Sweet Cupcake for #SSINKIC35: INKspiration Challenge

I’ve been hearing about Sara Douglass’ frosting recipe that she presented at #OnStage2016!  At club this month, we made this cute card using Sara’s recipe.

I actually came up with this card idea by looking at the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration challenge picture shown here:

My card’s not a beach scene, but I did use blue & pink & made little sprinkles like the sand.

  • Stamps:  Sweet Cupcake & Endless Thanks
  • Inks:  Crumb Cake & Soft Suede for Cupcake Liner (I stamped off Crumb Cake for the #3 stamp that had the largest image), Frosting was Flirty Flamingo (stamped off #3 stamp with the largest image) and the recipe reinker I used was Calypso Coral.  I sprinkled it with Dazzling Diamonds before it had time to dry.  Pool Party ink for “friend”.
  • Paper:  Crumb Cake base, Soft Sky (5 3/8 X 4 1/8), Pink Pirouette (5 1/8 X 3 7/8)
  • Accessories:  Cupcake Cutouts Framelits, Dimensionals under the cupcake

Hints:  Use the Precision Base Plate & Die Brush & the “Sweet” pops out with no trouble at all!

Lots of swirls & stripes happening in this card!  Stamp sets used were Work of Art & Swirly Bird.  Can you guess where I found the sentiment?!  You know you’ve seen it somewhere… Bear Hugs!  I just taped off the lake full of fish part.  Hint:  Remember to remove the scotch tape before stamping!  Yes, I’ve done that.

Today is my first official day as a team member & the theme today is Fourth of July (or red/white/blue).  I’m hosting a block party this weekend, so I came up with this little treat to give out.

SSINK 4th of Jul3

The Mini Treat Bag Thinlits were the perfect size for my Red Vines.  Yum!  I remember eating these at the movies when I was a kid.

SSINK 4th of July2

Wish you could see the sparkle on the little swirls where I’ve swiped it with Wink of Stella!

SSINK 4th of Jul3

This bag, especially with the doily, makes me think of the banners on Makawao Avenue here on Maui.  Most people probably don’t realize this, but we have lots of cowboys (Paniolos) in Hawaii and a big rodeo is held each year on July 4th on my island of Maui.

Being a part of this team is a big challenge for me, and it’s sure to keep me stampin’!  My favorite thing to do!!  I’d appreciate comments any time!  Please subscribe to my blog via email (on the right bar of this page) so that you don’t miss anything!
