Crazy!

For Cupcakes!
This is the set I won at the Stampin'Up! convention. I love this set and would have bought it, so I was very happy I won it! It came with the coordinating wheel and a roll of the new 1" chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon. I didn't use the wheel or the ribbon on these cards, but I will soon. I made these cards for a fellow friend/demonstrator who doesn't have the set. She's promoting the Birthday specials this month and needed some samples. I was very happy to help her out. That's one of the best things about SU demonstrators.....everyone jumps in and helps each other out.
First card is Bella Rose papers and Riding Hood Red satin ribbon. I paper pieced the cupcake.

I watercolored the main image with my blender pens, and then applied dazzling diamonds to the cupcake frosting and crystal effects to the cherries to make them shiny. I used a small piece of Parisian Summer paper to mat the main image. I also used the small cupcake image from the Short and Sweet set in the scallop circle.

The balloons are also in the Crazy for Cupcakes set. I paper pieced them with Maine Blueberry papers and popped a couple of them up on dimensionals.


I did also stamp the insides of the cards, but didn't take pictures of that.
Thanks for looking!
