Hello Cupcake

This is my post on the 
Dies R Us Inspiration blog today!

Hi There!
Have you seen all the heart and Valentine dies
at the Dies R Us store?
Oh  my goodness it is loaded with them.
Just type the word 'HEART' in the search box and you will be amazed!
Be prepared to want them all, as they are all so pretty and unique!

What I love about hearts, is that they can be used year round.
Weddings, birthdays, show your love to someone, even Christmas cheer!


I made 2 cards for today, just slightly different.
I started with a red card stock for the base,
then added white card stock that I had used 2 different
embossing folders on called Quilted by We R Memory Keepers.

I cut pink hearts using a Spellbinders Heart die,
Next I cut 2 sizes of the Memory Box Open Studio Stitched Square.
One from red and one from pink metallic papers.


I popped both of those up, then added the cutest cupcake using
PoppyStamps Stitched Cupcake dies.
These are the cutest things, they come with 2 sizes,
I used the largest.
Another nice thing about these dies is that there are 2 choices for the
cupcake tops and they cut separate...love that!


I topped each cupcake with a glittered heart
which I cut from Impression Obsession Heart Stems.

I finished with pretty bows with ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
