My Favorite Things Cupcake Day — Happy Birthday Cupcake!

Hi Guys! Today I’m sharing a card I made with My Favorite Things Cupcake Day stamps and die-namics. This little cutie is perfect for coloring and she comes with three sweet sentiments. I also added a fun decorative bottom to my card with pattern paper and a scallop edge die-namic.

I used the scallop edge die-namic to cut off a bit of the bottom front of an A2 card base. Then I cut a piece of pattern paper to 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 and adhered it to the inside front of the card with the pattern facing out. Because the back of the pattern paper is white and it is cut to A2 size, it blends in seamlessly with the card base when the card is opened.

I stamped the cupcake girl and her balloon in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Copic friendly paper and cut them out with the coordinating die-namics. I colored them in with Copic markers and used a white gel pen to add a white highlight to the balloon.

COPIC COLORS: RV02, RV04, RV09, Y13, Y15, Y19, BG11, BG13, E00, E11, E13, R20, Y11, E30, E23 

I stamped the sentiment directly on the card front with my MISTI, attached the little girl with foam adhesive for added dimension, and finished it off with some retired Stampin’ Up! Candy dots.

I really love the way the decorative bottom turned out on this card and I will definitely be using this technique more often!

My Favorite Things Cupcake Day – CAS Challenges

Hey Guys! Today I made a clean and simple card with My Favorite Things Cupcake Day stamp set and die-namics. Clean and simple cards are uncluttered with plenty of white space and minimal embellishments. The focal point of your card definitely plays the starring role and this cute little cupcake girl is certainly enjoying the stage!

I am also playing along with the AAA Challenge and Less is More Challenge. These two challenge sites have teamed up for one Clean and Simple Challenge — Create a single layer CAS card on a colored card base.

For my card, I started with an A2 card base made of Neenah Desert Storm 100# cardstock. Using the MISTI stamping tool, I stamped my image and sentiment directly on the card base in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

TIP: Using a stamp positioning tool like the MISTI is very helpful when stamping directly on your card base. It allows you to position your stamps exactly where you want them and if any images don’t stamp perfectly clear the first time, you can re-stamp with no problem.

To add some interest to my stamped image, I added patterned paper to the dress and balloon. I simply stamped them on pattern paper, cut them out and glued them in place. I also added white gel pen to the shoes and cupcake.

La-La Land Crafts Birthday Gift Molli

Hey guys! I’ve been doing some coloring! This is Birthday Gift Molli and she’s by La-La Land Crafts. Isn’t she a cutie! This stamp is available in both cling mount rubber and as a digi stamp. I used the cling mount for my project.

I’ve never used digi stamps on my cards but I may be tempted to get some soon. The immediate gratification of a download sounds pretty good right now and the cute little characters from La-La Land are perfect for coloring with Copics — I confess, I might be addicted to Copic markers!  I don’t know why I waited so long to purchase them.

The only drawback to the La-La Land stamps — no dies — and you all know how much I dislike fussy cutting. This Mollie is cut by hand but I have a plan for future cutting!

My friend, Linda just got a Brother ScanNCut and she let me come over and play with it. That thing is AMAZING! It cuts out a whole sheet of stamped images in record time and you have the option of cutting right to the line or leaving a white border. It is definitely going on my crafty wish list!

After I cut and colored Molli, I needed to give her a place to sit so drew a line with a ruler and a marker on a piece of white cardstock that I cut with a stitched rectangle die. I attached the stitched rectangle to piece of slightly larger green cardstock and attached that to an A2 card base. Lastly I used foam adhesive to place Molli as if she was sitting on the gray line.

TIP:  As small as it seems, that gray line is actually pretty important; without it she’d be awkwardly sitting in mid air.

I would like to tell you the exact colors I used today but I’m just not sure which markers I grabbed. In the future I will try to keep a list. I would also like to improve my hair coloring technique. So if you have any tips or know of a good tutorial leave me a comment!

Today’s card is entered in the Seize the Birthday Challenge.
