Stampin' Up! Build a Birthday - A Fave For a Cause

Sprinkles of Life
I'm crazy about this new Stampin' Up! stamp set and coordinating punch. So many uplifting sentiments and images that can be mixed and matched to create...

  • clouds
  • cupcakes
  • ice cream cones
  • trees
  • flower patches
  • piles of leaves

And the coordinating punch...there's no better way to cut out stamped images.

Making a Cupcake
For the frosting part of the cupcake I stamped a piece of Watermelon Wonder cardstock with Watermelon Wonder ink. Then I flipped my punch upside down so I could see where I was punching, lined up my image, and squeezed...easy peasy...cup cake frosting.

The bottom of the cupcake I stamped soft suede ink onto a piece of crumb cake cardstock. The punch doesn't cut the cupcake or ice cream cone bottoms. But don't worry, these are super simple things to cut. If I managed it, anyone can! ;-)

A Fave For a Cause
This set could be my favorite. Well to be honest, I have many favorites in this year's annual catalog. But this one is actually a fave for a cause...

Did you know that Stampin' Up! donates $3 to Ronald McDonald House Charities for every Sprinkles of Life stamp set sold. To date they have donated over $1,000,000 to RMHC.  To find out more visit Stampin' Up! - Making a Difference.

A New Challenge
I discovered a new challenge site this week:  Dragonfly Journey's. The theme there this week is chocolate. My cute little chocolate cupcake fit right in. If you're feeling like a little chocolate inspiration, check it out!
