  5. Cut two 4″ x 4″ squares from the white cardstock. Ink your cupcake stamp with the black Staz On ink and stamp your image on to each 4″ square.
  6. Using the fuchsia colored marker, color in the thick stripes on the bottom of the cupcake. Using the yellow colored marker, color in the thin stripes on the bottom of the cupcake. Carefully cut out your image with scissors. Glue the candles from step 4 to the top of the cupcake. Let dry.

  1. This is so pretty! I love the colors and that cupcake stamp is so cute!!! Love your coloring and the use of the candle dies! I also like how you heat set the fine glitter on the cupcake! That’s a nice tip along with using the marker to ink the stamp and blowing moist air before stamping! I agree with Beth! The work done on this card shows through and makes for a very special birthday card! And your tutorials are awesome! ~Vanessa

    • Thanks Vanessa for your wonderful comments!!! I’m glad you liked the card. I learned the trick with the glitter from the owner of a stamp shop. Surprisingly, it came out beautiful on my first try 🙂 Hope you’re having a fantastic weekend!!! ~Sophia
