Hello Cupcake … Let’s Hop & Shop!


It’s release day over on MFT Stamps, which means it is time to join the MFT Stamps Design Team for another "Blog Hop and Shop!".

The hop started at Kim's (MFT Lady) blog so if you didn’t start from there you may want to head over there now so that you can start at the beginning of the hop. You don't want to miss anything and believe me there is lots to see!


Tonight I'm featuring the Pure Innocence – Hello Cupcake stamp set.

For my projects tonight I decided to use this cute little girl to create an Upright Z Fold Card. It’s been a while since I made one of these and they are such fun!

I have paper pieced the little girls dress and cupcake wrapper.


I used a number of MFT Die-namic Dies to create my card. On the front I used the Mini Banner Die and the Flower Trio Die.

Here is a side view of my Up Right Z fold card, so that you can see the Z shape and how it gets it’s name.


Here is my card opened up. As you can see I used two more MFT Die-namics dies on this. The Cloud die and the Rounded Banner die which helps keep the card closed.

To accompany my card I also created a gift bag. As you can see I used another of the MFT Die-namics dies at the bottom of my bag, this is the MFT Die-namics Faux Crochet Border Die.
