Cupcake Inspiration with the HSE Sweeties


The Hope Stamps Eternal Sweeties have another Cupcake Inspiration challenge for you this week! The design team at HSE has been officially dubbed "The Sweeties" because we'll be bringing you such sweetness each week with the Cupcake challenge, and this is the first official challenge for our team together. So to celebrate, Rachel is giving away some SWEETS from the Hope Stamps Eternal store to one lucky participant! Check out the cupcake below, take some inspiration from it (you don't have to use a cupcake on your creation... just be inspired by the one we've presented), create a card, and leave a link to your creation with the Mr. Linky on the HSE blog. Deadline to enter is 9:00 p.m. MT on Saturday, July 18th.
Here's the cupcake to inspire you, from Life's Ambrosia!
And here's my card! The cherry on top immediately made me think of my Hero Arts Cupcake clear stamp set, so that's what I just had to use! I chose to use my Basic Grey Urban Prairie paper for this, but if you check out the other Sweetie's cards, you'll see that the new Lemonade paper would work beautifully for this! (AND it's available in the HSE store!)
Stop by the Sweeties blogs for more ideas, and don't forget to leave a link to your card on the HSE blog! If you upload to an online gallery like Paper Craft Planet, don't forget to tag your upload with CIC15.


Thanks for visiting my blog today! I hope you had a great weekend, and have an even greater Monday! I only have a 3-day week this week, as I'm leaving Thursday morning for an extended weekend trip! Wanna' know what I'm doing? Are you sure? You'll be INCREDIBLY jealous! OK... on Thursday morning, I'm leaving with my friend Darlene Pavlick.

This is such a great card! So bright and cheerful- love the cupcake too!

Sorry I haven't been by for a while, but I have been sooo busy! Daughter #3 got married when my brand new son-in-law was home from Iraq, and of course, when they got back from their honeymoon I had to to visit with him before he had to go back, and then summer activities... Have been browsing your blog though and as always, everything is simply wonderfully done!!!!

Have a great week Tammy!!
