Punch a Party

This was THE fastest card I think I've ever put together.  In preparing for Saturday's workshop, I had some strips of paper left with the balloons from It's My Party Designer Series Paper Stack and since I had been using the balloon punch from the Party Punch Pack, I decided I wanted to use the cupcake for this one.

Whisper White Thick Card Stock -  8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Designer Series Paper Strip  - whatever you have left over - this one is 5 1/2" x 1 1/2"
Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry and Mint Macaron cut with the smallest square from the Square Framelits Die
Party Punch Pack Cupcake  - punched first on Whisper White, then punched with 1" square punch evenly spaced around the cupcake.

I popped up the white piece with half of a Stampin' Dimensional on each corner.  Then blinged it up with a Rhinestone. 

 Now I know what to do with the rest of my strips of DSP that were left over!  Yayyyy!

Thank you for looking in today - time for me to head to bed to be refreshed for tomorrow's (today's) party!  That's not confusing, is it!   ~ Donna


  1. I love this! I have been wanting to see more cards using the cupcake punch and you did it! I love the strop with the balloons too. This came together so well! I really love it. So fun to punch them out of the white and pop them up on the colored squares. I have a new birthday card to make now. I had some strips left from the paper last year with candles on it or something birthday related. I knew I needed to get that punch pack! Of course the sentiment is just plain cute on there as well! Some of the simple ideas are the best!
