National Cupcake Blog Hop hosted by Creations By Gill M

Today Gill is hosting the National Cupcake Blog Hop and we hope you all hop along to see some fantastic projects.  If you have come here to view my blog and would like to hop you can start at Gill's blog for the line up.

I have made 3 cards for this hop and I hope you like what I have done.  Cupcakes are everyone's favourites including mine especially with a nice cup of tea.

For this project I have used my MCS Papercraft Library Bunny Snuffles Birthday.  I have used Spray and Sparkle iridescent spray from Crafter's Companion on the backing paper.  Decoupaged the top panel and added the row of cupcakes to glitter card.  I have stamped a cupcake from Kanban onto shrink plastic and using my Sakura glitter pens coloured in then shrunk.  I then added a ribbon and using Pinflair glue gel attached to the card.

The base card is from Hunkydory and I have printed off cupcake backing paper and attached this to the base of the card.  I have used gold peel offs around the card.  The cupcake stamps and coffee cup are from my Kanban stamp set.  I have coloured these in using my Spectrum noirs and Sakura Glitter pens.  The coffee cup has been embossed with clear embossing powder and for the froth on the top I have used Fluffy Stuff by Woodware.  The cupcakes have been glittered and again I have attached a small cupcake pendant which has been shrunk and tied with a ribbon to the greeting die cut.

Again I have used Hunkydory base card and backing paper from MCS Papercraft Library Bunny Snuffles.  The digi stamp is one that I won from Sweet Treats which I have cut out using my scalloped nestie.  I added pink ribbon and a bow then decoupaged the cupcake.  The frosting on the top of the cupcake has had the Cosmic Shimmer Cosmic Twinkles effect.  I have attached a cupcake to the topper with mobile phone attachment.

I hope you have enjoyed viewing my projects and will now continue the hop by visiting Linda to see what she has made.

Thank you for stopping by today.
