News of the Year-End Close Out is at the end.
When a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators gets together, you can bet we are going to make swaps to pass out. We love getting samples for different sets. Since I have some new stuff, of course I wanted to use it! Who doesn't want sampless with new stuff! I love being a demonstrator and having the opportunity to get new product before others. The set I used today is part of the Sale-a-Bration offerings beginning January 3rd. It's called Hello Cupcake. Here's my card.
Now you probably have not seen the inside of the Sale-a-Bration brochure and right now, I can't show it to you. I will say that my card closely resembles the sample on page 6. I don't know about you, but sometimes I need a little help with ideas. Catalogs are a great source for that! I have made a few changes.
Start with a card base of Highland Heather cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4. Stamp a few of the sprinkles on the base near the edges in Gorgeous Grape.
The next layer is 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 and is also Highland Heather. I set up the three sayings in the set on my Stamparatus so that I could use hinge stamping. Stamp in Gorgeous Grape. I did go down two hinge spaces each time. I went back and added the sprinkles stamp in the empty spaces. To help this layer stand out, sponge around the outside with Gorgeous Grape. Add to the card with dimensionals.
For the cupcake, I used Crumb Cake for the base. The other layers are Lemon-Lime Twist, Blushing Bride, and Balmy Blue. Stamp in the same color as the paper. You will have to fussy cut these parts. Let me give you a hint. You can't see the tops of the Lemon-Lime Twist and Blushing Bride. Don't worry about cutting that little swirl. Add all the parts with dimensionals.
Stamp the saying in Gorgeous Grape and trim around. Add with dimensionals, but only tape where it covers the cupcake base. Add a Linen Thread bow with a rolled up glue dot.
The inside is simple and easy. Just stamp. It's all from Hello Cupcake!
