Whimsy Stamps | Cupcake Birthday Card + Video

Happy Day! I hope you are having a good day! I have a fun and quick birthday card to share with you today. It features two techniques: masking and coloring with prismacolor pencils.

Although there are lots of sweet images in the Let’s Party clear stamp set from Whimsy, I wanted to showcase this sweet little cupcake. By using masking, I was able to stamp a trio of cupcakes for my card. Having the MISTI tool was an absolute delight and made the whole process quick and easy and most importantly…….I only had to do it once to achieve the exact look I wanted. Each cupcake was stamped EXACTLY where I wanted it to be.

I used the Hand-stitched Nested Rectangles as well as this gorgeous patterned paper from the Summer Breeze pack to create a frame for my card. I could have easily turned this into a shaker card by adding some clear acetate to the frame before adding my foam adhesive. To be honest, I thought about it but was too lazy to look for some acetate. Sshhhh. Don’t tell.

I added some Glossy accents to the candle flames and the letters in the word Birthday. Just elevates the card a little without it getting too fussy looking :)
