If you are coming from WENDY'S Blog, you are on the right track! 

      I used Close to My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge and one of the stamp sets that are included in the Collection set.  I cut out 2 cupcakes out of our card stock 1 colonial white and 1 coco at 2 3/4 then I did the oval5 pattern with smokey plum at 4 1/2 then I did 2 scallops at 2 3/4 with Sonoma B/T then finally I cut out the letters at 1 1/2 using colonial white.  With the 2 cupcakes that I cut out I stamped the frosting with smokey plum and then used liquid glass and sprinkled with prisma glitter and set aside to dry then with the coco cupcake I cut off the frosting and stamped the bottom of the cupcake liner with vanilla cream ink pad once the colonial white cupcake was dry I placed the coco liner on the bottom to make it look like a cupcake liner.  I also used Colonial white ribbon and Opaques Pearl Adhesive gems I also distressed all around the card with smokey plum.
