Stamp Review Crew: Sprinkles of Life Edition

http://stampreviewcrew.blogspot.com/2015/07/stamp-review-crew-sprinkles-of-life.html
Wow, it is the first Monday of July, and that means it is time for another Stamp Review Crew hop! We are a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators that get together on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of every month to create a pile of projects featuring one stamp set each hop. Intriguing, right?! You can find the master blog roll, and all of our past hops, by clicking on the banner above, or click here.

This time we are featuring the very special set, Sprinkles of Life. It is so special because for every set sold, Stampin' Up! donates $3 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities! And it has a coordinating punch :)

If you are following along in order, then I am the first stop on the hop this time! Or maybe you came from the last stop, Linda Callahan. Awesome, right!

For my project this time, I make a giant card. You know, for those times when you need a lot of space for all of the messages to be written by everyone in your department at work. A little A2 card just won't cut it! This on is a full sheet of paper folded in half, so it is 5½"x8½". And the polka dot panel is embossed and stamped :) The whole thing did not fit in the embossing folder at the same time, but I made in three passes, lining up the last row of dots each time, letting that row hang over the edge of the platform and placing the top cutting plate just short of the edge of the embossing folder to avoid getting folder-edge creases.

Here is a close up of the cupcakes. I stamped them on watercolor paper and watercolored the frosting with a base of Tangelo Twist and then layered on some Watermelon Wonder to give it some depth. The cupcake wrappers are done in Tip Top Taupe and watercolored also. I cut those out by hand, which was quite easy to do. The frosting was punched out with the Tree Builder punch though.
And I have discovered that the Watermelon Wonder is one of those colors that just does not photograph well for me, I apologize....

That's it for me, time to go check out what Betty Traciak is up to :)
