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.

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?
