Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Balmy Blue card stock (CS) cut to 11″ x 4-1/4″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Balmy Blue CS cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″
  • Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 4″ x 1″ (Highland Heather)
  • DSP cut to 4″ x 3/4″ (Balmy Blue)
  • Powder Pink CS cut to 4″ x 1″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″ for the inside of the card

Stamped with the Hello Cupcake stamp set:

  • sentiment in Highland Heather ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS
  • cupcake top in Flirty Flamingo ink onto a scrap of Powder Pink CS
  • sprinkles in Highland Heather ink onto the cupcake top
  • cupcake middle in Powder Pink ink onto a scrap of Powder Pink CS
  • cupcake base in Highland Heather ink onto a scrap of Highland Heather CS

Die cut using the Call Me Cupcake Framelits:

  • cupcake top, cupcake middle, and cupcake base images
  • dome from a scrap of Vellum (I trimmed about 1/8″ off the bottom of the dome so it would fit better onto the layer.)
  • cake stand from a scrap of Glossy White CS

Die cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelits:

  • sentiment

Embossed using the Striped Scallops embossing folder:

  • Balmy Blue CS layer

Cut using the Banner Triple Punch:

  • one end of the Powder Pink CS strip and the 2 DSP strips

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • embossed Balmy Blue CS layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • 3 punched strips glued together, then glued over the Balmy Blue CS layer, then any extra trimmed off the edge of the card base
  • sentiment glued over the strips
  • cupcake top, middle, and base pieces glued together
  • glue spread all over the top of the cupcake pieces using a sponge dauber, then adhered the dome over the top. If the glue is on the entire piece it won’t be noticeable through the vellum, like it would if there were just a few dots of glue.
  • cake stand glued onto the bottom of the dome
  • cupcake & cake stand adhered onto the Balmy Blue CS layer using Stampin’ Dimensionals, putting dimensionals only on the back of the cupcake and cake stand, so they won’t be seen through the vellum
  • Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base

ICS Blog Hop 02-2019 – It’s A Love Thing

ICS Blog Hop header

Today for the ICS Love Thing Blog Hop we are sharing projects for wedding, anniversary or Valentines Day. I’m sharing the little gifts I made for some friends of mine for Valentine’s Day. I filled Sweet Cups with Valentine themed peanut M&Ms, and decorated the lids with the Sweetest Thing bundle, How Sweet It Is and Garden Impressions Designer Series Papers, and the Layering Circles Framelits Dies. I used the Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment so it would be in exactly the same place on each one – read on to see how I did that. Super quick and easy!

Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Die cut using the Layering Circles Framelits:

  • largest scalloped circle from Melon Mambo card stock (CS)
  • largest plain circle from Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper (DSP)
  • largest plain circle from a scrap of CS (any color) for a Stamparatus template (see below)

Die cut using the Jar of Sweets Framelits:

  • candy jars from a piece of How Sweet It Is DSP

Stamped with the Sweetest Thing stamp set:

  • sentiment in black ink onto the DSP circle
  • I placed the die cut template on the Stamparatus and placed the stamp where I wanted it on all the circles. Then I placed each DSP circle in the template and stamped. This is great for stamping multiples of the same thing, or for stamping in the same place more than once if you didn’t get a good stamp the first time.

  • Melon Mambo CS circle adhered onto the lid of the sweet cup using Tear & Tape

Be Mine Forever Lovely Valentine

Today I’m sharing a Valentine I made using some of the products on pages 4-6 of the 2019 Occasions catalog: Forever Lovely stamp set, Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies, All My Love Designer Series Paper, and All My Love Ribbon Combo Pack. 

I CASEd this card. Unfortunately I can’t remember from whom I CASEd it. And I haven’t been able to find the card that inspired me anywhere. So if you know who made a card similar to this one, that may have been the one I CASEd, please let me know, so I can give credit to them.
