Stacked Cupcakes
This is one of the cute little Michael's dollar stamps I got this past weekend - it is so cute! I just had to mask them so they look like they are stacked. I used Tempting Turqoise and Certainly celery - the ribbon is just to die for - it is from Michael's - and comes on a cute wooden bobbin. I bought a couple of those! For the background I used the background stamp from Polka Dots and Paisley then colored in a few of the circles with my white gel pen. The layered background is of course done with my cuttlebug, then I sponged on some tempting turquoise. I cut the ovals using my creative memories oval cutter and mat - I have had the circles and ovals for several years and found they work great for my card creations. I doodled! I doodled around the edge of the oval and believe it or not it actually came out like I wanted it to. *wink* I don't doodle very much because I don't think I am that great at it, but maybe practice makes perfect. The brads are the jumbo brads from Hobby Lobby and the sentiment at the bottom are my karen foster snap stamps.
