Scrappy Frogs Challenge - Cupcakes!

Now anyone who knows me even just a little bit knows I {heart} cupcakes!

I saw this challenge, and I knew I wanted to try out my Sweet Treats Cricut Cartridge!

The papers are from K & Company, Die Cuts with a View, and Neenah Solar White Cardstock.

I cut each layer for the cupcake, and the background.  I wanted the wrapper to "pop" off of the background, so I cut out the layer then painstakingly cut small pieces of foam tape to go on each little strip to make the top layer stand out.  I inked the edges for a little more dimension.

I cut the frosting layer on an angle for some added interest.  The heart topper is cut from DCWV glitter paper in pink.  I highlighted the heart with my Sakura Puffy White pen.

The inside is an Inkadinkado stamped image colored with my Copic Markers.  I stamped the image on Neenah cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

The embellishments on the front are from my stash.  The heart brad was from a $1 bin at Big Lots.  The heart stick pin is homemade.  I took a quilting pen and glued a pink heart button on top with Gorilla Glue.  Of course, I took the button shank off first~  I let it dry, then tied a bow using DMC floss.

The sentiment is a combination of Michael's $1 stamps and Papertrey, Ink stamps.  Both stamped using Neenah Cardstock and Memento Ink.

Come check out all of the other cards posted at Scrappy Frogs and join us for our fun challenges!
