I love hearing from you!  Please leave me your questions or comments about the project for today.


  • Think Neapolitan ice cream?  I cropped the 1″ squares of Whisper White, Chocolate Chip and Flirty Flamingo using the Layering Squares Framelits Dies (one of My Favorite Things).

  • The squares were adhered to a 3 x 3 piece of Whisper White Card Stock and layered over a 3 1/4″ square of Crumb Cake with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • All that glitters . . . my “frosting” enjoys a few sweeps of Clear Wink of Stella.

  • There are three stamps/steps each for the frosting and cupcake.  For the frosting, I began with Pink Pirouette, layered Blushing Bride on top and finished with Flirty Flamgo.  For the cupcake base, I stamped off Crumb Cake for the first stamp, then Crumb Cake (without stamping off) and finished with  a touch of Chocolate Chip!
  • The sweet pop of Blushing Bride color on the sentiment is a dot from Stampin’ Up! Subtles Enamel Shapes (one of My Favorite Things).
