Cupcake and Storage Ideas

Here is my first card made using the Simple Birthday Thanks that I showed you a couple days ago with the centre cut out. I stamped the top part of the image using Pixe Pink for the cupcake, Real Red for the Cherry and Bravo Burgundy for the stem. I coloured the inside with pastel and a sponge dauber. The sprinkles are chunky glitter and I also added a touch of dazzling diamonds to the cherry. For the bottom I stamped just the bottom of the cupcake, cut it out, flipped it over and ran it though the crimper. It is all attached to a whisper white card with dimensionals. The sentiment is from Crazy for Cupcakes. I also used the sponge dauber and pastel around the outside of the card to soften it. My 6 year old "pink freak" loves it! She was the first to use this stamp and can't get enough. She even made me a card (which is not unusual). She left it on my night stand on New Year's Eve. What a sweetie she can be! I will take a picture today and post it.

Hope your new year is off to a great start. I am off to IKEA today (woohoo!) to get a few things and check out storage and set up ideas for my new studio. I fcame across an awesome blog last night that show all sorts of organizational ideas for stamping and scrapbooking and some amazing craft spaces. Is is called Crafty Storage.
