Happy Birthday, Cupcake!

I am so happy to have “The More, the Merrier” stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  I wanted it for over a year and when it retired, Terry Bolender sold it to me.  🙂  This was the first time I used one of the stamps from this new-used stamp. The card I made was for a fellow card-maker, which always makes me nervous because I figure the recipient could make a better card than I could.

Here it is – I used a DCWV card, some ribbon and buttons.  The cupcakes were colored with my very glittery Copic Spica AtYou markers but I don’t think the picture captures how sparkly they are.  If you like cupcakes, you might enjoy this blog post about some cupcakes I made.

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.

    • Thanks, Jayma! Those Copic pens are amazing and they would be a great replacement for Stickles or glue + fine glitter. They are THAT sparkly, especially when the color is dabbed and not colored like we do with other markers.
