Mambo Melon Cupcakes!

I had the most wonderful morning just coloring,
relaxing and putting a few cards together!
I haven't done that in so long....what a treat! And to make it even sweeter, I had a few brand new goodies from the upcoming SU catalog to play with: Mambo Melon cardstock, and Mambo Melon 1/2" polka dot gg ribbon, Razzleberry Lemonaide DP. This Mambo Melon color is going to be a favorite of mine. I did a little color matching with my copics and ended up using RV17 along with R83 for the frosting. RV17 is a pretty close match for Mambo Melon, but I've also seen RV29 used and that looked good too. I used R29 & R22 for the cherries and and N3, N1, C1, E31, E34 & E13 for cupcake bases and tray.I topped the cherries and tray off with a little crystal effects to give 'em shine and dimension...I love that stuff!
I'm pre-making as many cards as I can during my break because once my classes start again, my stamping time will be very limited and I want to have plenty of cards on hand to give when I need them. I learned that lesson the hard way when I was trying to make graduation cards during finals week....not a good idea. Much, much more enjoyable to make them now when I have time to relax and create!

I'm off to Corvallis to visit my girls and my grandbaby :) ... yay!! Thanks for stopping by, I have a few other cards uploaded and will be sharing those over the next few days. Enjoy your day!!!
Supplies for the card (size 4 1/4" square) ~ Stamps: Crazy for Cupcakes (SU) Paper: Razzleberry Lemonaide DP, Mambo Melon, PT white Ink: Ranger Distressed Black Soot Accessories: Copic Markers, Crystal Effects, Horizontal slot punch, 1/2" Mambo Melon polka dot gg ribbon, round Nestabilities, Big Shot
