Happy Anniversary, Cupcake ♥

Paper Smooches is showing off their CHA release during the entire month of January.  37 designers are participating along with the PS DT, so there will be a ton of projects to inspire you this month.  Paper Smooches is known for their fun and whimsical hand-drawn stamps.  They decided that it was time to broaden their product line to include DIES and wood mount stamps! 
I have a project to share using the new Cupcake Die that releases on February 1, 2013 at www.papersmoochesstamps.com along with many retail stores around the globe.
You will find a new blog link (or two) to follow every day in January at the PS Blog
Paper Smooches is giving away $500 worth of product!  Hidden on FIVE of the participating blogs is a prize package worth $100 each. The prize includes a variety of stamp sets, wood mounts and dies.  Comment on as many blogs as you can to increase your chances to be one of the five winners.  The deadline is January 30th – winners will be announced on the PS Blog on January 31st.
I created a sweet Anniversary card using the new Cupcake Die and Paper Smooches "Good Gab" stamp set.  It also uses the brand new collection by Prima Marketing called "Lyric".  I love the soft & romantic feel that this card has, even when it features something as sweet & fun as a cupcake!  Here is what I created!
 Instructions:
1. Make an A2 card from light orange cardstock.
2. Cut wood paper slightly smaller and adhere.
3. Cut a strip of burlap, and adhere to the left side.
4. Diecut the cupcake layers from patterned papers.
5. Add strips of crochet trim to the bottom layer, then adhere to the front with the cupcake top.
6. Layer together the cherry cut & leaves, add a twine threaded button & adhere the entire piece to the cupcake top.
7. Accent the left side of the cupcake with flowers, a butterfly and pearl flourish.
8. Add two pins to the right side of the cupcake, then add the two banners to the each one.
9. Adhere two stickers to the upper right corner of the card.
10. Accent the card with rhinestones to finish.

I hope you enjoyed my cute little cupcake card, and remember....this brand new die will be available for purchase on February 1st!  Thanks so much to Kim for asking me to be part of her fantastic CHA festivities & reveals!!  I hope you have a fabulous rest of your Saturday! 

Until later,
