I’ve been going mad for Papertrey ever since discovering them a few months ago! Honestly, there’s not a single product of theirs that I don’t like – everything is perfect!!
One of the sets I completely fell in love with was the new Cupcake Collection stamp set. This set allows you to build customisable cupcake images in next to no time, with fantastic detail others just wouldn’t think of! I’m sure to be making plenty of cards with these stamps – and a lot more besides, I’m really going to try and think outside the box with this set! In the meantime though here is my first card made with these lovely stamps.
I stamped a variety of designs on Vintage Cream cardstock using a mixture of PTI and Stampin’ Up! colours, with the exception of the rich chocolate frosting which I did with Brilliance Pearlescent Chocolate ink. The bottom right cupcake has just a touch of glitter on it, applied by using a Quickie Glue pen over the stamped heart sprinkles and then applying a light sprinkle of Kars Extra Fine Glitter in ‘Rainbow White’.
The card base started off as white A4 Hammer Card which I folded in half and cut to make a 6″x6″ card blank. I wanted a nice pale blue colour which I achieved by applying Stampin’ Up! Baja Breeze direct-to-paper (card), and when dry inking over repeatedly with Pallette Hybrid in ‘New Canvas’ until I’d obtained the look I wanted.
I cut out each cupcake and adhered to the card base with Pinflair Glue Gel. The sentiment is from the same PTI stamp set, stamped on Vintage Cream cardstock and mounted onto the card using a double helping of Stix2 clear ‘foam’ pads.
