My card today uses a bundle I have not used in a VERY long time – The Sweet Cupcake Bundle. There are two things I LOVE about this bundle – how yummy and real the cupcakes look because of the two and three step stamping and second, I LOVE all the different combination of sayings you can make using both the stamps and the framelits.
My card starts off with Peekaboo Peach cardstock. Last year when this In-Color came out I was very hesitant, but I quickly became a huge fan. I love how it looks on its own and combined with other colors. Next I took a piece of Watercolor Paper and using an Aqua Painter and Peekaboo Peach ink created a little highlight of a background for my cupcake. I layered this on Mint Macaron cardstock and adhered it to the card.
I created my cupcake using the Sweet Cupcake Bundle. The frosting I stamped full strength Peekaboo Peach, stamped off Peekaboo Peach, and stamped off Crushed Curry. The bottom I created using full strength Emerald Envy, stamped off Emerald Envy, and stamped off Mint Macaron. (By the way, did you notice that I used all In-Colors for my card?) I lightly ran my wet Aqua Painter over both the icing an then the bottom of the cupcake before cutting them out.
Over the highlighted Watercolor Paper, I adhered some Emerald Envy Ruched Ribbon in a zigzag. Before adhering the cupcake using Stampin’ Dimensionals, I wound some Silver Thread behind it.
I stamped the sentiments with Mint Macaron Ink and cut out the “sweet” using the Cupcake Cutouts Framelits and Emerald Envy cardstock. I then adhered some Silver Enamel Shapes around the design.
