Cuteness Overload

Hi Sweet Crafty Peeps!

Today I  have  2  special  treats  to share with you.

First,  from one of my  Creative  Team Artists,  Aletha,  here is  her gourmet project  featuring  Cupcake Sticky Wings.  Her recipe  follows:)

Here’s the recipe:
Copics used:
Skin: E000, 00, 11, R02
Icing, Wings, Baubles:
BG000, 02, 05, 07, 09
Eyes, Cupcake sleeve:
G40, 82, 94, 99
Hair, Dress, Wings:
RV91, 93, 95, 69
Ruffles, Socks, Cake:
Y21, 23, 26, 35
W00, 0, 1, 2, BG 02

"Cupcake was colored with Copics with a little accenting from a clear Wink of Stella Brush Glitter Marker. After the coloring I trimmed her with Spellbinder’s Label One die. I cut another piece with the same die but in Stampin’ Up!’s Rich Razzelberry cardstock. I then layered Cupcake on top of this cut.

My designer paper is Stampin’ Up!’s Petals and Paisleys collection. This was trimmed to size and distressed with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. For my layering I used more Rich Razzelberry and added Old Olive cardstock.

For my embellishments I used some Spellbinder’s Die D-Lites Blooms One. My little sprigs are another D-Lites die Corner Sprigs. I found the ribbon in my stash (so glad I kept this), and tied the bow and added the Happy Birthday sentiment from Cindy Echtinaw’s new clear stamp set “Big & Small Says it All.” I love all of Cindy’s stamps. The majority of her stamps are designed for Spellbinder’s dies. After the stamping, I cut Happy Birthday with the D-Lites die Petite Label One. I think I am going to be using the D-Lites dies a lot. That die cut was glued to my bow."
