More Pink Persimmon...Possibilities

So, as promised, here's another version of a fun birthday card with the clear stamp set called Vintage Cupcake by Pink Persimmon.  This one is geared for the guys.

Obviously, I couldn't resist more paper piecing, but this time I used My Mind's Eye Fine and Dandy-True Blue 6x6 paper pad.  I love the muted vibrancy of the color palette, and complemented it with cardstock by Bazzill in Apricot and SU in Crushed Curry.  I used Copic markers on the clown itself and for a little shadowing of the cupcake as well.  A swath of jute twine and a Tim Holtz tiny safety pin ties up the tiny tag stamped with just the inside of a pennant stamp image from the set.  Of course, there's a good dusting of glitter and some edging with Tea Dye Distress Ink.

I hope you grab that stamp set you tucked away on your shelf {or go buy a new set at Paper Made Bakery!} and create a variety of projects -- prove to yourself that set has awesome possibilities!
Pin It!
