I Love Cupcakes

Ok, I have to admit, the cupcake craze is right up my alley. I LOVE CUPCAKES. I love eating them, making them, all things cupcake! There, I said it, and now I feel better! I found an adorable set of stamps from Hero Arts the other day that's all cupcakes and sweets, which I ran, not walked, to the cash register to purchase! So far I've made a few things with them, but by far, this is my favorite.

I used a cream Bazzill bling textured cardstock for the base, cut and folded into an A2 size card, which I then edged in purple ink. I used Rose Red cardstock from Stampin' Up as the mat and some striped paper from My Mind's Eye. I hand stamped the cupcakes on ivory cardstock, and also matted that on Rose Red cardstock. I hand colored each cupcake a different "flavor" to match the striped paper, and put a big heart rhinestone cherry on top of the pink frosted cupcake. I attached the cupcakes to the card using pop dots for some depth. I punched a scalloped circle out of textured AC cardstock in a light green and attached it behind the cupcakes. I stamped "Happy Birthday" (also from the same Hero Arts set) in brown and affixed three clear rhinestones.

This would be a great card for that sassy little (or big) someone's birthday!

Those look tasty! I can't believe all of the work you put into that design - truly amazing. Your cards are always a work of art.
One question... Can I put in a custom order for that card with scratch and sniff added? LOL!
