Cupcake for the Hostess

There is a Hostess set in the upcoming catalog that I was able to preorder called A Cherry on Top. I was drawn to it immediately but when I actually tried to use it, I couldn’t come up with much! I have ideas for it, so I’ll keep working with it until my vision matches what’s on the paper in front of me.

For this card, I used Old Olive as the base and one of my favorite papers Summer Smooches DSP. The color scheme for this card is bright and cheery: Old Olive, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, and Whisper White.

I stamped the cupcake in Melon Mambo ink on Whisper White, and cut it out. Then, I stamped the cupcake wrapper on Crumb Cake with Crumb Cake ink and cut it out. For the dome lid, I inked up the stamp with Pool Party ink, then stamped off once on scrap paper. Without cleaning the stamp or reinking it, I stamped it on Whisper White card stock for a lighter effect. Then, I traced over it with a glue pen and added Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. After trimming it out, I adhered the cupcake pieces to the lid piece.

For the background, I ran Whisper White through the Big Shot with the Stripes Textured Embossing Folder. Then, I layered it on Melon Mambo card stock and attached my cupcake display with stampin dimensionals.

The cake base is stamped in Daffodil Delight, cut out and I wrapped some 1/4″ Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon in Daffodil Delight around it for some detail.

For the sentiment, I used my Markers to ink up a stamp from Happiest Birthday Wishes. I matted it on Daffodil Delight card stock and layered it onto a strip of Old Olive 5/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon.
