{ happy cupcake day }

Here's a cute card I made yesterday. I started it the other day by stamping the cupcake image on glossy, then coloring it with markers and covering it with stickles. I also poked teeny tiny holes with my teeny tiny hole poker around the edge and then put a dot of pink on the hole.

Did you notice how I altered this stamp? When we were at Classic in Chilliwack the other day my oldest daughter immediately spotted a cupcake stamp (she knew I'd been wanting one). When I saw it I wasn't that thrilled with the star on it, but she suggested that I should just cut off the star. What a brilliant kid! So anyway, when I got the stamp home I heated it up for 15 seconds in the microwave and very carefully removed the star.

Have a good day everyone! It's a beautiful sunny day here.


  1. Well aren't you a clever chickadee!!! Cute card too. Hmmm...I need to get some stickles.

  2. love that cupcake stamp! lucky you saw it before i did lol!

  3. Wow & double wow!
    My 2 favorites --- cuttlebug & scalloped giga punch.
    By the way, where did you get your giga scallop punch? Everywhere I've looked it's been sold out.

  4. Great idea! Isn't it fun to see the potential in your stamps!

  5. Great card... and your daughter is a smarty pants!!

  6. Hi, I saw this same stamp on E-bay and thought it was adorable. I for one loved the star and thought it was something "different" then the usual cupcake stamp with a cherry on top. JMO - I do like your card thought and the bright cheery colors you used. Ida
