To enter just leave a comment on the Ellen Hutson Classroom blog and the Concord & 9th blog by 12pm PST on December 26th.
I had lots of fun with the images and dies in this set. I started by securing the sprinkle stamp and paper in my MISTI and stamping several times to create a decorative background layer. I attached the layer to the card base using ATG adhesive. I cut the Lawn Fawn Fancy Scalloped Rectangle Stackables layer, secured it in my MISTI and stamped the sentiment. I attached the sentiment layer to the red layer using ATG adhesive and then applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back and attached to the card base.
I cut the cupcake top out in white and the bottom in red. I crimped the bottom to add dimension. I applied white embossing paste to the top using a Sofft spatula. When the paste was totally dry I attached the tiny heart sprinkles all over it using glossy accents. I cut two little leaves off of a stem from the Impression Obsession Leaves and Stems set and attached it along with one additional heart to the tippy top of the cupcake with glossy accents for a sweet embellishment. I think this looks good enough to eat. I am hoping there is a chocolate cake underneath all that frosting.
You should have arrived here from Justine’s post and the next stop on the hop will be Karen’s post. You can check back to the CLASSroom blog or Concord & 9th blog for the complete hop order. Thanks for coming by and I sure hope you enjoy seeing all the wonderful designs made with this sweet set.
