Frosted Cupcake

Today's color challenge from SCS (CC345) is "Blushing Rose Limeade" - meaning colors Blushing Bride, Regal Rose, Lucky Limeade.  I used Pink Pirouette, Regal Rose and Kiwi Kiss as these are the closest colors I had to the challenge colors.  I love this combination of colors - so bright and cheerful.
I couldn't decide which image from the Easy Events stamp set I wanted to use for this challenge (they are both so adorable!), so I did two cards the same, just changing up the stamp.  The first one also qualifies for yesterday's SCS Clean & Simple Challenge (CAS140) - "Cupcakes!".  Both cards are made with only SU! products.  Hope you like.

"Frosted Cupcake"

"Sorry I'm Late!"

Stamps:  Easy Events (SU!)
Paper:  Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White (SU!)
Ink:  Regal Rose, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  water mister, toothbrush, clear glitter glue, corner rounder, and adhesives

The two cards are done exactly the same, except for the cupcake card having glitter glue added to the frosting and rounding the corners.

I created some interest on the Kiwi Kiss cardstock by loading a toothbrush with Whisper White ink and water and pulling my thumb across the bristles to make a white paint splatter on the Kiwi Kiss.  I let it dry before continuing.

I stamped the main image in Regal Rose ink onto a large piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the image again onto my paint splattered Kiwi Kiss cardstock.  I cut out the cupcake paper and adhered it on top of my main stamped image.  I used Pink Pirouette Stampin' Write marker to color in the frosting of the cupcake.  I added clear glitter glue on the frosting to make it sparkle.

I rounded the bottom corners of the card front on the cupcake card and also the bottom corners of the card base of Kiwi Kiss.

I mounted the front panel onto the card base.
