Meet Carl the Cupcake - New Release from Stamps and Smiles

This week I, along with the Stamps and Smiles Design team, will be introducing 5 new stamps sets from Stamps and Smiles. All week long you will see samples using the new sets. We have a full week of challenges, giveaways and our first Blog Hop, which will start Friday, May 8th at 9 pm central. The new releases will be available after the Blog Hop.

Today I would like to introduce you to Carl the Cupcake. This set of stamps is 3 x 4 inches, a total of 6 stamps. Over on the Stamps and Smiles blog, they are hosting a sketch challenge. Be sure to check it out and play along for a chance to win free stamps.

So here is my card using the new set for today. I began by stamping Carl on Cryogen white paper with Memento Tuxedo black ink. Isn't he just the cutest? Of course, I colored him with my Copic markers.
Jeans - BG93
Shirt - B91, B95
Face - E00, R20
Shoes - E33
Icing - G20 and then I painted on Shimmerz for some sparkle

I cut Carl and the balloons out, popping them up on the card. I embossed the blue and darker green balloons with my Cuttlebug folders before mounting them. Finished size is 4.25 x 5.5 inches.

Please take a moment to visit the other members of the Design Team to see what they have created with this stamp set.
