You're My Cupcake

Hello friends!
Hope you are all having a great week!
Just wanted to play around with some stamps I haven't gotten out in a while and I was happy to use up some more of my never ending stash of papers too! LOL!

I have used the super fun stamp set from Newton's Nook called Love a la Carte for my card today.  I pulled out some Basic Gray papers that I've had for quite a while now.

I've layered those papers with some silver foil card stock and some Crisp Cantaloupe card stock from Stampin' Up!  The scribble line from the stamp set was heat embossed over the strip with white embossing powder.

For the cupcake image, I have colored it in with Copic markers, cut it out and added a "nest" of silver thread to the back and attached it over my sentiment panel.  The hearts on the background were stamped with some Crisp Cantaloupe ink and very lightly colored with a Copic marker.  I then added some glitter over top of the heart on the cupcake.

I hope you've enjoyed my heart filled cupcake card today!
Thanks for stopping in and I'll see you soon!

what a cute cupcake card, Vicki! love the little 'nest' as you put it that you have created behind the image. mine always turn out looking so messy, but yours is just as cute as can be and sets everything off so nicely!

please forgive me for not stopping by in ages. no excuse at all, I'm afraid. but I always love to see the fun things you have created!

enjoy your day! :)

Julie Curtis said...

this is such a cute card. How did you get the ribbon to curl like that? Did you tack it down after each curl? I think it looks so sweet like that. Hugz

Vicki, Hope you are okay... Not many posting from you this week. Different colors and they work really nice together. That is something I never use much is gray papers and I like gray, it goes with a lot of colors. So creative like your scribble line adds a nice touch. You take care.
Sending Warm Hugs, Pat

CaroleAnn said...
