Happy Heart Day Series | Hello Cupcake ft Clearly Besotted "Sweet Treats"

Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day.

Today's card is a quick and easy design that can be duplicated if the need arises. My 5 year old daughter actually came up with the basics for this design when she asked me to stamp some images for her to colour.

She likes to pick out the stamps and then tells me where to stamp them with all the seriousness of a structural architect; "no a little bit that way", "can you make the side ones come down so it looks like a rainbow", "Mommy, those aren't even" and so on. She's definitely my little artist and has a great eye for colour and layout. I think it will serve her well in the future.

To begin, I stamped the greeting and the three little hamsters from Clearly Besotted "Sweet Treats" with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on 110lb Copic-friendly cardstock, then coloured them with Copic markers.

I trimmed the top and bottom of the panel and adhered that to a piece of patterned paper by Lawn Fawn. I then mounted that to the front of my standard A2 sized card base.

To finish off the card I used some Nuvo Crystal Drops to create coordinating enamel dots and used Glossy Accents by Ranger on the sprinkles of the doughnut.

I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own. If you haven't already, please follow me on the right side bar or over on Facebook, so you don't miss any future posts. Drop me a line in the comments section below and let me know what you think.
