sprinkles!) in Cucumber Crush, Mint Macaron and Watermelon Wonder. The cupcake top was punched out using the Tree Builder Punch.
The cupcake was layered on top of a 1 3/4″ punched circle of Cucumber Crush, which was layered on top of a 2″ Scallop Circle of Watermelon Wonder. Everything was layered onto the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The sentiment is in Watermelon Wonder ink, and the little bow is made of Whisper White Thick Baker’s Twine.
I think this cute card could be given to anyone, for just about any happy occasion; a birthday, a thank you, or just because. Like I said on previous posts, I am just loving this stamp set; it is so versatile – I’ve used it 4 times, and haven’t repeated a theme yet! And I haven’t even made a standard tree, yet! I’m looking forward to getting a lot more use out of this stamp; I think you’d be happy if you were to add it to your ‘must have’ list, come June 2nd and you can order it!
I hope you enjoyed this card; thanks for spending a few moments of your day with me! If you’d like to leave a message, I’m always happy to read them 🙂
Until next time – happy stamping!
