A double dose of CUPCAKES!

Ohhhhh, YUMMMM! These cupcakes are amazing and look good enough to eat! When I received Cupcake Affair, by Verve Stamps, I literally screamed with delight. This is my first cupcake stamp set and what a way to be introduced to them :-)

This first card I made for the Anni-VERVE-sary party bash on August 12th on the SCS Member Forum. In celebration of Verve Stamps 1 year anniversary, Julee released 6 amazing stamp sets and this was one of them. The cuttlebuged Lemon Tart piece uses the newly released Argyle folder. I used stickles on the bottom of the cupcake and the centers of the little flowers. Very sparkly IRL.

Card Deets:
Stamps: Cupcake Affair
Paper: Rose Red, Certain celery, PTI Lemon Tart, very vanilla
Accessories: sponge, slot punch, green bling, striped ribbon, bling, star dust Stickles, paper piercer, white gel pen

This card I just made the other day and boy, I was in a BOLD BRIGHTS mood! I got some of this retired SU! Sassy DP from a gal off Craigslist (yes, you would be amazed what you can find on CL!). I busted it out and went to work on the bright colors and that yummy May Arts ribbon (called Green Apple) is from Flourishes. Remember I won a Featured Stamper prize for July? Well, this ribbon was among the 4 that were sent to me! WOWeeee, it's lucious! The sentiment is from Verve's Happy Thoughts. I used some liquid applique for the icing. I get asked about liquid applique quite a bit. I got mine at Joann's in the adhesive section (don't ask me why). But, you can find it online all over the place and comes in lots of colors. I also have it in brown for chocolate icing!!

Card Deets:
Stamps: Cupcake Affair, Happy Thoughts
Paper: Green Galore, Pumpkin Pie, Pink Passion, Sassy DP
Accessories: liquid applique, satin ribbon, bling, star dust Stickles, paper piercer, white gel pen
Here is a picture of liquid applique. I put it by a penny for a size reference.


Hope you enjoyed the cupcake yumminess! I will be back Thursday to post a card I made for the latest installment of "Meet the Verve Divas, part 7" challenge over on Verve's SCS Member Company forum!
