Stampin’ Up! Crazy for Cupcakes Retiring II

Just one more week to order retiring stamp sets!  Click here to get the complete list.

I have loved the Crazy for Cupcakes stamp set.  I can’t decide what image I like best from this set.  The cupcake stand probably wins.  I really love decorating those little cupcakes and frankly it’s a whole lot easier to decorate a fun card with this cute stand than it is to bake all those cupcakes to decorate a true cupcake stand.  Not to mention that the card is a little easier on the figure!!!

Here’s a couple of more Crazy for Cupcakes card samples:

Here’s the detail. Can you see the glitter and shine?

These colorful balloons are stamped on pattern paper and then pieced onto the card to make this clean and simple birthday wish.

Order your Crazy for Cupcakes stamp set.

Crazy for Cupcakes Retiring

These Crazy for Cupcakes cards that I made were part of a card kit offered through my upline a few years ago – another perk of being a demonstrator.  This set is just so fun with it’s celebration balloons and the cute cupcake stand. Here’s a picture of the details featuring ‘cherry’ beads and crystal effects that gives the frosting a slick, shiny look and acts as an adhesive for the beads.

Stampin’ Up! Congratulations

This masculine congratulations card is going out to my son-in-law, who recently graduated from college.   It’s the companion to this feminine congrats card here.  The versatile pack of  Pocketful of Posies Designer Series Paper (retiring May 31st) contains both fabulously feminine patterns and magnificently masculine prints like this one.

The trick to this layered tag is layering the Perfect Punches congratulations on the Baja Breeze Extra-Large Oval created with the ‘happy birthday’ stamp from the same stamp set.

How’d I do that?  Tip: Using the brush end of the Early Espresso marker I colored just the outline of the stamp and stamped on the Baja Breeze, before punching it out with the Extra-Large Oval Punch.

 
Card Recipe:
Stamp Set: Perfect Punches #117022 wood-mount, #120516 clear-mount
Paper: Pocketful of Posies dsp #122354 (retiring), Baja Breeze card stock #111352, Whisper White card stock #100730, Early Expresso card stock #119686

Extras:  Modern Label Punch #119849, Extra-Large Oval Punch #119859, Jumbo Brads #112533

Clean and Simple Butterflies

This clean and simple butterfly card was a snap to design and create with the Big Shot Die-Cutting MachineBrayering the embossed Whisper White card stock with Baja Breeze makes the embossed design really pop!

The Rhinestones are always just the right touch to finish off the butterflies.  Tip:  I lift these self-adhesive rhinestones off the sheet with the tip of the paper piercing tool.  And I use the strips of connected to rhinestones when I need a few in a row.  Quick and easy without having to line all those little baby’s up!

Can you see the texture in the Baja Breeze embossed panel?

Lots of great texture in this simple card.
