You're As Sweet As A Cupcake

Aren't you?    




Of course you are!

Whenever your birthday may be!
Cupcakes are sweet, and so was the time I spent making this card!  I really love what can be done with Make The Cut (MTC)!  For the card base I used a background paper from the Lettering Delights Love Is Sweet set.  I scaled down the paper to fit the card size (I forget exactly what size it is LOL!)and then printed it directly from MTC.  Then I scanned in a stamp from the dollar bin at Michael's.  A simple, cute, but very small cupcake.  Once I got it into my computer I brought it into Adobe PSE 7, resized it and saved it as a PNG file.  I then opened up MTC and traced the image.  I created a few shadow layers of the cupcake, and even a layer for the "icing".  I printed out the stamp image from MTC at the size I wanted and then cut around it.  I also cut out the other shadow layers and stuck them together using foam tape.  I printed out the sentiment from MTC as well, using the Lettering Delights Buttercream font(my current favorite font!).  Isn't it amazing?  From a little stamp I now have a much larger one, as well as a die cut if I wanted it!!  Thank you MTC!  Talk about adding versatility to the things you already have.  Now the stamp idea is not mine, I believe I got the idea from CleverSomeday's blog where she tells you how to make mats for your stamps using MTC.  I just thought wouldn't it be neat to just print out the stamp so it could be any size, and to my amazement it worked!  Hope you like this idea.  I can't wait to try it out with other images as well.  No cartridge necessary!   Let me know what ya think!  Thanks for stopping by!
