What's Up?

Hiya!!

I hope everyone has been having a good week! The snow is slowly melting here and the warmer weather feels great i'm starting to sort through my winter cloths to make room for lighter clothes! But anyway, today i'm sharing a card i made for the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge, this is for the color inspiration:

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - The Alley Way Stamps
I started by finding ink colors that are similar to the blue and green in the photo. I went with Hero Arts Green Hills and Soft Pool. I pressed the ink pads into some white card stock, then i did the same thing with two different shades of brown ink. Next i used The Alley Way Stamps Hey Cupcake stamp set and stamped the two cupcake wrappers on the brown ink spots and the two cupcake tops on the green and blue spots. Then i cut them out and adhered the bottoms to the cupcake tops.

Then i stamped the three small circles from he Hey Cupcake set in white ink on the green cupcake. After the pigment ink was dry i colored in the circles with a white opaque pen.

Next i found some green and white polka dot pattern paper that matched my green cupcake and i adhered it to a white card base. I wanted to use the dotted notched dies, so to make sure they matched i colored up some white card base with the ink again, then used the dies.

I arranged the dies cuts together and used staples to adhere them together. At this point i needed a sentiment i thought that the Sweet Cakes in the Hey Cupcakes set would go great with the What's Up? Sentiment in the new Yappy set. I inked them up and stamped them in black ink on dotted die cuts.

Last i added the cupcakes and found some white enamel dots to add to my card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
