Hello Cupcake – Happy Birthday

I created this card for a few challenges.  I wanted to keep the card simple but interesting using a few tools but essentially just Stamp, Ink and Paper.  Enjoy!

Sketch: Paper Players (#564), Theme and Tools: Seize The Birthday (#225) and Color: Color Throw Down (#665).

Here is the result:



  • For the Seize the Birthday Challenge, I selected three Decorative MasksTiny DiamondsAdorning Designs, DotsBasic Patterns and Floral MotifPlenty of Patterns.
  • Panels: (1¼” x 3½”) Basic White cardstock.  Using a Sponge Dauber, the Decorative Mask and Ink Pad, the colors: Blushing Bride (Tiny Diamonds), Pool Party (Dots) and Highland Heather (Floral Motif) were applied through the Stencil on to the panels.
  • Focal Image (Cupcake Shape): Basic White cardstock.  The three images that make up the Cupcake, from the retired Hello Cupcake stamp set: Base Cup, Cake and Icing were stamped with Smoky Slate ink and then colored with Stampin’ BlendsBase Cup – Light Pool Party, Cake – Light Highland Heather and Icing – retired Dark Pink Pirouette.  The image was fussy cut and the Icing was snipped off so that it could be popped up with Dimensionals.
  • Flag Banner: (2¾” x ½”) Pool Party cardstock scrap.  The sentiment, Happy Birthday, from the Timeless Tulips stamp set was stamped with Smoky Slate ink.  The flag was snipped in by hand.
  • All of the elements were adhered to a Smoky Slate card base (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) to match the sketch.

Pretty quick and pretty simple just using the Decorative Masks to add interest and color.
