Welcome to Step it Up Sunday!

You know I am a huge fan or clean and simple (CAS) design. Sometimes it is fun to step it up a little. Even though my stepped up version is still pretty simple for most. #truewords #5minutecards. For today’s Step it Up Sunday post I am sharing 2 cards that both feature the Stampin’Up! Cupcakes and Carousels Suite of products.

PLUS be sure to read to the end for your chance to WIN a Cupcake and Carousel Embellishment Kit!!

  • My simple version begins with Very Vanilla Cardstock. The Cupcake and Carousel Designer Series Paper uses Very Vanilla so to have it all coordinate I went with a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″ base and a 5 x 3 3/4 top layer.
  • A wide strip of that beautiful harlequin paper from the Cupcake and Carousel Designer Series Paper helps to anchor this simple card
  • The greeting is from the Suite Sentiments stamp set found in the Stampin’Up! Occasions Catalog. I stamped it in Bermuda Bay ink and finished it with the Triple Banner Punch
  • Dimensionals between all the layers give a little extra pop

  • The same sentiment is stamped again in Bermuda Bay but this time on one of the super fun vanilla and gold foil labels
  • I used a little bigger rectangle of the Cupcakes and Carousel Designer Series Paper to anchor the card.
  • The gold sparkly baker’s twine in both So Saffron and Pool Party are festive and a great way to attach a couple lengths of the Calypso Coral Ribbon and a mini Vanilla tassel
  • A smattering of sequins down the side was attached with my Fine Tip Glue Pen
