WootWoot!! It's Saturday and that means our Cupcake Blog Hop has begun!!! Now if you came here from Simply-Pam's then you are in the right spot, but if not go here and start at the beginning with Janis. (Didn't Pam just knock you over with her creations?!!) For this awesome hop we are bring you 'cupcake' themed items. We were told it could be anything. Meaning it didn't even have to be paper based!! Well, all of mine are paper based! LOL What I want to show you first is the little invitations that I made. Had the Grands in mind when I made these. This is what I started with:
Peachy Keen Stamps I cut the icing from core-dinations-Flower Power. It cuts sooooo good on the Cricut!!! I then used some Rock Candy Distress Stickles on the icing to give it a little shine. On the back I used a stamp that is just lines and then wrote the invite on it. I hunted an invitation stamp at HL, but they didn't have one that would fit. :( But I still think they turned out pretty cute!!
My next project is a gift bag and tag. I bought a package of pastel color gift bags at HL on 1/2 off. I picked the pink on to use. Guess 'cus I always think of cupcakes as being female! I don't know why! (Insert shoulder shrugs here) I just do!! I measured the front of the bag. Mine is 8 by a little over 10. I cut my cupcake paper to fit and glued it down. Took my Once Upon A Princess again and did this cupcake with 'cupcake' on the top!! Sooooo cute!! I designed her on my Gyspy Girl so I could get her the right size. I used George and did a rectangle at 8x10 and then enlarged the cupcake until I liked the fit. On your Cricut you can cut her at 8 inches and she should fit perfectly!! I did all of the layers for her. I just love her smile. I used Diamond Stickles on the icing and the inside of her eyelashes and smile. Then I did some faux stitching. Next, I cut a gift tag from OUAP also. I cut it and it's layer at 2 3/4 inches. I cut 2 of the bigger piece to
to make it more thickness. The little cupcake is cut at 1 1/4 along with it's layers.I used the Wide Eyed Kids Face Assortment from Peachy Keen Stamps on this little cupcake. I also stickled the icing.. Then I used some Sorbet twine from The Twinery for the tie. Perfect for a little girl! Well, maybe even a big one!!! LOL
For my last project, I made a card. Now, ya'll must know that I just had to make a card, too!!! The cupcake cut for this one if from Smiley Cards. I know that this is a cart that was a download for just Gypsy owners, cut I just had to use it. I sooooo love the big fluffy icing!! My most favorite part of a cupcake!!! But you could use any cupcake from all the different ones on different carts out there. I cut mine at 3 3/4 inches for this A2 (4 1/4x5 1/2) card. The icing paper is the back side of some Christmas paper I had in my scrap stash. Love the swirl it has in it. I used Peach Keen Stamps Princess Face Assortment for this face. Used Glossy Accents on the icing to give it some shine. I then popped her up on the card. The sentiment is from My Pink Stamper Simply Sweet Occasions and the inside if is from Family and Friends. The outside sentiment I stamped and then cut with a one inch circle punch. Punched several and stacked them instead of popping it up. The cupcake wrapper is after the fact. The fact that I ate the cupcake!!! HaaaaHaaaa!!!!
Here'sssss my card!!
