Happy Birthday Cupcake!

Hey Stampers…I’m here!
I wish I could say I’ve been on a beach somewhere holding on to a cute
little drink with an umbrella in it, but, alas, I was not.  I’ve been down and out
with a bad hip and unable to stamp much for over two weeks!  That has to be
a record with no time in the craft room!

I missed sending out a few birthday greetings while watching all that terrible tv…
like this Happy Birthday Cupcake! card, it wasn’t even finished until yesterday,
which also happened to be my friends birthday…oops…good thing she’s a BFF!

Happy Bitthday, Cupcake!

This cupcake is so fun to make!

The three step stamping technique used here really makes it
come out totally yummy…just look at those layers!

Who else loves chocolate frosting on their cupcake?
I feel a baking session coming on.

Happy Birthday, Cupcake! inside of card. Inker's Workshop 2016On the inside, it’s just a toned down version of the cupcake, with the greeting
“Happy Birthday” used ticker tape style across the top and bottom.

It’s stamped on the same Whisper White card stock as the rest of the card, but
for some reason is keeps coming out looking grey in the photo. After several
attempts to fix it, I’ve decided it is what it is… but I still wanted you to see it so
here it is… just imagine it in clean white 🙂

Wait…maybe I should have just wiggled my nose and used a little magic
on it…hehe.

Happy Birthday, Cupcake! belly band design. Inker's Workshop 2016

The Melon Mambo belly band (she loves pink) helps keep this gate fold
card closed. TIP:Try keeping most of the embellishments on the band for
easy removal…I got carried away and added a few extra sequins
without thinking about that, but in this case it still works fine. Phew!

A closer look at those adorable curly cues from the Cupcake Cutout
Framelits…so fun!  They remind me of the white swirl on top of a
famous chocolate cupcake that was a childhood favorite. I always
peeled off the layer of frosting and ate it last…YUM!

Hope you enjoy this Happy Birthday Cupcake!…

  1. Hey,glad to see you back in the craft room……..hope things are progressing well. I just found your blog space a little while ago & was wondering why you weren’t posting anything. Love the card & am looking forward to many more great ideas. Hope things go well for you.

    • Hey,Karen…I’m soooo much better than a month ago, but I can only sit or stand for limited periods of time, which means crafting is done in spurts. That being said, I’m very excited to get back in the craft room and create…anything! I’m glad you like the card, it was made for my friend of over 35 yrs who happens to love pink.

      I hope to be back posting on a regular basis very soon. The next few weeks may be here and there as I recover, but I’ve come a long way baby and I will be back on track in no time!

      Thanks for your kind words, I’m so glad you found my blog!

Got something to say? Leave me a comment...I'd like that!
