Cupcake Inspiration #29 - Witchly Wishes


Well, I'm a little late to the party this week, but I'm finally getting around to the Hope Stamps Eternal Cupcake Inspiration challenge #29! Whadya' think of these cupcakes? Aren't they adorable? Years ago, my Mom had a witch she had made... sewed all her clothes, and I believe her body was made from pantyhose stuffed with poly-fil. She was SO cute in her black cape and hat, and had a cute Fall-patterned dress. She even had a broom my Mom made to fly on, and she hung from the light fixture in our kitchen every year. As kids, my sister and I named her Grizelda, and that is exactly what I was reminded of when I saw these cupcakes!
For my card, I used this cute with from my new Rubbernecker Halloween set #2, and I added some Basic Grey Eerie paper (available at Hope Stamps Eternal) for a little extra color. The layout for my card comes from the Weekend Sketch Challenge #102.
The buckle on her hat, and her buttons and shoes are all sparkly from some Spica glitter pens, and I used the Spiderweb Cuttlebug embossing folder for the black strip of cardstock.
See what the other Sweeties cooked up for you this week, inspired by these cute cupcakes, and make time to play along!


I hope you had a great weekend! Mine was restful, and full of blessings!
