H2H week of 7/26
The sock "cupcake" made the rounds on the Cricut MB a few months ago. I took the opportunity for this week's challenge at www.heart2heartchallenges.blogspot.com to make a few for gifts for fellow scrapbook retreat goers. The challenge was to use the Close To My Heart colors of Blush, Vineyard Berry and Creme' Brulee'. I cut 2 cupcake wrappers using my Cricut. I did not have CTMH Vineyard Berry ink or paper so I used another brand for that layer of cardstock. I cut off the decorative top of the blush cupcake wrapper and then stamped it in blush using the CTMH Rock Star stamps. I used a blender pen to accent with Creme Brulee'. I cut out a few stamped stars and affixed to the edge of the blush layer. I used pink pearls from my stash to decorate the top of the wrapper. The frosted cupcake is actually a spa sock from Michaels rolled up and put inside the wrapper. Glitz glitter glue from CTMH frosted the stars and stamping. I used CTMH organdy ribbon and another cutout star to top off my confection. No calorie sweetness-my favorite!
