oooo' icing!

Who doesn't love icing? Especially glitterfied icing! lol

I adore these little cupcakes from the Merry Muffin set by Stampendous! For this card I used paper from a DCWV paper pack called Nana's Nursery. The top piece of the card has sparklie cherries all over it. :o)

I paper pieced the cupcake holders and used Liquid Pearls to create the frosting. It's just thick enough to build up texture. I added a sprinkle of glitter before it dried. The critters are colored with Copic markers.

Because I have limited supplies (you remember, the whole moving thing), I didn't have any pink cardstock to match the paper. The central image just screamed for a color border! What's a girl to do??? Reach for the Copic markers, of course. I cut a mat out of white cardstock and colored the edge of it with R22 Light Prawn, but finding it too bright, I colored over it with RV11 Pink. It matched perfectly! Man, I love those markers! I finished it off with a white scallop border.

The sentiment is stamped on white cardstock after cutting and embossing the circle using a round Nestability. I ran a glue pen around the edge and sprinkled on some deliciously pink glitter.

The Merry Muffin set is available exclusively at Eclectic Paperie! I just have to give the store a shameless plug because those girls (Joy & Daisy) are just the best enablers to my addiction!
Go look! You'll see what I mean!!!
