I totally love versatile stamp sets! I'm very choosy & when I select a stamp set to buy, I want to know that I can use it in many different ways. I try to visualize what kind of projects I can use it for & only buy it if I really think I'm going to use it a lot. Create a Cupcake is perfect in my eyes! ;) There's so much you can do with this set! I created both backgrounds using the candle and heart stamps.
A Gem of a Challenge 11: This is a new challenge for me and I just love the sketch below. I twisted one of the panels just a bit for a different twist to it.
Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge #33: Isn't this picture delish?
Using the Build a Cupcake punch, I punched out my cupcake and sprayed it with some Smooch Spritz in Vanilla Shimmer. I added the cherry and then highlighted it with Smooch Pearlized Ink in Moonlight.
The ruffled ribbon was pretty easy to make. Separate the ends and pull one of the middle fibers while you scrunch down the ribbon. It creates this cool looking ruffled look! :)
