Cupcakes for Mrs. H.

One of Luke's beloved teachers just had a birthday and we needed a special card.

It was inspired be this card by jaydekay.  It's not as pretty as hers, but it did the trick.  Jaydekay, aka Judy, was named Queen for the Day last Friday.  It was so much fun to browse her gallery.

I should have done a closeup of the cupcakes. I used Shimmer Paint tinted with re-inkers to do the icing.  It gives it a nice shimmery look like real icing.  The white icing looks pretty gray in this picture.  I'm glad it didn't look that way IRL.

All supplies Stampin' Up!

Stamps:  Crazy for Cupcakes, So Happy for You

I'm so glad you stopped in.

Adorable card, Bonnie! I'm sure Luke's teacher will be very pleased to receive it. Does she get a 'real' cupcake to eat, too? LOL

Great way to use that cupcake stamp, Bonnie! I have this one, but have NEVER inked it up. SHame on me.
