Verve - Cupcake-a-licious!

Here it is...after weeks of coveting their stamps, my first Verve card! I have to say...I can't believe how well these stamp....honestly, the coverage is as good as (in some cases...a little better!) than rubber! Love it!
Isn't this cupcake just the CUTEST?! I love this set, Cupcake Affair - had to have it right away! It's been forever since I baked some cupcakes - probably cos I don't have a dishwasher and hate the cleaning up after icing them - but stamping them is almost as much fun!

I went all candy coloured with this card - not intentional, I just inked up my cupcake with the first colour I thought of! I used some Marigold Morning to shade the flowers and found that going back over every second line on the cupcake liner enhanced the pleated look.

I used Baby Blue liquid pearls on the "icing" and white Kaiser pearls on the flowers. The ribbon is from a couple of rolls I picked up for like $2 each - love layering it like this.

The "what-looks-like-patterned-paper" is actually a stamp from the Grateful Elegance set, beeeautiful stamp!

Oh, I almost forgot...the sketch is from Julee for Mojo Monday #49 - so cool to finally do one of her sketches with her stamps!
