Today I have two cards for you....the first is...surprise surprise a cupcake card. For those of you who know me, know I have a "thing" for cupcakes, mainly eating them....I know it is so wrong but they taste so good! LOL
Onto the card, the stamp and sentiments are from PI Cherry on the top, the papers from Kay and Co Classic K Bailey and American Craft. I have used Spellbinders round and scalloped round nestabilities and the doily effect was done using two strips of Boarderabilities classic grand lace. Inking was done with Tim Holtz distress ink vintage photo, buttons from stock and white/black journal pens to finish the look. Finally a "cherry on the top" wouldn't be a cherry if it wasn't shinny so Ranger Glossy accents just finished the look!
The lace background was used to make the cake appear to be sat on a plate covered doily....taking my back to my childhood where a tea party wasn't a tea party without mum getting the doilies out.

This is my little lady from Hero arts Four dolls set. I have used the patterned paper from Kay and Co Classic K Bailey and the plain paper from American Craft too. The sentiments are from PI Mix and match, cream satin ribbon from Papercrafts Boutique and the inking was done with black soot from Tim Holtz distress inks. Finally the punch used was Martha Stewart Wrap around the page deco shell....I love these punches, so clever. Oh nearly forgot I used promarkers to colour.
