Hello everyone!

My favourite new thing from our Autumn-Winter mini catalogue is the very cute Build a Cupcake punch. With one punch movement you cut out a cupcake base and frosting top as well as a candle with flame, cherry and sprinkles! Simply punch out a couple of colours and you can create your own cupcake.

I have used some 'boy' colours below to make a birthday card. The colours are Pacific point, Bashful blue, Real red and Wild wasabi. The strip of patterned paper is from the /brights patterns designer series paper stack. This is a really great set of patterned papers comprising 40 sheets - 2 each of 2 double sided designs in the 10 Brights colours. The papers measure 12"x12".

I have found the best adhesive to use with these little punched out shapes is the Multipurpose liquid glue which some of you may know as Tombow glue. It has a fine point tip at one end for fine pieces (like these punched shapes) and a wider tip at the other for adhering larger surfaces such as a photo.

Well I hope this inspires you a little! Happy Stamping!
Love, Claire
