Sweet Treats Sugar and Spice Crafty Challenge #6

It's time for another Sugar and Spice Crafty Challenge. Challenge #6 is called Sweet Treats  and we were to use cupcakes or any sweet treats. My first card I used scraps left over from my last album I completed.  It was made with some of my favourite colors.

I used my cupcake stamp, then fussy cut it out. I wasn't pleased with the results so I ended up using 2 different stamps (one for the bottom & another for top).  Pieced them together and just applied pink stickles to the icing. By layering a mft border die cut on top and bottom I feel it really brought the focus to the cupcakes. I finished it by applying 3 small white and brown buttons tied with bakers twine.

My second card was also done with left over scraps (great way to use them up). This is a 5x5" card only but packs a lot of punch with the coloring I've used.  I used one of my larger cupcake stamps again fussy cut and only used bottom portion-then used little flowers in the same colors as the polka dot patterned paper..applied and tied a bow, then glued little glass embellishments to the center on flowers and tear drops on all 4 corners of top layer. My sentiment is stamped in olive green and versa marked and embossed with zing clear powder.

Hope you will play along with us at the Sugar and Spice Crafty Challenge!  The deadline is June 15th , 9 pm (PST).
