Congratulations to ME

Nichole Heady of Paper Trey Ink

picked ME as

July's Guest Star Stamper


Best Cupcake Project

I am officially on Vacation touring the entire Tuscan Region of Northern Italy. This will include visits to Pisa (yep the leaning tower), Florence, Bologna (Ducati motorcycles are made there), Venice, and hopefully Vicenza or Aviano to meet one of my paper crafting/blogging friends - Angie!!!!!!

Hopefully Nichole has posted the winners on her blog HERE..... Prior to leaving, I saw that I was featured in the winners album so I assume she will be announcing it soon. Anyhow, I used Paper Trey's new Cupcake stamp set along with Polka Dot Basics. After stamping the frosting on my paper, I pressed the stamp into the Martha Stewart Glue Pad and stamped directly over the inked image then sprinkled glitter over the glue, cut them out and adhered them on foam squares. The cupcake wrappers were stamped directly onto patterned paper and then cut out. Don't they look yummy??
..............Supplies I used..............
Stamps: Paper Trey Ink (polka dot basics, cupcake collection)
Paper: K&Co designer paper, Paper Trey Ink (aqua mist, hibiscus burst, white)
Ink: Paper Trey Ink (raspberry fizz, aqua mist), Stampin Up (certainly celery, piroque pink)
Tools: Martha Stewart Border Punch (from ABC toys & crafts),
Misc: Paper Trey Ink (button), Stampin Up (ribbon baja blue), embroidery thread, Martha Stewart glitter (Abc toys & crafts), EK success foam squares (ABC toys & crafts)
