In the past two weekends my kids have gone to four birthday parties...needless to say, we go through a LOT of birthday cards! For these one-layer cards, I embossed the cupcakes using black embossing powder, then painted them with watercolors. The sentiment and cupcake are both Studio G stamps I found at Michael's. I added backgrounds on two cards, but left the other two white and added ribbon instead.
Materials Used: Studio G sentiment and cupcake; Hero Arts Designer Woodgrain, Cling Dots;
Glossy Accents; watercolor paints; ribbon; black pearls.
Here is a close-up of the embossed cupcakes and the cherries covered with Glossy Accents...
Guess what? Today I got a package from my recent order at Two Peas In A Bucket...I got some great sale items and I can't wait to play with them!
Finally, I have to share a picture of a birds nest my DH and I stumbled upon the other day while doing some yard work. Momma robin had flown away momentarily so I grabbed my camera, stuck my arm up blindly into the tree and aimed down, hoping to find something in the nest. Here is what I found...
Gotta love nature! Needless to say, we now check on the nest every day. I'll see if I can get more pics as the days and weeks go on.
Did I ever mention that my favorite color is robin's egg blue?
OK, that's it for now. Have a good one!
