A Whole Lot of Lovely

I’m loving the DSP on offer from Stampin’ Up! of late and though the foiled ones are my absolute favorite, I think the Whole Lot of Lovely DSP is so pretty and made for the perfect backdrop for this first birthday card. I especially love the crisp colour scheme of this paper.

The sentiment and roses were stamped from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set and my beautiful powder pink bear comes from A Little Wild which is available in a bundle with the matching framelits.  The tag itself was punched using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and the number 1 was die cut from some dazzling diamonds glimmer paper using the Large Numbers Framelits Dies.  I used the gorgeous powder pink shimmer ribbon and black bakers twine for the tag with some sparkly black rhinestones to complete the look.

Sweet Cupcake

I’ve previously blogged about Sprinkles of Life stamp set (which by the way I still love and is still available in the current catalogue!) but today it’s all about the brand new Sweet Cupcake photopolymer stamp set & matching cupcake cut out Framelits dies.

Oh I how love this new cupcake set! and don’t forget you can purchase both the stamp set and framelits together in a bundle to save 10%.  This was my first play with the set and I decided to go for a clean, contemporary look. I started by watercolouring my shimmery white cardstock background with melon mambo by filling an empty wink of stella pen with water and using it in place of an aqua painer for a high shimmer watercoloured look. I then flicked melon mambo ink on top for a bit of dimension.  While I left my card front to dry, I stamped my three step cupcake topper in wisteria wonder & elegant eggplant, and the cupcake case in crumbcake ink with a touch of early espresso for definition.


My words were stamped from the same stamp set in rich razzleberry ink.  Finally I cut my stamped cupcake images out with the matching Framelits along with my ‘Wish’ which was cut from dazzling diamonds glimmer paper. I adhered some silver metallic thread to the watercoloured panel, placed my cupcake pieces on dimensionals on top of that, and glued my ‘wish’ on top using the fine tip glue pen.  A couple of white perfect accent embellishments and a thin rich razzleberry border to finish, and card complete.  Love this card, hope you do too 💞💞💞
