Happy Cupcake Day

Hi Crafty Friends,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. As challenge hostess for the month, I continue to issue the challenges.

Apparently Monday 14th June is Cupcake Day, so for our challenge this week we are adding cupcakes to our cards.

I have created a Slimline card using Trinity Stamps Room Builder die set. Ever since I received this die last year I have been wanting to create a kitchen scene using the Art Impressions Whisk It stamp set. I finally found the perfect opportunity to make it.

I die cut the main die from the Room Builder die set from white cardstock.  I then used a black marker to turn the floor boards from a wood floor to a checkerboard floor. I added patterned paper to the top portion of the card.

The fridge, oven, bench and many of the other accessories on this card are from Trinity Stamps Cottage Kitchen Stamp set. To fill in the kitchen scene with cupboards, I just used a strip of white cardstock and a sliver of black cardstock on the top and then added rectangles for the doors. I used the inner rectangles from the window die included in the Room Builder die set to add the doors.

I added the "Happy Cake Day" sentiment to the front of the island bench which is from Honey Bee Stamps You Bake Me Happy stamp set. I added the "cup" sentiment seeing this card is for Cupcake Day.

For this inside of the card I added the patterned paper I used on the front for the top and bottom edges. I used Whimsy Stamps Slimline Zig Zag Edger die set to create the zig zag border on both panels.

The cupcakes are from Karen Burniston's Cupcake Pop-up die set which I popped up using the larger of the angled pop up mechanisms from the Mini Pops Pop-up die set.

The pop up in the centre of the card is from the Explosion Pop-up die set. I added the birthday sentiment to the pop-up panel which is from Honey Bee Stamps Baked with Love stamp set.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.
