Sweet Cupcake Card

I have been playing with this new cupcake stamp from Impression Obsession as well as another new die from Hero Arts.  I have found out that they work very well together! 

Here is one version:

I colored the cupcake with Copics and layered it on PART of the Hero Arts die, floral lace.  This is a very pretty die and what is really nice is that you can cut it up and use it in different ways!

In the following card, I layered the cupcake on the entire die cut.


The following are some pictures of how the die can be cut up.  Remember, you can paper piece the die back together using different colors of card stock for a really neat look!

Here you can see the entire die.  This entire die was used in the cream colored card above.
If you snip around the middle doily, you get the center die, which is what I used for the white card above. 

You can always use the outside ring for another project. (You know, use crafts can't throw anything away!) I can see cutting up the outside ring and use each "triangle" to decorate the corners of your card.


And lastly, you can use the die out in two colors and cut them up.  Next layer them back together in different colors for another look.


This should give you ideas about your other dies.  Take a look at them.  Play with them on your work table.  Layer them or layer stamped images on them.  You'll be surprised at what you see!

Have a great day and speak to you soon!
