Monochromatic Monday – Blushing Bride Cupcake

My first Monochromatic Monday starts with Blushing Bride.  I usually pair this color with Chocolate Chip or Early Espresso.  Keeping it to Blushing Bride and Whisper White was a challenge, but I really liked the results.

I used the brand-new stamp set, Sweet Cupcake, with the coordinating framelits, Cupcake Cutouts.  This is one of the few three-step stamp sets which is gaining popularity.  For the frosting, I actually stamped off once for the base image, and then stamped full strength for the next two stamps.  The color variation looked perfect when I did this.

The “sweet” and the edge swirl are both framelits.  Our new detail glue is wonderful to attach these pieces to cardstock.

I have been somewhat addicted to our Basic Pearls lately.  I thought the pearls softened the edges.

Triple Fold Fun Birthday Card

Today’s my birthday so I thought it would be appropriate to steer away from the Thanksgiving and Fall-themed cards and celebrate on my blog!

Sketched Birthday Triple Fold Fun Card A

Sketched Birthday Triple Fold Fun Card B

 

Sketched Birthday Triple Fold Fun Card C

This card my stampers created a few month back at a Technique Tuesday class.  The technique is Triple Fold Fun – and it is truly a unique and fun card style.

Here are the instructions for the card:

Supplies

Scoring Tool or Simply Scoring Board

2-1/2” Circle Punch/Large Scallop Punch

Card Stock  – 11” x 4-1/4”

4” x 4” Designer Series Paper

4” x 4” Neutral Card Stock

Stamps/Inkpads

Stampin’ Dimensionals

Score 11” x 4-1/4” piece of card stock at 4”1/4” and 8-1/2”.

Big Shot/Embossing Folder (optional)

Latch Piece-cupcake, butterfly, or other?

 

  • Fold at score lines.  If you are going to emboss top section, do so at this point.  Be careful WHAT SIDE you emboss!
  •  Center the 2-1/2” circle punch over 4-1/4” score line – about ½” from the edge.  Punch out a circle (use it on another project).
  •  Punch scallop in matching color.  Stamp or embellish this focal point.  Adhere it ONLY on the bottom so it can peek out of the hole left by the circle punch out.
  •  Adhere DSP on front section and stamp or punch out a latch piece.
  • Important to pop the latch piece up with a dimensional on the bottom/center– leaving top section with NO adhesive so it can hold down but also let go of the top piece.
