Crazy for Cupcakes and Chalked Taffeta Ribbon Technique

Hello! Yes, I haven't been blogging much lately. My boys' schedules are killing me! One in track, one in baseball, and one in T Ball. Ouch!
Well ... enough whining ... on to the card. This is a project for this evening's workshop. The cupcakes are embossed (DON'T forget your embossing buddy!) and then colored with markers. The ribbon is white taffeta in disguise! I wanted pink ribbon, so I chalked up my sponge dauber and rubbed it on the white taffeta, flipped it over and repeated. Isn't that beautiful??? The color scheme was a no brainer, thanks to the Candy Lane DSP. Not having to come up with a color scheme is a real time-saver for me!

Supplies: Crazy for Cupcakes, Embossing Buddy, Black Embossing Powder, Powder Pals trays, Versamark, Heat Tool, White Taffeta Ribbon, Mini Glue Dots, Eyelet Border Punch, Candy Lane DSP, Riding Hood Red, Whisper White, Pink Pirouette cardstocks.

Thanks for stopping by the Stamping Station. I'd love to hear from you!
