Inka Cupcake Sketch

Published by at 12 01 am under Copics,General Purpose Cards,Inkadinkado

I picked up this Birthday Cupcake set by Inkadinkado this past weekend and I love it — if you can believe, it is my FIRST nicely sized cupcake stamp — too funny, I am always the LAST to get with the program and the trends — LOL!!! Anyway, since I’ve been enjoying my new Inka sets and since Jacksonbelle is running a sketch challenge for Inka stamps, I thought I’d do another. Here’s the link to the sketch, which is at Lynda Benden’s Blog — a GREAT blog to browse if you haven’t been there before!!! Filled with beautiful creations.


Fun card to make. I used some old DP that I have always loved (from Michaels), colored my cupcake with Copics, glitzed it up with some new Martha Stewart glitter in a purple shade, pierced my scallop border, used the Martha Stewart Lace punch, added ribbons, a flower and called it done!!! I did not include a sentiment. Although this is a Birthday set, I really could use this card for other purposes, so to be safe, I left off any sentiment. I like options when the cards are just going to be left here for my future use. I’ll adjust it to my needs when the time arises.


Stamps: Birthday Cupcake by Inkadinkado

Paper: PTI White, SU Barely Banana and Basic Gray, DP by Making Memories

Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black, Copics to Color

Accessories: Martha Stewart Lace Punch and Glitter, Glue Pen, May Arts Ribbon, Wal-Mart Flower, Petite Oval Nestabilities by Spellbinders, SU Piercer and Mat Pack, SU Brad, Mounting Tape

That wraps it up for this post — just a quick one. I have a lot of company coming and am starting a window washing project, so, well — you know how that goes!!! Got all my kitchen curtains washed today so I hope to finish the kitchen tomorrow. Hope you are having a good week!!!

    Oh my gosh, how cute is this, a cupcake too pretty to eat, yet making me incredibly hungry! Your design is fabulous Sharon and, like you, I’ve yet to purchase a cupcake stamp, although I love them. Hmmm, wonder if anyone has made a floral cupcake yet?

    You are still ahead of me, no cupcakes here. I love the colors, the lace punch border and how you took a cute image and turned it into a classy card.

  14. Danielle says:

    Sparkly and beautiful Sharon!

  15. Purple never looked so delicious!!! Love that sparkle!

  16. Cindy H. says:

    Great cupcake card!! I also like to leave the sentiment off until the last minute because the card can often be used for different occasions or a new sentiment might be just out on the market and be just perfect for the card and person! TFS

  17. Teresa says:

    Your card is beautiful……I just picked up that same stamp set yesterday. I’m going to see what I can come with…..Thanks for the inspiration.

  18. Sue m says:

    That is too funny! I was gonna buy these stamps too!! I saw them @ Michael’s this past wknd. but, wasn’t sure how often I would use them. Now I wish I had bought them! this looks fabulous!! and your coloring is awesome! TFS!

  19. Shirleyone says:

    If that cupcake was real I certainly wouldn’t eat it. It is too darn pretty to eat and the bow and the flower are just perfect embellishments for it.

  20. Mothermark says:

    Yikes! You do windows? Hee! This is such a good card. I just got a bunch of Martha Steward glitters….have not used it yet but the colors are so gorgeous, I could not resist! This is beautiful Sharon! Have fun with your company!

  21. Robyn says:

    WOW!!! LOVE the card. I so need a class on Copics. I absolutely love them! I have some but I have not been able to creat anything yet that I am just thrilled with. I really need to play some more. So pretty! I just found your blog tonight when I was on yahoo so I will be stalking you now! 😀

    I can not wait to see more of your work and actally get the time to sit down and look through everything else.

    Thanks for putting such a great blog out there.

    Your cupcake sketch is too cute! I love your colors. I also like the idea of making it more versatile by leaving off the sentiment. TFS
