Hello! It’s Jill from Jill Cameron Creations. I’m sharing this super fun (and a little 80’s inspired) cupcake day one layer card. Let’s check out how to create this card.

All of the products used are linked at the bottom of this post.

Cupcake Day One Layer Card (almost)

I started by fussy cutting masks of the large cupcake and cherry image from the Cake Day stamp set. I like to use Avery repositionable labels to create masks. These are pretty inexpensive and I can print on them without the ink smearing.

Remember that when you do one layer stamping, you want to stamp the topmost image first. In, this case the front image is the cherry. I used the mask of the cupcake to help get the correct placement of the cherry on the cardstock panel.

I’m using alcohol ink safe cardstock since I’m going to color the images with Copic markers.

Next, I stamped the cupcake image. I used the new Eclipse Black ink to stamp and man oh man is this some amazing ink! It dries super fast and is super dark black.

Then, I placed the masks over my images so I could use the Sweet Sprinkles stencil to create a fun background. The key to getting great results using masks is how you fussy cut the mask. The cupcake image has a really nice bold line so cut more towards the inside of the line. This lessens the halo around the image. I used Distress Oxide inks in Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry, and Peacock feathers. I turned the stencil to get overlapping sprinkles.

Once the sprinkle background was dry (it doesn’t take but a minute or two), I colored the cupcake with Copic markers.

I added glitter brush marker all over the cupcake liner and Glossy Accents on the cherry to finish it off.

Finally, I stamped part of the sentiment directly on the panel and heat embossed it in black embossing powder. The other part of the sentiment, I stamped in Versamark ink on black cardstock and embossed it in white.
