Hiya friends! Kristina here to share some digital goodness with you! This month's trio of projects features the Sketched Cupcake & Cupcake Row digital stamp set. I always try to do a sort of theme and this month I'm calling it "Color Poppin'."

My first project is a bright and fun bookmark.

I printed the image twice in the same size. One image I colored with fluorescent Copic markers and the other I left uncolored.  

I cut the word "read" out of both of them.

I cut the same letters out 4 more times from plain white cardstock. Then I stacked and glued all of the letters together. I rounded the corners of the plain panel and added it to a piece of black cardstock slightly larger. I also round the corners on the black panel. Then I glued the stacked letters in place. I added liquid glue to the bottom of the letters and sprinkled with glitter.

For the finishing touch I punched a hole through both layers and added a bright ribbon!  

For my second project I got to play with my gelli plate!

I grabbed my gelli plate, several acrylic paints, Flair slimline stencil and Bloomdalascopic #7 stencil. I created a couple of different panels because you can't make just one when you play with gelli plates!

I printed the Sketched Cupcake out onto Copic friendly cardstock. I added minimal color to the wrapper with some toner greys. For the frosting I used an embossing pen to add ink and then used White Satin Pearl embossing powder. It added such a lovely shimmer!

I picked my favorite panel and added it to a gray card base. I added foam tape to the back of the cupcake and adhered it to the card. I also used a Happy Birthday sticker from the Just Everyday Greetings sticker pack. Glued on a few sequins and this beauty was finished!

My third project I think is my favorite of this group. Don't tell my other cards!

I printed the Cupcake Row out onto white cardstock. I grabbed the Art Splatters stencil, blending tools and a rainbow of Distress Ink pads. I added the stencil splatters at different heights, flipped it over, shortened the drips and so on to make each splatter look different.

Then I used the same Distress Inks to add splatters. Keeping it mostly over the same area as the stencil splatter. I added black splatters over the entire panel.

I added it to a black panel and then onto a white slimline card base. That's it!
