Just Don’t Take Away My Cupcakes!

I’m not quite to the point where I don’t want to have any more birthdays.  I mean really–they’re an excuse to eat cupcakes, guilt-free!!  I don’t know if you’re with me on that or not, but either way, I know you’ll be sad to see this stamp go, if you have small kids in your life.  Simple Birthday Thanks (see it online) is retiring!

While this sweet stamp doesn’t look very flexible, I have a few suggestions that make it a TERRIFIC one to own if your kids need to send thank yous, or if you make many kid-directed birthday cards.

Before you mount the stamp, try using a hobby blade (x-acto knife) to cut the message out from the center.  Then mount the cupcake on one side, and the words on the opposite side of the block.

When you mount this way, it’s easy to make projects that don’t include the words when you don’t want them.

Plus it’s easy for kids to find creative ways to color this cupcake.  Here are some cupcakes that Abby did with Aquapainters (my favorite kid-coloring tool) when she was 5.  You can add back the ‘thank you’ message easily if you want that on your cupcake.

  1. I didn’t mount the words separate. When I am stamping the cupcake and it will be cut out, I just stamp on the backside of the dsp. This way the words don’t show anyway. Also I use markers and just omit the words if I am stamping on a card layer. I probably would have done it your way, had I thought of it first. Love your samples.
