Honey Bee Stamps Blog Hop

Today I’ve got a sweet yet calorie free card treat to share with you featuring a really fun wafer thin die set from Honey Bee Stamps called Cupcake Builder.


Say it with me: oh, for cute!


This little cupcake builder die set has so many possibilities! I kept it pretty simple, using some of my favorite Distress Oxides of late to create my pink frosting layers. I also added a layer of shimmer to the frosting using a Nuvo Aqua Shimmer pen. I even created some simple pink stripes on my candle using a Copic marker.


A added a few score lines to the cupcake liner/holder thingie, and the result is a simple birthday greeting that is pretty clean and simple!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

NOW FOR THE HOP DETAILS:  Please leave a comment on each blog in the hop for a chance to win the Honey Bee giveaway (two winners $30 gift certificate each)! Winners will be announced on this page of the Honey Bee Stamps blog on February 1st.

    Such a beautiful CAS card that really packs a punch. And just change the pink to blue for a masculine card. 🙂

    The shading using the distress oxide inks is really good on the icing. The shimmer pen adds a nice touch also.

    Love the colours of the cupcake. Precolouring a scrap and then diecutting in the area for the desired look is a much better idea than trying to blend on a precut diecut. That’s the tip I’m taking away today. Thanks for sharing.

    Such a lovely card and I really enjoyed your video! Scoring the cupcake liner is the perfect touch. Your pretty pink shading behind the frosting makes me think of a sugary cloud glowing around the cupcake 🙂
