Cupcake Cutie - My Favorite Things New Product Tour

Tonight I have a few cards to share with you in preparation for the upcoming release at My Favorite Things.  I've got a few ideas to share with the fun new character from Wendy Burns titled Cupcake Cutie. Be sure to check the My Favorite Things Blog for a full list of designer participating in tonight's New Product Tour! 


Remember, the new products will be available 
on April 9th at 10 PM in the MFT Boutique.

For my first card, I stamped the Cupcake Cutie to watercolor paper and embossed. Then I reached for my Holtz Distress Markers and my water brush.  The larger scale of this image is just perfect for the technique. I added a bit of glitter to the trim on her dress. Oh, how I love water coloring....  I lightly dusted her cheeks with chalks when I was done watercoloring. 


This sweet stamp set also offers this adorable cupcake stand.  Using the masking technique, I was able to tuck the cupcake stand just behind the image of the little girl.  I used Inge's MFT Academy Tutorial for a some pencil coloring on Kraft card stock.  I've only done a little bit of embellishment on the card front with a lone Fishtail Flags STAX, one Sno Cone Button and a bit of hemp cord.  

Using a ruler and a pen, I drew in a little floor for her to stand on. 


Since I'd water colored and used my pencils, well my makers were feeling a little unloved....  I used some of the hair coloring tips I'd learned from Michele's MFT Academy Post on hair coloring and got to work.  I tucked in a sentiment from the Birthday Sentiments stamp set, also being released tonight onto the Mini Tabs Foursome and added a Sno Cone Button tied with a bit of hemp cord.  The Bracket Edge Duo Die-namics gives just a little graceful detail along the bottom of the card.  


Check it out, the cupcake stand itself is perfectly adorable for a little girly gift tag.  The Beautiful Bows Die-namics are just beyond sweetness when they're cut from felt.  Today I've used Whip Cream felt and a snippet of Kraft Grosgrain Ribbon.   I plucked this sentiment from More Essential Sentiments.  If you haven't already picked up the Traditional Tags STAX, honestly, it's a must have....

The background was stamped with Versamark using the Darling Dots stamp set.


Since I already had all the tag elements out on my desk, I decided to use just the cute little dog image from this stamp set for one more tag, this time, it's a teeny one. And, since I just happened to still have my pencils ready, I gave Inge's pencil technique another spin.  This sentiment is part of the new Birthday Sentiments stamp set included in this month's release.  


Okay friends, phew, that's IT!  Lots of ways to use the Cupcake Cutie, I hope you'll check her out as part of this month's new release. Here are the links to the products I've used today, the Cucpake Cutie link will work as of Tuesday at 10pm EST.
