New Release Friday!

Hello Friends! It's Friday and that means that there are new digital stamps at MelJen's Designs! These stamps are soooo cute, I can't wait another moment to share them with you...just LOOK AT THESE!!

ANIMAL CUPCAKES!! What could be sweeter? NOTHING!...I know!!  Three adorable little faces, each one has a wee cherry stuck in the frosting, complete with a leaf! These little cuties bring a big smile to my face. As much as I wanted to have a card for each cupcake, I just didn't have time. There is so much going on for me right now, I'm beginning to feel a little overwhelmed. So, I decided to just take a few steps back and create one card. I chose to work with the Teddy Bear Cupcake...

I printed out and colored all of the cupcakes, and I tell you, they are soooo fun to color! I really enjoy bringing these images to life. I used the 'flicking' coloring technique with my Copics to create the bear's fur. I added Crystal Effects to the cherry, the heart and his eyes. I've had that product for years and never used it, now it seems I can't get enough of it! It's a pretty simple card...I made a rosette for the mat behind the focal image and adhered that with foam tape. I embossed the greeting and added some chocolate pearls. I tied on a bit of baker's twine and my card was finished! I hope to find time over the weekend to make cards for the other two cupcakes.

Please visit the Design Team blog to see the projects the other members have for you. There are some really cute samples over there!
