Stamp Simply #142- Sweet Stuff!

June 4, 2010 - ssnotime142 - Sweet Stuff! 

The first challenge of the month we take turns hosting the theme and today's challenge is from me! The challenge is keepin' it simple and create a card or a project featuring something SWEET.... a cake, cupcake or candy! It can be a stamp image, paper or an embellishment -- whatever you have in your stash that fits the theme. Can't wait to see all your SWEET creations! 
Play along and link your project on Sharon's blog, No Time to Stamp using Mr. Linky. 
See what goodies the team cooked up this week.... SharonBarb SchramJanine OrchardA J OttoDeb SaarenenDeb NeermanBarb Anders and we have Julia Aston with us this month as June's Guest Designer.

A simple layout for this sweet little cupcake. Very simple, just a few layered strips on the card base and a center panel popped up with foam tape. I used one of the new cupcakes from Impression Obsession. It's not in the online store yet, but most stores already have the new cupcakes in stock. I colored the cupcake using Copic Markers and then cut it out. 
I gave a little bendy shape to the cupcake and the sentiment, just curling it around my fingers and used silicone to attach both. My jute string wasn't quite a perfect match to the color of my paper so I just touched it up randomly with an R32 Copic to deepen the color. After going over the string with the Copic all the teensy strings started coming undone and you can see my bow got a little hairy looking!!! LOL! I wanted to keep the color scheme really simple and on the cupcake I used only two Copics R37 and R32 on the icing - I added a little dab of Rock Candy Distress Stickles over the polka dots. I used E00 for a little shading on the bottom of the cupcake. Finished card is an A2 tent card.
