~2sketches4you #19 , FTTC#2 (buttons), SWEET CAKES

My daughters are getting ready to have a Valentines' Day party and sleep over tomorrow. So, I've baked several dozen cupcakes today. That may be why I've got cupcakes on the brain!! :D What is it about cupcakes that are so enticingly cute!? To me, Cupcakes cards are among the most fun to create! I had a FABULOUS time with this one!! It was a little time consuming cutting out and piecing all the cupcakes together. The pieces are very tiny and hard to hold onto!

The cupcakes were stamped directly onto the CS and then stamped again on Patterned Paper . I cut the cupcakes out of the Patterned Paper and adhered them to the stamped CS image with tiny pop dots. The tray was stamped and cut out the same way. The buttons are simply stuck together with glue dots. I added twine to the heart button. TSMFL!! Have a GREAT evening!! ~Lori

Here's a couple close-ups.

Stamps: Crazy For Cupcakes (Stampin' UP)
Patterned Paper: Foof-a-la
Cardstock: Stampin' UP, sage shadow, very vanilla, pretty in pink, creamy caramel, bashful blue
Buttons: Foof-a-la
Heart Lace Punch: Fiskars
Ribbon: Sage Shadow (Stampin' UP), Cream Satin (Michaels)
