The DT was given images from Crafty Scrappers to use for our creations:


Isn’t she the cutest with her oversized cupcake and glasses?!  I’ve used images including the sentiment from the Ms. Cupcake stamp set provided by our sponsor.

I had so much fun coloring her up with Copic markers and then adding lots of details to it like the gold glitter shimmer over the ribbon on the cupcake, the shimmer over the frosting and then some glossy accents for the chocolate syrup, cherry on top and over her glasses too!  I’ve also used a white gel pen for highlights on areas.  I actually fussy cut her out and popped her up over the circle die cut panel with foam tape.

I thought she fit the circle nicely and would work for a circle easel card design.  I matted her over a purple fancy circle die cut layer and then made the circle easel base a pink color.  I cut a strip for the sentiment and layered that over purple cardstock for the inside which is helping to keep the front layer propped up.  I’ve also added some gold sparkle crystals over the design to match her ribboned cupcake.

(I would normally add more photos to show you a closer look at the details, but I just had SO many creations and posts at once…please let me know if you have any questions!)

Thanks for dropping in today friends and I’ll see you tomorrow!
