More The Cat's Pajamas goodness

Once I had these cute The Cat's Pajamas stamps in my hand, I guess I just couldn't stop creating! These things are so cute and you know what is almost the cutest part are the adorable sayings with each set!!!
I did the above card to go with the CPS sketch for this week. I had already created one but I could see this little rocket ship fitting the sketch so perfectly.
It was fun to use star accents on the side piece and the rocket is colored with Copic Markers. There are tiny drops of Aleene's Paper Glaze on the bigger hearts and on the heart on the rocket ship. Just adds for some fun dimension and makes the red more intense.
I have to laugh at the above card because those papers are actually from a Christmas collection but don't they just look like a party ready to happen?
The dog and the greeting are both stamped on the White Cryogen Curious Iridescent paper by and both are embossed with clear embossing powder. With all of the black on the doggie, this just makes that black more intense. Can you see the slight shading around the one side of the dog with the Copic Markers. Since the Copic Markers work with a blender pen, it is easy to get a subtle look like this. The cake is also colored with the Copic Markers and the little heart on the top has a tiny dot of the Aleene's Paper Glaze again. That just gives the heart a little added emphasis that is fun.
For this last card, who doesn't love cupcakes and so I just had to use them. I used two sizes of a Nestabilities label die by Spellbinders. That is just an easy way to create a fun accent and it helped to give a great emphasis to these tiny cupcakes.
The frosting on the cakes is filled in with Diamond Glitter 3-D Fashion paint by Tulip and the papers on the cupcakes and the top accents are both filled in with Aleene's Paper Glaze . These both just add some extra fun to the look. For the labels I did use the cutting step and then the embossing step and a tiny bit of added color was sprayed on with the Memories Mists spray.
A couple added accents would be that I embossed the front of the card with a Cuttlebug embossing plate. I used Core'dinations cardstock for the card and so I tore the one edge because that is one of the qualities about this paper that is so nice. And since the front of the card was shorter then the back of the card, I glued a thin strip of the patterned paper to the back edge so that when the card is closed that patterned edge is exposed.

Your work is really good in this particular post and i like the way you used the cupcakes and fill with the aleene's paper glaze. Which is really nice.
