The cupcake card making continued for the better part of a morning, and here are two more. The first one is based on the current Retrosketch challenge.
And it's another entry to Virginia's View Patterned Paper challenge.
On our way to Canada last weekend, we made a quick stop in Buffalo so I could run into Buffalo Stamps & Stuff to pick up some stamp cleaner that I can't seem to find anywhere else. I actually didn't come out of there with too much extra, but I did pick up an Avery Elle stamp set "Cupcakes." The store has a monthly coupon that I was able to apply to the stamp set. The sentiment is from Lockhart which I've owned for years.
The cardstock is Bazzil, and the patterned papers are from "The Good Life" by Fancy Pants (the cupcake liner) and "Mother Goose" by Graphic 45 (the stars). I used clear Stickles to add the glitter to the cupcake which shows up a lot better in a photograph than the Gelly Roll Stardust pen (which I love in real life!) I colored the cherry with a Copic marker and bumped it out with a bit of dimensional tape.
The last cupcake card started with a stamp from Mama Elephant's "Carnival Toppers." This time I stamped the cupcake liner on some vellum and colored it on the back with a Copic marker. Once again the Gelly Roll glitter pen looks "dirty" in the photo.
I love this sentiment from the Mama Elephant "Carnival Toppers." It was the sentiments in this set that prompted the purchase and started this cupcake card craze.
The card is a ready-made one by Memory Box, and it turns out to be an odd shade of pink. I finally found a Copic that matched it after trying a couple others that didn't work so well. I added two strips of Little B Washi tape to the top and bottom of the card.
I think that's it for cupcakes. Now I'm hungry for one. I should head out to Deb's. She makes the most beautiful cupcakes ever!
