Stampin’ Up! Birthday Card Cupcakes

I love the combination of colors in today’s card.  Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, So Saffon and Calypso Coral are bold with a retro spin.  The yummy cupcakes fall into place perfectly for today’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO237).  It’s one of my own sketches this week . . . woo hoo!  I hope it inspires you!Mojo237Sketch

  • The beauty of the Stampin’ Up! Cupcake Builder Punch and Create a Cupcake rubber stamp set is that there are plenty of options for you to create a unique “personalty” for each cupcake!

  • I bumped up the “frosting” (Stampin’ Dimensionals) for the second cupcake from the right for added visual interest.
  • The touch of zigzag was produced using the Tasteful Trim Bigz XL Die and my Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.
  • The little cherry on the sentiment was cropped with the Cupcake Builder Punch.

  1. Hi Mary,
    I love the card also but am wondering what adhesive you used… I understand the bit about the dimensionals but what did you use to adhere the cherry etc.?

  2. Absolutely beautiful, Mary! I love your style! Thanks for sharing!

  3. What a cute card!! LOVE the sentiment!! 🙂

  4. Love the card and the hearts 🙂 You really did a great job!

    Great card! Love the cupcakes. Thank you for the sketch Mary!

  6. Love this colour combo, and wonderful sketch too, Mary!

  7. Sorry, Mary. I hadn’t used the set in a while before I wrote that. I see that the bow is part of the set.

    Sorry for the trouble.


  8. I adore this card, Mary. Great, quick card for kids birthdays and I have plenty of those we go to! Question: How did you do the bow on the one cupcake? Is it drawn on?


  9. Love, love, love this card Mary. My kind of card!

  10. This is such a cute cupcake card Mary! I’ve put off buying this stamp set and punch, but everytime I see it in action, I think to myself I have will to put it in my next order! Thanks for the inspiration.

  11. Mary, I am back to admire this card again 🙂 and I have a question…can you flag the ends with any size square punch or do you change depending on the size of your piece to flag? Some of my flagging looks a little wonky and I’m wondering if that’s what I need to pay more attention to. Thanks!
