I think this design is my way of wishing for the sunshine and warmth of spring to arrive. It’s been weirdly cold here in February and March, we’ve even had snow this month, very odd for Portland, Oregon. My share today is my Sale-a-bration “Hello Cupcake Celebrate Your Day!” design.
Derek and I were walking in the mall and I saw this fun kid’s t-shirt. It had a rainbow cupcake on the front. It was just the right inspiration. The bright colors made me smile and feel warm inside. Another great part to this design was deciding what rainbow colors to use.
First, I embossed the Bermuda Bay, Lemon Lime Twist, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Poppy Parade with the Subtle Embossing Folder, Then I layered them onto the Whisper White base.
Second, the cupcake was placed on top of the Whisper White rectangle that I embossed with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder. Also, I rounded the two opposing corners to soften the overall look.
Next, the cupcake wrapper was stamped in Smoky Slate ink and colored with the same colors as the strips listed above. I trimmed the “shadow” from the cupcake shape to clean up the look. The “frosting” is Whisper White cardstock stamped with VersaMark, then heat embossed with White embossing powder. I was going for a shiny frosting look. What do you think?
I was so happy when I found that Stampin’ Up! created the Call Me Cupcake Framelits die set. It is even more amazing that it coordinates with the Hello Cupcake Sale-a-bration stamp set. Woohoo! I’m one of those funny people that doesn’t mind fussy cutting, I find it relaxing. My ladies are always happy when they get to use a coordinating die or punch instead of fussy cutting. Lol!
To finish things off I added the “Celebrate Your Day!” another of the sweet sentiments also from the Hello Cupcake Sale-a-bration Stamp Set. After I started designing with this set I found it amazing versatile. This stamp set has fabulous sentiments as well fun cupcake building shapes.
