Just for YOU!

When I saw this sketch from Saturday Sketch, I wanted to use Whipper Snapper stamp, which one?! that's the hard part....LOL! Don't you just have too much stamps and don't know which one to use first?

Anyway, after figuring out which the best stamp to fit this sketch, next thing to figure is what color combination to use. I remember when I start making cards that picking the right colors was the hardest part for me, well, it still is. I usually grab stack of my pattered paper and get an inkpiration from there. And that's what I did here.

And, it's been awhile since the last time these cupcake stamp had been inked and what a party without a cupcake...right?! The Party Koala's nose is covered with crystal effects (so, his nose is all shiny) and the cupcakes are covered with liquid applique and drizzle it with crystal stickles and topped with red dew drops.

Stamp: Party Koala from Whipper Snapper Design

Paper: Whisper White, Bashful Blue, Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Chip card stock from Stampin' Up and Patterned Paper by Imaginisce (Party Poppers)

Ink: VersaFine Onyx Black and SU re-inkers

Accessories: Oval Template, Crystal Effects, Liquid Applique, Dew Drops, 1" circle puunch and Stampin' Dimensional and Crystal Stickles
