Bonjour, Cupcake

Stampin up crazy cupcake sparkle

It's the countdown to the end of Stampin' Up!'s Birthday Sale and Aqua Painter Promotion.  I topped things off with an exclusive Stampin' Pretty offer–a free Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog ($9.95 Value and includes catalog delivery) with every product order of $99 or more.  To take advantage of these three specials, place your on-line order here, no later than midnight (CST), October 31.

Stampin' Up!'s Crazy for Cupcakes is part of the Birthday Sale and gets a Parisian flair in pink and black.  The Bella Toila stamp jazzes up the Pretty in Pink Background.  Fiskars makes a Scallop Edge Punch (Threading Water) with a sweet little hole in every scallop.  TIP:  I lined the back of the open holes with a strip of Pretty in Pink for some ooh la la!  A sparkle gel pen adds a delightful shimmer to the cupcakes and other details.

More cupcake ideas to come tomorrow.  And stay tuned . . . I'm nearing the 200,000th visit to my blog and am ready to break out the blog candy to celebrate!

Crazy for cupcakes


  1. What a darling card. It reminds me of a little pastry shop in Paris.

  2. Bonjour, Mary! 😉 Oh, wow, what a great idea to do a store front like that! Very clever!

    I used a similar idea on a scrapbook page, but my “window” was used as a journaling block (

    Have a great weekend!
