Cupcake Fluffles Birthday Card


Good morning! Last night I was playing in my craft room and I combined several challenges to come up with this Cupcake Fluffles Birthday Card. The challenges are:
It's a little sad that I've had this Fluffles stamp by Stampendous! for over a year and I had never inked it up. So, I decided it was time to put it to use. The cupcake liner part of the image was paper pieced with a striped paper. I used white Tulip puffy paint and topped it with fine glitter by Martha Stewart Crafts and then used my heat gun to puff it up. Fluffles was colored with Copic markers and I added some Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details to the brim of his party hat. The patterned papers are from the Color Crush 6 x 6 paper pad by American Crafts. The card stock colors are Whisper White, Primrose Petals, Lucky Limeade, and Blushing Bride all by Stampin' Up!. I decided to use a gray ribbon to match Fluffles and the finishing touch was the Happy Birthday sentiment by Hero Arts. Thanks for stopping by and have a terrific day!

Crafting buddy update: My crafting buddy is continuing to get better and he should be able to come home from the vet today. I will definitely have to get a part-time job to pay for the bill but as long as he is healthy it's worth every dollar spent. Our furry felines are our children. My hubby and I weren't able to have children so our fur babies mean the world to us. It's wonderful the special place animals have in our lives. They just make us smile.

  3. Glad to hear your kitty is getting better! They are so much our fur babies and it is hard when they aren't well. As for your card, I love it! Who knew taking a heat gun to puffy paint made it puff?! I never knew! I always thought it never looked puffy enough! Thanks for playing along with us at Get Inky! You now have a new follower! -Thia

  4. I am so glad to hear your buddy is getting better! That is wonderful news, Andrea :)
    I've had the clear set with this Fluffles for a long time, and have used it so many times that I'm scared to use it any more since it's getting pretty delicate. I just love it - and the puffy paint is my must-do too!
