Cupcake Belly – House Mouse Designs

Another birthday card!  LOL!  There is always someone with a birthday!  I used a stamp from Stampendous called Cupcake Belly from the House Mouse Designs collection.  They are so cute!

Here is what I came up with…

 
 

I colored the image with my Copic markers, but unfortunately forgot to write them down when I was coloring.  L.  For the background, I used another stamp from Stampabilities called Polka Dot.  I stamped it in Chocolate Chip ink from Stampin Up.  I love this color of brown!  It reminds me of chocolate!  (Too bad it doesn’t smell like chocolate……that would make it even better!)  The background on the image is a stamp from Stampin up, Gorgeous Grunge.

Another look…

 
 

I have not used embossing paste before but thought I would give it a try.  I wanted to make the icing on the cupcake stand out.  I mixed it with Distress Inks, Picked Raspberry.  I was really happy with the way it turned out and am sure I will be using this paste again.

A close up. . .

 

The Happy Birthday is from Stampin Up, Birthday Messages.   I used clear embossing powder to make it stand out.

And one final look…

 
Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
