I’ve used cute Baby Monkey Banana from Lauretta’s Digital Stamps and coloured him with ProMarkers.The papers are printed from Craft The Year Away CD-rom from Funky Hand.I’ve mounted everything on black card.The image and mat have been cut using Grand Nestabilities Ovals.I’ve added some black brads and some fluffy fibres in keeping with the fuzzy little monkey.With such an impact of colour I decided to keep the layout simple.I also carried the design over into the inside :

Cute as a cupcake!

For my card I’ve used the cute Mom’s Cupcake from Didge’s Doodles.She is only 13 years old and also the daughter of Shell my fellow DT member at Craft Your Passion.Such a cute cupcake!I’m sure you’ll agree she’s one talented young lady.

Mom's Cupcake

*IMPORTANT*
I have to stress this is how it comes.I added the frame and stamped the wording.

Now,I’ve seen some frame stamps with wording that can be inserted into the gap and I was tempted to buy them.Then it hit me – why not create my own frames!I have the tools for the job.A fineliner pen,a ruler and oodles of sentiment stamps.It also means I won’t be restricted to just the size of the stamps,I can customise to fit any image.I marked out and drew the frame then inserted the sentiment in the space.The cupcake case  has been coloured with Promarkers.On a second image I coloured the cherry,sprinkles and hearts with Promarkers too.Using a Snow Marker I filled in the area around these.I actually gave it two coats,allowing it to dry inbetween.Once it was fully dry I gave it a blast with my heat gun,making it puff up just like fluffy icing.Once it had cooled I glued some gems into the round sprinkles and applied some Glossy Accents over the cherry and the rest of the decorations on the cake so they didn’t get lost amongst the icing.I mounted it on foam pads but stuck the cherry down flat to give the impression it was nestling in the icing.Yummy!
