Hey Cupcake...

Hey there! I hope you're having a great holiday weekend so far. Yesterday my husband and I did a little relaxing in the morning and then got up and went to the mall for some sales. Of course I had to run into Bath & Body Works, I mean everything was on sale!!! :D So I stocked up on some shower gel, lotion, & body spray in Japanese Cherry Blossom, my new favorite scent!!! :D I also love Irresistible Apple but stocked up on that when I was there last. I always used to use Country Apple but I love this new apple scent...yummy! :D Then we went over to my brothers house, ate burgers and hotdogs, played some games and watched some fireworks!!! All in all it was a great day because I got to spend it with my family!!! :D


Ok, so your probably saying "Let's get to the card"!!! I just love this cupcake stamp by MFT. I used Cupcake dp from Basic Grey and drew my colors from there. I used Dutch Blue, Olive, Buttercup and Blush. I didn't think this color combo would work, but I {love} it!!!! :D I colored my cupcakes using my Copics and CTMH markers and I stamped some Cranberry sprinkles on top. Don't they look good enough to eat?!?! I also used my Copic Spica Glitter pen to add some sparkle to my cupcake liners and added a red sparkle on top of the cupcakes...just yummy!!! :D I layered my image onto a piece of Blush CS that I ran through my Cuttlebug using my rectangle Nestabilities and added a silver brad to each corner. I then pop dotted it onto my base and layered my sentiment on top, which I just love!!! :D I added some pink satin ribbon to the top and called it done. Thanks for stopping by today, I really appreciate that you take the time to comment on my work, it really means a lot to me! :D Take care! :D

So cute! Makes me hungry!

Do you know, I've been toying with the idea of 'acquiring' these basic grey papers. I think you might just have convinced me!

I used the exact same CTMH colors when I used this paper, except I added a bit of Goldrush, too - glad to know I was accurate ;-)
