Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop! This week we are featuring our favorite new stamp set from the new catalog.
The SWEET CUPCAKE BUNDLE was the first thing on my wish list after seeing the new catalog. I simply love the realistic look of these yummy cupcakes! And with the bundle you get coordinating framelits so no fussy cutting!
The biggest thing to decide when creating these cupcakes was the colors. You want three distinct layers of color for both the icing and cupcake.
This cupcake is chocolate, so I layered Sahara Sand, Tip top Taupe and Soft Suede. For a fun yummy frosting I went with Soft Sky, Pool Party and Bermuda Bay. All of these colors are favorites for me, especially Bermuda Bay.
To go along with the chocolate cupcake, I went with a Soft Suede card base and a gorgeous gold polka dot paper. I got the gold polka dots from the beautiful POP OF PINK SPECIALTY DSP. This is such a a fabulous paper that I didn’t add any other bling, although I did test out Bermuda Bay Sequins…it was just better without. Sometimes less is definitely more! Speaking of MORE, have you subscribed to the July Mini Session yet?? If you haven’t you are missing out!
