Cupcake Party

The Double D's Challenge is celebrating their third birthday so in honor of that occasion I made a card for their big day. The challenge theme is on the menu so I chose to include cupcakes on my menu offering.


The stamp set I used is from Crafter's Companion and is called Cupcake Party. I used my MISTI and placed my white panel in that and then I added ink to the background using the Hero Arts Omber Meadow ink pad and the Omber Spring Brights ink pad. I stamped the cupcake with Gina K. Designs Amalgam Jet Black ink and then colored it with Copics. I wanted sprinkles on my cupcake so adding the darker colors was no problem but in order to get lighter colors I first took a UniPosca white paint pen to add dots and then later I colored them in with lighter colors. I cut out the cupcake by hand and then popped it up on the stamped panel. I added this to a Wild Lilac card stock base and then inside I added another sheet of white card stock so I can add a sentiment or message there.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope your weekend will be a great one.

God bless,
Verna

I just love the background stamp! I was wondering how you did that many colors and of course, two difference ombré pads! Very cool look. The cupcake is so yummy looking too.

This looks like a party on a card!! Sweet Verna!!

Verna, not only is your cupcake super cute, but your background is fantastic, as well! I would have guessed it was designer paper. You coordinated your colors so well with the ombre pad. I'm glad you played along with our Double D 3rd birthday challenge. Good luck with the draw. There a lot of prizes up for grabs!
