Crazy for Cupcakes for Retro Rubber

Crazy for Cupcakes, Sketched Birthday

Cupcakes are all the rage right now! This retired stamp set, Crazy for Cupcakes, is absolutely perfect for that special occasion. I love the simplicity of this card and you can make one like it in no time at all. After stamping the focal image in Memento Black, the cupcakes were colored in Mossy Meadow and Calypso Coral. I used my new framelits by Lil’ Inkers to cut it out then framed it out with Mossy Meadow. Retired Stretch Ribbon Trim in Crisp Cantaloupe (absolutely love this ribbon!) was added to the bottom. My other favorite SU product, Square Lattice TIEF, was layered on top of the Crisp Cantaloupe, then the Burlap Ribbon glued with Tombow glue. After the cupcake image was popped up on dimensionals and laid down, I colored pearls with Cherry Cobbler alcohol markers. The sentiment was stamped and cut with the bitty banner framelit and also popped up with dimensionals. The last little touch were some adorable sequins in Crisp Cantaloupe with tiny pearls. Fast, easy and so retro!

  2. While the card might have an overall simplistic look, it is so full of sweet details! Great retro card, Debbie.

    Connie, I have found when researching stamp sets for introduction dates of my retro sets that many of these sets are available for purchase by individuals. And sometimes Debbie is willing to sell hers… 🙂
