Time for another Thursday Challenge. This week it is a 

What do you think of when you look at this picture?

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #193-Home Sweet Home

Here is what I saw...

DSC#193-Sweet Layered Cupcake card created by Dawn Thomas #crackedpotstamper #stampinup

What do I use to create this beauty? aka Supply List

Stamp Set:  Sweet Cupcake

Paper:  Sweet Sugarplum, Rich Razzleberry, Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum, Wisteria Wonder, Thick Whisper White, Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer

Ink: Tip Top Taupe, Crumb Cake, Sahara Sand, Sweet Sugarplum, Blushing Bride, Pink Pirouette

Embellishments:  Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter

Tools:  Cupcake Cutout Framelits, Layering Oval Framelits, Big Shot, Magnetic Platform, Big Shot Die Brush, Fine Tip Glue Pen, Multi-Purpose Glue, Stampin' Trimmer, Stampin' Dimensionals

It's All in the Details

  • The thing that makes this card fabulous is all the LAYERS!
  • For the cutout "Sweet"-I cut the word "Sweet" out of each of the 6 colors used and then layered them together using the Fine Tip Glue Pen to stick them together.
  • After I had all of them adhered together, I then put a layer of glue (again with the Fine Tip Glue Pen) on top to make it shiny. This is so much fun and adds a little extra oomph!
  • Add a little glitter on the cupcake to make it extra yummy and sparkly because who doesn't love glitter!

Enamel Shapes...how the heck?

Enamel shapes....love them-hate them!

  • Love how they can add a pop of color and dimension to a card.
  • Hate how they end up all mixed up everywhere.

Well, have I got an idea for you!

Actually I saw another demonstrator (Linda Cullen) do this and I thought to myself, "Self, this is a great idea. You should do this!"

So I did. And now I want to share it with you because I'm certain you will love it as much as I do.

But first...at look at the "Before" pictures.

This first pic is before I opened them. When they arrive from Stampin' Up! they are in these pretty little packages all neat and tidy.

Enamel Shapes-Before.2
All neat in their packages...but not for long

 And then I opened them...

I tried to be very careful but this is what happened. Yuck!

Enamel Shapes-Before
Attempt to neatly open package...FAIL!

 

And now the moment you've all been waiting for...the "AFTER" pictures!

Enamel Shapes Organizer
This is actually the second page but I couldn't wait to show you

 

I printed the front page and the labels from the download on Linda's blog-easy peasy lemon squeezy!

Enamel Shapes-After.3
This is the first page-it has all the item #s listed along with the colors

Isn't it lovely?

And that's just the inside.

Take a peek at the outside.

Enamel Shapes-After.1
Love this project! It's super cute and organized.
