Stampin’ Assembly:

    1. Fold Very Vanilla (VV) Card Stock in half along scored line, use bone folder to crease.
    2. Use Snail Adhesive to attach Pretty in Pink Card Stock to VV fold over with the crease to your left.
    3. Grab the remaining small piece of VV Card Stock and place it on a smooth surface.
    4. Use the brush end of the Chocolate Chip Stampin’ Write Marker to color in the bottom of the cupcake.
    5. Use the brush end of the regal rose stampin’ write marker to color in the top of the cupcake.
    6. Look at your inked image to ensure coverage, and gently blow warm air onto it to re-hydrate the ink.
    7. Stamp on to top quadrant of smaller VV piece.
    8. Use 2-way glue pen to cover the cupcake frosting with glue.
    9. Dump dazzling diamonds onto wet glue and allow to dry for a few seconds.
    10. Ink the greeting from Party Hearty “you take the cake” with the brush end of your chocolate chip stampin’ write marker and stamp greeting directly below the cupcake.
    11. Affix ribbon around VV cardstock, and tie in a knot, cut ends at an angle.
    12. Affix stamped vv piece to chocolate Chip Cardstock with snail adhesive.. a little to each corner, one spot in the middle will do.
    13. Affix the chocolate chip/vv focal image to the pretty in pink cardstock on the front of the card.

I know some of you are going to wonder why I used a regal rose stampin’ write marker instead of the Pretty in Pink stampin’ write marker… well, the initial, frank, and absolutely honest reason is I didn’t know where it was… but I stopped looking for it when I realized that the dazzling diamonds would dull the color anyway and opted for the regal rose which when muted looks like Pretty in Pink anyway!

Isn’t that quick and easy?  Hope you liked it, and I’ll see you again tomorrow with something new!

Pin It!
