Hello Cupcake
by Marybeth Lopez

Hello sweet friends ! Happy June to you all!

I would like to say this was a simple card to make ( It should have been) but I had many mishaps along the way. I kept going and I am happy with the results in the end.

I used Poppystamps :Whittle Cupcake die,  Luscious Script Hello and Flower Garden Clear stamp.

One thing that was easy was using some scraps of alcohol ink papers I made, that I saved. I die cut twice for the colors then just layered the extra pieces on top of the other, to firm it up a bit.

Below are some of my first try alcohol ink papers, didn't really know what I was doing. I  used all kinds of paper, even photo paper because its what I had.  I saved them anyway and glad I did because they work great for dies.

For a little extra detail on my panel I scored it all the way around 1/2 inch.  

One of the mishaps at the end was getting a tiny bit of ink on my hand that then ended up on the panel, I was able to use an ink eraser to get it off.

It was late in the day an I didn't have the best lighting for my photo.

I also used some of the leftover papers as shown above for the top layer of the hello then stamped with the sentiment from Flower Garden. I used the cupcake to represent sweet friend. I couldn't resist adding a bit of chunky glitter to the top of the cupcake.

Sprinkled With Love
by Donna Peachey

If you know someone who likes the occasional sweet treat, perhaps this quick and easy make is for you!

Here's a quick 'how to' guide...

FullSizeRender

Start by creating the background using the smaller of the two dies in the Deco Victor Square set.

You'll be using the die cut as a stencil.  I've used temporary spray adhesive to hold my dies in place whilst I add the Distress Oxide ink.

As you can see, I've also added water splashes and dried them off before removing the die cuts.

Next, cut out the dies you will need and glue them together.

I've chosen the 'Sprinkled With Love' sentiment from the cute Donut What I'd Do set, stamped it on Heat Resistant acetate and then heat embossed it using clear embossing powder.  

(Don't forget to use your anti static pad or it's equivalent first).

As my Heat Resistant acetate is quite flimsy I decided that a second layer from scrap packaging was needed.  Here's a photo that shows what that looks like...

Before gluing everything into position the acetate needs to be cut to size...  which means folding and securing one end over the donuts.

As you can see, I've used a small staple to attach the two layers, then secured it in place with a piece of red liner tape.

I've also cut out an extra donut shape from scrap packaging, trimmed it down and attached that as shown to offset the height of the staple. 

The donut hole came in handy, too!  I added an extra layer after this photo was taken and a small piece of red liner tape right along the bottom edge of the cupcake.

Here's the finished card again...  with the length of the acetate strip adjusted.  That small piece of red liner tape under the Whittle Cupcake stops it from escaping!

Hope you've enjoyed seeing my fun make!

Thank you so much for stopping by today.
