Sweet Delight Cuppies

Hi everyone! I have two cards to show you today using the adorable SASI cupcake stamps from Taylored Expressions.

The first is for today's SCS Sketch Challenge (SC204). The DP, red organdy ribbon, and prism papers are all from the Christmas Key Ingredients pack. The image was stamped onto Poison Ivory Shimmer CS and colored with Copic markers. I saw my good friend Dawn (hi, Dawn!) do this on one of the OCC challenges and she said how the shimmer shines through the coloring. She was right! This looks so pretty IRL. I added some Platinum and Candy Cane Stickles to the image, and the whole panel is popped up on 1/8" foam tape that I got at Taylor's store. It stands higher than the SU dimensionals.

Stamps: SASI Season's Sweetings (Taylored Expressions)
Paper: Brown Medium Prism Paper, Blush Red Dark Prism Paper, Herbal Garden Medium Prism Paper, and Be Merry DP from Christmas Key Ingredients at TE; Poison Ivory Shimmer CS from
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Copics: 0 Colorless Blender, W1 Warm Gray, W5 Warm Gray, R46 Strong Red, R59 Cardinal, E35 Chamois, E47 Dark Brown, G94 Grayish Olive, G99 Olive
Accessories: Red Organdy Ribbon from Key Ingredients at Taylored Expressions, Gold Metallic String from Stamper's Dream, Platinum and Candy Cane Stickles, 1/8" Foam Tape from Taylored Expressions

The next card is for Taylor's Sketch #TECC43 from last Friday. The green Prism paper, DP, and ribbon are all part of the Christmas Key Ingredients pack. The red ZVA rhinestones are also available at Taylored Expressions. The main image was stamped onto Cryogen White Shimmer CS and colored with Copic markers. The edges of the main panel and the white oval sentiment were sponged with Always Artichoke ink. The sponged oval sentiment is up on SU Dimensionals and then the green scalloped oval behind it is just glued down with regular adhesive.

One more day 'til Turkey Day!! Yahooo!! Are you excited as I am? My husband and I have been on the South Beach diet for over two weeks now (and it's going really well...I've lost 4 pounds so far and DH has lost 9 pounds), but we're so ready to just have a slice of pie (real pie with real sugar, LOL!).

Have a GREAT day, all!
