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

Only 5 days left and this "Hello Cupcake" set will be retiring.  I am hanging on to mine for a while longer since I did purchase the matching dies. I plan to make more cards in the near future.  What's sad about the Sale-a-Bration ending soon is that I have not played with the sets as much as I would have liked to. I just get too many and then end up picking a few and stick with them.  I always tell myself, no more than 4 new Sale-a-Bration sets.  It doesn't work. I didn't listen as a child, why would I listen now?  LOL

This was a fun and easy card to make.  The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock. On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Melon Mambo card stock.  And then a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Whisper White card stock goes on top of that one.  Before that piece was taped on I stamped the "sprinkles" image on the right corners of the panel using Melon Mambo ink.

I cut a 1-3/4" piece of the Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Garden Impressions" 6" x 6" pack.  I did cut that piece so I could make two more cards.  I tend to put pieces back in the package and never use them again.  I taped the DSP to the Whisper White piece that has the sprinkles in the corners.

With the thought of making more cards using the DSP, I decided to take out my Stamparatus and stamp the cupcake pieces using it.  I cut three 2-3/8" x 3-7/8" pieces of Whisper White.  I set it up in the Stamparatus and stamped the cupcake bottom using Soft Suede ink. I stamped the other two pieces when I was done with the first one.  Then I stamped the "cake" part using So Saffron ink. I repeated this on the other two pieces.  The "frosting" was stamped using Melon Mambo ink.  I stamped the other two pieces.  And lastly I stamped the sprinkles and the words at the same time.  Both were done using Early Espresso ink.  I stamped the other two and I had 3 cards ready to put together and very quickly too!

I taped the Whisper White piece with the Melon Mambo sprinkles in the corners on top of the Melon Mambo piece of card stock.  I taped those two layers to the card base.  Next I taped the cupcake image to the 2-1/2" x 4" piece of Melon Mambo card stock.  I set those layers in place using Dimensionals.  

This is a very quick and easy card to make.  Now I'm off to tape the other two together!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

What a sweet card (pun intended), Wanda. I have this set but haven't inked it. Your card is my inspiration. I agree about getting too many sets and only using a few. Enjoy your day!
