Birthday Cupcake

Hi Stamping Friends!

Today I have the final card from my birthday stamp camp:

This would be the card that caused the most ruckus among my camp partcipants.  They all loved it, but some gals just don't care to do so much fussy cutting.  And because I'm a "frugal" Dutch woman, I cut my card kits to the exact paper measurements.  That doesn't leave much room for error.  In this case, some of the ladies stamped the whole cupcake on the pink DSP and not just the top half.  Normally they would just flip the paper over and stamp on the other side.  But with DSP, the other side is a whole new pattern!  So a few ladies ended up with different colored frosting.  But they were good sports about it.  Sometimes I have a few scraps lying around that I'll give them, but I held this camp at my church and didn't think to bring any scraps with me.

The card base is Kraft.  The cupcake comes from the Crazy For Cupcakes stamp set.  The sentiment is from the Well Scripted set in the Occasions Mini catalog.  The blue paper looke like Tempting Turquoise, but its really Taken With Teal.  Just my normal bad lighting!  The DSP is from the Sweet Pea DSP pack.  I adore this pack of papers.  So many great girl AND boy patterns.  You rarely get that in one paper pack!  I'm debating if I should get another pack before April 30th.

Speaking of cupcakes... I visited both of the bakeries where I have my cards for sale: Goodies Cookies and The Frosted Muffin, both in Visalia, CA (in case you're ever in the neighborhood!).  Can you believe I sold 33 cards at each bakery?!!  I was pleasantly surprised.  Now I have a few more stamping dollars to spend in May when the Summer Mini catalog comes out.  Yay for new stamping stuff!!  I really need to visit the little bakery in our town and see if they would sell some cards too.  Can't hurt to ask!  I also need to make more cupcake cards, since they seem to be my best sellers, especially at the cupcake shop!
