Carte-licious Challenge


It's time for the Carte-Licious challenge again, and Melissa provided the cute images this time around. The cupcake is from the Hero Arts Sparkle Clear Cupcakes set, and is stamped with StazOn Jet Black onto Whisper White. I colored the image with my Copic Sketch markers (not recommended because it usually bleeds). I needed a birthday card, so I used my Happy Birthday sentiment from A Muse Artstamps (available at the Elzybells NA site). I used my SU Chunky Glitter on the frosting. The card stock/patterend paper and ribbon is from PaperTrey Ink. The oval was created using my Petite Scalloped Oval Nestabilities. The Ticket Corner punch and Dew Drops were used for the corners. Please be sure to check out the creations from the other super-talented girls in the group: Sue, and Melissa. (Joan isn't participating in this round). Thanks for the images, Melissa....and for this adorable little card!!


Thanks so much for your visit, and here's the recipe for my card:

Stamps: Clear Sparkle Cupcakes (Hero Arts), Happy Birthday (A Muse Artstamps)
Card Stock: Sweet Blush, Berry Sorbet, Pink Patterns (all PaperTrey Ink), Whisper White
Ink: StazOn Jet Black, Copic Sketch markers
Accessories: Berry Sorbet Luxe Satin ribbon, Primary Dew Drops, Chunky Glitter, Ticket Corner punch, Petite Scalloped Oval Nestabilities, Crystal Effects, Tombo Mono Multi glue, Stampin' Dimensionals

Simply adorable! I love all the pink! The dew drops in the corners are such a nice touch and I just love the oval scallop under the cupcake! Great card!

I didn't think about using the pink PTI stuff with the cupcake image but now fully intend to make some with it!

So pretty, Rose Ann! Love the glitter on your cupcake and those colors are sweeeet!! I was cringing when you said the image was stamped with Stazon and colored with Copics because I found that out the hard way...that it smears. Your card looks great! Nice job!

Happy Monday!
Wendy

Hey there! Love the cards!!! So sweet and cute!

I've seen some discussions on copics bleeding and I've seen it smear too. From what I understand it's the kind of paper with the ink. Oh who knows?

Smiles,
