Occasions Mini Cupcake

I'm a little behind already this year.  Yesterday the occasions mini began and I haven't posted anything yet so I need to fix that.

Over the Christmas holidays, my youngest daughter Taygan and I snuck up to the stamp room for a bit.  We love hanging out and making cards.

I had some fantastic new products sitting on my stamping desk for a couple weeks and I was itching to ink up the set Create a Cupcake and use the new Cupcake punch but..... I love Taygan's card so much that I am sharing her card with you today that she created using some of these products.

She created a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 birthday card beginning with an Old Olive base.  She has a huge stack of patterned paper and managed to find this fun striped paper that goes well with her base colour.  She stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Level 1 Hostess set Afterthoughts in Old Olive ink.  Then she set about punching out her cupcake bases and tops. She used Stampin' Write markers to colour the bottom of the cupcakes and Chunky glitter and Glass Glitter to cover the cupcake tops. 

She popped these up using dimensionals.  I think what I love most is how she used dew drops as the 'cherry' on top of the cupcake.

I hope you like Taygans card as much as I do.
