Cupcakes and Valentines

Happy Monday!  

I have been a bit crafty this weekend, so I wanted to share just one of my creations with you.

I bought some embossing paste a few months back...and have been itching to use it.  And I finally did!   LOVE that stuff.  It is a bit hard for a perfectionist to work with...but I dealt with it.  :-)

I used a Simon Says Stitch rectangle die to cut the base mat out of Papertrey Ink cardstock. 

Then I applied the embossing paste over a Simon Says Falling Hearts Stencil.  

While the paste dried, I die cut a stitched circle and stamped a cupcake, from the Peachy Keen January 2014 stamp set with My Favorite Things Black Licorice Hybrid Ink.  I colored the top and plate of the cupcake with Copics.  The cupcake wrapper was paper pieced.   

I put some Wink of Stella clear glitter brush pen on the heart, then applied some glossy accents.  

The sentiment was stamped on parchment vellum.  The card base was made out of the same cardstock the cupcake wrapper was paper pieced from.  

It is a double sided piece of cardstock from Bella Blvd.   
I think that the patterns are great for this card.  

For the inside of the card, I cut a piece of white Papertrey Ink cardstock smaller than the card base, so that the inside paper pattern would show.  

I stamped the cupcake again, with Pure Poppy Ink, paper pieced the wrapper, and added glossy accents to the heart, to match the front panel.  

The sentiment is from Cardz TV Happy Days Stamp set.  To finish it off, I stamped small heart from the Peachy Keen Stamp set with the same Pure Poppy Ink.  

Hope you have enjoyed my creation, as much as I enjoyed creating and sharing it.
