Sprinkled with Love - TE Blast from the Past blog hop

Welcome to this month's Blast from the Past customer blog hop sponsored by Taylored Expressions!!!

This time the theme was love, and I interpreted the word a little differently. I have a love for desserts and I thought my Sprinkled with Love set would be perfect for today's hop.

The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto choice snow white and coloured with copics. I cut it out and popped it on foam tape for dimension and I used my stamp-a-majig to position the sentiment exactly where I wanted it above the cupcake. I added yellow Stickles to the sprinkles and coated the cherry with my clear glaze pen for some shine.

All the papers and embellishments are from my Valentine Project Pantry, including the pink sparkly fluff I used to cover the chipboard heart. In the background you may notice that I used my Hearts impression plate for a subtle pattern and my small scallop border die created the perfect red edge. The layout is Mojo174.

One lucky participant will win a Taylored Expressions stamp set of their choice, just for playing along, so be sure to join the fun and sign up for next month's hop!!

I'm off to check out the rest of this month's fabulous creations!



Thanks for stopping by!
Karen
