HSS Inspiration Challenge #99 CUPCAKES

Good Morning Stampers!!! I hope everyone had a FANTASTIC Christmas full of love and memories.  We had family and fun over the holiday- it was great!  So today I have a project that I made for this weeks HSS Challenge #99– It’s an inspiration challenge and we were inspired with cupcakes.  I took this inspiration literally… take a peek!

Head on over to Hand Stamped Sentiments to take a peek at all the other amazing Design Team creations-
I used my 2-3/8″ scallop circle punch and my small scallop circle punch for the cupcake top.  I of course had to embellish with some GLITTER!!!  Nothing is finished without a little SPARKLE!!! I used the retired fine Cosmo glitter that they no longer offer, but I can’t bear to give it away- or stop using it for that matter!

I used the petal cone die for my cupcake base, then I cut the cone part off the bottom and also crimped it with my crimper.  That was my VERY FIRST tool that I purchased when I dove into the stamping world!  I love that thing, it’s an oldie but goodie.

I busted out my brand new scallop edge die and embossing folder from the NEW occasions mini that will be available for you to see in just a few weeks!  I thought that since I was really going hard with the scallop theme I would finish it off with a bit of scalloped Polk-a-dotted ribbon around the cupcake.  I loved this card SO much, and it was SO easy to make that I decided to use these as my daughters birthday invites next month.  I will change up the colors to be more GIRLY GLAM, but they will be a hit!  She is having her FIRST Stampin’ Up! party.  It is going to be a blast.
I hope you enjoyed today’s project and I hope you have a safe and FUN New Year!!!

  2. Erin, you’re so inventive!! Love your double layered cupcake, never would’ve thought of doing that with the scallop circle, nice! The glitter is of course an awesome touch and I agree, the crimper is an oldie but goodie…I bust mine out every now and again.
