Splendid Little Cupcakes

I've been wanting cupcake stamps for soooo long! I was patient, and it was worth the wait....I got the sweetest cupcake stamps (and sentiments) from Pink Poison, aka Splendid Little Stamps, this week!! This is a brand new stamp company and Marie has designed some amazing stamps sets!! You can see 'em right HERE!! These are deep etched rubber stamps, mounted on cling cushion and arrive ready to be trimmed and used with acrylic blocks. And, here's the best part....they stamp bee-a-utifully!! When Marie emailed me to ask if I might like to do a little card designing, I popped over to her site to check out the stamps and after a few audible gasps of delight, emailed her back with a resounding YES please (and a great big thank you!)!!! I'm excited to be part of the team and look forward to sharing these delightfully fresh & fun stamped images with you!
I used the new SU Sweet Always DP for the first card & did some paper piecing on the cupcake. I used the Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge Sketch (#30)! This is a great example of how the right DP can just pull an entire card together! Here's a peek at the inside ~
Here's my cupcake trio card. It's 6 1/2 " tall and 3" wide. I think I may have gotten a little carried away with Dew Drops this week, but they're so fun and fit the cupcake theme perfectly ~
And here is a fun little red & black card, kind of has a nostalgic feel to it, maybe like a 1950's Ice Cream Parlor (is it just me or is anyone else getting hungry?). I apologize, but I didn't keep track of which Copics I used to color these last 2 cards. I will try to be better at noting which colors I've used, I promise : ) ! I'll have more Splendid Little cards to show you over the next few days. Now that you've see a few of the stamps, let me introduce you to the rest of the Splendid Little Design Team ~
And here's the brand new Splendid Stamping Blog~ http://splendidstamping.blogspot.com/
