A Cupcake Kind Of Day - for DCM




My 'boss' over on the Bitten By The Bug site is Regina Easter, who is wonderfully talented, as well as being a really sweet genuine friend. She has started her own site called The Cutting Cafe which has printable stamps, and this is where I bought these images. I love printables, you can print straight onto pattern paper and play around with your colours in exactly the same way that you can with regular stamps, the difference being you get a perfect image every time! I cut the hearts out and glittered them, so the card is quite sparkly, the black square was cuttlebugged using the hearts folder, and the hot pink spotty paper is by Making Memories and is a stock item in Michaels. The black stitching looks quite wobbly, but I quite like the look of wobbly stitches, so I carried on. This fits in perfectly with the dare over on Daring Cardmakers this week, which was to have a heart on your card.






Here's another one made with a Regina Cupcake, don't you love the wording, and the way she has curved it so that the cupcake fits snuggly underneath. I decorated this one with pastel brads and a few strips of doodlebug paper frills.


Yes, these were made in the new cupboard, and although it felt strange, as anything new always does, I felt comfortable, and it worked well. YEAH!

Wow! What fabulous cupcake cards! I especially love the second one! I love your new craft space too! You are so well-organized. What a great little spot, especially if someone has a small house and can't designate an entire room to a craft room. Great job!
