Here are my Tasty Treat cards...


I wanted to use the cupcakes stamps the most because many of us have the DeNami cupcakes, but may not have new ideas to use them.  Even the most seasoned stamper can use a different spin on things.  I get some wonderful ideas from blog hops so I hope I can give back some new perspectives too!


This was my first time using the Spellbinders Nestabilities on a card and I loved learning how to emboss with them also.  On the card above I added the lime green Stickles to the center of the circles on the edge. I used the larger two die cuts from the set to make these cards.

        

I backed the white die cut with a bright pink cardstock so there was a little peekaboo color around the edge.  Do you like the cupcake flowers?  Thought they were pretty fun!


For this last card I used the Spellbinders die cut as a stencil to chalk the pink/orange circles on the white. I cut another die cut in hot pink but trimmed off the beaded edge for the front.  I attached the card front to a hot pink card that I ran through the Spellbinders die cut on the fold and then lined it all up for the card.  Really like the non-traditional shaped card but it still fits in a standard envelope.

Thanks for stopping by!  Make sure you leave a comment to be eligible for DeNami's prize giveaway!

Great color scheme for your projects. Love the cupcakes stamped in a circle on the first one. It really mimics the dies perfectly. If I could grow cupcake flowers, I would never kill another plant again! Such a clever idea. Great job.
