Stampin Up Cupcake Punch Birthday Card Idea By Mary Fish StampinUp

  • Tin of Cards photopolymer (clear) stamp set is a versatile collection of sentiments (and cute doodles) for every day occasions.  I ADORE that the stamps are clear (see-through) and so easy to place.

  1. brent scheffer

    I had to cut back on cupcakes after I retired. At least can look at the pretty one in you card! Color combinations and object design/placement are work wel together. Great card!

  2. Clean and simply marvelous…in perfect Mary style!

  3. Do you think the candy dots will be replaced by something like enamel dots? I use candy fits in every card and used to use brads…the party enamel dots rock.

  4. I love that, Christine. Punch Hound!

  5. Christine Borovic

    I love the template….so many images can be used for this one. I’m a punch hound, I can’t wait to make some cards with the owl and bird punches!

  6. Patti MacLeith

    I’m waiting for the frosting to land on the cupcake! YUM!

  7. Who doesn’t love a cupcake? This one is so cute, love how you left space between the parts, neat touch. This is also a card to send to just about anyone, which is always a plus!

  8. Mary, this is a wonderful card for any age birthday, it’s fun yet elegant and beautiful. Love the sweet statement the cupcake makes with the black background!! Fabulous colors too.
    Thank you for sharing.

  9. I have been receiving your newsletters for awhile and I must tell you that I just love your card deigns – simple, yet elegant. The matching envelope really sets the pair as something anyone could copy without a lot of supplies.
