I'm This Week's Cupcake Sampler!!

Words cannot even express how EXCITED and HONORED I was to be asked by Taylor to be her Cupcake Sketch Sampler for this week!! I must have redone this card a hundred times, LOL!! But as nervous as it made me, I would do it again in a heartbeat!! Thanks for asking me Taylor, it is truly an honor!! For my card today, I used one of my FAVORITE Paper Pretties stamps, Sweets for the Sweet(currently out of stock, sorry, I really hate it when I do that. Be sure to check out the Pretties store too, Christie is now carrying Shimmerz, Blingz, and is having a GREAT sale on Copics!!) I stamped it on Gina K. White with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored it in with my Copics. The bar the utensils are hanging on was colored with my Silver gel pen. I then cut it out and layered it with Pumpkin Pie and Cool Caribbean. The DP I used is from My Mind's Eye, it is so yummy!! I cut the circles out with my Cuttlebug and Circle Nesties. The ribbon is from SU( white taffeta and Pumpkin Pie grosgrain). I added some large white American Crafts brads too, along with some piercing. The sentiment was cut out with my Ribbon Slide tag dies and my Cuttlebug. Super cut huh!! Thanks again Taylor for choosing me, I can't wait to see what her team has come up with for this sketch too!! Thanks and have a great day! My Mom is getting married today, so Congrats Mom, I love you!!

  16. Great Job Jesse!
    I love the color combo you chose. very cute. and I really like the saying, is that included in the stamp set from paper pretties? That would be so good to have for tags for the holidays.

    Congrats to your Mom and Fiancee Have a wonderful weekend!
