Birthday Cupcakes

I've got a giveaway going here if you're interested in new Spellbinders dies!

Happy Monday everyone! Did you have a good weekend? I did. My muse was in town big time yesterday and I got so many cards made! I've actually got two to share with you today.

The first one was made for the Queen For the Day challenge at Splitcoast Stampers. I chose THIS CARD to CASE.

I used the new Cupcake Kit by Jane Beljo. This set is so cute and has three different cupcakes and a candle too!

I colored with Copic markers and used a little bit of stickles on the icing and a lot of stickles around the sentiment which was computer generated. The embossed part at the top of the card was done with one of the new Mbossabilities embossing folders I won from Spellbinders.
These folders are cool!

My second card was for the Featured Stamper challenge.  I picked THIS CARD to CASE and used the same cupcake set image. I printed this image out three times and cut it apart in layers so i could pop them up.   The icing is popped up and then the flower is popped up on that.  The photo looks like the icing is white, but it's colored a very pale yellow.

The sentiment at the bottom is one by Jess Holland that can be purchased at Squigglefly HERE I changed the color of the sentiment before printing so it would match my card better. You can see how to do that by watching this video.

Today begins a brand new challenge on Squigglefly's blog, so if you get a chance go see what the design team has done!
