Sweet Cupcake

Stampin' Up! Sweet Cupcake- from Kim's Card Class

I'm sharing a "Sweet Cupcake" card that we made at my card class this week. Its a simple and "sweet" card and super easy to make.

I've featured a couple other cupcake cards on my blog in the last couple of weeks, but this one is totally different and stamped in a whole new color. I love that this is a 3 step stamp, which means that the images are layered on top of each other to provide dimension and depth. I also love that the stamps in this set are numbered so that we know which image to stamp 1st, 2nd and 3rd.


I also used the new "Diagonal Stripe" background stamp. This stamp is a stampers staple- it can be used on any type of card, and stamped in any color. Its a must have!

Here's a close up of the detail of the icing on the cupcake. We used the "Wink of Stella Brush" in clear to give the icing some shimmer. Looks good enough to eat, doesn't it?


Again, I was so busy visiting and helping a full class of stampers, and I forgot to take people pictures. If you are attending the next class, please remind me to take stamping stamper photos. Photos or not, we always have a great time at Kim's Card Class.

I'll post another card or two from class in the next few days.

Until then...

Keep on Stampin' and Come back soon!

How about a super fun, super happy, super colorful cupcake today?

I went all "over the rainbow" stamp-happy, for this cheerful birthday cupcake card.

I used the new "Sweet Cupcake" stamp set, again (cuz I love it!) to make this super yummy, sparkly, rainbow cupcake birthday greeting.

Of course I used all of the colors of the rainbow. This stamp set happens to be a "3" step stamp set, which means the image is stamped in "3" layers. Each layer is stamped over top the previous stamped image to create dimension, shading and depth.

For this card, I inked the first layer of icing ( the boldest stamp first) in daffodil delight. Then before I stamped it onto the whisper white cardstock, I used a sponge dauber to add more colors of ink onto the stamp itself. I dabbed on pacific point ink and cucumber crush ink. I then used the next layer of icing (these stamps are numbered, btw) in pumpkin pie and the final layer in real red.

Makes a rainbow bright- looks good enough to eat- super happy cupcake, don't you think?


For the cupcake bottom, I used cucumber crush, emerald envy and pacific point, in that order.


For the "sparkle" I used dazzling diamonds glitter. It looks like the pretty sugar crystals that we use to decorate our sugar cookies and cupcakes with when we bake them at home. The "cherry" on top is a heart from the bold brights "Enamel Shapes" embellishments.


If you look closely, you'll see that I stamped a birthday candle inside this special card. The candle was stamped in cucumber crush and pacific point and the flame is daffodil delight and pumpkin pie inks.


I stamped happy birthday in basic black archival ink- then cut it apart and layered it onto real red and cucumber crush cardstock pieces that I hand cut to give it a quirky and fun appeal. The "Sparkle" emboss folder on the daffodil delight cardstock background also adds to the quirkiness of this cool card.


Kinda looks like cotton candy too, doesn't it?

Who wouldn't love getting this yummy looking card for their birthday? I know I wouldn't mind at all!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today- I appreciate it!

Until the next time...

Stampin' Up! Sweet Cupcake

Today I'm sharing a sweet cupcake birthday card. In fact, that is exactly what the stamp set is called- "Sweet Cupcake."

This set also has a coordinating die set called, Cupcake Cutouts Framelits. For this card, I stamped a really simple random background of cupcakes. This is a 3-step stamp set so I was able to use the stamps to layer on the color and create shading and dimension on the cupcakes.

I used sahara sand, tip top taupe and soft suede inks for the cupcake "cup." The icing is sweet sugarplum for the first layer- but I stamped off first. Which means that I inked the stamp and then stamped it on scratch paper ( to get a lighter shade of sweet sugarplum) then immediately stamped it on the card. The next layer is sweet sugarplum full strength ( no stamping off) and the 3rd layer is rich razzleberry.


I used the sahara sand ink to add the tiny sprinkles to the background. "Make A" - is stamped in tip top taupe ink, "Big" is stamped in rich razzleberry and "Wish" is stamped in tip top taupe  as well.


I added the "Enamel Shapes" stars in sweet sugarplum, to the bow and around the greeting.


Don't forget the inside! The candles were also stamped in sweet sugarplum and rich razzleberry inks.


Sweet sugarplum and tip top taupe cardstocks frame the outside of the card. Lastly, I added a bow with the sweet sugarplum ruched ribbon and white bakers twine. I'm not sure why this ribbon photographed in such and odd color, but it does match the ink perfectly in real life :)


I hope you enjoyed my "Sweet Cupcake" birthday card. I can't wait to make more, the cupcakes look so real and yummy. I love it!

Thanks for stopping by today.

Until the next time...
