Hello Cupcake
by Marybeth Lopez


Hello sweet friends ! Happy June to you all!

I would like to say this was a simple card to make ( It should have been) but I had many mishaps along the way. I kept going and I am happy with the results in the end.

I used Poppystamps :Whittle Cupcake die,  Luscious Script Hello and Flower Garden Clear stamp. 


One thing that was easy was using some scraps of alcohol ink papers I made, that I saved. I die cut twice for the colors then just layered the extra pieces on top of the other, to firm it up a bit.


Below are some of my first try alcohol ink papers, didn't really know what I was doing. I  used all kinds of paper, even photo paper because its what I had.  I saved them anyway and glad I did because they work great for dies.



For a little extra detail on my panel I scored it all the way around 1/2 inch.  

One of the mishaps at the end was getting a tiny bit of ink on my hand that then ended up on the panel, I was able to use an ink eraser to get it off.



It was late in the day an I didn't have the best lighting for my photo.

I also used some of the leftover papers as shown above for the top layer of the hello then stamped with the sentiment from Flower Garden. I used the cupcake to represent sweet friend. I couldn't resist adding a bit of chunky glitter to the top of the cupcake.


I hope you enjoy your weekend. Hugs to you all!
