Sweet Cupcake

Hello and welcome,

This cupcake from the Sweet Cupcake stamp set (#p141498) is stamped using the Two-step method which allows you to get the different colours or tones.


The base of the cup cake was stamped onto Crushed Curry card (#131288) using Crushed Curry ink (#131173), then Daffodil Delight ink (#126944), followed by So Saffron ink (#126957). The stamps are marked 1, 2 and 3 and I find stamping them in this order is the easiest. The photopolymer stamps make it easy to align the images. The icing was stamped on Whisper White card (#106549) using Daffodil Delight and So Saffron inks. Then I stamped the last image with VersaMark (#102283) and Gold Embossing Powder (#109129). For the icing I stamped No 2 first, then 3, then 1. The base and top of the cupcake are both cut with the co-ordinating Cupcake Cutouts Framelits (#141474). Of course these are available as a bundle (#142232) with a 10% saving. The circles are cut with the Layering Circles Framelits (#141705). The greeting is stamped with Daffodil Delight ink and the banner with Crushed Curry ink. The Birthday Banners stamp set (#p141506) is where you will find these stamps. With these photopolymer stamps I have been able to curve the greeting to match the shape of the banner.   Tip: Stamp the banner first, then the greeting, then cut the banner with the Framelits. This framelit is from the Bunch Of Banners Framelits (#141488). The Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate (#141653) has been used for the background and attached to the Whisper White base card. Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430) were used to attach the banner and icing.
