Cupcake Birthday

Hello Stamping Friends.  I'm very excited for today because I get to teach someone the basics of stamping.  She loves to make cards at classes, but everything is all cut out and ready to go for her.  Now that's not a bad thing, but she would like to know how to get the measurements, how to use a paper cutter, how to use markers ... stuff like that.  So, that's what I'll teach her.   Have you ever wondered those things as well?  Just send me an email and I'll either set up a class (in the Milwaukee/Metro area) or make a DVD to send out.

Now, onto the card.  This is a CASE using the Petal Cone die found in the Occasions Mini Catalog.  The base is early espresso run through the cone die, then trimmed the bottom and side, and ran it through the paper crimper.  The pretty in pink designer paper (from the subtles pack) is cut from the die on the scalloped portion.  The melon mambo pompom trim adds a little more dimension and the cherry on top is a 3/4" circle from the red glitter paper.  The ribbon banner on the front is also from the die, and the stamp is from the Create a Cupcake set.
