Eat Cake, it's yummy and good for you.

Well maybe not good for you, but if you use Eat Cake Graphics stamps it can't hurt a bit!

I pulled out my ECG stamps to make a few ATC's and a card this week.

First is this cupcake ATC. There is glitter on both the cakes and the phrase. I LOVE this phrase by the way. If it's too small to read it says, "Cupcakes oh what yum!". How cute is that? The cake is a brand new stamp for Eat Cake Graphics. I decided to have the cake piece spin up to reveal the saying because, honestly, I wanted it on a circle and I wanted the phrase AND ribbon, so I didn't have room on the ATC. So I decided this card had to have a hidden message. I made a stack of them because it's for a swap.
Next is one of my very favorite stamps in my whole collection. This kid is just maxed out! Even the kitty thinks so. Poor guy. I watercolored him with WC pencils, I did the candy wrappers with glittery pens. Then ribbon and decorative brad and it's done.
I have this thing with my stamps. Whenever there is a window I want to do a card where I'm showing something THROUGH the window. This stamp actually has the girl looking at a beautiful sunset. I love that, but wanted to do something different. So I carefully cut out the sunset and then stamped the large flower/fairy scene and put it inside the card. So now the girl is daydreaming this scene instead. I drew the baseboard and floor in for her to stand on something.
Inside view here. LOTS Of glitter added, because it's a magical daydream afterall.

What Fabulous coloring!!!
I love that cupcake! Is it new--I seem to have looked at Eat Cake for a cupcake and had trouble finding one (to go with that fabulous sentiment)!

Any-who-way it is a great cupcake (adding it to my wish list) and a fabulous ATC!
