Sprinkles of Life for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop – Stampin’ Up!

NEW Blog Hop Header
The Happy Stampers are back with a new color challenge!  My card share today features the Sprinkles of Life stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  I’m always in need of cute cards for all the birthday parties my son gets invited to, and this project fits the bill.  I love how the stamp set coordinates with the Tree Builder Punch too!

Can you believe one stamp set can be used to create clouds, trees, cupcakes, ice cream cones, or even a basket of flowers… that’s one versatile tool!

Card Recipe and Tips:

Card Base: Whisper White Thick Card Stock – 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored and folded at 4-1/4″

Layers: Mint Macaroon 4″ x 5-1/4″, It’s My Party DSP 2-3/4″ x 5-1/4″, Melon Mambo 3-1/4″ x 3-3/4″, Whisper White 3″ x 3-1/2″

Art Piece: Whisper White 2″ Circle Punch, Tree Builder Punch & Candles, Mint Macaroon 2-1/2″ Circle Punch

  • Stamp the images on Whisper White card stock in waterproof ink.  Choices are Archival or StazOn Black (I used Basic Gray Archival for a softer image).
  • I used the lids of my ink pads and my aqua painter to add the color to the cupcake and candles.
  • I used Stampin’ Write Markers to color the sentiment.  Don’t forget to “huff” on the stamp to remoisten the ink before stamping.  Press down firmly for a clean image and good ink coverage.
  • I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to give the cupcake a little extra dimension and interest.
  • I fussy cut the candles with scissors.
