Cupcake Birthday Card ~ Red Rubber Designs DT

     Happy Birthday to my wonderful son who turned 15 today! I made some of his favorite cupcakes on this card using stamps from Red Rubber Designs!

     My design inspiration came from Card Sketch #91 @ Sketch ~N~Scrap!

     I started by stamping the background with the Gingham Background Unmounted Rubber Stamp. Then I used Distress Spray Stains to make the tag on the left, masking the numbers with Distress Inks. The hearts and circles, along with the cupcakes, were stamped with the Sweet Day Cupcake Unmounted Stamp Set. Each cupcake was frosted with gesso, where I added small beads while wet, for some sprinkles. The cherry and kiss were coated with Glossy Accents.

     The other tag was stamped with the Background Stripes Unmounted Stamp using Candied Apple  Distress Ink. I colored all of the cupcakes with Distress Spray Stains, adding some to my gesso with the kiss popped on top. The cupcakes stamped with the silver liners originally come with a butterfly on top, but was easy to mask out with the gesso.

     Then I popped up the peppermint (my son's FAVE) stamped with the Sugar Coated Sweetness
stamp. I finished it up with silver hand-stitching right under the sentiment stamped with the Sweet Sayings stamp.

Thanks for looking!
