"Cupcake Birthday"


I seriously need to come up with some cooler names for my posts. Cupcake birthday is pretty boring. Oh well, I totally fell in love with this stamp when I saw it at my local stamp store. It comes in a 4 pack from Hero Arts. 4 different cupcakes! I think they are all cute. The paper I used is Bo Bunny. It is actually Christmas paper. It is called Jack Frost Stripes and Jack Frost Dots. It is kind of shimmery, which I don't think you can see on the scan. I stamped the cupcake on the stripe paper and cut it out and pieced it on the cup cake. I love doing that. I think it adds a lot to the image. I colored the cupcake with creamy caramel and you can't see it in the scan but I used a glitter pen on that little dot on the cherry.
Stamps: Hero Arts, Warmest Regards
Paper: Ruby Red, Brocade Blue, Basic Black, Whisper White, Bo Bunny DP
Ink: Stazon Black
Accessories: Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, Black Grosgrain Ribbon, Dimensionals, SU Markers, Glitter Pen

Great job--love the colors! I have this same set and stamped the cupcake bottom on silver paper to look like a foil cupcake cup used for baking the real thing. The set is so versatile...

What a yummy and beautiful card. The cupcake cup same as the background ties the card together soooo much, i love it. Altho the shimmer in the paper doesn't show the paper is great.
