Good morning, friends! April is upon us - hard to believe, since in Calgary, we still have several feet of snow in our yard! But something fresh is around the corner, at least - this weekend, I'll be heading to On Stage Local in Red Deer, Alberta, to take in the brand new Stampin' Up! Catalogue! I can't WAIT to see what fabulous new stamp sets, dies, and accessories are in store for us this year!
In the meantime, though, there's still several months left of the current 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue AND the 2018 Occasions Catalogue, and I need to focus on paying as much attention to these beautiful supplies as I can - you never know what will be retiring (until next weekend!)
Today I'm featuring an adorable stamp set, called Sweet Cupcake, for the very first time. I haven't used this one before!
Sweet Cupcake looks a bit intimidating at first, but I promise, it's easy as pie - each piece of the cupcake layers upon the last for a really cool, dimensional look. I loved how this came together, and even with my crappy vision and unsteady hands, I nailed it on the first try. I'm calling that a win!
This card was made for our nephew, who celebrated his first birthday last weekend. The tone-on-tone die-cut numbers in the background added such a sweet touch to this little cupcake for the birthday boy.
Sometimes those little details make all the difference in making a simple card a little more special.
In other news, a new month means a new ordering bonus (scroll down!) but our Bird Banter Project Pack is still available for another week or so!
You won't want to miss this adorable set of SIX cards, free with your supplies purchase (click for details) and designed exclusively for my Project Pack subscribers. This DIY Card Kit is so much fun, packed with pops of colour and quirky touches. You'll love it!
See you again soon - have a fabulous day!
