Whimsy Stamps | Calories Shmalories Slimline Rainbow Card

Have you heard the news?! I've joined the Whimsy Stamps Video Team! I'll be bringing you Fresh Friday inspiration through the month! In case you're new to me - my style is clean and simple and I love to mix stamps, dies, stencils, etc. to make one finished card! Just like I'm doing today! I used the Calories Shmalories Stamp Set along with the Slimline Windows Die Set and the Rainbows 6x6 Paper Pad to make a bright and yummy card!

I LOVE a good cupcake! My sister makes the best cupcakes I've ever had and she's always making them look so fancy and colorful! I stamped out each of the cupcakes from the Calories Shmalories Stamp Set and colored them with Copic Markers. I kept each of the cupcakes a chocolatey color and mixed up the icing to give them a bunch of yummy flavors.

I used my scissors to cut out the cupcakes with a small white border and set them aside to work on the rest of the card. I used the Slimline Windows Die to cut a white frame, but I wanted to add lots of color to the background. I grabbed what could most definitely be my most favorite paper pad EVER! The Rainbows 6x6 Paper Pad! I FINALLY got my hands on this! It's a hot item! Every time I checked it was sold out! But as I'm typing this it's still in stock in the Whimsy Store ... so RUN! There's not a single pattern that I don't love!

I used the Slimline Windows Die to cut a piece of the Rainbows 6x6 Paper to use for the background of the card. A slimline card is taller than the patterned paper, so I cut the paper in half and carefully lined it up with the Slimline Windows Die and cut twice so that I would have each little window cut from the paper. All I had to do was use a bit of glue to puzzle piece the patterned paper into the Slimline Windows frame I cut from the white cardstock!

I stamped and white heat embossed the sentiment from the Calories Shmalories Stamp Set onto the center piece of patterned paper and popped that piece up with foam tape for dimension.

I added all four cupcakes to the card with foam squares and covered them with clear shimmer - and that's it! I hope you enjoyed my first card as part of the Whimsy Stamps Video Team! I'll be back soon with more Whimsy Stamps inspiration!
