Pink Poison Spotlight Part 2

Here are the other 3 cards I made for my Pink Poison Spotlight:

For this card made with the Cupcake set, I knew I wanted to use 3 of the cupcakes, but they wouldn't fit on a 1/4 sheet card, so I ended up making this long skinny thing that will fit in a business envelope.

I wanted this card to be really soft and sparkly and girly to go with the Sweet as a Cupcake saying. All the patterned papers are from The Sweet Stack, and even though it does have pre-glittered papers in it, I actually did the glittering on the striped paper with some Stickles. For more glitz, I went over the lines on the tops of all the cupcakes, and also around the edges of the sentiment block with a Stardust glitter pen.

Then to finish it off, I also added some lace, buttons tied with pink embroidery floss, and some satin ribbon.

I *so* adore the Cup of Stuff set! Not only are the mice images too cute, but I love the funky pretty flowers in the other cup!

For the first one, I did a bunch of cutting out and layering of different parts of the mice. Hopefully you can see it in the picture. I even stamped the tiny little mug on a bit of patterned paper from the same collection and popped it up with itty bitty hole punches. I used 2 different Stampin' Up! punches for the saying, which is from the Sentiments set.

On the oval, I sponged ink around the edges, and then felt it was a little harsh, so I rolled the edges in glue and covered it with Angel Dust glitter. I think it softened up the color just a bit and I love the sparkle. I also love these Heidi Grace Jolly and Bright papers!

As a last finishing touch, I decided to add the flower in the corner (what do you think?). It's a couple of silks from the craft store with a white brad for a center.

For the second one, I did a couple extra layers so that the mouse would be popping out of the cup, but I did the dimension a little weird so it's really hard to see in the picture. Once again the XOXO is from the Sentiments set. The patterned paper is Creative Imaginations, the ribbon is May Arts, and the foam letters are Thickers. If the size seems a bit weird, it's because this card will fit in your standard bill envelope.

And that concludes my Pink Poison Spotlight - hope you enjoyed all the cards! I'm hoping to have the new Anyas in my hands soon, so be on the lookout for more Pink Poison!
