Cute Copic Cookie

First, here's my favorite "pink" from the Paper Temptress Pop Tones pack: Pink Lemonade, mmmm mmmm! I'm showing a comparison of it to Stampin' Up!'s Pretty in Pink. I suspect this softer pink is similar to SU! Pink Pirouette, but I don't have any to say for sure... I'm using it in today's sample, but I didn't originally intend to...you'll see! :) (we'll see who can wait, and who skips ahead! LOL!)

I started today's card by stamping my sandwich cookie from "Have a Cookie" in Memento Tuxedo Black on Gina K Pure Luxury 80 lb CS. I wanted to use a deep rich brown to match the Hot Fudge paper (see this post) and Copic E49 Dark Bark was just what I needed. I went just around the top left and right and sides of the cookie, these will be my darkest areas.

Next I used Dark Brown for the cookie front and top(color this larger area on top in small circles to keep from getting stroke marks), they blend so easily together. Then I added little dots of the Dark Bark again into each of the little scalloped sections around the rim at the bottom of the top and bottom wafer, makes them looks more rounded (click for closeup) Tip: I accidentally ran into the "filling" in a few places, but dark colors like these blend out surprisingly well when you apply the Colorless Blender Copic over them, so always apply that before scrapping it! If it's still not coming out, try your white opaque Inkssentials pen over the boo-boo. :)

Next I need to add my sentiment. I centered my round acrylic block on top of my image and lined up "You are one CUTE cookie" around it. Doing it this way it you will never have a problem with it being spaced the way you want! :)

I didn't get a pic of it, but I added my little crumbs stamp from the set to the lower right corner, filled in with brown and shadowed the crumbs and the cookie bottom with W-1, you can see it a bit through the block.


Now originally I was going to just keep this card "milk and cookies" brown and white, but since pink and chocolate are my favorite, and I was talking about a CUTE cookie, I decided to make it even cuter!

I added a little pink heart shaped brad to the top of my cookie, centering it in the little flourish on top, and made a "pink" cream filling with Copic R20(I really think Oreos should come this way, don't you?). I made a scalloped 4 inch card with my Nestabilitie from the Pink Lemonade CS. Brown mat is the Hot Fudge, and ribbon, although a perfect match for the pink CS, is from an unidentified source, I'm sorry LOL! It was wrapped around a bath item I got (you save that stuff, too, right?)

The finished card is so girly and sweet enough to eat (this would be a fun and easy card to send out to my "homegirls" for Valenitne's day!), excuse me while I go indulge in a little something myself, this post made me super snacky (and thirsty for some Pink Lemonade)!!

I would TOTALLY eat a pink stuffed oreo! They make green or orange ones, they should make PINK too! Maybe we can start a petition, LOL! This card would be so fun to bulk creat, and i know a ton of cookie loving ladies that would appreciate it.

Oh, I really like this cookie! Do I save this stuff?! Have you ever taken the ribbon or twisted handles off gift bags past their prime? How about hang tag ribbons from new clothes? The spare buttons that come with new apparel? My scavenging list goes on and on.LOL!!! Thanks for the adorable card!
