Cute Cupcake

I have managed to escape for a - very brief - break from decorating to make my brother in laws birthday card.  We were hoping to avoid having to paint some areas of the house (like the stairs) but unfortunately had to cave in and do it.  I dont care if I never see another carved wooden spindle - ever...

Anyway, on with the crafting.  Its always hard to think of something for mens cards, but sometimes, just changing the colour scheme makes it fit.

I stamped the cupcake in Basic Grey ink and coloured the image using my markers.  Then I used Crystal Effects on the 'sprinkles' so they became nice & shiny.  I used a die cutter to trim the image and mounted it on Pumpkin Pie cardstock which had also been cut out using a die cutter.

The large star was ounched out using the SU star punch with smaller stars punched out using some old punches from my stash.

Stamp Set - Crazy for Cupcakes
Cardstock - Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Chocolate Chip and Ruby Red
Ink - Basic Grey, Marvelous Markers
Punches - Large Star, Eyelet border
Accessories - Crystal Effects, Chocolate Chip 1/4 Grosgrain ribbon, brads.
Non SU - Die cuts, medium and small star punches

Thanks for coming over to see me!  Hopefully, we will have finished decorating soon so I can get back in my craft room properly.

  1. Must admit that I like stars too for guys cards, sort of flowers for girlies and stars for the boys. And who doesn't like cupcakes, lol.
