I used one of the MINI BRACKET ALBUM STAX DIE-NAMICS to the backdrop. It's such a pretty shape. I recently picked up some sequins to add to my stash. I have been spying them in magazines and in blog land for awhile now, and I really like the look. Aren't they pretty?
While I still had out the MINI BRACKET ALBUM STAX DIE-NAMICS I knew I also wanted to use it as a card base. I love making shaped cards. She's so cute and festive, so I paired a card with the new SCALLOP TREAT BOX and made a party ensemble.
I used Banana Split cs for my card base and added some pretty Sundrifter designer paper for a simple accent across the middle. Along the bottom, I added a Kraft scallop border cut from the largest of the OPEN SIMPLY SCALLOP TRIO DIE-NAMICS.
I cut a smaller layer of the MINI BRACKET ALBUM STAX from x-press blending cs, so I could stamp my CUPCAKE CUTIE directly onto the layer. After I colored her up I placed the white layer back into the die and used Sno Cone ink to sponge around the edges of the die. I love how this creates a white border, with the subtle shading just to the inside.
The stamp set includes a separate balloon image. I stamped it onto coordinating designer paper, cut it out and popped it up.
I then added a strip of Hemp Twine, so she could hold onto the floating balloon.
MFT's Black Licorice Premium Dye ink. This ink is a dream for stamping sentiments. Perfect!
Here is a closer look at the fun box. I gave it to my niece this past weekend for her birthday. It was perfect to slip the gift card, right in to it.
I dressed up the box with a Kraft strip of the OPEN SIMPLY SCALLOP TRIO DIE-NAMICS, and a fun Party Banner. I also colored up the beautiful cupcake table stamp and cut it out to pop it up with dimensionals on the front of the box. I used a white gel pen to add some fun polka dots to the table cloth.
The finishing touches on this party box was a pennant. I cut one from the Jumbo Banner Day Stax Die-namics and stamped a sentiment from this month's Triple Scoop set, CHOCOLATE SENTIMENTS.

I used the new HOT FUDGE PREMIUM DYE INK.
While I love any chance I can get to create girly projects. You know in my house full of boys, I couldn't resist showing you how cute this CUPCAKE CUTIE stamp set can be on a boy card. Yes, I said, boy. It's all because of the cutie pie puppy stamp!
I pulled together a few other fun stamps and Die-namics to make this happen. The new BORDER IT-MOD BORDERS stamp set is a must have. They really are so versatile AND trendy and fun to use with all kids of projects. I used them to set my background here.
My card started with a FACTORY GREEN card base. Then I cut a SMOOTH WHITE layer to add over top. I used the new ORANGE FIZZ and FACTORY GREEN INKS and a touch of Blu Raspberry.
I then used the Insert it 3x4 Die-namics for my accent panel. I added a fun Notebook edge to the top and then added some journaling lines with the Journal It-For the Record stamp. I tied the whole notebook panel with some pretty orange bakers twine.
I added the "birthday boy" sentiment from BIRTHDAY SENTIMENTS, again, stamped in Blu Raspberry ink. Here a close up of the full panel. I just love it. I did add one extra arrow element from Right This Way stamp set with FACTORY GREEN INK.
The puppy was colored up with copic markers and I added a fun design to the balloon. It was easy to do by stamping a bit of triangles from MOD BORDERS in ORANGE FIZZ INK. I cut the puppy and balloon out and popped them up with foam dimensionals.
I needed just a little something else. So a few quick coordinating buttons did the job. One in Orange Fizz and another in FACTORY GREEN.
See....this set isn't just for girls!
