Yesterday was Rachel’s birthday and I went to Georgetown Cupcake. They make the BEST cupcakes I have ever tasted! So many choices, it’s hard to pick just one! My husband, daughter, and I each got a different one and shared. YUM! I also brought one home for Rachel. I love the adorable pink box they package them in but I still had to add a sweet little touch.
I used the Sweet Cupcake Stamp Set and coordinating Cupcake Cutouts Framelits to decorate the box.
This is a Two-Step Stampin’ set. Combine individual stamps to build the final image you want in the colors you want. You can see in the photo of the stamp set that there are 3 layers to the top and bottom…that’s what gives it such a realistic look. The photopolymer stamps make it easy to build each layer. I used Crumb Cake Ink for the frosting even though it looks twp tone. For the bottom I used 3 different inks: So Saffron, Peekaboo Peach, and Sahara Sand. (*I experimented with different colors before I decided on these.) I love how it makes it look just like the cupcake…sprinkles and all!
The coordinating Cupcake Cutouts Framelits Dies makes it easy to cut the pieces out. I love the word dies included in this set! I layered everything on the box starting with the Delicate White Doily. I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut the Powder Pink circle. I adhered it all together with liquid glue then wrapped it up with 1/2″ Finely Woven Powder Pink Ribbon. On the inside I used the Stylized Birthday Stamp Set to stamp Happy Birthday in melon mambo ink. I layered the greeting on a powder pink square I cut using the Layering Squares Framelits.
I know Rachel will enjoy this sweet treat as much as I did. It was worth waiting in the long line. Here’s a few photos from our sweet adventure. (My daughter and I are at the very end of this line!)
