Remember when cupcake stamps were everywhere?  Never caught on with me, but fast forward, and I see Yana Smakula make this card using the Sweet Friend Cupcake from a newish company called Colorado Craft Company and I fell in love.  It's part of a series of Big & Bold stamp sets, all of which include a very large image. While these images may not be as versatile as smaller images, they are so much fun and pack such a punch!

My version is, of course, inspired by Yana's. Colored with Copics, hand trimmed, and finished it off with Nuvo Crystal Glaze (so far it isn't clogging!) on the strawberry and a sentiment from Pinkfresh Studio.


MOOD WHEN DONE: Excellent! I started my volunteer job yesterday. It's at the Dallas office of the International Rescue Committee, and I'll be writing more about that later. So far, it's great.

Stunning, and that berry looks good enough to eat.

Yum and I think I'd better start baking. ;-) What a statement stamp and the strawberry looks edible! Sandy Alnock posted a card using this same stamp and it's huge!
