Hey there cupcake!! Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #51

I love sketch challenges, if you have not already noticed!! I have a list of blogs that I go through when I sit down to start a card. Once I have found the sketch that catches my eye, I get busy creating, or at least try to create! LOL I found this cute sketch over at Taylored Expressions and thought I would give it a shot. Here is the Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #51.....

Here is my take on the challenge......For my card, I used the Key to my Heart paper pack (still available till the end of the month) and a new CTMH stamp set called Cupcake Sprinkles.

I stamped the cupcake top in Sorbet and put Liquid Applique over all and added Prisma Glitter to the top. After I took the heat gun to puff the Liquid Applique, I gently sponged Sorbet on to the top to give it a little color. For the cupcake bottom, I stamped the image with VersaMark and embossed it with Clear Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out, took my Juniper marker to the lines and folded the edges in for dimension. Both pieces are pop dotted. The "stitching" around the card is a stamp from the Cupcake Sprinkles set.

Just in case you did not know this already, if you like any of the CTMH products that are used in my projects, all you need to do is click on the Close to my Heart link and order from my website. Your order will be shipped directly to you! It does not get much easier than that!! If you have any questions about the Close to my Heart products, or would like to join my team, please feel free to contact me anytime!

Most supplies are CTMH:

Embellishments: Spring Blossom Mini-Medley, Sorbet Ribbon

Hope I have inspired in some way today!

Great job on your card. I have that stamp set and wasn't sure how to stamp the wrapper. I love how you used the embossing poweder and folded the sides.

I like the stitching with the pen. I need to remember I don't always have to go to my machine to get that look. Very cute card.
