I used my Slice on *every* Valentine I made over the weekend. Dang, but that thing is wicked fun!

When I first saw this cupcake set by Basic Grey, I had to have it–I love the bold, graphic styling of it!

I was going to use it with my new Sugar Rush paper, but the colors in Lemonade just seemed more suited, so Lemonade it was (I don't have Nook & Pantry . . . yet . . . heh, heh, heh!).  After die cutting the word, I ran it thru my Zyron and then glittered it.  "Friends make life" is my handwriting.

Because I just folded some 6×6 paper in half, the finished design measures 3 x 6" and I found some envelopes that size at Impress.  Perfect!

I haven't gone this color and pattern crazy in a long time–I'm livin' on the edge, baby!  BAH HAHAHAHAAAA!!!

  1. i am cursing myself for not buying that BG cupcake set when i had the chance. at the time i thought “i have enough cupcake stamps”. but now as i’m attempting to make 99 cupcake cards, i realize – NO, no in fact i do NOT have enough cupcake stamps.

  2. What a yummy card! Clever use of the oval punch as a ground for the cupcake…I never thought to use mine that way…love it!

  3. of course, seeing all your cute cards using the slice holiday words and expressions, I need to get it, I had been telling myself I didn’t need it, but how you are here, showing me how much I do…… *sigh* thanks for enabling me…. LOL! your cards are so adorable as usual!! Love the glitter!

  4. I love how you’ve been using your Slice with these super cute cards!

  5. Gorgeous Julie! The glitter is perfect and I love the cupcake! I agree about turning your handwriting into a font (stamp set!)!
