I might be taking the love theme a little too far but who wouldn't love 13 cupcakes?...........

The stamp set is called Crazy for Cupcakes and it is a wonderful set. I have stamped the original image 3 times, once for the main card and then again so I could colour them and cut out lots more individual cupcakes.  The original image only has 6 cupcakes on it and I like lots more on my plate so in total I cut out 7 additional cupcakes, 3 I have layered on top of the original image and 1 for the front, the last 3 are on the inside of the card.

I have coloured the cupcakes using my blender pens and Pretty in Pink, Real Red, Close to Cocoa and Bashful Blue for the stand.  I have purposely not coloured all of the image, If you enlarge it my clicking on the photo you will see white space, that's not bits I've missed it's so that it gives the look of watercolouring.

This is the inside of the card, I have started adding an extra layer inside some of my cards if I am putting a sentiment inside.  I love the little layer of cupcakes at the bottom.

Happy Stampin'
