Cupcakes Anyone?




This month is my birthday month! So what better way to start the stamping this month than with birthday cupcakes?? The first tent topper card uses all A Muse sentiments and images for the stamps. I love how it all ties in perfectly with this new Junkitz cupcake paper. I used my Cricut to cut out the cupcake diecut and attached some Doodlebug flower sequins for bling.

The second set of cards are made with all new Doodlebug papers and clear stamps. Aren't they cute images? Doodlebug is brilliant at coordinating all their stamps, papers, and embellishments. I used bright and cheery cardstock and markers to match the papers. The black birthday sentiment on the orange is outlined in a matching orange marker for a little extra punch.

Tip of the day (I know, a second tip today!!): Pay attention to the little details, especially if you sell your cards. Your customers look for this and the recipients of your cards LOVE it! For example on the Doodlebug cards, I used dimensionals for added depth, pink glitter on the cupcake and orange Stickles for the candle top. A cute ribbon always adds a nice finishing touch. None of these items are very expensive either so you add several little accents and still come out ahead. I think you need another trip to Eclectic Paperie (see link at right), they have some awesomely fun stuff!!! Can you tell I like their store?

Hello Michelle :) I read your blog on a daily bases, I LOVE it :) I wanted to ask you a couple questions about the cricut, I am having soooooo many problems getting it to cut the paper completely thru. I was trying to use the stampin Up paper, is that to thick for it? If you can email me tanya02@verizon.net, I would be so thankful. Thanks a bunch, Tanya
