Seize The Cupcake

Wow these look good enough to eat!  I just love all the sweet details of this darling card.  This was a cupcake challenge by Cupcake Inspirations created by Shannon White.  I discovered this sweet card on the Enchanted Ladybug Creations blog.  I recommend visiting Shannon’s blog. You will truly be inspired.

Seize The Cupcake

I love the soft colors that were used along with the different patterns of each cupcake.  This card really draws your eyes right to those cupcakes.

Shannon started by stamping Build a Treat Cupcakes with Memento Tuxedo Black.  She did a small amount of paper piecing and added a touch of shading with her Copics.  Using Build a Treat Tops & Bottoms Dies, she then cut them out and popped them up with foam tape.  The background layers and mats were created with Choice Butter Cream Cardstock, Lavender Cardstock, Seafoam & Chartreuse cardstock, and Echo Park’s Everyday Eclectic 6 x 6 paper pad.

To finish it up, she added a touch of distressing with Frost White ink, and stamped a fun sentiment from Build A Treat with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The last step was to add a cute little flower created with Flower Box Sprigs & Flowers Dies, adding a little bling, and a polka dot ribbon.

Now while you still have all of your supplies out take it one step further and make some birthday tags for the gifts!

Creativity involves in breaking out your traditional style.  Take a look at your project in a different way, and never hesitate to try something new.
