Last Day for Cupcakes!

Yes it's the very last day you can get your hands on the lovely Create-a-Cupcake set from the Spring Mini - nobody knows whether this will be available in the future so, if you really want it, there is NO time to waste!
I was asked to make a personalised birthday card with cupcakes on it so this is what I've come up with. I started by stamping the name in Wisteria Wonder, using the Varsity Alphabet set and my Stamp-a-ma-Jig, along the bottom of a piece of Whisper White cardstock. The cake cases were then stamped on top of each letter in Pretty in Pink and the Perfect Plum Bow added. The frosting on the cakes was done with a variety of different methods - Heat'n'Stick with Dazzling Diamonds, clear embossing and silver embossing - and then cut out by hand (there is a co-ordinating punch to go with the set but unfortunately I don't have it!) After adding some decorations they were set aside until the rest of the card was finished. I stamped the sentiment from the Happiest Birthday Wishes Hostess set down the LH side and tied a knot of Wisteria Wonder Ruffled ribbon next to it before matting onto Wisteria Wonder cardstock and then onto a DL card blank. The frostings were then positioned onto the cakes using dimensionals and a few randomly placed Basic Rhinestones were placed underneath the letters.
With the 'going out' of the Spring Mini there comes the brand new Summer Mini which starts tomorrow. There is an ILWS Blog Hop, starting at 10a.m, to celebrate it's launch with lots of inspiring projects to show you - so come back tomorrow (oh and set aside a few hours to do all that blog hopping!)
