When Cupcakes Fly!

As you can see, I haven't blogged in over a week. Part of last week we were in Disney, then we came home and my husband had to do his chemo routine for two days.

I'm thankful to SR#363 for their die challenge.
I love Stampin' Royalty Challenges

and to #WWYS104 for their challenge using the Lift Me Up stamp set.   

What perfect timing for the birthday card I made for a friend. Here it is...

All products are Stampin Up with the exception of the  cloud embossing folder and background DSP. The base is Blackberry Bliss (retired) but you could use Elegant Eggplant or Rich Razzleberry. The mat is Perfect Plum, which has been debossed (it should have been embossed but I had it in the folder incorrectly). The Basic Black hot air balloon and the DSP pieces under the top were die cut using the Up & Away Thinlits Dies, which can be ordered as a bundle with the Lift Me Up stamp set. The clouds were stamped on vellum with Pacific Point and die cut. Both sentiments were embossed with black embossing powder. The top sentiment is from the January 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit and the bottom is from Thoughtful Banners. The floating cupcakes were also from cardstock in the January PP kit and punched with a retired SU punch. I added lines in Early Espresso to make it look like cupcake liners. The Whisper White inside of the card has smaller hot air balloons and clouds stamped off twice with Perfect Plum and just the "Hope Your Day is on Cloud Nine" sentiment.

This card has many flaws but she knows we are both flawed so it is fitting! BUT purple is her favorite color and she loves cupcakes so she might not even notice!!

Thanks for looking.


  1. What a whimsical scene you have set. Nice job! Thanks for joining us this week at What Will You Stamp Challenge :-)
