Birthday Cupcakes

Here is the card I stamped as my 'thank you' card for all my customers who placed a Stampin' Up! order with me in October. I also stamped another 14 of these cards for a swap with my friends and fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators on Stamp Addicts - a website forum and gallery showcasing Stampin' Up! stamps and products.

This little cupcake image is from Voila! - a chef stamp set. I stamped the cakes in Jet Black StazOn ink onto Whisper White card stock. I added some color with my Stampin' Up! Markers - Tempting Turquoise, Rose Red and Summer Sun. Then I used the 1 1/4" Circle Punch to punch them all out. I added some glue with my Two Way Glue Pen to the candle flame and covered it with the White Chunky Glitter. This is layered onto a Rose Red mat punched with the 1 3/8" Circle Punch and then onto the Green Galore mat punched with the Scallop Circle Punch. For most of the cards I added Paper Piercing to each of the scallops of the circle, but I see that this particular card missed out. :)

For the sentiment banner, I stamped the 'happy birthday' sentiment from All Holidays onto a narrow strip of Whisper White card stock. Then I used the My Way (arrow) Punch to create the banner tips. This is layered onto a mat of Rose Red cardstock, again using the My Way Punch to create the banner tips. The Rose Red designer series paper is a pattern from Thoroughly Modern DSP layered onto a mat of Basic Black. I punched a row of Paper Piercing to this strip, using every two holes of my Mat Pack and added three Black Brads to the right side. Lots of Stampin' Dimensionals and the card is done.

For the inside of this card I just layered a very narrow strip of Green Galore card stock onto a mat of Basic Black and adhered this across the bottom of the inside.
