Crazy for cupcakes and sweet and sour DSP


I had a chance to play along with Stamping 411 sketch this week.  My inspiration was this great new designer paper from Stampin Up called sweet and sour speciality.  It is tough to see but it is embossed around the circles.  I also learned from Angela McKay aka Northshorestamper.com, about matting when your image is bigger than your punches.  Just cut 2 of punched pieces in half- (1) long way and (2) short way.  Use those four pieces to matt behind your punched image.

stamps: wordplay and crazy for cupcakes
ink: pumpkin pie, rose red, regal rose, pretty in pink
cs: sweet and sour speciality dsp, very vanilla, rose red, stazon black
access: scallop oval extra large, scallop edge border punch, oval extra larger
