For several days I have tried to get this cupcake posted on my blog. The first day ran out of hours. You know what I mean, right? The next day I found out that my camera ran out of battery. Again, you know what I mean, right? Anyway, after a run to the dreaded Wal-Mart, I have a battery, and got the picture taken, and now here is the picture. The picture turned out okay. And, the cupcake turned out okay, too. If I make another there are things I will do different. Of course, as a crafter/cardmaker, the wheels never stop turning to the next idea.
I started by tracing the cupcake bottom onto close to cocoa cardstock from SU. The icing top was traced onto pink pirouette CS from SU. I cut two of each bottom & top. Ran the top through the Cuttlebug with the swirl embossing folder. I sponged the edge and the embossed areas on the icing top with cranberry crisp SU ink. Then, I dabbed glue spots on the swirl ends and sprinkled dazzling diamonds from SU on it. The ribbon is pink pirouette attached to two punch outs, with a sticker on the front that says "be mine." The cherry is traced and cut out on cranberry crisp CS. Both cupcakes were put together and laid aside. I then used the bottom of a box tutorial that I got off of SCS. Not even sure which tutorial I used. I then attached the cupcake sides to the box. I thought it would be cute for a little girl to put Valentines in. My niece would love it. The 3 x 3 cards with envelopes fit in this. I wanted to get this on here to show it off. Almost forgot to mention that I used the Classic Stripes stamp on the bottom cup of the cupcake.
This talk of cupcakes makes me want to have one. Too bad I need to lay off this fattening stuff and eat more protein and fruits & veggies. That is one of the hardest things for me to do. I love sweets. I’m getting off this subject.
I just want to thank you for stopping by, and I hope you do so often. Enjoy this wonderful weekend. Here in the Southern portion of Ohio, we are going to have a heat wave over the next few days. We need to get thawed out from all the ice and snow over the past two weeks. So, until next time, Happy Stamping!
