Stampin’ Up Hello Cupcake

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  We’re back to the cool weather here after the tease last Thursday and Friday.  That really gave me spring fever.  I’m ready for the warm weather.

For today’s card I used one of the cute Sale-A-Brations sets, Hello Cupcake Photopolymer Distinktive Stamp Set.

The colors for my card today went along with the ‘Just Us Girls‘ color challenge #479. Be sure to stop by to play along. Here are their colors.

The sketch I used went along with the Paper Craft Crew challenge #329.  Be sure to stop by to see what everyone has made and to play along.  Here is their sketch.

I started by stamping the cupcake image from the Hello Cupcake stamp set (FREE Sale-A-Bration item), using my Stamparatus, in Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight and Gorgeous Grape Inks on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I then fussy cut the image out using my Paper Snips and set it aside.

On a Whisper White card front I stamped the watermark image from the Stampin’ Up Love What You Do Stamp Set in Daffodil Delight Ink, stamping off once, a couple of times.  I adhered a piece of the Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper, that I had cut out using my Big Shot and the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies, over the watermark image.  I stamped the sentiment from the Hello Cupcake stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock.  Again using my Big Shot, I cut the sentiment out with the second largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies making sure the sentiment was to the right of the oval.  I took a strip of Bermuda Bay cardstock, which I had made a banner from and ran it through my Big Shot using the Scattered Sequins Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (FREE Sale-A-Bration item), and adhered it under the sentiment oval using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the sentiment oval to the card front on top of the DSP oval, off centering it,  using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added some of the Silver Metallic Thread behind the cupcake image and adhered the cupcake to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Glimmer Enamel Dot to the sentiment.  I adhered the card front to a Gorgeous Grape card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the cupcake image from the Hello Cupcake stamp set on a Whisper White panel stamping it the same as I did for the card front except I stamped it off twice to get a very light image.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthday Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink over the cupcake image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Gorgeous Grape card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the cupcake image from the Hello Cupcake stamp set the same as I did for the card front on the front of the envelope.  I adhered a piece of the Brights 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Don’t forget, you have less than 2 weeks before Sale-A-Bration ends.   If you have your eye on one of the gorgeous stamp sets or something from the additional items, grab it before it’s too late.  Happy stamping!!
