SC386 Crazy for Cupcakes

Wow!  It has been a LONG time since I played along with a SCS sketch challenge!  I really wanted to post a card on my blog today, so I went there to check it out.



Based on the sketch, I decided to flip it and use a retiring set, Crazy for Cupcakes!  It worked out perfectly!  I also used up some more of my Big Top Birthday Designer Paper!  lol!



The base of the card is Whisper White.  I layered on Tempting Turquoise.  I cut the Big Top Birthday Designer Paper stripe for the bottom…love the bright cheerful colors in this DSP!  Then I punched out a 2 1/2" Circle of the star pattern.  I wrapped the Real Red Satin Ribbon around and tied a knot.  (I'll be sad to see the Satin Ribbons go away…they are so easy to work with and tie.)  I stamped the cupcake stand in Black Stazon on Whisper White and watercolored with my AquaPainter and Stampin' Write Markers in Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight and Basic Gray.  I added the greeting across the top.  As a final touch, I added a trio of Rhinestone Jewels around the circle.

Don't delay in getting the retiring products you want!  They go away next week…May 31st is the LAST DAY TO ORDER!

As an added incentive…anyone that places a $50 or more online order from me, I'll mail you all the supplies to make this fun Note Card Skinny Tin with belly band that holds 4 note cards and envelopes, along with directions!  This was a popular project at my Reveal Party earlier this month! 

Sorry, stamped images not included per Stampin' Up! guidelines.  Offer only good while supplies last or May 31, 2012!  One per person, please.

What a great card!  I just love the layout & bright colors.  Tempting turquoise & red are such a great combination.  Think I'll be using this layout myself for some fun cards.
