cupcake birthday cards

Hello!  Today I have some birthday cards to share.  Usually I don't mass produce birthday cards but I made one and I thought it came out cute and so then I thought I should make some more.  Plus if I have to take out all the supplies, might as well make more and birthday cards are so useful to have around.

This is the first one I made using some cute stamp sets from Mama Elephant.  I really love this cupcake set.  I heat embossed the cupcake and sentiment first in white onto watercolor cardstock.  Then I took my distress ink pads and rubbed them onto an old plastic cover to use as a palette.  I added some water and brushed on the colors like a rainbow over the white embossed areas.  After that was all dried I added the cute bunny wearing a bow.  I added some sequins for fun too.

These are the ones I made after.  No sequins on these.  I used different cupcakes and also tried embossing with gold on the right.  I made one bear with a party hat.

Here are the bunny versions.  I like these cupcakes the best.  They look really yummy!

I'm working on some teacher thank you cards too!  Yes, I'm working way ahead of time for the end of the school year.  Ever since I made a list of all my projects, I've been able to craft more often and keep on track.  There are days when I need to really motivate myself to get going though. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
