A Sketchy Cupcake

Happy Friday!  Woohoo, it's practically the weekend and after a loooooong couple of weeks, I'm looking forward to some quality relaxation!  I just started a new book that's got me hooked, so I foresee some Kindle time in my future!  Hooray!  I multi-task and listen to audio books quite a bit when I'm packing orders and stamping, but there's something magical about actually sitting down to simply read and get engrossed in a good story!  One of life's simple pleasures!

Anyhow, I guess I should get on with the card for the day.  I used this week's SCS sketch {SC295} and pulled out the new Fabulous You and Carpe Cupcake sets to make this sweet card.



The frame from Fabulous You is embossed in Chocolate Chip craft ink on prism paper, then I trimmed it out and mounted on a Chocolate Chip Scallop rectangle.  I honestly think this is the first time chocolate chip has seen the light of day since Early Espresso came to live at my house.  I never thought I'd like a brown better than chocolate chip, but the times they are a changin'!  LOL  Next I embossed the sentiment from Carpe Cupcake in the center of the frame, then started in on the cupcake.

I stamped the cupcake a few times and pieced together with chocolate, aqua and kraft pieces.  The sprinkles are embossed on the frosting, then accented with Cinnamon Stickles and I sketched in a little loopy border on one of the stripes with a chocolate chip marker.  Here's a little close-up of just the cupcake so you can check out that loopy detail - super simple, but I think it adds the perfect touch of whimsy. C'mon and get a little closer, don't be shy! :)


The main kraft layer of the card is embossed with a QuicKutz embossing folder and I added a little ruffle striped ribbon and some liquid pearls to finish things off!  Okay, that's all for this week!  Thanks so much for stopping by my little corner of blogland!  I hope you have a weekend filled with your favorite things!  And be sure to head on over to the Verve Blog today to see the next installment of our Something Old, Something New Project Parade!

  6. Love that wide, striped ribbon and how you ruffled the portion of it (another reason to get a sewing machine LOL!). Haven't seen a real life piece of Early Expresso so you now have me intrigued as I just LOVE Chocolate Chip. Gorgeous card as always.
