Hello Cupcake #simplestamping Saturday. It is back, after the Christmas and New Year break, I am back with my regular #Simplestamping Saturday projects. If this is the first time you have heard of these, let me explain the idea. On Saturdays I will share three projects with you. The first will be a simple project using minimal supplies, generally on a Note Card. I will then step the project up two notches; first for a Casual Crafter, then for a more Avid Crafter who has more tools and techniques up their sleeves.
Today is a really cute project, perfect for a special day. The Stamp Set is one of the FREE sets you can pick from the Sale-a-Bration leaflet if you spend £45 or more. This is the perfect time to try crafting because you can order a few basic supplies, earn a FREE stamp set and start a new hobby. There are 7 Stamp Sets to choose from (one needs a £90 spend), so you should find something to suit. I think you can’t go wrong with a cupcake! Everyone likes the, right? This set is photopolymer, so is super easy to line up every time. I used three ink colours and some Wink of Stella on the frosting to make this really cute card. Remember to stamp the envelope too!
The Casual Card is on a standard A6 card base and adds some additional products. The patterned paper is the Gingham Gala 6 x 6 Stack, which is super cute in 5 fresh colours. I fussy cut the frosting and adhered it with Dimensionals. Like the simple version, I used the Wink of Stella, but added some sequins for added bling. On the subject of which, I added some subtle bling ‘spritzing’ the Wink of Stella over the patterned paper. Take a look at the video to see how I did that. The Avid version switches out the sequins and sentiment stamp for heat embossing and rhinestones for sequins. I used another FREE product behind the stamped image – the Organdy Ribbon set. This matches the Gingham Gala paper perfectly! But I didn’t ignore the sequins completely. They are on the patterned paper – as dry embossing.
I hope you are finding this series interesting. My idea is that you will see how you can grow in your crafting, just by adding a few extra products bit by bit.
