There are several birthdays coming up so I made up several birthday cards. I used my new cupcake stamp set from Stampendous. It's an acrylic set and acrylics and I do not get along. I don't like the feel of acrylics, the way they stamp, they are hard to clean, and easy to lose. Even the best point of acrylics, seeing where you are stamping, doesn't work for me. I still can't line them up. Give me wood mounted any day! I know some of you love acrylics and that's great for you. They just don't work for me. Anyways, on to the card.
I used some designer paper from the cupcake designer paper pack from Target. I never found this in the store but my friend, Kristina, gave it to me for my birthday. Grin. The card base is a 6 x6 Tempting Turquoise square folded in half. I stamped the cupcakes in Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose, Tempting Turquoise, and Gable Green and then punched them out with the 1 3/8" circle punch. Then I mounted the circles on the chocolate chip circle scallops and paper pierced each scallop. These were mounted on stampin' dimensionals. There is some green polka dot ribbon running along the middle of the card underneath the images.
I'll have to work with this set a bit more to get the hang of it. I love the images I just need to get better at lining them up.
Have a great day everyone!
