SC245/Stamping 411 - Birthday Cupcakes

The first card I have for today is for yesterday's Splitcoast Stampers Sketch Challenge #245, I used the stamp set Crazy for Cupcakes and the bright color combo of Mellon Mambo, Summer Sun and Tempting Turquoise which I stuck with for both of today's cards. I used Liquid Applique on the cupcakes to make them look frosted and my aqua brush to apply color.

Supplies: Crazy for Cupcakes, Mellon Mambo DSP, Embossing, Ribbon, Brads, Liquid Applique, Aqua brush, Pop dots.

This second card is for the Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge and I used the cupcakes from the hostess set The More the Merrier and Happy Everything. Not that my coloring looks fabulous but the one thing I find when your applying ink using your aqua brush is to also use your SU markers and go back in and add shading. I find that if I just use the ink from the lid of my SU ink pad or reinker and an aqua brush the color seems to fade but by going in and adding that same color with a marker it gives the image depth.

Supplies: The More the Merrier, Happy Everything, Mellon Mambo DSP, Ribbon, Brads, Word Window punch, Aqua brush, SU markers.

So cute, Lynn! I love Crazy for Cupcakes... it's such a fun set. I actually need to get motivated to create a birthday card for a 2 year old. But with my time limited in my craft room this summer, I think I misplaced my mojo! I need to get over this creative block and just stamp something!

How is your son doing in high school? Or even more importantly, how is your son's mom doing?
