Cupcake Challenge 36

This is my DT card for Cupcake Challenge 36 where Lauren has done a brilliant sketch for us to follow. The DT, as usual, have done a fantastic job so go and check out everyones take on the sketch and join in if you can.

I have used my FF cupcake stamp (which I'm afraid to say is no longer as one of our dogs - Monkey - chewed it...... I wasn't amused!) and I have mounted each image onto a scalloped square cut with a cuttlebug die. All of the cupcakes have been coloured with distress inks and the bottom one has been raised on foam pads for a bit of dimension.

The text stamp is from SU and it has been cut and mounted with my scalloped oval nesties. The papers are from K & Co and the ribbon is american crafts. I have embellished with two pins - these are just standard pins with a plastic ball on the top, but to make the match my card I used embossing powder and heat embossed them.

Card/Paper: White and pink card, K & Co - Sparkly Sweet
Stamps: FF Cupcake and SU - Yummy Set
Colouring: Distress inks - vintage photo, weathered wood, fired brick. Whispers - Royal Blue
Embellishments: American crafts ribbon, pins, embossing powder
Tools: Cuttlebug, scalloped square die, nesties, scalloped scissors, needle, heat gun
Thanks for looking x
