Cupcake Inspiration #24


Time for another Cupcake-inspired challenge with the Hope Stamps Sweeties! In honor the upcoming holiday we have these awesome pirate cupcakes for you today! What? You don't know about the upcoming holiday??? Where have you been? Everyone knows that next Saturday, September 19th is Talk Like a Pirate Day! Avast, me hearties.... be inspired by yon cupcakes and create some swashbuckling cards!
I had no choice for this challenge but to use some very neglected Cat's Pajamas pirate stamps that were gathering dust in my stash! I was also inspired by the colors and used some paper from my Cosmo Cricket Early Bird paper deck (available at Hope Stamps Eternal). Plus I thought the Moroccan Screen Cuttlebug embossing folder (also available at Hope Stamps Eternal) mimicked the red pattern on top of the white cupcakes.

I also used the TCP Tuesday Challenge #75 from this past week, which was a sketch challenge hosted by Leigh for the layout of my card!
And the inside... can't neglect that!
Stop and see what the other Sweeties have created if you need further inspiration! And don't forget to stop at the Hope Stamps blog and leave a link to your creation!
