It's a Cupcake Kind of Day

Hi Everyone!

To view today's card please visit Shirley's blog at and read her post for "It's a Cupcake Kind of Day". I had so much fun creating cards for that challenge.

The cupcake was created with an Impression Obsession "Sweet Toppings" rubber stamp and the text was created with an Impression Obsession
"You're Sweet" rubber stamp. The papers are from the American Crafts Abode collection.

I used White Enamel Accents from Ranger for the vanilla frosting and vanilla cake. I used a marker to color the chocolate frosting and chocolate cake and then added Glossy Accents from Ranger to them. Also put Glossy Accents on the cherries. There's a bit of green jewelry wire on the cherries for their stems. Sprinkled Doodlebug confetti on the frosting while it was still wet. Ran the muffin wrappers through a crimper to make them look realistic. That doesn't show so well in the photograph. The shiny frosting makes the cupcakes look good enough to eat! The cupcakes are added to the layering paper with dimensional tape.

Be sure to visit the Impression Obsession's Design Team's blogs to see their amazing cards for It's a Cupcake Kind of Day!

Have a great night!
