Happy Cupcake Day!

Well, this is the THIRD time I've typed this post. I saved it as a draft, went back to edit it, and it had disappeared. You think I would have learned after the first time, but noooooooooo....I did it again! Geez!

Anyway, the stamps in this set are from the new My Favorite Things release. The set is called Icing On The Cake . There are a lot of stamps in the set to give you tremendous creative possiblities. I like that! :-)

I stamped the cupcake and the sentiment on white cardstock using Versafine Onyx Black ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder.

The cupcake was colored with Tombow markers, then I added a little Stickles glitter glue on the icing. I also put just a dot of Diamond Glaze on the cherry for dimenson, and to make it shiny!

The swirly border around the cupcake sentiment is a separate stamp included in the set. I stamped it , as well as the red scalloped border on the outside using VersaColor pigment ink, then embossed with clear ep.

I used my square Nestabilities to cut and emboss the frames for the cupcake. The designer paper is from Heidi Grace. I found it on my Dallas shopping trip a few weeks ago.

As you can see, the only embellishment I added was a couple of pink brads.

If I was really smart and energetic I would start wrapping Christmas gifts after I figure out something quick and easy for dinner. But is that gonna happen??????? Nope. Not tonight. I have other things on my list that take priority right now. I will start spazzing about the unwrapped gifts soon enough. LOL!

So that's it for me tonight, peeps! Thanks so much for checking in. More tomorrow.

Carolyn King said... are MORE IMPORTANT than wrapping gifts anyway, right?

Dont the elves come there and wrap when you are sleeping???

I LOVE this card--so worth putting everything else on the backburner. Love the framed sentiment and the sparkly cupcake.
