29 again? Cupcake Mouseuse by Maria


Maria Petkash here (IG@mkpetkash) and I am thrilled to be sharing my first card as a Guest Designer for Gerda Steiner Designs.

My card features one of the adorable stamps in the “Cupcake Mice” stamp set.
To create this card, I started with an A2 size card panel cut from 80 LB Neenah Smooth Solar White Classic Crest Cardstock.
I stamped the birthday mouse with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink in the lower right side of the card panel and colored it with Copic Markers and Prismacolor pencils:
Mouse Body:



-W0 markers

Warm Grey 30% (PC1052) and

Warm Grey 20%
(PC1051) pencils

Nose, tail and inner ears: E93, YR82, shaded with Deco Peach (PC1013)
Remaining portions of the images were colored with markers only:
Party Hat: R17, R14, R12, Y19, Y18, Y15
Cupcake Wrapper: R17, R14, R12, R29
Frosting and Cake: BG15, BG13, BG11, YR31, YR30, YR21
Ground: E51, E41, E31

The sentiment was stamped to the left of the hat with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink.

I used the A2 Lacy Layers Die set from Waffle Flower to cut out the cardstock layers.
I adhered the blue and white pieces to a piece of copy paper cut down smaller than the blue
frame and used foam tape to adhere the entire piece to the black cardstock background.

Finally, I added three red clay hearts around the mouse to finish off my card.
Thanks for stopping by!
