Cupcakes and Digi Paper...yummm

So, have you seen the new Digital Paper Packs by Stephanie Fizer? They are for sale at My Favorite Things and are SUPER yummy!! I was a little scared of them at first...but my girl Jody hooked us all up with an AWESOME tutorial!!! You can check out her tutorial here!! Anywho...have you been enjoying MFT's What's Up Wednesday's fun?? Every week there is a new tutorial, a challenge, a hook up(sale product) and MUCH MUCH MORE!! Be sure to check it out in the MFT member forum. Due to the awesome success of What's Up Wednesdays, Kim(The MFT Lady) has a little treat and a super special announcement tomorrow that will tell you all about it. Be sure to go NOW and get signed up for the treat and then check back tomorrow for all the details!!

My card was made using 3 of the different papers from the Spring paper pack. I also used Cindy's MFT sketch challenge. I paper pieced the base of the cupcake, used Liquid Applique on the incing, and then colored the glaze and cherry with my Copic Markers and covered it with crystal effects. The sentiment was cut out with my SU key tag punch. I added lots of brads, some Basic Grey buttons, and some YUMMY celery colored satin ribbon. The bottom button looks a little off, but it does match the small stripe in the paper...REALLY need to get some celery colored buttons, LOL!! Well, that is it for me now!! Thanks for looking!!

Today's featured stamper is Judy(jaydekay). She has a fantastic gallery, full of yummy eye candy. Unfortunately, my card creeped away from me in the end...but the general idea is still there....I think, LOL!! I chose this because I wanted to do a card for the Limited Supplies Challenge from Friday, and I thought instead of black and white, I could go red and white. I also added layers, eliminated the sentiment panel and added it to the bottom of the card, added a heart(or two), and used a small strip of DP instead of the whole base. Okay, it RAN away...I swear I will try again, LOL!! My DP is from the Patterns Pack that was a Level One Hostess set for SU. I added some red brads to the sides of it, cause I love brads, LOL!! My main image is from the Whipper Snapper set Bear Hugs. It was designed by Anna Wight and I LOVE her work(like you didn't already know that)!! I colored the image with my BRAND NEW COPICS....WAHOOO!! Yep, I finally took the plunge and I gotta tell you...should NEVER of waited this long. One good thing though, by getting good with the Su markers, it makes Copics EASY...seriously. I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black, and the balloons were done twice. I cut one set out and popped them up. I stamped the sentiment directly on my Kraft layer and then punched a heart in it. I then added a piece of Real Red patterns paper BEHIND the layer(on the base) and then popped the top layer up so there is some depth to it. I added a second heart and then pierced around it, the main image, and the card base. My ribbon came from All That Scraps. So, what do you think??!! Thanks for stopping by, have a great night!!
