Welcome to this month's Blog Hop featuring projects using two-step stamping. My project is a 12" x 12" scrapbook layout using the Sweet Cupcake Stamp Set. This is a simple layout that can be used in your scrapbooks. And, by simply switching the top and bottom around, you will get a different layout. When doing that, you save time by not having to create a new layout.
The base of this layout is a piece of 12" x 12" Crumb Cake Cardstock from the Neutrals Best 12" x 12" Cardstock Pack.
The top half of the layout has three areas for journaling and/or photographs. The layers are:
- 3 3/4" x 5 1/4" Whisper White Cardstock
- 4" x 5 1/2" Berry Burst Cardstock
The center one includes:
- 4 1/4" x 5 3/4" Silver Foil Sheet
Two Berry Burst bows from the In-Color Bitty Bows were added in the corners.
The bottom half of this layout is a 5" x 12" Berry Burst piece of the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack (DSP). A 12 inch piece of the Berry Burst 1/2" Finely Woven Ribbon is attached to the top of the DSP with SNAIL Adhesive.
The Happy Birthday Thinlits Die was cut through the Big Shot on Whisper White Cardstock. It is easy to cut apart to change it from a two-line to a one-line sentiment. It is attached with a Fine Tip Glue Pen to a 2" x 7" piece of Berry Burst Cardstock and matted with a 2 1/4" x 7 1/4" piece of Whisper White Cardstock. A Rhinestone Jewel is added to the "i".
Even though the cupcake images in the Sweet Cupcake Stamp Set are for three-step stamping, I used two images, so it would two-step stamping (and go with our theme). Crumb Cake Ink was used for the cupcake base. Berry Burst Ink was used for the cupcake top. The first images for the top and bottom of the cupcake were inked up and then stamped off once on scratch paper and then stamped on Whisper White Cardstock. The second images were inked up and stamped on top of the first images with full-strength ink. The Cupcake Cutout Framelit Dies were used to cut out the top and bottom of the cupcake images through the Big Shot.
Here are the layers on the cupcake embellishment. They were all put through the Big Shot to cut the shapes and adhered together with SNAIL Adhesive.
- Bottom Layer - Crumb Cake Cardstock cut with an oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.
- Second Layer - Whisper White Cardstock cut with a scallop from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.
- Third Layer - Silver Foil Sheet cut with an oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.
The cupcake bottom was attached with SNAIL Adhesive. The cupcake top was attached with Dimensionals. Clear Wink of Stella was added to the cupcake top and it was finished off with a Rhinestone Jewel.
