Sprinkles of Life.... Happy Birthday

I just love this new Designer Series Paper Stack - Cherry on Top!!

The colors and images are all so bright and cheerful, don't you agree??

We start our card with a Watermelon Wonder (one of the new In Colors!!) card base, then added a layer of Bermuda Bay card stock, followed by a layer of the Cherry on Top DSP Stack.
We rounded the corners of each of these pieces with our Project Life Corner Rounder Punch.

We also added a 1" wide strip of the Cherry on Top DSP Stack to the card and flagged the end of this piece with our new Triple Banner Punch.  This punch makes the perfect flag/banner every time!!!  No need to eyeball it with your Paper Snips any longer - or try to line up a Square Punch to make the perfect banner.  It also cuts banners from 1 1/2" wide and 2" wide strips of paper, too (hence, the "triple" banner punch!).

Next, we stamped the top of the cupcake (in Watermelon Wonder ink on Watermelon Wonder card stock) and the bottom of the cupcake (in Bermuda Bay ink on Bermuda Bay card stock) - these images are from the new Sprinkles of Life Photopolymer Stamp Set.  Stampin' Up! has partnered with the Ronald McDonald House again this year - every time this stamp set is purchased, Stampin' Up! will donate $3 of the sale to the Ronald McDonald house.
We also punched the top of the cupcake (sorry, just the top! - the bottom was easily trimmed with our Paper Snips) with the Tree Builder Punch.  It looks like it's for more than just trees!

That cute little flower on the cupcake was also punched with the Tree Builder Punch.  There are several other tiny accessory pieces (like a bird, apple and rain drop) that can be punched with this Tree Builder Punch as well.  We also added a Rhinestone to the center of that tiny flower.

Finally, we stamped "Happy Birthday" from the Sprinkles of Life Photopolymer Stamp Set and punched this piece out with our 2 1/2" Circle Punch
