Outlines Rubber Stamps

Hello!  Happy New Year!

I'm so excited about today's post.  It's my first as a member of the Outlines Rubber Stamp Company Design Team!  When I was just beginning to do freelance design work several years ago, my first opportunity in the industry was with Outlines Rubber Stamps.  I feel like I've come full circle (in the most wonderful way)!  ;-)

The Design Team will have weekly projects to share with you all with a set theme.  The theme for our first week is anything goes!


This card is all about the Sketchy Cupcake image (H-1016).  It's an absolutely wonderful cupcake, isn't it?  I placed a bit of cellophane tape over the sentiment to only ink the image for the focal point of the card.  I inked the sentiment separately for the flag on the side.  I did a second card, which I'll be giving my daughter for her birthday in a couple weeks without the ribbon and in pinks.

After coloring the image, I coated the frosted part of the cupcake with vintage glass glitter for the ultimate sugar-coating!

I'd love it if you stopped by to visit all the Outlines Rubber Stamps design team members:
