If you haven't tried digital stamps - WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR!!! (sorry was that too loud?)- I love how versatile they are. If you are new to digi stamps and would like some tips on how to use them visit The Frugal Crafters blog . She has a yahoo group called Whats digital stamping that will supply lots of help.
I created this cupcake card from a cupcake digi image from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff and it was a really quick card to put together. I downloaded the image and then made the image in several nested sizes in photoshop then printed them out on the wrong side of a few different patterned papers. Then it was just a matter of fitting them together in an order that I liked. I don't think it is apparent in the picture but I ran the cupcake paper layers through my crimper for a realistic effect. It looks and feels really cool in person.
I used a brad and eyelet to make the upper layer of the cupcake flip up to reveal the sentiment. I used the same cupcake image in a 0.6 inch size to make the cute little cupcake inside. See what I mean by versatile?
Lindsay has some new images that are just beautiful so blop on over and check them out. Also, take a look at what the other design team members have done they have some super samples.
Thanks for stopping by!
