Read all the way to the end of this post to find out how you can win!
First, here’s a peek at the products releasing today!
Isn’t it all just so wonderful??? I obsessed with this new stencil. And Newton’s Cupcake just has so many possibilities throughout the year for fun! But I digress…now on to the projects I made to share with you today.
I have two cards to share with you today. The first of which is this adorable rainbow frosted cupcake card! This new stencil is a 3-piece layering stencil and it is AMAZING!!! A definite must for all crafty stashes.
I inked up the first layer with a brown ink and a blending brush. Then I placed the second layer and chose light melon, yellow and teal inks. I started with the yellow first so that my brush didn’t pick up the darker colors on either side. Making sure to overlap my colors, I got a beautiful rainbow in the end! Then I taped the third layer in place and spread red glitz gel through it for some fabulous cherries and sprinkles to top my rainbow cupcakes!
Then I stamped a sentiment from Uplifting Wishes on a circle that I die cut with the Circle Frames die set. Then I die cut a label shape from the Frames Squared set and layered them together with foam squares. Last, I glued the stenciled panel to a white card base and popped the sentiment layers up with foam squares as well.
For my next card, I stamped and colored the new Newton’s Cupcake image with my copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and used a little liquid glue to adhere a cute party had on Newton’s head. I thought the cupcake wrapper was plain so I pulled out the Bubbles stencil, inked it with VersaMark ink and heat embossed some gold bubbles on it. Next, I pulled colors from my coloring to choose background cardstocks. I die cut a red circle to go with the cupcake frosting and a white circle to fit inside it. I stamped the sentiment off to the right so I had space for Newton and decided this was plain too. I inked it up with a little teal shadow and then added the Confetti stencil and more ink for some texture.
For the background panel, I took a teal piece of cardstock and spread Thermoweb transfer gel through the Gingham stencil. I removed the stencil and set the panel aside to dry while I cleaned things up and turned the laminator on. When the panel was dry I placed it in a folded piece of parchment paper with gold decofoil and ran it through the hot laminator. Isn’t that shiny foiling so much fun?!? I die cut the panel with the largest Frames & Flags die and set to assembling my card.
For this I added foam tape the the foiled panel and popped it on a white card base. Then I added foam tape to the red circle and centered it. I used liquid adhesive for the white panel and another layer of foam squares for Newton.
To finish things off I added Wink of Stella gold glitter to the sprinkles on the cupcake and the top of Newton’s hat. Then glossy accents to Newton’s nose and the stripes on his hat.
