Rooco Birthday Cupcake

roococupcake

Blogger friends, meet Rooco.  That’s ROOO-CO, not Rocco, as you might expect.  I met him (and fell in love with him) at CHA.  He’s the newest cutey from Stampendous, joining their other cuties such as Chagito, Chicks and Fluffles.  This is Rooco Reach and he is intended to hold things above his head, including this pumpkin for Halloween. 

For today’s card I paired him with a cupcake from the Unity set, Mix Up of Cuteness.  It was the perfect size and for this big birthday wish, he needed a good cupcake. 

The strip of paper along the bottom is from the new, awesome glittery paper Make A Wish.  It’s already got the glitter and glaze on the paper so you get the effect without the mess!  And this paper is really versatile because you can cut it apart and get lots of cards from one sheet.  It’s double-sided too, just in case you don’t want to use the glittery side.  (WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO DO THAT?!!)

I colored Rooco and the cupcake with my Prismacolor pencils and then applied some new Rock Candy Distress Stickles.  OH MY GOSH…I LOVE THESE.  They are perfect for cakes, candies, etc…anything that you want to look like it has a sugar coating on.  It’s got a little shimmer from the Stickles but since they’re part of the Distress line the main effect is that it makes it look like you’ve applied granulated sugar to your card (except without any of the mess or stickiness!)  AMAZING.  You’ll see more of these from me.

I used my Rectangle Nesties and some yellow shimmer ribbon to finish off this non-standard tent card.

Thanks for stopping by today!
