Today is the January PTI Blog Hop. Our challenge this month was to use a stamp set that has never been used. Since I have used some of every set of stamps I have, I used
a little creative license and made a type of card that was new to me. This is my first "Shaped" card and I used a free svg file from
I think the cupcake file is just adorable and I used lots of PTI supplies to make my card. My favorite element is the Sunshine impression plate I used for the frosting part of the cupcake. Those swirls are just perfect to imitate icing. Niki Estes made a cute cupcake card recently that inspired one of the elements on this card. Here is a link to her card: http://nikiestes.typepad.com/my_paper_creations/2011/01/birthday-cards-tags.html. I love the circle/pinked circle with the big Number One on it. This card is for a sweet little girl who turns one next week and I used Background Basics Tin Type on both the rickrac and the number (don't know why I don't use this more often). The raspberry fizz circle has Background Basics Sheet Music stamped on it with Versamark. I scored the back of the cupcake liner with my ScorBug which gives a really nice texture on the "right" side of the patterned paper. I added a bit of prisma glitter to the edges of the cupcake liner. I can hardly wait to give this card to sweet little Leah. Thanks for taking a look at my project.
