TECC30 Featured Cupcake Sampler

Whoo Hoo, its time for Taylor's Friday Cupcake Challenge and I'm the lucky girl that gets to be the Cupcake sampler for today! If you've never participated in Taylor's Cupcake Sketch Challenge, head on over to her blog and give it a try!
For my card I used the new Stampin' Up stamp set called Crazy for Cupcakes. I stamped the cupcakes and then colored them using my Copic markers, then cut and embossed them using my Nestabilitaties square die. Then I added Liquid Applique, but before heating it I sprinkled the wet Liquid Applique with Dazzling Diamonds to make them sparkle. I also added Crystal Effects to the cherries on top of every cupcake to make them look shiny. I used an SU black marker directly on the cupcake stamp so that I could stamp only a single cupcake for the center of the scalloped circle and stamped the Happy Birthday to you twice to form a circle, then punched it out using a circle punch. The main image is pop dotted, along with the scalloped circle to give dimension. This was a fun card to make!

Supplies: Crazy for Cupcakes, Summer Picnic designer paper, Ribbon, Nestabilities, Copic markers, Scalloped circle punch, Circle punch, Crystal Effects, Liquid Applique, Dazzling Diamonds, Pop dots. Colors: Real Red and Whisper White.
