TECC36 Eat Your Cupcake!!!


Hey you all and TGIF!!!

I'm so thrilled to be Taylor VanBruggen's *Featured Cupcake Sampler* this week!!!
My week started out kind of slow...didn't feel like I had any *Mojo*going - yep - it happens to me too!!! But then I received this wonderful e-mail from Taylor asking me to be the *her* Cupcake girl and I was like a new person - wahhooo!!! Thank you Taylor for making my week!!!
Just realized my card qualifies for today's LSC188 too!!!

Wasn't sure what colors to use at first - so many options - but then I thought I really like the new *In Colors* and I have not had much of a chance to use the *Pacific Point* and I made it my focal point. Click on the picture to see it larger!!!

I started out embossing the Pacific Point CS with my CB *Dotted* folder. For the panel across I used Tangerine Tango and pierced the top and bottom. I raised this panel with Stampin Dimensionals.

The image itself is from the *Inkadinkado* Set called *Birthday Cupcake* I found it the other day at the new opening of our Hobby Lobby store!!! A girl can't have enough Cupcake Stamps - yeahhh - and it came in so handy for the Sketch!!!

I stamped the Cupcakes with Close to Cocoa and colored them with Prismacolor Markers - Pumpkin Orange (matches Tangerine Tango) PM-153, Limepeel (matches Kiwi Kiss) PM-124, Peacock Blue (matches Pacific Point) PM-125 and Colorless Blender. I used a Brown Copic Marker #E47 for the bottom of the Cupcakes plus a Glitter Pen to add some *sparkles*!!! The second, fourth and sixth cupcake are raise with Stampin Dimensionals.

The sentiment is from a *Hero Arts* Cupcake Set. It was inked in Pacific Point Ink and punched out with SU *Circle Punches*.

Hope you like my take on Taylor's Sketch??? Hope you'll find a chance to play along - have a great weekend!!!

Congrats Silke! Love your sweet card! It's so you, but I recognized Taylor's sketch right off!

I made a card yesterday, and when I finished I thought I must have been channelling you! And I just love it! I hope to get it photographed and posted this weekend so you can see if it's "you" or no!
