Punch Class Card #5

The last card we'll be making for Punch Class tomorrow is this little 3x3 card. This card uses the rounded tab punch to make the cupcake! I scored the bottom portion to look more like paper cupcake cups. Fun, eh? The cupcake top is embossed with iridescent ice.
At the class, we'll make the previous four cards, then this card will be made at a station where attendees will get a chance to play with some of the fun punch ideas on their handouts. They'll make the cupcake for this card, plus they some of the other shapes on their handout like flowers, butterflies, purses, baskets, pumpkins, and a whole lot of others to choose from. We'll also be making a punch template at that station to use when looking through the catalog or stamping and trying to decide which images work with each punch. {Birthday Wishes recipe}
Stamps: Wow Flowers (sentiment)
Ink: Wild Wasabi, Versamark
Paper: Wild Wasabi, More Mustard, Soft Sky, Whisper White, Close to Cocoa, East Coast Prep DSP
Accessories: Stickles, staples, iridescent ice ep, round tab punch, circle and scallop punches

Here's the first card I made using the cupcake idea. We are NOT making this one at the class. I like the way this turned out, but I don't have a spot for a sentiment, so I may squeeze one in somewhere. The cupcake tops use homemade patterned paper (the dot from the Three For You punch box set) and are embossed with iridescent ice. The inspiration for the dots comes from SU!'s new Bella Rose DSP that I used on the card.

Stamps: Three For You
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Pirouette Pink
Paper: Conqueror White, Whisper White, Close to Cocoa, Pirouette Pink, Bella Rose DSP
Accessories: Stickles, 5/8' chocolate grosgrain ribbon, iridescent ice ep, round tab punch, circle punch

I haven't had a chance to do any of the other Dare to Be Dirty challenges this week. Bummer! We leave Wednesday for the Stampin' Up! Convention in Salt Lake City. I might come back and try a few after I get back.
Edited to Add: Hey, I just read Friday's challenges. Both of these qualify for Taylor's Cupcake Challenge. Wahoo!
Who else is going to Convention? I'd love to meet up with you for a brief Kodak Moment!

Happy Friday!
