Cupcake Inspiration Challenge

I entered this invitation in a design challenge for Hope Stamps Eternal.  Great blog!  You should check them out.  They have tons of cute stuff.  This card was easy to make.  I layered the patterned paper over the card base and stamped 3 cupcakes on the white panel.  I stamped one additional cupcake, cut it out and adhered it in the middle using pop dots to give the card added dimension.  I colored them all with colored pencils and added crystal Stickles for a little sparkle.  I stamped “You’re invited”, but you can stamp any sentiment you choose under the cupcakes.

 

Sweet Cake Birthday Card

Stamped Items 009

I just had to make another birthday card using The Angel Company stamp set Little Cupcake.  I used the stamps “cake” and word “Sweet”.  The patterned cardstock featured is from the Tutti Frutti Cardstock Collection.  I stamped the cake and colored it in with colored pencils, then trimmed it out.  I used the Stardust Gelly Pen to highlight the cake plate and the centers of the flowers.  Then I applied Crystal Lacqeur to the flowers to add texture.  I adhered the cake to the punched circles using Pop Dots.  As you know, I like my cards simple and sweet and I think this one is just that!

Skinny Cake Greeting Card

Stamped Items 012

This is another image from The Angel Company stamp set Little Cupcake.  As I have said, I LOVE this set!  The card base is a piece of 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ white cardstock, folded.  I adhered 4 pieces of coordinating cardstock from Pop Rocks cardstock collection to the white card base.  Each rectangle measures 2″ x 2-5/8″.  I stamped “celebrate” (from the same stamp set) in the lower right hand corner and adhered a piece of chocolate colored ribbon across the middle of the card.  Next, I stamped the skinny cake on a piece of white cardstock and colored it with colored pencils.  I used Crystal Lacquer to highlight the chocolate frosting and Stardust Clear Gelly Pen to highlight the dots and candle.  You can’t tell from the picture, but the gelly pen adds a fine layer of glitter.  It is my latest “must have”.  After the lacquer dried I mounted the white cardstock to a piece of brown cardstock and adhered it to the card base using Pop Dots.

This original card design was from a birthday card from a dear friend of mine, Lesley Retherford.  She is an amazing rubber stamp artist and is always an inspiration to me… “Thank you, Lesley!”
