Cupcake Birthday

July 29, 2021

Today’s card features a stamp set from the July to December 2021 Mini Catalogue. This stamp set is really lovely and co-ordinates with several other products in the Mini Catalogue and the best part is that it will cover birthdays and Christmas. I actually created two versions of this card, one in Balmy Blue and one in Pale Papaya. I began by cutting Basic White card using the circle die from the Picture This Dies and embossing the panel using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder.

I attached 3cm squares of three different patterns from the Pattern Party 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper behind each of the small circles before attaching the whole panel to another piece of Basic White card. I stamped the cupcake image from the Sweets & Treats stamp set into the three remaining circles in the die cut panel.

I used two different combinations of Stampin’ Blends to colour the cupcakes – Dark Smoky Slate, Light Crumb Cake & Dark Pale Papaya – or – Dark Smoky Slate, Light Crumb Cake and Light Balmy Blue. I attached each of the panels to the co-ordinating card base, either Balmy Blue or Pale Papaya. I stamped the greetings using either Pale Papaya or Balmy Blue ink onto Basic White card and cut them out using the banner die from the Beautiful Trees Dies. I inked the edges of each of the greetings using the co-ordinating ink before attaching them to the card front using dimensionals. To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped another greeting from the Sweets & Treats stamp set onto Basic White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I stamped the cupcake image from the same stamp set beside the greeting using the same ink. I coloured the cupcake images to co-ordinate with the card front before attaching the panel to the inside of the respective card base.

I am loving these stand alone Picture This Dies from the Annual Catalogue. They lend themselves to just about any stamp set you can think of.

Bye for now,
