Create a Cupcake at Freshly Made Sketches

Mmmm fancy a cupcake?  I do!  

Cupcakes don't seem to be going out of fashion and this is a super set for creating them.  Don't let it slip through your fingers though as it's only around until the end of the month!

Create a Cupcake is a stamp set with 12 stamps and don't think it's just for cupcakes.  Check out some of my earlier posts for examples.  Another thing, there's a Cupcake Builder Punch to go with it.  Being able to stamp and punch makes life so easy, don't you think?

I've used a Baja Breeze card base.  I created a background on Whisper White using the sprinkles stamp.   I stamped it in Rose Red but stamped off first.  I like the speckled effect.  This was matted onto Elegant Eggplant.

I punched a scallop circle using 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch.  (Another item from the Spring Mini Catalogue)  I pierced each scallop with my Paper Piercing Tool and Mat Pack.  I then punched a circle of Baja Breeze using 1 3/4" Circle Punch.  

My cupcake base is stamped in Elegant Eggplant.  I punched it out using the Cupcake Builder Punch and also the frosting in Whisper White, then stamped the little heart in Rose Red.

The bottom panel has a strip of Rose Red Satin Ribbon with the sentiment stamped in Rose Red and punched out with the Modern Label Punch.  This was attached with a couple of Dimensionals.

I've followed the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches -

but flipped it. 

Hope you've had a great day.  Off to have a cuppa!  Thanks for coming past. x
