Embellishment Opportunities


crazy for cupcakes



Many of you have heard me say it……”There are no stamping mistakes, only embellishment opportunities!” This card is one of those which turned out very different than the original design I had intended, due to a couple of those “opportunities”. I love the way it all came together, though.

The first mistake I mean, opportunity, was cutting my ribbon too short, but playing with it gave me this pretty application. One I will be using again. I really like it!

The next thing that didn’t work out as originally planned was the rub-on sentiment. First, I used the white sentiment from Chit Chat. It got lost in the paper design and the design showed through a little.  I wanted  to use the dark one, but instead of starting over with a new layer; I decided to offset the white a little and give it a shadow or embossed look. Turned out even better than I had hoped!


Those rub-ons are addictive! You get over 150 sayings in two colors and they are so easy to apply. This card also uses the Rasberry Tart DSP (Gorgeous). The colors are Pretty in Pink, Cameo Coral, Real Red, Rose Red and Kiwi Kiss. I also used the Ribbon Originals-Pigtails. The Kiwi polkadot is so much fun, I’ll be using it up quickly! Of course, the set is Crazy for Cupcakes. You’ll be seeing a lot of this one.


Happy Stampin’
