How sweet it is...

At a recent trip to Archivers I headed straight for the Making Memories display. It's my favorite part about Archivers that I always look forward to. I wasn't disappointed when I found the new Valentine items. I purchased several sheets of patterned paper, including this collage sheet below. It has great images that can be cut up to use on projects. And that's just what I did for my Valentine card below. I paired a cut image from the patterned paper with Karen Lockhart's new Cupcake With Sprinkles stamp. A perfect combo, just like cupcakes and frosting. While at that link above, you can see all of Karen's new releases on her homepage.
I colored my cupcake image using the Copic Sketch markers shown at the end of this post. A little glitter makes the cupcake extra special. If you want to cut out stamped images to use on projects like I did, here's a little tip for you: Leave a white border around your image when you cut. It makes it look like a store bought embellishment, very cool.
Here's my Copic Sketch colors used for coloring the cupcake:
The rest of my card was embellished with more Making Memories patterned paper, pink rhinestones, Papertrey Kraft cardstock and Papertrey Scarlet Jewel Luxe Satin ribbon. Hope you enjoy my card today! Have a great weekend everyone.

It is so cute! Archiver's is one of my fav stores because they have EVERYTHING! (Even if it is 20 minutes away). Your projects are always so inspiring!

How cool I did the same thing, well not exactly but I did decide I could use all that one sheet for lots of cards. Love the cupcake though i need to get one of those. But unfortunately i live in the great state of NC and no one sells lockhart stamps. And I have no archievers anywhere near by. boo hoo

Hey! I have to leave a comment.. because I don't think I ever have, and I've been following your blog for months and months now.
I am one of those... "I wish I could make cards like this lady makes cards, so instead, I'll just blog stalk her, and be in awh"... kind of readers.
And I had to stop by and say that you are SO super talented! You blow me away with so many of your cute ideas.
Keep it up, girl. You inspire me. :)
