Stamping 411 Create a Cupcake

Time again for Stamping 411 sketch challenge!  Another fun one this week!  Here is the sketch:



And here is my card using Stampin' Up!'s new Create a Cupcake stamp set and Build a Cupcake punch!  I love both these new products in the Occasions Mini!



I started with a  base of Pink Pirouette and layered on the Real Red Patterns Designer Paper, using the Scallop Edge Punch along the bottom.  I added a strip of the FABULOUS Glimmer Paper above the scallop and wrapped some Early Espresso Taffeta Ribbon around and tied a knot. 


For the focal image, I stamped two cupcake bottoms in Early Espresso and added a Real Red stamped bow.  The frosting is Real Red with Early Espresso sprinkles.  I punched them with the Build a Cupcake punch and popped them up with Stampin' Dimensionals on Whisper White cardstock.  I punched the cherry from Red Glimmer Paper, too.  I layered the Whisper White on Early Espresso cardstock.


Finally, I added a trio of the flower Itty Bitty punches from Red Glimmer paper and a Rhinestone Jewel in the center of each.  I also stamped Happy Birthday from Create a Cupcake with Early Espresso in the upper right corner.  I'd love to get a birthday card like this…how about you?


Check out what the rest of the Design Operators did this week over on Stamping 411!

This is just stunning!!  I really love what you did with the cupcake punch.. Because I'm a little anal about crafting… it bugs me (just a little, okay alot) that the stamp set doesnt have scallops on the bottom of the frosting.. I love the way your frosting is above the line of the cupcake..  Does that make sense?  I totally get it.. 😀  This just rocks… 😀

Such an adorable card!  I love the way you used the glitter paper.  I think I may have to CASE this to see how stunning it is in real life!

Your colours, images and layout works perfectly, I particularly like the way the scalloped border echoes the top of the cupcakes.

I love your use of the glimmer paper – just got my cupcake set yesterday – I know I will get a lot of use from that set.

Some friends came over the other night and we made this card – it's adorable and even cuter in real life!  I'm going to be posting it on my blog and will create a link back to your blog unless you have any objections.  Let me know if you do and I will remove it.  Thanks for your wonderful inspiration!
