A pretty simple card with a cute little mouse. Thanks for stopping by.

 


Cupcakes for you

SS-Cupcakes4you

  • Stamps –
    • Impression Obsession MC181 “Cupcake”
    • Avery Elle “Oh Happy Day”
  • Die – Spellbinders Nestabilities “Standard Circles Large”
  • Patterned paper – BoBunny Secret Garden Collection: Roses (both sides)
  • Markers – KaiserCraft metallic gel pens
  • Cardstock – Bazzill

I’m doing a little catching up on cardmaking while I have a few days off. I’ve had this stamp set for a long time and it is always fun to pull something out of my stash. I decided to pick up on the roses on some of the cupcakes and repeat roses with the patterned paper. I colored the cupcakes with KaiserCraft gel pens that really work well with their 0.6mm tips for fine lines.

I created this card using a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #250. Unfortunately, I forgot to link it over there until the deadline had passed! Oh well! I will be linking to The Paper Players current challenge, which is #309: Something Sweet. A group of stamping friends and I have been virtually getting together for two years, so we decided to make cupcake cards for the occasion and this is mine. Thanks for stopping by.

I created this card with the current sketch at Mojo Monday: #461. A cardmaking group I belong to has a challenge to create a black and white card, so I set out to use this penguin set. It is very simple, using several patterned papers layered together with the image. Thanks for visiting.
