Clear Dollar Stamps Yummy Cupcakes


What a fun card to make, I'm so pleased with the way it turned out!  When I saw this digital image I thought it was so pretty and knew I wanted to use it on a card.  It's from the Clear Dollar Stamps Yummy Cupcakes digital stamp set and I used the colored version.  

I'd printed it out and let it "rest" for a few days thinking about how I'd like to use it.  I wasn't sure I had the cardstock to go with it, it's not "real red" it's more burgundy.  As I looked through my (one of my) paper drawers I saw that it matched The Paper Mill's cranberry cardstock as well as their Nut Brown very nicely.  I also used Mohawk Bright White and one of the digital papers that comes in the set.  This was my first attempt at sewing on a card, lol, the worst part is covered up!  I also used Spellbinders dies and a Sizzix embossing folder.  The sentiment also comes in the set, I'll show it to you below.


What an awesome value at $3.00!

I really like this, I like the added shadow at the bottom, as we know real cupcakes have that so this makes it look so real to me I want a cupcake now!
