Cupcakes and Carousels

On Friday, I shared a birthday card with you from the Cupcakes & Carousels Products Suite from the new Occasions Catalogue (the products from which will be available for sale starting Jan. 4). Today, I want to give you another sneak peek at that product suite with another birthday card! Remember, January is a busy birthday month in our family. This one involves a Ferris Wheel which doubles as a cupcake holder! What a great idea! I've got to get me one of those.

This card features the Carousel Birthday stamp set**, the Lift Me Up stamp set** bundled with the Up & Away Thinlit dies** and the Cupcakes & Carousels Designers Series Paper Stack**. This is one great product suite! You're going to love it!

  • You've gotta love that Designer Series Paper. The vintage feel with the hints of script in the background along with the amusement park theme make it one of the most unique we've had in a while. It's called Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Paper Stack and comes in a 6 x 6 format perfect for card makers.
  • This is a great colour palette. The paper itself is Calypso Coral and Peekaboo Peach. I've added Early Espresso which pops off the page.

  • I stamped the elements of the cupcakes from Lift Me Up** on Early Espresso and Peekaboo Peach cardstock and die cut them with the dies from the Up & Away Thinlits**. After stamping the Ferris Wheel image from Carousel Birthday** on the DSP with Early Espresso, I added the cupcake bases over top of the stamped cupcakes with Glue Dots, and used parts of Stampin' Dimensionals to add the iced cupcake tops to each one, giving them a more 3D effect.
  • The sentiment is from Lift Me Up** and I stamped it on a 3/4" strip of Very Vanilla in Early Espresso and sponged the edges in Calypso Coral after cutting flags in the ends. I curved the strip at both ends and mounted it on the card front over two strips of ribbon, one the Peekaboo Peach Ruched Ribbon from the Annual Catalogue, and one the Calypso Coral Ombre Ribbon from the Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit**. I also added a strip of Gold Sequin Trim above it.
  • There is one more sneak peek on this card: look at the center of the ferris wheel. That embellishment is from the Urban Underground Suite of products and is called Urban Underground Embellishments**. Perfect!
