Hello Cupcake Stacked full of Goodness

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a card that I made using the Hello Cupcake Stamp Set which you can earn for free with a $50.00 order for another 10 days.  That's right Saleabration is almost over!  I know sad face right; So if you want to take advantage of this promotion now is the time to do so I am just saying.  Here's a look at my card.

Like I said I used the Hello Cupcake stamp set.  Which is a great set with the fun cute cupcake and coordinating images.  I actually designed this card before the coordinating framelits for Saleabration Coordination came out and have since sold out.  I cut each layer out by hand.  Yes, you just read that correct I actually did fussy cut each and every piece.  Here's a few cards that Stampin' Up! designed for the Saleabration Brochure.

Actually I only had to cut the top there layers of icing and the little heart pick.  After that I had stamped the cupcake bottom and cake on the whisper white (3 3/4 x 5) card front layer.  After the stamping of the bottom layer I added the icing each layer at a time with a little multipurpose liquid glue.  I find this adhesive the best for this type of card because you have a little wiggle room to make sure everything lines up perfectly.

For the inside of the card I stamped the sprinkles from the stamp set in the same colors that I used for the card.  Pineapple Punch, Flirty Flamingo, Merry Merlot, and Gorgeous Grape.  This is actually a color combination that you wouldn't think about, but looks really good together.

I matted the card front on a piece of Flirty Flamingo cardstock (4 x 5 1/4).  My card base is a piece of 4 1/4 x 11 Gorgeous Grape that I scored at 5 1/2.  I stamped the little heart pick in Flirty Flamingo and cut it out to put in the top layer of icing.  I attached that with a mini glue dot.  at the bottom of the cupcake on the stamp is a shadow.  Well, with the stack I needed the shadow to extend a little more so I used my wink of stella brush pen to pull the ink out a little more.

To finish off the card I stamped my sentiment in Gorgeous Grape beside the cupcake.  I just love this card; it just makes me happy.  I think that the person that gets this card will just love it.  And my hope is that when the recipient opens the envelope this little card will put a smile on their face.  Here's a final look at my card.
