Crazy for Cupcakes

 

When the new catty came out in April the one of the first sets I wanted was Crazy for Cupcakes and the matching wheel. I had seen so many cute cards made with this set that I just HAD to have it! So today I thought I’d share a couple of cards that I made with it. These cards are for my friend Helene…when I first took up stamping as a hobby she thought it was funny. She’s not the patient type and she’s far too practical to spend all the time and effort making pretty cards when there’s much more *useful* things she could be doing :) Anyway, last year I sent her a set of cards in a cute box for her birthday. She has two primary school aged kids and there’s always a birthday party to go to…but now she’s run out and has requested some more :) I haven’t converted her to stamping, but she does appreciate having cute, unique birthday cards to give to others…LOL!

OK, enough blathering….onto the cards:

This one uses Sweet Always paper and some pretty bright colours….even Pumpkin Pie (I know!). Obviously this one is for a girl :)

S6301990

Actually, so is this one. The sentiment came from some DP that I got in my blog candy win from Kirsty. I just cut out the sentiment I wanted and layered it onto some Pixie Pink CS. The ribbon on both of these cards is Regal Rose wide grosgrain. The images were stamped on watercolour paper and coloured with markers.

I hope you all have a fabulous Friday and a great weekend. I will be back on Sunday with my Magnolia Challenge card :)

I love Pumpkin Pie...and I see you are slowly converting to possibly liking it too? At any rate, your cute cards have me drooling on my keyboard and eager to make cupcake cards :)

Love the bright bold colors...you really know how to use those...which so impresses me because they intimidate me so much! {SMILES}
