Two days of posting- go me!

I made this card last night for the current Playdate Cafe Challenge. I really love the color combination.  I have been wanting to use my new Hero Arts background stamp so this was a good opportunity.  I also have a few birthdays coming up and thought I should stock pile some cards.

This cupcake set is one of my favorites to use. I colored the bases and 'toppings' with Distress Inks.

If anyone knows of a good video tutorial (or can clearly explain) good ways to tie bows I would really appreciate it.  This is definitely something I struggle with! I've been trying to use my supplies, and I love ribbon, so it would be nice to be able to create beautiful bows. It would also come in handy for gift wrapping.

Supplies Used


  1. I really like that colour combination too and that background stamp is just perfect with the cupcakes.

    For bow tying, I highly recommend Dawn McVey's video. I don't think this link works but you can google it:


  2. OH, WOW! I absolutely love this card! Love the mainly black and white with hints of colors!!!!!

  4. Oh, so yummy! LOVE those sweet cupcakes! Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at The Play Date Cafe!

  5. Those cupcakes are just so yummy looking and your background stamp is a perfect choice for a birthday card.

  6. I love the colours you've used! Those cupcakes are the sweetest!

  7. I also wanted to say but forgot until I looked at your card again just now that your ribbon is lovely and I wish I could tie mine as well as yours ;)

  8. Love this card! I like the way that the cupcakes jump out in front of the B&W text background.
