Hi, hello! Today is a two blog post day, with this one and The Greetery’s Breath of Spring Day 1 reveal post, which you can find here.
And if you’re not an Instagram-er, you can see today’s IG Hop project right here. Each month Altenew releases another Mini-Delight stamp and coordinating die, either individually or as part of a subscription. This month we have the Cupcake stamp and die, and it’s pretty sweet! (You see what I did there.)

I set up the MISTI to make this task a little quicker and easier, die cutting a bunch of blank cupcake shapes and inserting them one by one, into one single die cut opening, then stamping each cupcake, one layer at a time, with different colors.
From left to right, the colors I used are as follows:
Frosty Pink, Cotton Candy, Coral Berry, Ruby Red from the Red Cosmos set.
Sunray, Chamomile, Snap Dragon from the Golden Sunset ink family.
Sea Breeze, Turquoise, Tide Blue, Starlight – Deep Blue Seas ink family.
Pink Diamond, Pinkalicious, Rubellite, Razzleberry from the Cherry Blossom family.
Wisteria, Hydrangea, Ultraviolet from the Enchanted Garden ink set.
I used the sentiment stamp and coordinating die to add the greeting, then finished off with some enamel dots to match each of the cupcakes. A strip of patterned paper from my stash along the bottom anchors the color scheme.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
