The card base is Peach Parfait card stock. I matted a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock on a piece of Pear Pizzazz In Color Patterns DSP and adhered it to the card front. The gift bag image from Birthday Bakery stamp set, a level 1 hostess set, was stamped in StazOn ink on Watercolor Paper. I used my Blender Pens and Melon Mambo, Peach Parfait and Pear Pizzazz ink pads to color in the gift bag. I sponged around the edge with Peach Parfait. It was punched out with the Large Tag Punch. I punched out a piece of Melon Mambo card stock with the Extra Large Tag Punch, sponged around the edges with Melon Mambo ink and adhered the image to it. Unfortunately, after I sponged the tag, it made it look much darker in the picture compared to the Melon Mambo mat on the cupcake. A Pear Pizzazz brad from the Glimmer In Color Brads was added for a little dazzle. On Very Vanilla card stock, I stamped the cupcake from the Itty Bitty Bits stamp set using the three colors, punched them out with the 1/2" Circle punch and matted them on circles cut with the 3/4" Circle punch. I popped up the image and the cupcakes with Stampin' Dimensionals and adhered them to the card front. For a little extra dimension, I added Crystal Effects to the heart on the bag and the frosting of the cupcakes. The sentiment from the gift bag stamp was inked with a Basic Black Marker and stamped on the bottom of the card. It feels good to get the creative juices going again.
