Introducing Baker's Dozen

Welcome to the final day of the Papertrey Ink January countdown. 

Today's post is all about the the new Baker's Dozen stamp set.  What a sweet set!  It's been such a pleasure to work with this delightful set.  With its many possibilities and adorable images, a stamp set doesn't get any sweeter than this!

So, let me get started...
The Baker's Dozen is a collection of thirteen cupcake images, one for each month of the year plus a versatile extra!
Here's a birthday card featuring the March cupcake.  I paired it with the previously released Beautiful Butterflies stamp set.
I stamped a beautiful butterflies backdrop for the pretty cupcake and frame in a color combo of blueberry sky, sweet blush and harvest gold.  I then attached black glitter tape along the bottom edge and finished the card off with a couple large gems.
This one is for celebrating a birthday, no matter the month.  A fun selection of cupcakes were stamped one on top of the other in a colorful combo of raspberry fizz, plum pudding, hawaiian shores, orange zest and limeade ice. 
The stamped panel was trimmed apart by hand to fit the sentiment (from the soon to be release Layered Banner Banter stamp set) perfectly, revealing the limeade ice card base below.  Here's How: First, create a template by stamping celebrate and trimming a curve by hand that follows the bottom edge of the sentiment. Trace the template edge onto the desired spot, trim and erase. It could't be easier!

Well, that's all I've got for you today. Just remember... everything you've seen peek of today will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning January 15th
