Nothing but sweetness!

Hi all! Coming up Tuesday, I'm heading up what's called the Stampin' Snack Bar at my LSS and this is one of the creations we are going to make. It's going to be a ton of fun because it will be set up like a salad bar with all the "fixin's" for each card/creation in a little fun basket. We'll make two cards and a little candy container. I just love this set from Hero!

For this card, all I did was stamp the cupcake and then stamp the little flower on top and colored them with watercolor pencils. The fun thing about clear stamps is I could see exactly where I had to set my flower in order to get it topped perfectly on my cupcake! Love that! I added some Diamond Stickles to the little sprinkles and to the flower. The paper is Crate Paper and on the blue strip, I added some fun polka dot ribbon from American Crafts.

Well, I am actually off to a baby shower this afternoon, so I best get crafting to come up with a card. Here it is in 2 hours and I have no card. That's pretty typical!

Have a great weekend!
