{The Cat's Pajamas TCP Tuesday} One Cupcake

TCP Tuesday for September is in full swing. Remember that even though it is a monthly challenge, you can enter as many times as you want. This month's challenge is to use paper piecing on your project.

I love paper piecing especially when it is mixed in with Copic coloring. It can add such a nice touch to a card. I shared today's project at the new release Pajama party over on Splitcoaststampers so I thought it was about time to make an appearance here at Creative Palette.

Using the new One Cupcake stamp set, I paper pieced the cupcake holder portion and then colored the rest of the image with Copic markers. Afterwards I fussy cut it out and attached to the card with a bit of glue and pop dots behind those big floppy ears. I created the border by using one of the dies from the Toppers CutUps cutting twice from two colors of cardstock and then stamping the sentiment onto it. LOVE the new Bitty Banners CutUps so I couldn't resist using them to add to the festive birthday look. Lastly, I added a bit of bling on the banner and border. The patterned papers came from my old My Mind's Eye Lime Twist pads and also from the Doodlebug Boys Only pad.

Copics: Bunny-W00, E81, E50, E51 E53; Cupcake-W00, E81, YR12, YR18
