Hello Cupcake Easel - January Joy of Sets Blog Hop for visiting my blog.  As part of this blog hop we are all making Easel cards using current and/or retired SAB (Sale-a-bration) products..

Hello Cupcakes is one of the new SAB offerings. It is a photopolymer stamp that makes very yummy looking ice cream cones.

It is coordinated with the new Gingham Gala DSP.

The Easel is make by scoring a 4  by 11" Balmy Blue card stock at 5 1/2" and one of the half pieces at  2 3/4".

Make a mountain fold at both score lines to form the basic Easel card.

A piece of Balmy Blue card stock cut at 5 1/2 by 4" forms the basis of the art piece.  On that is adhered a layer of Whisper white card stock embossed with the Trellis Embossing Folder.  A 1 1/2" piece of Balmy Blue gingham Gala DSP is adhered to the left side of this embossed piece with a die cut strip (Tasteful Trim Die) added at the DSP edge.

The art piece is  a 2 1/2 by 3 1/2" piece of Whisper White card stock.  Both top corners are punched with two of the Trio Corner punches (the floral followed by the corner rounder); the bottom two corners are punched only with the corner rounder punch. This art piece is matted with a 2 3/4 by 3 3/4" piece of Balmy Blue card stock which has all four of its corners rounded. 

Close up
Early Espresso ink is used to stamp the cupcake base; the two scoops of ice cream are stamped in Balmy Blue ink.  Some Lucky Limeade sprinkles were added to the top scoop.

To make the ice cream look "creamier" I added a little bit of texture paste to the top and between the layers of the scoops.  While the paste was still wet I sprinkled some Dazzling  Diamonds over it.

A red heart on a stick was stamped on the top scoop.

The sentiment is added on a single notched banner adhered to the bottom of the art piece.

The space on the left of the art piece needed something, so I added a bow made with 1/8" white organza ribbon.

To keep the card in the upright position, a "kick plate" is adhered near the bottom end with Dimensionals

 The card, however, does close for mailing and fits into a regular envelope which I lined with the same Gingham Gala DSP.   No extra postage should be needed.

Fabulous card! I finally found it, the link you gave originally isn't working and I'm thinking that's the one that was added to the hop. Let's hope your before and after adjust their posts soon so your post doesn't get lost it's too good to not be seen <3

I love the colours here - I'm really not sure about the cupcake images themselves but I'm sure they'll grow on me.
