Cupcake Inspirations

Hey there friends! I had this card all done on Friday...but didn't get around to taking a picture and blogging until this evening. I actually made it for a challenge that Fresh Brewed Designs was sponsoring over at Cupcake Inspirations ..and totally missed the cutoff time!

Here's the inspiration photo:

I used 2 rubber stamps from Fresh Brewed Designs: Love Mug and Sprinkles Sentiment.

I stamped with Memento Espresso Truffle. It's a dark dark brown...and I LOVE IT!  I stamped the image a 2nd time and colored with Spectrum Noir markers -- keeping the coloring simple. Then I cut out the image and adhered with  foam tape. 
I used this card sketch from Sketch Challenge #480. I flipped the sketch upside down for my card design.
I stamped a dotted swirl background on vanilla cardstock with Versamark ink. I went with vanilla cardstock to pull in the "crème" color for the challenge. The cupcake frosting is covered with Le Pouf and then sprinkled glitter. After it dried some I heat it up just lightly with my embossing gun to give it a slight poof.  The 2 wooden hearts are colored with a Spectrum Noir marker. Sequins and rhinestones sprinkled all over make it even better! :) 

Have a weekend full of fun and sprinkles,
