She’s a doozy

After making a lot of simpler cards lately and very very few punch art ones which were my favourite ones to do a while ago I got a little bit adventurous with this one.


It has an acetate window front and a gorgeous bear eyeing up the cupcake display. The head of the bear is hand cut and the ears are the 7/8″ scallop circle with a 3/8″ circle centre. The nose is the  heart from Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack. Then its just add pen details and sponge all the pieces with Crumb Cake Ink.

Girly cupcakes card

I loved the card I made yesterday so much I used the design again to make a card for my niece’s 3rd birthday too but of course in pink and girly colours.

I added the little cupcake from Short and Sweet and changed up the front a little. The sentiment is from Bring on the Cake. The DSP is Lap of Luxury.

Heres a close up of the pennants

The sold out list is growing so don’t wait too long.

Thats cool…..WOW thats AWESOME!!!

That was the response of my teens when I showed them, first the front and then the inside of  this card.

One of my young men at Playcentre turned 5 yesterday. Its hard to believe he is that old already and will start school on Monday. I wanted to make him a really special card and know how much he enjoys CAKE!

The front three cupcakes pop out when you open the card and I made the pennants using the “Build a cupcake”  punch which  is still available as a carryover product. You can snip two pennant pieces from each cupcake case.

Notice I used the Jolly Holidays DSP and by adding non Christmas colours it makes it useful for other occasions too.  Its 40 % off on the Last Chance List making it only $12.30!!

So if you are a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator located in Australia or New Zealand then please feel free to click here to join our wonderful group.


I got this great wee box pattern and have had a lot of fun making boxes using some of the sets in the new mini catalogue.

This one uses the Create a Cupcake Set  and is in Pacific Point cardstock. I stamped both sides of the tag with a sentiment and a message.

Heres another version using Clearly For You. It has a matching card and an alternative card too.

I have used markers direct on the stamps to stamp the berry image, the bird images and the flowers on the cupcake box tag. It’s a great technique to use if you want to add a bit more dimension to your images or to highlight sections of an image or to only use part of a word or image. Very handy!
