Cupcakes Galore!

Good morning! Michele here with TWO cards using the adorably cute new set by Whimsy Stamps called, Calories Schmalories! I just can not get enough of this set!
This first card was water colored.  The main image as well as the background panel.  I wanted it to have a sort of pop art feel, so I made sure the white areas remained really white.
I added Stickles to the darker pink areas for a bit of sparkle and shimmer.

I just couldn't resist adding a teeny flower from the Build a Garden die set. I cut the flower and leaves from water color paper and water colored it.  I adhered it to the cupcake with a little sweet string bow underneath it. 
I wanted the cupcake to stand out against my colorful background, so I cut a circle using the Pierced and Stitched Circle Dies. I added a shadow under the cupcake using a Copic marker.  I stamped the sentiment directly on the circle.  I used the Birthday die cut and adhered it directly to the background.  I added a scattering of gems to finish the card off.   

For my next card I wanted to stack the cupcakes to create a tower.  I masked off each layer and stamped the cupcakes with Black Memento ink.  While the masks were still in place I used Distress Ink in Spun Sugar to give it a soft color behind the cupcakes.  I colored the image using Copic markers. 
I stamped the sentiment using Versamark ink and embossed it in white. For the "table" that the cupcakes sit on, I used the new Curly Q Background Stamp. I used a Copic marker to add shadows. 
For my finishing touches, I added gems, Stickles to the frosting, and glossy accents to the straw.
Thank you so much for stopping by today!
Have a great day!
