Sweet on You -On a stamped background : )


 Over at The Rogue Redheads blog, there is a challenge for stamped backgrounds.  While they have some cool background stamps, I used individual stamped images (or parts of background stamps) to make my card:

  I wish you could see this card IRL- it is stamped onto Poison Ivy cardstock that is shimmery and beautiful with Rose Red SU cardstock peeking through the center.  Stamp sets used are Snow Hugs and Candy kisses.  The hearts are made by I punching out the shape, then sponging on color through the hole from the punched out heart...... The heart and the sentiment punches are all by SU.
  The card uses a Technique Junkies technique from the latest newsletter- Trapeze card.  I 'layered up' the cupcake (there are three layers) and used Paper Piecing with one of my background pieces for the top of the cake.

Great use of those Rogue Redhead stamps--but that technique looks a little puttsie to me. I admire your tenacity.
