Happy Cupcake

Good morning!
It's snowing again...as much as I do love winter and playing in the snow, I hate driving in it! And I had to today since school wasn't cancelled. We got lots of snow on Sunday. The kids and I were out in it because it was perfect for playing with (until the afternoon). We built a couple minecraft inspired snowmen :) and a couple snow animals. I think I had a bit too much fun, as my neck and back are still hurting from it. 

I recently needed a birthday card for a little boy who just turned 7, and I thought this cute cupcake stamp from Whimsy stamps was perfect for the occasion. 

I started out by stamping the cupcake onto xpress it blending card, colored it with copics and then fussy cut.
For the background I used 110lb recollections card stock. I used 2 clear stamps sets from Whimsy stamps - basic borders and distressed backgrounds to add a little interest to the card. The sentiment is from an older set also by Whimsy - Birthday Greetings. There is another part of the sentiment, but I masked it off, and then stamped that part on the inside. (Sorry, I didn't take a photo of the inside.)
For the lines on the bottom portion of the card, I used one of Whimsy's photopolymer sets - basic borders and backgrounds. I used another photopolymer set for chickenwire -distressed backgrounds and ink splats. Whimsy's little star die was used for the stars on the card. I finished it off by rounding the corners on the bottom and added some glitter to the sprinkles.


Product List:
(all of the above are from Whimsy Stamps)
xpress blending card, 110lb recollections card stock, SU card stock
memento ink, distress ink

What a perfect birthday card for a small child. It's so fun and cute. So glad your getting out and enjoying the snow. We decided to go to a state park and do some hiking this weekend. We've never hiked in the winter before. We'll see how it goes.
