I'm back again!
I just love this set 'Big Bold Birthday'. It's 20% off this month, and it's a great set to be a bit creative with, and turn the shapes into different things. My favourite thing to make though, is the cupcake, with all that pink fluffy frosting. Cupcakes seem to be everywhere at the moment!
I used the matching Happy, Happy Birthday Jumbo wheel on the Old Olive background cardstock. I used the wheel guide to line it up straight. Not all wheels need the guide, but it sure helps when you really want it to be straight!
The Soft Sky cardstock is textured. I have to remember to pull out my textured cardstock more often. It's tucked away on my shelf, as it doesn't fit in my filing cabinet with my other cardstock, so I always forget it's there. The cupcake base has been stamped in So Saffron ink, and cut out. I inked the frosting in Regal Rose ink, and then 'kissed' the spotty stamp on it to remove some ink, and then stamped on Whisper white cardstock and cut it out also, and popped it up using Dimensionals. I also stamped and cut out the candle and little flower (and put a silver brad in the centre). I mounted it all on a large aluminium-edged circle. I used rub-ons on the Regal Rose ribbon, and stapled the edge with a regular stapler. I used mini glue dots to hold the other edge in place. I inked 'make a wish' using So Saffron, Old Olive and Regal Rose markers, and cut the words out separately.
