JAI #217: Just Add Cupakes, Cake or Dessert


This week at Just Add Ink we have a theme challenge for you.  We want you to add cupcakes, cake or dessert to your creation.  It's a fun idea and a great idea for a challenge.  Having said that I had a slight panic when I read the theme for the week as I didn't think I had any stamps that fit the theme.  Then I remembered a set I had recently purchased that had a cupcake image.

I also decided to use some of my left over Hip Hip Hooray Kit pieces on the card.  You might also spot a Sale-A-Bration favourite on the card.  I was very excited to see that Stampin' Up have included the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder in the upcoming catalogue.  I really love it and I'm glad to have it for at least another year.

The stamp set was never available here, much to my disappointment.  I really love the whole "Keep Calm" idea and was lucky enough to get my hands on the stamp set.

I thought the cupcake image was really cute, so I just had to include a whole row of them on the inside of the card too.

The design team have come up with a heap of creative ways to interpret the challenge theme this week.  What will you do? See you over at Just Add Ink.

Bye for now,



  1. Tina I love this card and the sentiment is so cool!!

  2. I also panicked when I saw it was a cupcake/cake them - but ended up going with an oldie but a goodie stamp set. This is such a fun sentiment Tina and I love your cupcakes inside your card too!

  3. Ha who wouldn't calm down if they sat down to eat a cupcake - lol! Love how you highlighted the cupcake medallion with the stripy flags. xxx

  4. Very cute card Tina. I really like that CS/paper you have stamped your words on. I've been looking for something like that lately actually. Chantell x x

  5. Well considering you didn't think you had any stamps to fit the challenge you did extremely well - love that little row of cupcakes and who can go past a 'keep calm' sentiment. Awesome! x

  6. Love your show ribbon effect Tina..great idea! and that sentiment is just perfect for many occasions me thinks..:0)xxx

  7. "Keep Calm and Eat a Cupcake" well ok, if I must! A gorgeous card Tina and the cupcakes inside. Lou xo

  8. This is such a sweet fun card Tina, and I love how you have continued the theme inside with the row of cupcakes :)
