Cupcake Birthday

One of my work colleagues had a birthday last Monday and this is the card I have made for her.  I have used one of my favourite colour combos of Regal Rose, Rose Red and Old Olive.  I stamped the cupcake from Party Hearty using my markers in Regal Rose and Creamy Caramel.  The candle is Rose Red and Creamy Caramel.  I stamped the cupcake image twice and cut out the icing and placed it over the first image using dimensionals.  I have layered several layers of cardstock and the pink spotted DSP is from Sweet Always DSDSP.  I added some Old Olive Ribbon and used the Birthday greeting from the new Spring Mini Catty, which I punched out using the mid sized Oval Punch and complimented this with using Old Olive Cardstock to punch a oval Scallop.  I then stamped the cupcake in the same colours onto my whisper white envelope.  I love to have my envelopes to match my cards.  The recipient gets a sneak peek at what is inside.

I hope you have had a Happy Birthday Dianne and that you like your card.


Til next time, keep smiling and stamping.

Every now and again I get the baking bug.  My latest thing was to make cupcakes.  Don’t know why this happened, it just did.  Like an itch, I decided to scratch it LOL.  These are glittery cupcakes.  Cake with bling 🙂  Now to get some cupcake stamps to play with and I will be very happy.  See, I’m a girl of simple tastes.  Here’s a pic of the delicious little cakes.  Want one?
