Wednesday Stamper theme! I needed to make a card for a swap and was having a difficult time coming up with an idea - cake and birthdays pretty much go hand in hand, so my problem was solved.
Using paper from Tim's Shabby Chic collection, I created a cupcake using an adorable stamp from Oxford Impression's Fairy Sweets collection and sepia Archival ink. I stamped the top on white cardstock and applied a liberal coat of white Sparkly Fluff. The pieces were cut out and pieced together as shown.
The little girl from Tim Holtz's Winged Things 1 set was stamped on white cardstock and colored using Distress inks. Her wings were stamped on acetate and adhered to the back. I created my card base using the Sanded Core'dinations technique from the Technique Junkie newsletter and the Collage Texture Fade embossing folder. The text piece (a gift from a sweet friend!) was cut using the Tim Holtz Baroque die. I added a little more sparkle by edging it with Cotton Candy Stickles.
To finish off the card, I added a strip of ruffled ribbon from Tim's Trimmings, secured with Wondertape, and a piece of vintage rickrack. After adhering all the layers, I attached a Memo Pin holding an Adage Ticket that's been covered with Rock Candy Distress Stickles.
I wish I could show all the sparkly bits better! It is so pretty in real life. I sure hope the recipient likes pink! ;-)
