Cupcake card with paper piercing!

Cupcake Card using Love à la Carte Stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs.

Have you tried paper-piercing yet?

I love how cute this is! In case you don't know - paper-piercing is stamping an image on patterned paper and then cutting it out. This is a great alternative to coloring and it is really pretty easy as long as you have a steady hand to cut! For this card I stamped the cupcake image from our brand new Love à la Carte stamp set on several different patterned papers.  I dug into my scrap pile and found colors that coordinated. I even cut out the hearts! I thought they would be too small but it actually wasn't bad at all to cute those little hearts out!  When I assembled the cupcake pieces back together I put a little foam dot between the liner bottom and the frosting top- just to add a bit of dimension. Then I used markers to color in the "jimmies" or "sprinkles". What do you call them? I usually call them sprinkles but some of my friends call them "jimmies" which I think is so funny!

    Hugs, Debbie!

  3. I love how paper piecing dresses up a card without having to use markers or other color mediums. And, so many times it is coordinated perfectly with other elements then. Your card is absolutely stunning! I love how bright and cheery it is and how perfect it would be for many happy occasions.
