Simplicity OLW#11

This is the one and only remotely amusing stamp I have, just doesn't seem to be my thing on handmade cards (love getting them).  The sentiment is from a beautiful Flourishes set but I went back to my  favourite cupcake image I used last year for my daughter's 7th birthday invitations.  Hopefully I can attach a photo of the invite.

What you need

Cardstock - PTI White
Stamps - Flourishes "Let them eat cake";  SU Crazy for cupcakes
Ink - Versamark, Memento Tuxedo Black
Embossing powder - Zing! Black (glitter finish)
Kindyglitz - Black, Red
Copics - E55, E59, RV02, RV13
Felt pens - Black marker, SU Stampin' Write (Real Red)

This is the pull out invitation, these were her favourite colours (and we know how transient that is!), and I happened to have sheets of this paper that I could get rid of - er, I mean, which I had for this purpose.  Hadn't discovered the delights of Copics so watecoloured the cupcakes (yes, all 20 invitations), and used SU Dazzlin' Diamonds for the cake icing.


  1. Always check out the dessert selection before you eat the main course, that's what my nana taught me! Lovely.

  2. I concur. Dessert is definitely the priority.

    Cute, cute card! And so is the invitation...what a lot of work for 20 of them!

  3. Wow, both the card and the invited look fabulous!

  4. I love it...definitely dessert first!! Adorable card...and the birthday invite is really cute too!

  5. I prefer dessert first, middle, and last, but that's just me! :) Cute card!
