Deer Cupcakes

Hi All,

back again with another helping of Inspiration. Today I have two cards for you which I made as my DT projects for STAMPlorations. First up is one using the Reindeer Games set in combination with the script from the Mixed Media Elements and the hearts from the Balloons and Banners sets ...

I stamped the reindeer, coloured it using Promarkers and gave it a coat of glossy Mod Podge which gave me the resist I needed for the antlers. Once dry, I masked off a circle and sponged with a little Pool Party, stamped the script and little hearts in the same colour and my sentiment in black before adding the embossed heart and layering on kraft base card to finish.

The little heart is cut from thick cardboard from which I removed the top layer. I then embossed it with Frantage and red embossing powders.

I am entering my card at:
Craft Stamper Make It Take It - Text me!, must have text or script in the background
Crafty Calendar - Love is in the Air

Next up is a sparkly cupcake card inspired by the Cupcake Inspirations and Inkspirational challenges ...

I spritzed my base card with gold Artiste Spritzing Ink, die cut a golden doily, stamped and fuzzy cut my cupcakes and added some sparkle to their wrappers using my clear rainbow Sakura gel pen. layered everything up, stamped my sentiment and added a confetti heart to finish. The stamps used are from the Sketched Cupcake set.

Inkspirational - Pop, red heart

Here is the photo I took my inspiration from:
