Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #35

I've finally gotten up enough nerve to play along this week.  I cannot believe that anyone would seriously eat this cupcake!

This is just so great! I love snowmen, so that's what my first card is from.

The DP is  something that I got out of a bin, and I'm not sure of the company - if I was guessing, it might be Graphics 45.  The edges are distressed and I backed it with SU! Chocolate Chip.

The snowman is actually a rub-on from the glass crafting section of Michael's.  Looks equally great on kraft paper.

The sentiment is Inkadinkadoo, embossed in SU! Chocolate Chip.

This second card was inspired by the color scheme of silver and blue. 

The DP is Basic Grey from my Mistletoe and Pear pad.  It's backed with SU! Night of Navy.

The stamp is a very old holly stamp that my mother gave me ages ago.  I seem to use it every year in a new way.  This year I embossed it with Stampendous! EP in Sapphire pearl. 

For bling, I added some crystal Stickles to the berries and silver pearls to the corners.

Happy holidays, everyone!  Thanks for letting me play!


  1. OHHHH, these are both SO pretty!!!! I love the Blue Toile look of the second on!!! Thanks for playing along with the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge this week!

  2. Oh Pam!! These are lovely and I am so happy you took the plunge and played along.

    It looks to me like the DP on the first is from MME their 29th Street Market line, the "Unique" page. That sentiment is perfect with that cut snowman!

    The second one is just as lovely, your corner embellies set off that amazing image!


  3. Thanks, Michelle for the clue on the DP. You know how I collect paper like mad and so much of it comes from random sales that I always forget the manufacturer.

    If I was really with it, I'd keep a recipe for every card, but that's probably expecting too much :)
