Cupcake Mouse Birthday | May 2023

Updated: Aug 20, 2023

Hi Friends! Gerda Steiner Designs released this adorable stamp set just in time for my nephew’s birthday and I couldn’t have been more excited with this release.

For this card I used the Gerda Steiner Designs “Cupcake Mice” stamp set and Simon Says Stamp “Streamer Ribbons” die set. I stamped the mouse and cupcake image on white, alcohol marker friendly cardstock and colored the images with my Copic markers. I added Glossy Accents to the mouse’s party hat and put a layer of Nuvo Glitter Drops (Blue Lagoon) on the top of the cupcake. Before the Glitter Drops dried, I sprinkled a heavy coating of Tim Holtz’s Rock Candy Glitter on it so it would look candy-coated and sparkly.

I used a pre-cut piece of A2 sized turquoise cardstock for my bottom card-front panel and then used a rectangular die to cut the white cardstock panel so that it would be a tad smaller than the turquoise piece. I splattered the white cardstock panel with the Sky and Anise watercolor paints from the Art Philosophy Watercolor Confetti Set. After the splatter dried, I glued down the streamers I cut using Simon Says Stamp’s Streamer Ribbons” and’s Rainbow cardstock pad.

Next, I put the splattered card panel in my Misti stamping tool and placed the mouse and cupcake where I wanted them to go to help me better determine the sentiment stamp placement. After I stamped the sentiment, I put Spellbinders’ adhesive foam squares on the back side of the mouse and cupcake and adhered them to the front card panel.

To complete the card, I glued some rhinestones from the Taylored Expressions Rainbow Rhinestones on two corners of the card and adhered the decorated card panel to the turquoise one. I attached these to a top folded, A2 card base and that wrapped it up.

I hope you enjoyed the card. Thank you so much for stopping by to see me - I appreciate you doing so!

Until next time… happy making!
