1/21 Stampin' Up Create a Cupcake with Sparkle!

Isn't this card FUN? I just love it . . . I think it has a bit of a retro look, don't you? I've got Cupcake Love going on at my house. The new Build a Cupcake Punch and the Create a Cupcake stamp set seem to be on my workspace 24/7. How can you put something away when it is that cute?!! I recently held a scrapbook workshop at my home and had a few extra strips of Tasteful Trim sitting around. I started playing with it and before you know it I had the cutest card! I used circles from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack to make the little red balls for a fun and whimsical accent along the top of the card.

The fluffy part of the cupcake is super sparkly. I used a layer of Versa Mark on Whisper White paper, sprinkled on some Heat and Stick powder, used a heat tool to make it glossy and then sprinkled on some Dazzling Diamond Glitter, heated it again to set it and used the Build a Cupcake Punch to make the fluffy topping. The little tray that the cupcake is resting on is made from the Scalloped Oval Punch with an oval layer of Very Vanilla above that. That little tiny cherry is also from the Build a Cupcake punch. See how much fun this punch is? You just don't want to stop playing with it!

The inside of the card is also decorated. I used some tasteful trim along the bottom and punched my sentiment out with an oval punch. So much easier than than stamping directly onto your card and you can be sure that you've got the words straight! The sweet little flower accent is part of the Create a Cupcake stamp set. Hope you enjoyed looking it over . . . I sure had fun making it!!
