Cupcakes and Card Patterns
OK, here's another card I got done yesterday, while the hubby and the kid were away. This card follows Card Pattern 76 and it also features cupcakes, which is the challenge for Crazy 4 Challenges this week. I used a 4 1/4 inch square card of cream cardstock. To that, I added some striped patterned paper, and also added a solid pink edge, done in a Martha Stewart punch. The "brads" are three tiny cupcakes from a punch I've had for quite awhile. The two bigger cupcakes are my first attempt at paper piecing. I stamped the cupcake image 4 times, twice on light pink scrap card stock, once in the stripe patterned paper, once in the dark purple that I used for the cupcake "brads". I started by colouring the pink cupcake bottoms brown, then carefully cut out the tops in the purple and the stripes. I taped them to the pink cupcakes. the silver scalloped circle is from the inside of a cookie bag. the sentiment is stamped in black on cream cardstock, and the stamp is from Hero Arts. The cupcake stamp is from Inkadinkado.
Oops!!! I just realized I photographed this BEFORE I added the red Stickles to the cherries.... I will do so and update the photo when I can.
Edit August 12th : I managed to get another photo of the card, this time with the glitter on it, but my camera isn't behaving, and all the photos were a touch blurry.... I am not sure why, so I left the original up... below is the finished card:
