Birthday Wishes

Hey there friends! I have been crafting up a storm all weekend! I should have blog stuff all week long. I even took pictures! Also I had a post over at Waltzingmouse makers over the weekend. Go check it out!Onto today's project- One of my most favorite stamps is this cupcake. Its out of the Baby Button Bits set from PTI. I hardly ever make baby cards but I use this cupcake all the time! Its great for coloring and awesome for paper piecing. Here I stamped it three times. Once on green cardstock (sorry no clue of color or brand), once on PTI bitty dots summer sunrise, once on Doodlebug patterned paper. Then I got out the scissors and started layering. I topped it off with a lemon tart button (PTI). I also covered the Doodlebug paper in a layer of stickles.Next I went to work on the card. I started with a kraft base. I stamped the sentiment (from the Round and Round PTI anniversary set) three times in chocolate. Then I added two layers of Doodlebug fancy frills. Finally on went the cupcake with some dimensionals. I am pretty pleased, what do you think?

Yum - that cupcake looks good enough to eat! I love your paper choices, and the simplicity of the card, especially with those fun frill/borders. The white one looks like icing - so fun!!!

LOL, Michele, I could write the same thing--I use this cupcake for birthday cards much more than the other stamps from this set for baby cards! Your card is adorable, and I'm glad to see you stickled the icing on the cupcake--I *always* do that too! :-D
