Create A Cupcake Birthday

Hello again!
I know....2 posts in one week! ;-)  Hopefully it'll be more...it feels good to be back!

No, we're not making cupcakes today. Well, actually we are.
But we won't be putting them in the oven. ;-)

I knew when I saw the Create A Cupcake stamp set in the Occasions mini catalog, it was on my list of must-haves. Then I saw the matching Build A Cupcake punch. SERIOUSLY?!!!  Okay, this duo is a must-have! :)

I had so much fun playing with these new items while prepping for my Sale-A-Bration party. In fact, I decided to make it one of the free Make & Takes. :)  Wanna see?? OK.

What I love about this (other than the colors, etc) was that you could change the layout so many different ways, but still keep the same elements!

The DSP is called Elegant Soiree, the ribbon is Crumb Cake seam binding ribbon. The cupcake colors are Soft Suede and Baja Breeze. The cherry on top is a stamp colored with SU markers, stamped, then punched out. After attaching the cherry to the frosting with a glue dot, I had the ladies add some dazzling diamonds to it for a little extra somethin'. :)

I had the ladies choose between Soft Suede and Crumb Cake for the scallop circle behind main image.

Well, what do you think?

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a GREAT day! :)


  1. I really like this card. It's a great birthday card for all ages. TFS and enjoy your day!

  2. What a sweet, simple card. I am always looking for something that my class will love and I think would love this one. Now I just have to borrow someone's cupcake punch. Yep - I am still holding out. Sigh. Thanks for blessing my day. :)

  3. Is this one of the cards that I missed out on? It is sooo cute! I love that Stampin Up! is making punch and stamp duo's! Super fun!

  4. Love it. And now I'm hungry for cupcakes.

  5. Hi Crystal! This is adorable! I love the color combo you used with the cupcake, too. The sparkly cherry is the perfect touch. :)

  6. Andrea - yup. And I'm thinking it's safe to say you'd love the other one, too (maybe even better). ;-)

  7. I agree whole heartedly. I LOVE that stamp set and punch. I really like that card too. Very nice! I just had to leave you a comment about the quilted card comment you left me. It made me laugh, so thanks for the laugh, I needed it tonight. As always, I love what you've done! TFS. yolanda-tryingtobecreative.blogspot.com

  8. Fun card. Great layout.


  9. I love this card, Crystal! I may have to case it for my club. TFS!

  10. This is a great card. I love that DSP and the colors. I think I need to case this.


Go ahead...make my day! :)
