Kraftin ' Kimmie Stamps - Let them eat cupcakes

To really make a stamp pop try a subtle matting and a lot of white. This great stamp set is by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and is called "Let them eat cupcakes". A simple sentiment makes this the perfect card for any reason, be it birthday or just because.

Copics List 
Skin E00 E01 E02 E04
Hair C1 C3 C5 C7
Buns E21 E23
 Shirt C1 C3
Pants B93 B95 B97 B99
Shoes B93 B97
Headband B95 B97 B99
Yellow Y06 Y13 Y19
Red R24 R29 R59

For the base I used a beautiful blue patterned paper from My Mind's Eye 6x6 paper pad called "Nutmeg". 

The sentiment is an oldie but a goodie from Stampin' Up called "Short and sweet".

I added foam under the sentiment to add dimension.

Your next Stamp - Cute Home

Whether you're celebrating a friend's new home or sending a note to a long lost pen-pal this "Cute House (CNYS423) stamp set is perfect. A great Canadian stamp company, Your Next Stamp, brings you this versatile stamp set. One of my go-to papers is Neenah 80lbs Super Smooth Coverstock paired with Black ink - India Ink by Hero Arts. The black is rich and crisp and the Copic markers blend well on these sheets without a worry. 80lb coverstock is great when you are fussy cutting around an image and it will hold up well.

Copic Color Chart:
Yellow: Y11 Y13 Y19
Blue: B000 B00
Green : YG03 YG05 YG06 YG07
Red: R14 R29 R39
Grey Roof and Steps: C1 C3
Windows: N2 N4
Brown : E23 E25

For the background I used a fun rainbow themed paper I found in Lawn Fawn's "Really Rainbow" 6x6 paper pad.


To create the grass I found a scrap piece of solid green card stock and put it through my Sizzix Big Shot using the Your Next Stamp "Chunky Grass Die".

You'll find the clouds paper in this oldie but a goodie of a paper pad by American Crafts called #Summer. 

 I used red cardstock to mat the piece and cut out the word Hello with a die that I had in my case, unfortunately I don't know the brand but many companies have great "Hello" dies. I used the same die to also cut out a 2 matching pieces of foam so that it could be layered.

For a hidden fun feature I used the flowers for the inside of the card as I found them to be a tad bit disproportionate compared to the tree and house.
