Crazy for Cupcakes

I want to start today's post by saying thank you so very much for all the heartfelt messages you have left for me here and in the emails and cards I have received since I posted last. It is comforting to know that so many people care.

We are hanging in there and keeping busy. We have started the sad & daunting task of going through my MIL's things. Both my husband and SIL took this week off work and we've been working hard, but she was a collector of many things...so no end in sight at this point. I did get a chance to do a little stamping the other night and played with my new Crazy for Cupcakes set, which is on special this month...here's what I came up with.
I can tell that this set is going to be a lot of fun! I have seen a lot of cute cards done with this set using the paper piecing technique, so that's what I was excited to try first. I used the Haiku Designer papers and paired it up with Regal Rose, Pumpkin Pie & Celery card stock. With the use of my handy, dandy Stamp-a-ma-jig I was able to use the "Happy Birthday" arch stamp and create a circle. Then I punched out one of the cute cupcakes from the Cupcakes wheel for the center. The background was created using the Canvas background and the Cupcakes wheel both inked in Pumpkin Pie.

With these cute images and happy colors you can't help but make a fun & festive birthday card. And let me tell ya...I'm in desperate need of some fun & festivity about now! I'm glad I have my stamp club coming over tomorrow night...I'm sure they'll cheer me up! I'll be back over the weekend to share this months stamp club projects. Thanks again for your kind words during this hard time...it means a lot.

Hey, Lynn...love the card! Super cute :o)

I have to say, I found your blog by searching your name after seeing this card:

That's the first time I felt inspired by a card in the Stamper's Showcase to STALK the artist! LOL..

LOVE your creations, TFS!

I love this card and the paper piercing and the coloring. I've asked for some copic markers for my birthday and I can't wait to get them and try them out!
