Cupcakes & Carousels “Last Thursdays” Class Cards

Hi Stamping Friends!

Once again the month is flying by and it's already time for the "Last Thursdays" monthly card class coming this week!  After the Retired List was released, I realized that there were several stamps sets & accessories that I still wanted to play with a little bit more!  So, I sat down and created a few cards that I've been itching to do with the Special Reason Bundle, Custom Tee Bundle and Cupcakes & Carousels Kit.  I also wanted to try out the beautiful High Tide set—don't worry, that's not retiring!  Whew!

Today, I'm sharing my super-quick, super-easy birthday card created with the Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit!  You'll be able to play with these cute accents at the "Last Thursdays" class!  If you're in the area, I hope you can join me!

Background Basics—I started by layering a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Bermuda Bay card stock onto a Very Vanilla card base.  Next, I added some pretty papers from the Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Paper stack measuring 3-3/4" x 2" for the top piece and 3-3/4" x 3" for the bottom piece.  I finished by fishtailing the ends of a 4-1/4" x 1/2" strip of So Saffron card stock and adhering it right where the two DSP papers meet.

Lovely Label—I colored the Carousel Birthday stamp with the markers from the Retiring & On Sale Now Bermuda Bay & Calypso Coral 2-pack.  Then, I stamped the image onto one of the gold foil labels from the kit.  It's popped up with Dimensionals.

Finishing Accents—I some of the Pool Party Baker's Twine in a bow onto the ring of one of the mini tassels, both from the kit, and attached them to the card front with a Glue Dot.  I also added a small gold heart from the Metallic Enamel Shapes.

Two Cool—I switched up the DSP on this second version of the Cupcakes & Carousels card.

Finishing Accents—This time I tied a bow with the Calypso Coral ombré ribbon from the kit and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  I also used some Rhinestone Jewels instead of the enamel shapes.
