MTSC57 - Sweet As Can Be



Good morning! Hope you're having a great day... :) So glad we've made it to Wednesday, we only have 1 more day until our 4 day weekend starts and I'll be able to sleep in a little later. Well, assuming our daughter doesn't get up with the first beam of light that comes through her window... LOL It never ceases to fail, Monday - Saturday she is up E.A.R.L.Y, but come Sunday morning, she magically decides to sleep in and we have to go and drag her out of bed for church. Haha, little stinker.

I created this card using the most recent Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge sketch, which I rotated 90 degrees to the right. I *loved* the sketch this week... I had so many different ideas floating around, but ended up playing with my new PTI goodies. LOL, they were delivered yesterday with the mail, but the hubs didn't even let me know... I found them about 5 or so hours later. LOL! Think of all the wasted time... *wink*

Have a great day!

Instructions:

  • Create A2 card base with kraft CS.
  • Use scallop punch to create border.
  • Stamp flower background onto strip of teal CS, and adhere to white scallop border. Adhere to card base.
  • Stamp cupcake image onto white CS with Memento Black ink, then color with Copics.
  • Stamp sentiment underneath cupcake, then adhere image to orange CS.
  • Apply a thin layer of Crystal Effects to cupcake top and add glitter.
  • Color white pearl with Copics, and attach to cupcake top once glitter has set.
  • Embellish with rhinestones.


Supplies:
Stamps - Baby Button Bits, Background Basics: Petal Power
Ink - Fresh Snow, Summer Sunrise, Copics, Memento Black
Paper - Kraft, Bermuda Bay, Summer Sunrise, Stamper's Select White

    Is the scallop punch a Martha Stewart?
