Hey Cupcake! Tutorial, Giveaway! Queen Kat Challenge


Hey There Cupcake
Hey there Cupcakes! I hope each of you are having a "sweet" day! I have a quick video for you making a Cupcake Card for the Triple Tiara challenge over at Queen Kat Designs. She is giving away a $25.00 voucher for rubber stamps! Woot! Woot! Make sure you link up your card (the Linky tool is on her right hand side bar--so you have to look for it)**You do NOT have to use QKD stamps for this challenge, but if you do get them out and show them off**

Now, we were required to use this sketch above--which was easy peasy and so darling! I also used the Rock Princess Cart and some Cupcake and Cherry stamps from QKD, along with my Cri-Kit pens! See below for ingredients to whip this little guy up in a snap. Better yet, gather the ingredients and make this card with me. It will be like we are crafting together--man if only we could in person! But for now, this will have to do!
I just loved this cupcake ribbon yesterday when I saw it at Michaels, and I then I pulled out the cupcake stamp I had bought in QKD's grab bag! I used my cri-kit pens and my Face It cut file set to draw this sweet little face onto my cupcake guy using the white gel pen! I wanted him to look like he had a "frosting" face!
