Cupcake Inspiration #22


Another Sunday brings around another Cupcake Inspiration challenge with the Sweeties at Hope Stamps Eternal! Check out these yummalicious creations! Do you feel inspired? (to stamp... not to eat!)
I have always loved the cute stamps from All That Scraps, so I finally took the plunge and bought some of their digital images! I love digi images... less expensive and you get instant gratification! This little cutie sittin' on her cupcake is from the Gingersnaps Celebrate set.

I decided to use this cherry-print paper from my Cosmo Cricket Early Bird mini deck from Hope Stamps Eternal. Geez, I love these papers! :) My little cupcake cutie was colored with Copics, and the cherry was accented with some Crystal Stickles. I also used Taylor's Sketch Challenge #80 for the layout on my card. The cupcake sentiment comes from the set of the same name by My Favorite Things.

There was a little debate among the Sweeties as to whether the base of the cupcakes was dark brown or black. I decided for myself that they were brown, that way I could also create my card for the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge that my incredibly sweet friend Sankari Wegman co-hosts each week! This weeks featured movie is Forrest Gump (one of my favorite movies, ever!) and the challenge is to use brown in your card... just like chocolate because we all know "Life is like a box of chocolates!" right? One of my families favorite parts of this movie is when Forrest is in the infirmary after being injured in the battlefield in Vietnam. He's being wheeled back to his bed, laying on this stomach (because of the injury to his "butt-ocks!") and he's eating an ice cream cone, and bringing another one for Lieutenant Dan. He holds out the ice cream, hollering "Lieutenant Dan, ICE CREAM! Ice cream, Lieutenant Dan!" Too funny.... whenever we hear the ice cream truck at our house, someone always yells "ice cream!" and we launch into that whole dialogue!
Here's the inside of the card, accented with another cupcake from the Celebrate set, and a border punched with my Fiskars Apron Lace punch.
See what my Sweetie Sisters have created for this challenge too, by stopping by their blogs! And also check out our Guest Designer this week, Anna Fiebelkorn.
