Cupcakes for YOU?

Cupcakes are all the rage, next to owls, in my opinion. SOOOOOOO, I just HAD to get this new SUP! stamp set that just came available less than two weeks ago! Crazy for cupcakes is so majorly adorable! I also just LOVE this new paper by SUP!, too! Washington Apple has so many great patterns in it, large small, multicolored, solids; I can just imagine the possibilities! ( I should have ordered 10 sets!)

I fashioned this card after Clean & Simple's post today, which mentioned using black to make things POP. Well... what do you think?? I color-matched the cupcakes to the patterned paper using my Copic markers. I used a cool shade around the cupcakes and stand to offset them from the white in the paper. It is hard to see, but I doubled-up my ribbon, with a crisp blue on a cute orange plaid organza. OH, and did you notice the cute little cherries with their glossy opaque white shiny spot? Gotta love the details!

Don't let the simplicity of this card fool ya either. I had to keep slimming my paper down to the 1/16" to get that checkered piece to fit nicely between the two blacks! UGH! It was worth it since it turned out cute; at least I think so.

Anyone have a birthday coming up??

Holy cow, this is GORGEOUS!!! I can appreciate the effort matting it on the checked paper because I tend to try to do that with my scrapbooking! I love all the little deets on the cakes and the double ribbon tied in that adorable bow!!! Rock on!

What an absolutely adorable card Nicole. I LOVE cupcakes so I guess I'm following along with the current "rage."

btw, I do more photography these days than paper crafting. :-)
