I used some Peel-Off Stickers & Tombow markers to make this Cupcake Celebration card. First I cut a piece of Watercolor Paper large enough to cover the Frames Round Peel-Off Sticker, adhered the sticker to the Watercolor Paper & colored using Tombow Dual Brush Markers, a blender pen & Aqua painter. After I finished coloring, I fussy cut around the image & glued it to the front of my card base. I used two Elizabeth Craft Designs dies (Happy Birthday & Thank You) to make the sentiment. The word die cuts are fairly flexible so I was able to curve them around the circle. I added a little bit of gloss to the image & sentiment with glaze pens.
I used Karen Burniston's Lucy Label Pop It Up as a platform to animate another cupcake, this one I used the Cupcake with Candle & Bow die to cut the same black patterned paper you see in the background. While I was coloring the cupcake on Watercolor Paper, I also colored a few hearts that was on the Cupcake Peel-Off Sticker sheet. I die cut another Lucy Label & embossed the platform area with Karen's new Damask Embossing Folder. I cut a flourish from Just Add Cake DSP using Agatha Edges & added that to the bottom of my card.
The sentiment is from Sweet Little Sentiments & I used Tombow markers to color directly onto the stamp, huffed on the stamp & then stamped onto Whisper White. I used glaze pens on the cupcake after coloring with Tombow Dual Brush Markers.
I had to cut the candle off from the cupcake because it stuck out of the card in its closed position. To fix that, I die cut another cupcake to get another candle to glue lower down into the cupcake.....problem solved.
Remember the problem we just talked about? Well if I had cut the little slot further back on the Lucy Label, I never would've had the problem in the first place........but I didn't know that at the time I was using the slot die from Lots of Pops to cut the little slot for the flagpole. You can see from this side view that I have the flagpole inserted through the slot so I can glue the cupcake to it so it will stand up. To make the flagpole longer I left my cutting plate off the end of the flagpole die while cutting & just cut the length longer with my scissors.
