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.

  1. Oh she is mega cute and I love your card. The white really pops against the kraft card base and the paper piecing is fabulous. Thanks for playing at AAA Cards.

  2. This is adorable, Diana. Although I love the white pattern paper piecing, unfortunately, this is considered a layer and would not qualify for our OLC challenge. I’ve made that mistake myself. On the bright side, this is a 2-week challenge, so there is plenty of time to enter again. Thank you so much for sharing with us at Less is More in collaboration with AAA Cards.

    • Thanks Trina! I can see why the paper piecing can be seen as an added layer but the clothes were just too cute to leave off ;-). I will definitely remember for future challenges. Thanks again for your nice comment! 🙂

  3. Such a super card Diana and the image is really adorable. As Trina says, it is such a shame that the paper piecing means this isn’t a one layer card but I’m so glad that I got to see this little beauty though because your choice of paper does suit the kraft card base. I too made the same mistake in the past – it’s so easily done. I do hope you will join us again at Less is More in future challengesxx

    • Thank you for your lovely comment! I totally understand that the paper piecing can be seen as an added layer but the clothes were just too cute to leave off ;-). I will definitely remember for the future though. Thanks again!

I'd love to hear from you!
