Sweet Cupcakes From Stampin' Up!

I've been busy making some birthday cards and thank you cards over the last week, using the lovely Sweet Cupcake stamp set and Framelits Die. It comes in a bundle and they coordinates beautifully.

There's always birthdays in my family and everyone loves receiving one of my handmade card and I love using a new stamp set. I hadn't used the Sweet Cupcakes stamp set before and I love the fact it comes with great matching Framelits which helps you cut out the cupcakes easily, and includes these lovely words and 10 fabulous die cuts.  So there's no need to fussy cut anything.
Sweet Cupcake
The Sweet Cupcake stamp set is a three step stamping stamp where you use different colours to add different layers and definition to the same stamped image. I used Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride and Flirty Flamingo for the cake section of the cupcake and Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede for the base of the cupcake. I started off with the lightest colour and built up the colour finishing with the darkest one.

I used the lovely Playful Palette Designer Series Paper Stack as a back ground and Flirty Flamingo on the base of the card. The cute sentiments are from the same stamp set, and they are so lovely.

I punched some hearts out of a piece of Dazzling Diamond Glimmer Paper using the Confetti Hearts Border Punch and added it behind the cupcake on the birthday card to give it a wow factor, I think it looks great.

I made a couple of other cards using the same stamp set but this time I swapped the Flirty Flamingo for Sweet Sugarplum ink and paper and swapped the dsp for another of the lovely sheets in the paper stack. You get 48 sheets of 6 x 6 paper so there's lots to choose from.

I also added some of the lovely Sweet Sugarplum co-ordinating ribbon on the thank you card. Which colours do you like the best?

Swirly Bird Stamp Set From Stampin' Up!

Last night I held a fab card making class using the super cute Swirly Bird Stamp Set and Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies. At the class we made 4 super cards using this great bundle.

Swirly Bird Stamp Set Class
The card below was made using the stamp set and Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and Pear Pizzazz ink plus we used the new Copper Embossing Powder to stamp on the card with the super cool Hostess set Time of Year the words Thinking of You. I love the new embossing powder and it makes such a lovely element to the card and give it a real wow factor.   

Swirly Bird Stamp Set

This card uses the new in-colours Dapper Denim and Emerald Envy paper and ink plus some of the new Metallic Enamel Shapes.

Swirly Bird Stamp Set
This card below was made using the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies which come in the Swirly Bird Bundle are so cute and really easy to use. We made this card using Tempting Turquoise card stock and ink. I love the little bird in the stamp set and it was perfect to make this new baby boy card, the sentiment comes from another lovely Stampin' Up! stamp set called Made with Love and it suited this card perfectly.

Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies

Swirly Scribbles
This was the last card we made also using the stamp set and thinlits dies, we used the thinlits dies to make the waves so cute I think. The boat was made with the the stamp set also.    

I think this stamp set and thinlits are very versatile and i will defiantly be using them again, the bonus is it comes with a BUNDLE AND SAVE 10% discount. the item no is 142353 page 152 of the main catalogue and you can order it today and make some great cards with it.

I know your going to love playing with this stamp set and thinlits as it's so versatile. I love the way these easy to make cards come out. I made 5 in no time at all.  

Swirly Bird Stamp Set  

I love the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits in this bundle as they cut beautifully on the Big Shot and pop out with no problem. I just couldn't put the set down and found myself making lots of lovely cards with the bundle here's another one I made don't the die cuts make this card look super cute.

Swirly Scribbles Thinlits  

The sentiment is from Scenic Sayings and I think it's perfect for any occasion.  The Swirly Bird Bundle & Save item 142353 comes with a 10% discount so it works out great value and is on page 152 of the new catalogue.

I made the card by mat and layering the Flirty Flamingo at 14.9 x 10.5 and then placed the Dapper Denim cut at 14.5 x 10.2 on top, then I place some Whisper White on top of that cut at 14 x 9.7 and stamped on the Whisper White I distressed the edges using Flirty Flamingo and cut the dies cuts using my thinlits an hay presto I was done.
