Cupcakes and Cards

Here's another card using one of the sale sets for this month - Big Bold Birthday! Cupcakes are everywhere in stamping lately - so to celebrate Stampin' Up!'s 20th birthday, what better way than to enjoy some cupcakes and stamp some too!
Here's a quick pic of the cupcakes I made for Wednesday nights gathering. Chocolate. Yum!
And here's the cupcake we stamped! All the images are from Big Bold Birthday - there are so many stamps in this set and they can be used in so many ways! The icing sprinkles were created by "kissing" the inked polka dot image onto the icing image before stamping, cutting out and popping up on dimensionals.

I love using my slit punch to create a scalloped edge for a card like this - it adds a real touch of whimsy to any project.

The supplies for this card are included in October's Beautiful Bundle - which I've just now posted. There are TWO stamp sets in the bundle this month - 25 stamps!!! Click here for all current bundles.
