The Global Design Project crew is kicking off a theme challenge this week – and it’s really sweet. Literally. Our projects this week focus on sugary sweets – candy, cake and ice cream. What fun! I knew I wanted to use one of the sweet cupcakes from the Detailed Birthday Edgelits. I layered the cupcake with bright colors and mounted it on a mini pizza box. Sweet! Here’s my project:
And here’s the banner for the challenge that inspired my card:
- Birthday Cheer Bundle. I adore the big sentiments and sweet images in the Birthday Cheer Bundle – the Detailed Birthday Edgelits feature cupcakes and gifts that are cropped along the bottom to create a really cool border – here’s a look at this fun set and cool, coordinated Thinlits:There’s a great sample of how these Thinlits work on page 16 of the Occasions Catalog. I cropped the outline of the cupcake with the Thinlits die and cropped a cupcake with the cupcake Framelits die. With a Fine-tip Glue Pen I glued the white outline to the Coastal Cabana base. I cropped the heart with Melon Mambo and added that inside the outline, too, for a complete look.After everything dried, I washed the inside of the cupcake icing with a Wink of Stella Glitter Pen. Great shine with little work and little mess.
- All Adorned. My cupcake deserves a gorgeous backdrop, so it is framed with three layers of colorful circles. I played with several patterns and colors for the backdrop before deciding to give All Adorned a try. I love how this set works – it’s a corner pattern with an intricate design. I lined up the stamp along the corner of a 3″ x 3″ piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock and stamped it with Coastal Cabana ink. The stamp works with several sizes of squares – I especially love how it layered with the 3″ x 3″ panel. Here’s a closer look at what’s under the cupcake: All Adorned is a photopolymer stamp set that can be earned with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-Bration.

- Bright Colors. I pulled the colors for this project from the How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper – they are super-sweet, aren’t they? So bright, so sweet. Here’s a reminder of how cheery they are together:If you like this combination of Pineapple Punch, Coastal Cabana and Melon Mambo as much as I do, please save this for future reference:
