December Stamp of the Month: Cutie Pie

Hey there, cupcake!  It's time for the December stamp of the month blog hop!  (If you arrived from Stefani's blog then you're hopping right along.  You'll visit Alyson next.)  As much as I absolutely love Christmas, it's fun to work on something a little different this time of year too.
To create this fun card, I started with the Confetti Wishes paper pack and a Make It From Your Heart sketch.  I stamped my focal images with Slate ink using the masking technique so that the cupcake is sitting on the cake stand.  I then colored the images with my blending pen and Pear, Crystal Blue, Canary, and Slate inks.  (Since I had recently had a green frosted cupcake, I thought that would be fun, but I am not totally in love with the colored green frosting. I'm sure Kermit or the Grinch would love it though!)  I stamped the background cupcakes in Lagoon, Pacifica, and Thistle.

I used two fun techniques on my focal image: I colored a white enamel star with the Peony Shin Han Touch Twin marker.  Then, so "sit" the cake stand on the "table" I used my craft knife to cut the base of the pedestal and then slid the checkerboard B&T paper up behind it.  I think that turned out really cool, if I do say so myself!

Then, I made two more cards with more of a holiday theme for my upcoming card workshop on 12/14.  These are two of my "six-from-one/one sheet wonder" class using the Snowhaven paper pack.

Both cards use red shimmer trim and silver sequins or a sparkle that I colored red with our alcohol markers.
I had to break up "the sweetest" to make it fit.  I just inked up sweetest, stamped, cleaned, inked up the, stamped, and cleaned again.

Thanks for stopping by for a non-fat, sugar-free cupcake!  Now go check out Alyson's sweet treat!
