Hello! Thanks for popping by today. I’ve been on a bit of a birthday card kick lately, and today is no exception! :)
I totally adore this cupcake stamp from the American Crafts Little Princess Collection… that cherry-on-top is just perfect! I stamped the cupcake onto my watercolor card base and colored it in with Derwent watercolor pencils. I then stamped the sentiment using stamps from the Stamps of Life (“Raccoons 2 Love“, stamped in StazOn Jet Black ink and “Birthday 4 Subways“, stamped in Delicata Golden Glitz ink), as well as the gold dots from the Simon Says Stamp “Celebrate” set (also stamped in the Golden Glitz ink).
To embellish my cupcake, I added Rock Candy distress Stickles to the chocolate icing for a “frosted” look, as well as some Wink of Stella clear glitter on the cherry and cupcake wrapper. For some dimension, I also added Glossy Accents to the cherry.
This card is very sparkly (if you follow my blog, you know I love to add some sort of sparkle to almost everything I create!), and I love how the cupcake turned out! I hope you’ve enjoyed, and be sure to stop back soon, as I have another cupcake themed card to share with you as well.
Thanks for stopping by! :)
Inspiration & Challenges
I was inspired by the colors in the Curtain Call “Jelly Bean” challenge to create this card, and I’ve entered it into the challenge.
