Happy New Year!
OK - I finally got a chance to use my new flourishes sweet treats set. I love the cake stand! I stamped it on white Georgia Pacific Cardstock with Jet Black Archival Ink, colored the scallops and feet with copics, then stamped it on Basic Grey Two Scoops and paper pieced the "flat areas". I stamped each cupcake with walnut stain, colored the "icing" with glue pen and glittered it. Then I cut each one out and placed it on the cake stand. I used glaze pen for the cherry on top. The card base is from my brand new package of that lucious pink pirouette, layered with chocolate chip and basic grey two scoops dp. I stamped the sentiment in walnut stain on pink pirouette layered with chocolate chip. This is one of those "simple cards" that takes forever. The layout is simple, but the paper piecing, glittering and cutting out of each cupcake took a long time. I am happy with it, though. After all, who could resist glittery cupcakes?
