SC247 - Two Tiers of Cupcakes

Happy Thursday everyone! The card I have for today is for the Splitcoast Stampers Sketch Challenge from yesterday and uses the stamp set On a Pedestal. Instead of stamping the pedestal just one time I decided to add an extra tier for another cupcake and stamped each of the pedestals in Close to Cocoa directly on top of one another. For both of the cupcakes I ended up stamping just the bottoms in Real Red ink because I think the Real Red ink pad is brighter than the SU Real Red marker. Then I used my aqua brush to remove any Real Red ink from the area I wanted Chocolate Chip and then used my Chocolate Chip marker and colored the top of the cupcake directly on the rubber, huffed and stamped. Each cupcake was then cut out as well as the cherries and taped in place.

Supplies: On a Pedestal, Polka Dot BG, Square punches, Ribbon, Small circle punch, Brads, SU markers, Pop dots. Colors: Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Real Red.

I keep seeing all your ideas and don't ever feel like I can recreate them the same. Maybe it's my inexperience with stamping ... duh.
But, I love this a lot!
