I need a cupcake...now!

Funny I should post this card today....I have a batch of freshly baked cupcakes in the kitchen just waiting to be frosted. I'm trying to refrain from having one though. Josey has her first school dance tonight and I volunteered to make cupcakes and cookies. It's an 80's themed dance so it will be fun to see how the kids interpret what growing up in the 80's was like. I'm an 80's girl so it should be a fun time. We asked Josey if she is going to dance with a boy if asked. Her immediate response was, "No way". Ahh, so typical of grade school dances......go to the dance and don't dare dance with anyone! It probably doesn't help that her mother is a chaperon.

On another note, Jordan is feeling much better today. She's home again just to rest up. She has 6 basketball games this weekend if she's feeling up to it, so I gotta get her feeling better. Mama needs a basketball game fix!!
Onto my card. I'm using some brand new products that Just Rite Stampers will be releasing soon. This particular set is called Wood Stamper 2-3/8" (with bonus center cupcake and 25 pt font set). So you get the wood stamper, the font set and the cute cupcake center.
I started by stamping the large base circle with my sentiment that I made up. I cut that out with a large Spellbinders Circle Nestabilities Template. I left the circle in the metal template and then airbrushed it with a pink Copic marker. Then I stamped the cupcake and colored the wrapper portion with Copic markers. I then stamped the cupcake image again onto some My Mind's Eye Penny Lane patterned paper. I cut out the frosting portion of the cupcake and paper pieced it onto the colored cupcake. I then cut the cupcake out with a smaller Spellbinder's Circle Nestabilities Template and adhered it to the larger circle with pop dots.
I used various sized circle punches to punch out designs from some coordinating MME Penny Lane paper. Pink sequins are scattered through out the card.

Michelle!! I just bought that paper! - what a great idea to cut the circles out...you're so multifunctional that way. The cupcake card overall is sooo cute and man, sometimes we just really need a cupcake - but a cupcake card would be better for us, I'm sure ;) Tell us all about the 80s dance - was in school in the 80s too...interesting to know what kids today think they know about that!

Yum! This is my first time seeing what airbrushed copics look like... GREAT job (not that I'm surprised!).

Glad to hear your dd is feeling a bit better.
