Takin' Out the "Cupcake" Stash


There is just something about cupcakes that make me feel so happy! I love making them, I love eating them and I just plain ole' love looking at them. I was so excited when I found this line of 3 dimensional felt cupcakes by Little Yellow Bicycle at my new favorite store, A Scrap in Time...

My impulse is to HOARD THEM in my
"saving it for a "special occassion" stash"

Turns out this was the perfect card to go with these
I made these cupcakes for my son's bus driver.
Every time I make cupcakes, I make sure to give her one. Being that it was Valentine's Day and all, I created a cute little gift box filled with several. Besides keeping them off of MY HIPS, I also want her to know how much I appreciate her service of ensuring that my little boy gets to and from school safely!!!!!!!!!

Quick details about this card: I stamped my card base with polka dots, Added a strip of glitter & embossed patterned paper (also Little Yellow Bicycle), Punched & layered some border strips, Zig Zag Stitched them, Layered a Heart Shaped Doiley then Popped my Cupcake up with Pop Dots. The 3 small hearts were punched with a punch that I got out of a dollar bin and I just added little pearl accents (no they aren't the edible ones that I put on the cupcakes)

CHALLENGES I USED:
Cupcake Craft Challenge: I Love You (incorporate at least one heart into your project)
Stamp Something: Something for your Valentine
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge: Lovin' From the Oven (they also have a Design Team Call)
The Pink Elephant: Be My Valentine

..................Supplies I Used..................
Stamps: Paper Trey Ink (polka dot basics)
Cardstock: Paper Trey Ink (dark chocolate, aqua mist), Stampin Up (whisper white)
Patterned Paper: Little Yellow Bicycle (cupcake love)
Tools: Martha Stewart (doiley punch), Stampin Up (scalloped doiley punch), Dollar Tree (heart punch)
Misc: Target (heart doiley), Little Yellow Bicycle (felt cupcake), Hero Arts (pink pearls), pop dots
