One Dollar Cupcakes

Sunday, April 12, 2009

Good Morning! :)

Did you have a great weekend and Easter? We had a great day yesterday. Syd hunted for eggs in my MIL's basement since it was far too cold outside this year. She rounded up a huge shopping bag full of candy and small toys! (Time to purge her toy collection again!)

My card for you today was created using Taylor's Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge (TECC63) issued last Friday. I don't own many cupcake stamps, but a few weeks ago I bought these Studio G ones from Michaels. Yes, $1 Studio G stamps! Typically I will only buy them for their sentiments, but when I spotted these cute cupcakes I couldn't resist!

I stamped the cupcakes out on Georgia Pacific cardstock and colored them up with SU inks. Then I punched them out with a circle punch and matted them onto larger circles cut from Bazzil cardstock. I mounted them as a set of four images on the top layer. I then folded two different colored flowers from Heidi Swapp and added a fun brad to the center of it for a fun header to the card.

Remember how I mentioned a while back how more often than not the names of the patterned papers matched the theme of the card? Well this patterned paper by Imaginisce hit the nail on the head. It's from their 'All Kinds of Happy' collection and the name of it is...'Pink Frosting With Sprinkles'!! Crazy isn't it?! hahaha

Before I go, I just wanted to mention that I will soon be playing with some new stamps!! Last week Rubbernecker held their first ever blog stroll to showcase their new release of stamps and I won the Coffee and Tea Inchie set!! Thank you Red Hot Momma's and Rubbernecker! :)

Hi Sandra,
Just come across your blog and have gone through it from start to finish and saved to favourites. I am heading to the States with friends in October and can't wait, we do LA, Las Vegas, Waco, Austin, San Diego and San Francisco. My girlfriend who is coming with me is not into craft but is into photography, she can't understand my big wish of coming across some great craft stores while there that can feen my card making addiction..LOL
I'm hoping one of these places has a Michaels as you all seem to come across some great deals there. We have no idea yet what we are going to look at see or do as we only decided to go next week. It will be for 3 weeks. Any ideas and any directions would be greatlyyyy appreciated. Love your blog,
