Cupcakes Anyone?

I played along with the Sweet Stop Sketch SSS153 as they're celebrating their 3rd birthday this month. They're challenging you to use one of their previous sketches, and I chose this one - the SSS58. The cupcake image is from an unknown stamp I won recently, and all the dsp is from MME Everyday Flair. The cupcake was colored with Copics and I used baby blue and frosted stickles, along with a blue glitter pen and a red Spica glitter pen. The clip is clear plastic and from a huge set I got from QVC years ago. It says "cheers" - perfect for a birthday celebration. I added some piercing on the corners which you can see better if you click the photo to enlarge it.

I had a request to make a birthday card for a friend who likes Purple, so while I had that cupcake stamp out, I made this card for her. I used scraps of rich purple card stock along with some BoBunny Jazmyne dsp and the labels four dies. I outlined the dies with white and purple markers and did the sentiment using a grommet tag and some brads. I added lots of sparkle with glitter pens to the image and used some purple gingham ribbon from my stash.

I hope your week is off to a great start, and thank you for stopping by today!

Carol, both cards are very pretty. I love the purple card and you must have enjoyed making a "purple" card. Love those Stickles on the first card and that plastic clip is quite different. I hope you have a good day.

Yummy cupcake cards Carol. Love both colors. The touch of sparkle looks great on the first one, and I really like the tab. The DP is so pretty on the second card, also like the lines around the edges. Thank you for playing with us at The Sweet Stop this week!
