Sprinkle On The Fun

I love cupcakes—real and drawn, keychain or dessert. So, of course I own the cupcake stamp set from my fave company, Hero Arts. I have a few birthdays this month for friends, so I made some cupcake cards with the Hero Arts sentiment below.

I used my Doodlebug Design cupcake stickers and tried my hand at shaker cards again. These went better than my previous attempts, but still not smoothly. One doesn't shake as loosely as I'd like (the sequins tend to get stuck) and one has marks where the foam tape is underneath. sigh. I swear to you, one day I will make an actual shaker card to be proud of. In the meantime, I have these. Luckily, the people I send them to won't be picky and judgmental :)

The green sticker corners are also Doodlebug Design. The papers, including the Oh Happy Day are from a 6x6 paper pad called Hello Sunshine by Lawn Fawn. 

Here's another that uses the same papers and stickers but isn't a shaker card and uses this adorable Washi Tape from Artsyville over at Etsy. I just ordered from there and got a surprise from the owner in my package. You've got to go over and see how adorable her products are!

Here's a delightful jumbo magnet from Artsyville. They make more than just washi!

Now that I've shared my cupcake cards, I think I need a cupcake from my favorite local bakery, Cake, Hope and Love. Here's one of their yummy cupcakes. If you're near Dayton, you gotta try them—they beat Gigi's by a mile!

And if you love cupcakes, you'll love this card set from Hero Arts, available here at a2z Scrapbooking. They might have them at Target, but you'll find them on sale at a2z! Plus you can use CHARK15 to get a 15% discount on your $25+ order. How yummy is that?! I love cards that are easy like this. I'd add my sentiment stamp and some Stickles to the frosting.

Happy Wednesday! Glad you stopped by!
