Hey There Cupcake!
Oh My Gosh!! My cupcakes are here!! My cupcakes are here!! I can't even tell you how much I LOVE the new cupcake set from Stampendous!! It's called Hey There Cupcake, and it's an eP exclusive! Oh, the cupcake possibilities are endless!!!!! I have cupcakes all over my desk ready to be turned into cards.
This is my first card. I learned that cool ribbon accent from my friend and downline Leslie Miller. She is amazing and always knocks my socks off. Use your double slot punch and you get perfect placement for your ribbon. Cool huh? Thanks for sharing Leslie bomb. :)
You make the frame by using your square punches from Stampin'Up! Push the punch all the way in, then punch one square, then move it down and punch another. Always make sure your punch is all the way in so that you get perfect alignment. Do the same with the smaller punch with a different colored card stock, then mat it under the first. The paper piercing around the image is made with my Crafter's Tool Kit (Stampin'Up!). I'm not sure where the ribbon is from.... it was a gift from a friend.
Here is the recipe:
Stamps: Hey There Cupcake (Stampendous), Polka Dot Background (Stampin'Up!)
Paper: Purely Pomegranate, Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White
Ink: Palette Burnt Umber, Copic eSsentials
Other: Square Punches, Word Window Punch, Double Slot Punch, Crafter's Tool Kit, Ribbon, Vintage Brads, Sakura Glitter pen, Unibal White Gel Pen
It's a yicky rainy day today on the OR coast. Perfect weather for staying in and making cupcakes don't ya think? SNORT. Hope you all have a wonderful day, and thanks for stopping by!
