Mmmmm Cupcakes!


Holy cow! Just looking at this gives me a sugar rush!! Taylor, over at the Taylored Expressions blog had a super cute sketch to do last Friday and I just KNEW I wanted to use her cupcakes in it. In order to make the icing look SUPER DUPER yummy, I had to top with Pink Shimmerz. :) Because, seriously, I could do with little cake and much icing!! :)))) I also put Crystal Effects on top of the Shimmerz because I just adore that combination. Here's a little close up of how shimmery shiny it is.


Almost blinding, I know!! LOL! This card also has quite a bit of dimension, so I thought I would include a side view for fun times.



I'm having some girlfriends over to stamp this evening, so I hope to actually accomplish something (aside from stuffing my face and gabbing). haha!

Oh yeah!! I had a reader request the instructions on how to make the card for my last post here., so here goes!

Base cardstock is Pretty in Pink cut at 9" x 4.5" and scored in half
Panels are whisper white base cut at 1 3/8" x 4 3/8" with Soft Suede atop at 1 1/4" x 4 3/8"
The Soft Suede pieces were run through my Backgrounds I large circle Texturz plate
The Pumpkin Pie scalloped circle was cut out using my Scallop Circle #2 die
The Whisper White circle was cut out using my Circle Scissors at ~ 3"
I stamped the greeting from Flight of the Butterfly in Soft Suede ink
The butterfly was cut out using the Butterflies die and using the Old Olive dp from the level 3 hostess kit
Ribbon used is Pumpkin Pie grosgrain and I used a large Orange rhinestone brad from the Fire Circles rhinestones.
I free-handed the stitched look on the border of the circle with my Old Olive marker

I hope this helps! :)
