  • 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)

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

So Hoppy Hop Along Frogs

My card today is made with a Sale-a-bration item – the So Hoppy Together stamp set – and a coordinating item that will be available in March – the Hop Along Framelits Dies. I’m so excited that Stampin’ Up! is bringing out die sets to go with the Sale-a-bration stamp sets! This set has been so popular, and I know you’ll want the dies to go along with it. Coordinating dies or punches make any stamp set so much more versatile.

…and here it is open. Notice anything?

Unfortunately, this wasn’t on purpose. I finished the card and took it upstairs to photograph it, when I realized I had adhered the card front upside down. Oops! If I had glued the Whisper White cardstock piece onto the inside before going upstairs, I would have noticed it, and may have fixed it then. But once I walked allllll the way upstairs, well, you know. 

I may send it to someone as is (with the white cardstock inside) or I may cut off the front and adhere it to another card base. I’ll decide that when the times comes.

Super Simple Forever Lovely Ghirardelli Square Treat Holder

Today I’m sharing an extremely simple little treat holder. It’s basically a piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) wrapped around a Ghirardelli square, with a die cut heart and stamped sentiment. I made a couple of versions: one with All My Love paper DSP and a Whisper White card stock (CS) heart, and one with Needlepoint Nook DSP and a Very Vanilla CS heart. I stamped the sentiment from the  in Flirty Flamingo ink.

Flowing Fountain for GDP173 Color Challenge

Today’s card is one I made for the Global Design Project color challenge this week. It’s a very subtle card with three soft colors on a field of Whisper White. I used the Flowing Fountain stamp set for the sentiment and the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies for the hearts. Look at the first two photos below. I made the card, then added another stamp to it. Which do you prefer, with or without the extra bird? 

Here’s the GDP173 challenge:

Sweetest Thing Happy Birthday Card

Today I have a very simple card for you. It’s a birthday card made with the Sweetest Thing bundle and How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper. I stamped the label in black ink, then colored in the decorative edges with markers in Coastal Cabana and Melon Mambo. A simple piece of ribbon is the only embellishment. Of course, the paper is so decorative with the cute gumball machines, a lot of embellishment isn’t necessary.

Here’s what I made:
