Rainbow Layered Cupcake Birthday Card with Channin


Hello friends! It's Channin here and today I have a colorful birthday card to share. For today’s card I use the fun Color Layering Cupcake stamp set and matching die from Hero Arts! Read to find out what simple MISTI stamping trick I use to create rainbow gradation frosting for my cupcakes! 

To create this card I first stamped the two cupcake liners. I started with the base layer (the more solid layer) in either Pool Party or Thistle. I then stamped the detail layer in either Blue Raspberry or Grape Slush. Next, I stamped the base cake layer in Soft Vanilla. I then stamped the detail layer for the cake first in Soft Vanilla and then I inked up only the bottom of the stamp in Pumpkin Pie and stamped to create a slight gradation. Next, I stamped the frosting starting with the base layer. I used an ink blending brush to apply Taffy Reactive Ink over a portion of the stamp and then stamped it. Next, I inked up the middle section of the stamp again with a blending brush with Lemon Drop and then stamp. Lastly, I inked up the last portion of the stamp in Splash again with the blending and then stamped. I then positioned the detail layer for the frosting and then inked and stamped the detail layer in the same manner I did the base layer. Lastly I finished up the cupcakes by stamping some sprinkles in Taffy, Lemon Drop, and Splash inks. 

Next, I stamped two cherries. First, I did the base layer in Fruit Punch and then used Pale Tomato and Strawberry for the detail layer. After I stamped the cherries and cupcakes I die cut them out with the matching dies and then adhered cherries on top. 

Next, I positioned my cupcakes over my card front and used a piece of washi tape to hold them in place. I then positioned a sentiment, picked it up with my MISTI, tucked a piece of scrap paper under the cupcakes to protect the card base and then stamped the sentiment in INTENS-ified Black. I then removed the cupcakes and then stamped the sentiment again onto the card front. Lastly, I finished the card by adhering the cupcakes to the card front and then added clear lacquer to the cherries.

I hope you enjoyed my card! Thank you so much for stopping by!
