Little Cupcake Blog Hop

Once again, I am joining a blog hop! I love to do these because it gives everyone a chance to see how many things can be done with one stamp set! Take a look at several cards I have made with this set! Don't forget to click on the links at the end of the post to see some more great examples!


This first card I love just because of the black and white! When I think "Cupcakes" I usually think colorful and birthdayish! This gives it a more elegant look, I think!




The cupcake on this card I colored with watercolors! Then I cut out the image, ink the edges with brown ink and attached it with pop dots! (Kind of a CASE from Heather...HERE!)




I used the masking technique on this card! The swirls are actually a piece of a lollypop but I just wanted the "swirl" for the background! I traced the inside of each with a sparkle gel pen!



This last card I made for a cupcake contest at the Winter Round Up! It was so much fun and there were SO many great samples made with this set!




This set is really a fun one to color! I am loving all the fun ways to color stamps! My favorite right now is Gamsol, a blending stump and regular colored pencils!


I also use Watercolor pencils and a dove blender! It is amazing how many different looks you can get just by using different mediums!




It may be hard to see in the picture, but each of the cupcakes are colored with a different medium. The first cupcake on the left is stamped on watercolor paper and colored with watercolor pencils and a water brush. The middle is stamped on TAC Premium Cardstock and colored with Watercolor Pencils and a Dove Blender. The cupcake on the right is stamped on watercolor paper and colored with crayons and a water brush.

Such a great set to play with!



This last sample is by the sweet JoAnn Cisneros! She said I could post her swap as another piece of inspiration!
I love this card! The Playful Parenthesis set from the magalogue is growing on me! :) How cute is this?

Now check out all the other Angels and their creations!
Thanks for looking!
