Cute Cupcake Birthday Card

I made this card for a swap last month, but I’m just getting around to posting it now. It features Easy Events, an all occasion stamp set with cute line drawn images perfect for coloring.

The card base is Crumb Cake card stock. I used the same color, cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″, and embossed it with the Stripes Embossing Folder and the Big Shot. To give it more dimension, I used Crumb Cake ink and a sponge dauber to highlight the embossed image.

As for the stamped image, I used Versamark ink and black embossing powder on Whisper White card stock, punched with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch. After heat embossing, I colored in the image with various Stampin UP Markers. The frosting on the cupcake was embellished with Dazzling Details.

Behind the stamped image, I made a scalloped circle by cutting 2 So Saffron flowers from the Island Floral Bigz Die and layering them. Be sure to alternate the petals to achieve the scalloped effect. Adhere the scallops together, then the white circle on top. I used stampin dimensionals to attach the scallop to the card front.

The ribbon is 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon in Regal Rose and Daffodil Delight. Tie it around the Embossed Stripes layer, then adhere that to the card base with stampin dimensionals.

Candy Land Birthday Party

Candy Land was the theme for my daughter’s 5th birthday party. She chose it based on both the board game and her extreme love of candy!

First up, the invitation: I used the stamp set Sweets for the Sweet to make the lollipop and candies. The base is 5″x7″ chocolate chip card stock that I gave some texture to using the Big Shot and the Perfect Details Texturz Plate.

The candies were stamped in Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, and Lucky Limeade. I used Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder and Versamark to make some of them sparkle. I wanted them a bit smaller than the lollipop so I used the 3/4″ Circle Punch to cut them down a bit.

As for the lollipop, I stamped it with Daffodil Delight ink and used the Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder on it. A little 1/8″ Taffeta Pretty in Pink Ribbon is knotted and attached with a mini glue dot.

The information was printed on Whisper White card stock. The Candy Land type font is called “Candy Cane” and I downloaded it for free online. Behind the printed information is Pool Party card stock that was die cut using the Big Shot and Scallop Square Bigz Die. It’s attached to the base with stampin dimensionals.

I didn’t have much time to take pictures during the party, but I did manage to take a picture of the candy buffet. I took it with my phone so the picture is not the best quality, but you can see what I did. The little chalk board sign was painted and decorated using various stickers and little lollipop Christmas ornaments.

The lollipop topiary was made using a topiary form (from the floral section of the craft store) and Dum Dum lollipops. Almost 400 lollipops were used to cover the topiary!

Various vases, jars, and containers I had around the house or borrowed from my sister held all the candy. The gingerbread cupcake box was found at Hobby Lobby. I used it for a raffle–the prize being a brand new Candy Land board game. Inside the box, I put slips of paper with the childrens’ names and my daughter pulled the winner.

We still have a lot of candy left over! I’m going to leave the buffet up for a few more days because it makes me smile when I look at it. I suppose a candy buffet in my living room would come in pretty handy with company stopping by, and my daughter certainly won’t complain!

Flirtatious Fabric {Birthday Pennant}

Pennants are everywhere lately. Stampin UP has several birthday stamp sets using pennants, a pennant punch, and I’ve even seen decorating ideas using pennants as cake toppers.

Using the Flirtatious Designer Series Fabric, I came up with several projects using Stampin UP fabric on cards. Being that I’m not into sewing (I can sew a button or fix a hole in a sock, but that’s about it), the cards I made are relatively simple. I treated the fabric as paper, cutting it and adhering it just like card stock.

The above card uses pieces of fabric cut into triangles to create a pennant. I used SNAIL adhesive behind the fabric. It’s easier to put the SNAIL onto the card stock first, then adhere the fabric down. After putting the pennants in place, I glued Linen Thread along the tops of the pennants using Mono Multi Adhesive.

The stamp is from Bring on the Cake, stamped in Basic Black and colored in with coordinating SU Markers. The base is Old Olive, layered with Daffodil Delight and Whisper White. The ribbon along the bottom is Pretty in Pink 1/8″ Taffeta. Below the ribbon, I punched holes using the cropadile to expose the yellow card stock underneath.

I’ll be posting more projects using the Flirtatious Designer Fabric so stay tuned…
