Happy Birthday Cup Cakes

I am so honoured to be chosen as one of the Sugar and Spice design team. These ladies I have joined are just oozing with talent and a great team to work with.

Happy Birthday Cup Cakes is a birthday card that I have made three times now and each time has inspired the recipient to by something for the kitchen with cup cakes on it. I hope it inspires you.

Items used

Yellow Pink and white card stock
Light Pink, Dark Pink and Yellow VERSA pigment ink pads
Black STAZON ink pad
SUGAR AND SPICE Happy Happy Birthday and Fancy Flourishes Clear Stamps
White 5” x 5” Birthday Card
Fine Black permanent ink pen.
Soft paint brush
Glamour Dust
Glue Pen
Double sided tape
Foam Pads
Quickie Glue Pen
6” ruler

STAZON ink and a permanent ink pen are used as for this card as it is coloured with a wash of water colours and you don’t want the black ink to run.

Using the Sugar and Spice Happy Happy Birthday stamps, and the black STAZON ink, I stamped out 3 cupcakes onto white card stock. I water coloured the cupcakes with a light was of pigment ink and water, then dotted the fondant with small dark pink dots and a sprinkle of Glamour Dust.

For the Cake Plate; on white card stock and using a fine permanent marker, I drew a 4" horizontal black line. Using a straight border stamp from the Sugar and Spice Fancy Flourishes set, I centred it under the penned line. I added scrolls at the end of the 4” line to give a fancy finish. I then drew 1” vertical line from the centre of the plate. Using one of the corner stamps I rotated it so that the point was centred to the vertical line to form a base of the cake stand, then washed the whole plate stand with a very weak pink wash.

I cut out a square of yellow and pink card stock and tore around the edges and edged each piece with glamour dust. I lightly curl the edges of the two pieces of card. I stuck the pink to the yellow then both to the birthday card. I adhere the cake stand flat to the card with glue pen then the three cup cakes using foam pads. I stamped Birthday midway on the stem of the cake stand and glaze over the words with glue pen and glamour dust.

But Ladies, please remember, when you go to work the next day that your trousers will be covered in glamour dust and you will shine in the lights all day.

3 and counting....

We’re at the 3rd trade show.... this year !!!!!!
To say I’m tired is an understatement, but there’s something about the shows plus adrenaline that just keeps you going.
There’s nothing better than teaching people new techniques and that’s what these shows are all about. That and having fun of course !!!
We’re all set up...this is the calm before the storm ;) we have so many new things to show this year, it makes it all the more exciting.
One of the best things about trade show shows is meeting up with buddies in the industry and even though I see Leandra and Mark (PaperArtsy) every week (we quiz together) it was great to go out with them last night.

Richard and Mark look like they’re praying, when in fact they were having a bald off 不不不不 Steve has more hair than both of them put together so as a gesture of kindness he hid his. 不不不不不  It’s now 6am, I’m ready to jump in the shower and get this day started... think of me standing from 8am to 6pm.... I hope you get to sit a lot m…

One for the Mums ...

In celebration of the fabulous Catherine Pooler Inks about to hit the store, I thought I'd pop a little card on here. Take a folded card base, I always make mine from card stock, then I know the piece on top is going to match perfectly. then cut a smaller piece and perforate the edges, you can use a perforating blade, if your trimmer has one, or there are many dies out there that do this in a snip ! Using the WOW! Embossing Powder Layered Hearts Stamps, I inked up and stamped using the Catherine Pooler Daydream, Aquatini and Skylight Inks.
Embellish with a Uni Ball Signo White Gel Pen, one of my favourites !!!
Finish off with the Mothers day sentiment from the WOW! Embossing Powder Everyday Sentiment Stamps, inked in Versafine Onyx Black, adhere with foam pads. Check out PAPERBOX for a great selection  of card stock. Thanks for looking
