Hello and welcome to another new week full of inspiration and fun. What has your week been like? I’m back at school where I work 4 days a week. Start of the year is always hectic and each day zooms by. Cassidy started Year 10 and is now in Senior School, so she’s s got a full year ahead of her. 

Today’s project started off with my choice of a colour – Pineapple Punch. I felt I had neglected it and hadn’t shown it much love at all so I wanted to feature it on my card. I then worked out some colours around it and came up with this colour combination.

The stamp I have chosen is the fun Hello Cupcake from Sale-A-Bration. and you can earn this free with any $90 purchase. This is such a cute set with some fun sentiments.

Basic

I created the border for the card with the edge of the cupcake stamp. The design, when stamped alongside each other reminds me of an ice cream truck. Some simple stamping and an addition of Designer Series Paper (DSP) is all you need to complete this quick and easy card. 

 
Intermediate

I stepped this card up by adding a layer in Gorgeous Grape. Then I fussy cut the icing. I stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso on this card as I felt there was a bit too much purple hues and I needed to balance it up. 

 
Advanced

I added a few drops of Pineapple Punch re-inker to the embossing paste to create the ‘frosting’ for this card. A 2″ strip of Pineapple Punch cardstock was punched on either end with the Scalloped Tag Topper punch. I also embossed this piece with the Oh My Stars embossing folder for an extra celebratory look. 

Note: I have die cut the sentiment with the retired Farmouse die (I forgot these had retired) however, Frosted Bouquet Framelits would probably work well for this. 

Now I feel like a cupcake and a cup of coffee. Yum!
