Hello Cupcake, Birthday Card, 2019 Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration

Today is my younger sister's birthday.  You all know I have cards in my stash but I always feel I need to make a "fresh" card when I need one.  Though there are times I have used cards in my stash.

Today's card was made using the "Hello Cupcake" set and the matching die.  It's too bad this is a Sale-a-Bration set and will be retiring 8 days.  I've had a lot of fun with this set and I will be hanging onto mine for a while.  I find it versatile. I can use it for adults or children.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  On top of that is a 2-1/8" x 4-1/4" piece of Melon Mambo Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the Brights 6" x 6" pack.  I taped that piece in place on the right.

I had added some Wink of Stella on the frosting piece.  The Wink of Stella caused the ink to bleed, which was a good thing, it made the frosting look more pink in the white areas.  I tried to stay away from the Early Espresso sprinkles, I didn't want the brown to get into the pink.

I die cut a "Stitched Oval" using the largest die in the pack. I die cut it using Melon Mambo card stock.  Then I die cut the largest scalloped oval using Basic Black card stock. I taped those two layers together and taped them to the front of the card. 

Then I stamped the cupcake bottom using Crumb Cake ink. The "cake" part was stamped using So Saffron ink and the frosting was stamped using Melon Mambo. I added some "sprinkles" using Early Espresso ink. I die cut all three pieces out.

I taped the "cake" part to the cupcake bottom. The cupcake bottom is on top of the "cake" part.  I taped those two pieces in place on the oval.  I added the frosting piece using Dimensionals.

The words are from the "Hello Cupcake" set and I stamped them using black Memento ink.  And that was it.  This was a fun and easy card to make.  

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
