Celebrate with Cakes--Cupcakes!

This is a sweet card! I love coloring this stack of delicious cupcakes for a birthday card. I made the panel on the left by layering Blush Blossom cardstock onto Pretty In Pink cardstock. The sentiment is from Birthday Bliss and I stamped it this-way-and-that using Regal Rose ink. The cupcake stand is stamped onto the Whisper White card with Basic Black ink. I colored it using my Blender pen and Rose Red, Regal Rose and Blush Blossom ink puddles. What are ink puddles? When the pad is closed, squish the top onto the pad. When you open it, there is a little puddle that is perfect to dip your blender pen into and water color. Try it! If you use a Stampin' Write marker, the color is much darker, so this gives you more control over how dark you want the colors to be.

Cardstock: Whisper White, Pretty in Pink, Blush Blossom
Stamps: Birthday Bliss, Birthday Whimsy
Ink: Basic Black, Regal Rose
Accessories: Blender Pen

If you are in need of any of these supplies, or have a list of your own, please don't hesitate to shop with me, 24/7.

Well, indeed, this is a sweet card! You have reminded me to use more pink! I have oodles of pink and never use it!

I love your layout, too!
