Sweet Shoppe: A Very Sweet Set of Cards by Anni
Hey stampers, Anni here! Today I have a set of three cards for you. All three were made using the set Sweet Shoppe (there are also coordinating dies available).
I started by coloring three watercolor pieces in various color schemes. I used Ken Oliver's Color Burst. For every card I used three colors.
After drying I stamped the cupcakes on these pieces. I chose the parts of the paper that looked the most like icing! I stamped the cupcakes on white paper and colored the lower part with Copics. After that I fussy cut all the images.
I die cut some squares from white cardstock and created three matching backgrounds by inkblending and spritzing some water droplets on the paper. Than I stamped the sentiments in Versafine black ink, the best ink for sentiments and detailed images.
For every color combo I chose a matching patterned paper and assembled the cards.
To make the toppings of the cupcakes look more realistic I added some Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents.
If you choose the same design for all your cards, it is easy to make a few cards at the same time.
Thanks for stopping by and have a sunny week.
