Crazy Cupcakes Card

I've been enjoying playing with my new goodies!! For this card, I paired a set that came out last year, Crazy For Cupcakes, with a new set- The More the Merrier! I saw so many possibilities for The More the Merrier set... It is a level 3 Hostess set and has stamps in there for every occasion! Here is my crazy cupcake card:



Goodies:
All products by Stampin' Up!

Stamps: The More the Merrier set; Crazy For Cupcakes set
Ink: Jet Black StazOn; Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Bermuda Bay, Certainly Celery, Ruby Red, Soft Suede classic inks
Paper: Soft Suede, Confetti White, Pumpkin Pie, Certainly Celery, Ruby Red, So Saffron, Bermuda Bay cardstock; Certainly Celery textured cardstock
Accessories: Aqua Painter, Dazzling Diamonds, White Signo Gel pen, So Saffron 1/25" Striped grosgrain ribbon, Scallop Edge punch, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Dimensionals

I stamped my background with the new cupcakes stamp from the More the Merrier set. I watercolored them with all the fun colors and added it to my Soft Suede card base. Next I paper pieced the larger cupcakes from Crazy for Cupcakes and sponged around them in the ink of the same colors. I added sprinkles with the Signo and then colored over some of them in colored ink. I added the cardstock strip across the bottom and the ribbon, adhered the cupcakes and added a sentiment. I love the bright colors and the look of the watercoloring!

Thanks for looking today!!
