HSS # 99- Cupcake Inspiration

Hey y'all! Have you recovered from Christmas? Man, this year's was a killer for me! But, it ended up being wonderful for my kids, my family and me! But, I'm ready to pack it away and have a calm life for a while!

Today is Hand Stamped Sentiment's 99th Challenge! That's amazing! And, this week, we have a BEAUTIFUL inspiration photo for you!

I try to not take inspiration photos so literal, you know, think outside the box. But, this one was so beautiful, I really wanted to try to recreate it as best I could.

This fun stamp set is a new one available January 4th in the Stampin' Up's Occasions Catalog. It is called Sweet Cake and it is a set of 4- the cupcake and 3 sentiment's.

I stamped it first in Metallic Gold on Soft Suede CS and embossed it in pewter. I stamped it again on Baja Breeze CS. I cut it out and layered the blue cupcake on top of the Soft Suede one. I added some Dazzling Details and a large Pearl (also in the new catalog.) I stamped the sentiment in Baja Blue on Whisper White and punched it out with the Modern Label.

Turned this way, you can really see the bling! It's very fancy! ;-)
I cut a piece of Baja Breeze CS and embossed it in the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder. I finished it off with a Baja Breeze Seam Binding bow.

So, we'd like for you to give it a try! This inspiration can be interpreted a literally as I did, or as loosely as you'd like. We really want to see what you create so please come back and link to us!

Thanks for stopping by! Come back tomorrow because I can't wait to show you what I got for Christmas!
