Birthday Cupcakes for Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps

It's time for another project for Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps!  Today, I'm featuring the free stamp of the month which is the Birthday Friendship sentiment (free with purchase), along with the Cupcake with Strawberry stamp; one of my go-to stamps for birthday cards.  


(FTC Disclosure: as an affiliate for various companies in the craft industry, I will receive a small commission for purchases made through my convenient affiliate links.  This does not affect your purchase price.)






First, a few dimensions for my A2 sized card.  I wanted to create a party table top for my cupcakes to sit on, so I basically cut an angled piece of kraft cardstock.  You can see the measurements below.  I then trimmed the polka dot paper to layer in size accordingly.



 


For the coloring of my cupcakes, I used my Marvy Le Plume II brush markers, swiping them on a craft mat and grabbing the color with a water brush.  A white gel pen helps accent the seeds on my strawberries.   If you notice, some of my cupcakes don't have a candle.  Simply mask that part of your stamp with tape, ink your stamp, then remove the tape and stamp onto cardstock.  Easy peasy!  Using my Misti stamp positioner makes it super easy to get good results every time.





I even carried my elements to the inside of my card for added sugar and sweetness!  By the way, I topped my frosting with clear glue and extra fine sparkly glitter.






Did you know that food and drink stamps are on sale this month?  That means cupcakes!  And coffee, cookies, candy.... I'm using a lot of "c" words, aren't I?    Check those out here.









Thanks so much for stopping in today.  I hope I've inspired you!  I also hope you'll join the Christmas challenge coming up in just a few days.  There will be prizes up for grabs and you don't want to miss out.  Get those Christmas cards ready and link up!





Scroll down, if you'd like to do some shopping.  I've provided convenient affiliate shopping links, as always.  Are you following me on social media?  You're missing out as I often share videos that accompany my projects.... such as cutting my stamped cupcake images with my Brother Scan N Cut!  Be sure you're following me at the links below.   Be sure to follow the Cracker Box & Suzy Blog for more design team inspiration as well.  See you next time!  Terri
