Hi friends! Today is, sadly, my final post of the Papertrey Ink Anniversary Month festivities! It has been soooo much fun to feature stamp sets from the past! Today's post is from 2015. I bought a LOT of Papertrey Ink stamp sets in 2015! LOL. CLICK HERE to go to Nichole's Blog to see everything so far and to enter contests and showcase your cards too. This truly is a party for all of us! I have really been loving looking at all the past cards and then seeing what the design team has come up with currently. It is fun to me to look back at how our stamping has changed and how trends come and go. Such a fun celebration this has been. I loved every minute!
The stamp set I chose to feature from 2015 is called Bakers Dozen. It is a gorgeous set of cupcake stamps for every month and season. And the cake stand and the banners that match with it are genius in my book. Everything you need to create a card for any celebration. I've used this set many many times and every time I am pleased with the results. Because, well, everyone loves cupcakes! For this project I used a classic color combination of black and aqua - and just a pop of bright red! I love red and aqua together as a color combination. I colored the cupcake and the accents with Copic Markers and also did a bit of heat embossing.
For this card, I started with a rich black A2 card base. Isn't that scalloped edge beautiful? I made the card base using the awesome die called Noted: Scalloped A2 Vertical Die. This die perfect cuts out a card base! LOVE. Next I layered aqua mist polka dot paper and then a layer of white.
I stamped and cut out the cupcake with the matching die, then colored it with Copic Markers. I also added some accents with a white gel pen. Next I heat embossed the pretty frame with white embossing powder on black cardstock. I cut that out with the matching die. I also die cut the cake plate and stand. I used a light aqua Copic Marker (BG10) to add bits of color to the cake stand and the banner. I layered the white banner piece over the black, off setting them slightly.
I adore the pretty edge on the cake stand!!
I finished off the card with some twine and a red enamel dot to tie in with the cherry on the cupcake!
