The challenge in my stamping group this week was to play with the Sweet Pea Designer Series Papers and/or the coordinating felt flowers. I was having so much fun, I just couldn't stop, so you'll have to check in over the coming week to see what else I came up with. Continuing with my theme of birthdays for this week, I came up with this card that would be terrific for a lot of people, and even though it has a cupcake with a heart, could be masculine enough for the right guy.
I have to say, I'm totally in love with this Sweet Pea paper, and it's only available during the Occasions mini catalog dates (through April 30th), so I'm already stocking up on it. As the name implies, the set comes with beautiful floral, nature (think butterflies, birds and trees) and graphic designs (circles, stripes, houndstooth, etc.) in shades of pinks and greens and buttery yellows. But then it also has these wonderful, 'non-girly' bold oranges, chocolate browns, turquoises, and olive green. Just beautiful...very versatile: would be wonderful for scrapbook pages and altered projects as well.
The cupcake, including the dots for sprinkles were cut with my Big Shot machine using Stampin' Ups exclusive Big Bold Cupcakes sizzlets dies. This set comes with four sizzlets to create your cupcake and add decorations to it, such as the sprinkles, candles, hearts and flowers. This die would be a great addition to your stash because it would be so versatilve for birthday cards, invitations, baking parties, decorations, and even thank you notes for all cool birthday gifts you receive.
