Make a Wish

My Favorite Things is sponsoring the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge this week and I'm playing along to help get you in a stampy mood.

I used à la modes Birthday Girl because she's holding the most delicious looking cupcake!! I'm imagining it's a peanut butter chocolate cupcake...yum!

The inspiration photo lead me to choose papers from the Echo Park Victoria Gardens collection, which I paired with Hot Fudge, Pink Lemonade, Kraft and white. I embossed the background paper for added texture and interest. The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with copic markers. I used the Small Scallop Border Die-namics to cut out the pink scallops piece for the little tab and jazzed it up with rhinestones.

I used the Plentiful Petals Die-namics to cut out three layers for that gorgeous flower and topped it with a Kraft button tied up with linen thread. I adore this flower die!

On the inside I let the patterned paper shine and simply stamped another sentiment from the set along with the girl in Memento Toffee Crunch.

Here's the yummy inspiration photo! Be sure to hop over to the Cupcake Inpirations blog for plenty more inspiring projects!!

Here are the Die-namics I used:
