CAS Lemony Cupcake card Clean and simple cards are my favourite. Using a colored background makes a great statement for some images. When not sure which color to use, pick out one color from the colored image and use it for the background. You could also ink smoosh or use alcohol inks for making the background.
I chose 2 colors Pink and Purple from the Cupcake toppers and used them for my background. I stenciled first with light Pink and light Purple and then placed the Birthday Balloon stencilover it and went to ink blend the darker shades of Pink and Purple. For Ink blending I used Distress Oxides in Kitsch Flamingo, Picked Raspberry, Shaded Lilac and Wilted Violet.
Next is a bright cheerful cupcake card with an easy Resist technique background, for which I stamped the cupcake images on the watercolor paper with Versamark and heat embossed with White Embossing powder. Then with two shades Yellow (a darker and a lighter) I colored the white heat embossed panel, in a way to get an Ombre look.
The sentiment were stamped on black strip of paper and heat embossed in white and adhered on top and bottom with glue. The Cupcakes were adhered with foam tape and embellished withSunny Sparkle illusion.
I had a chocolaty cupcake for which I chose to ink blend in Rainbow colors of Distress oxides and the I took Crafty Meraki's Party Balloon mini slim line die and cut out white cardstock and lightly went with the same colors on top of the die cut.
On top folding Red cardbase I heat embossed the sentiment in white and after creating a window with acetate sheet and adding depth with foam tape I added some shaker bits in the heart. You can check my video for detailed instructions.
I adhered the gnome behind the cupcake, as if he was coming with a big cupcake to surprise the recipient.
