WWYS #78: Sweet Cupcake

Happy, happy Monday and here we are with another week of the What Will You Stamp Challenge Blog! This week's challenge is to use the Sweet Cupcake stamp set. This is a really fun set that puts two and three step stamping to good use. 

I started my card with the cupcake bottom stamped in Soft Sky. Truth be told I do not have this stamp set. I was able to stamp one image using a friend's set and that was all I had to work with-No mistakes allowed!! I wanted to do something really different with this set and when I figured out what I wanted to do I wished I had stamped that cupcake bottom in any shade of green! No matter, I got out my trusty friend (Clear Wink of Stella) and repainted the cupcake bottom using Wild Wasabi ink. My goal was to try to transform this cupcake wrapper into a grass skirt... What do you think? Once I had my grass skirt the rest of the card just fell into place with the cute little hula dancing bear (I so wish I had put arms on her-shaking my head at myself). 

I used the Fox Builder Punch to build the bear, the Botanical Builder Framelits to give my card a tropical look. I used Timeless Textures to give the bear's coconut top a textured look.

There are so many fun details that I enjoyed adding to this card! I sponged and splattered the background, added lovely DSP and framelit cut pieces, vellum and copper thread and white/clear enamel dots topped it all off. I bet you're wondering how I got the clear enamel dot? Pretty simple! When I was removing one of the white dots from the plastic sheet I accidentally removed the white backing from the dot and ended up with this clear dot! I was thrilled because I LOVE clear dots! I added a little Fast Fuse to the back and it held nicely. Sometimes mistakes can lead to fun discoveries!

Here's one last shot of my card. I sure hope you liked my take on using this stamp set.

Here's a look at the whole Sweet Cupcake stamp set. Pretty fun! I've seen some really amazing cards made with this set and can't wait to see what the rest of the WWYS Design Team has come up with this week.
