Hi everyone! I hope you are doing well. I am trying to keep busy. I recently purchased this really fun birthday stencil and Cupcake Stamp and Die Set from Hero Arts and Since I belong to a FB card group I needed to get my September Birthday cards made and mailed out.
I love Cupcakes? and Cupcake cards. Don’t you? I couldn’t resist this stamp and die set called Color Layering Cupcake. I first used the Hero Arts Stencil called Streamer onto Neenah Solar white 80lb. cardstock. I cut my sheet of cardstock in four panels. I placed each panel down and placed my stencil over it. I had fun using different color combinations using Catherine Pooler bundle dye inks.
After my backgrounds, I used the Cupcake layering stamp and die set in colored inks to match my backgrounds. I did stamp the cupcake wrapper in black to try it out, that has a cool look to it too. The layering was so much fun. On some I used a brown ink for the cake of the cupcake to show and some for it not to show. I would cut them out with the coordinating die set after. I did have two extra cupcakes and cherries so I made those with a with background.
my backgrounds were cut out using a Diagonal Stitched Rectangle die from Pinkfresh Studio. I also used a Circle die to match. I stamped the ones with a stenciled background with the sentiment on the circle with a curved look using my Mist Stamping Platform. On the other two circle diecuts I stamped the sentiment onto the panel and added some sprinkles on one for fun. I glued and used foam to back some of my panels especially the ones with polka dot ribbon. I like the ribbon and I always forget to use it. I decided just to add some sprinkles on some cards. I chose for no embellishments on these cards. All my panels were added to a A2 card base. I hope you like my Birthday Cupcake cards. I kinda want to make more to have a bunch for my stash.
