Celebrate

Playing with my Paper Smooches stamps today for the November Guest Designer search (last minute entry - closes later today).  I realize, looking at this now, I don't really know what kind of cupcake is green - hee, hee.  Mint maybe.  ETA - Emily suggested key lime pie - definitely a better choice than mint.  Yum!  Oh well, creative license and all that. I think our creations would be much less interesting if we stuck to true life colour!  To get the candle 'sunk' in, I first stamped the candle right on top of the cupcake but masked over the bottom.  The bottom of the candle is paper pieced and then slid into a slit on the cupcake.  Doing it this way kept me from having to cut out around the candle wick.


This also works for a couple of Splitcoast Stampers challenges - Clean and Simple #140 (Cupcake) and Hope You Can Cling To #8 (hanging element).  If you don't know about the Hope You Can Cling To challenges/breast cancer card drive, check out all the details here.  You can win prizes and if you play along with all 34 challenges, you can win BIG prizes.  I got all 34 done last year (and did win a prize!).  Life is a bit busy right now so I won't be doing them all this year but you should check it out!

Happy Wednesday!  Hope you are having a great week.  Thanks for stopping by.

  7. The way you stamped the cupcake and masked the candle is awesome! I love that it's green, although I would have figured you would have made a red velvet cupcake. :) The twine and clothespins are so cute! BTW, I hope the other (pesky work) search is going well....good luck!
