Taylor’s cupcake challenge #16 May 17, 2008

and an early MFTeaser with permission from the MFT Lady 🙂  because I don’t have many cupcake images and so wanted to use a cupcake for a cupcake challenge…lol

Here is the card I made for Taylor’s challenge:


Let me start by saying that I hardly ever tear paper on my cards.  Not that I don’t like it.  Some of the papers are very pretty that I have a hard time tearing them.   The MFT stamp set will be a mini released in June titled “What’s up Cupcake?”.  Love it!  Wait till you see all the fun things for those cupcakes:)  I added K&Co. adhesive rhinestones and Ranger Icicle Stickles to my yummy cupcakes.  The patterned paper is Day Dream Check Her Out by My Mind’s Eye.  The large decorative brad to the lower left corner is Just Corina by Prima.  The light blue grosgrain ribbon is by American Crafts. 


Have a wonderful weekend.

    I love your creations…Great job with the card and I commend you on the paper tearing…I too have a real tough time with this…I think that it’s much too pretty to tear up.

  3. This card is ADORABLE!!!! I love that cupcake stamp and will have to get one for myself after seeing this card! I love all of the little details you put into the cupcakes – their colored icing is adorable and the little rhinestones are just perfect. TFS!!!
