Cupcake craze

I've gone cupcake crazy recently after the Spring mini catalogue was released as the new Create a Cupcake stampset and co-ordinating punch creates so many different ideas... 

Today though, I have a couple of cards that I made with another cupcake stampset! 

Two of my very good friends whose birthdays we are celebrating properly at the end of the month are hopefully not going to be disappointed with these.  They use the Crazy for Cupcakes stampset which is in the main catalogue - instead of lots of different bits to decorate the cupcakes with (like the Create a Cupcake set), you can just stamp each image and then colour or decorate to your hearts desire!

The colours I've used here are Melon Mambo and Tempting Turquoise from the brights range.

- Base: Whisper White cardstock 13.5 x 27cm; folded to create a square card.
- Background: Tempting Turquoise cardstock 12 x 12cm embossed using Big Shot (embossing folder is non Stampin' Up!).
- Image: Inked with Chocolate Chip and coloured with blender pens using Stampin' Write markers and then decorated with seed beads (non Stampin' Up!); note the candle has been stamped on Melon Mambo cardstock and cut out/stuck on.
- Sentiments: From the Create a Cupcake stampset (mini catalogue), inked with Chocolate Chip and the Teeny Tiny Wishes (main catalogue) also inked with the same colour.
