Cupcake Inspirations Challenge 332

Sunday, October 18, 2015

Hi there, cupcake fans!
It is time for another Cupcake Inspirations Challenge!
This week's sponsor is The Stamping Boutique.

I love those brain cupcakes, so fun!!! (I'm a zombie fan...LOL)
I think it was so clever to get the colors from this photo instead of the image!
Well, here is my take...

The sponsor generously provided us a few digital images to work with, and I picked this adorable snowman! 

I chose Lost Lagoon, Very Vanilla, and Smoky Slate.
I die cut a few different Hillside Borders in Very Vanilla, layered them then die cut with the Cross Stitched Square Die. I also die cut another square in watercolor paper and water colored the top with Lost Lagoon, then layered the snow banks on top.
I wanted some snowflakes so I stamped that cute little snowflakes from the Winter Alpaca Stamp Set. 

If you saw my post from yesterday, I am obsessing with pleats these days...and here it is. I used the Lost Lagoon Ribbon on this one.
I heat embossed the sentiment with silver on watercolor paper, colored with Lost Lagoon, then fussy cut it. 

A piece of the Very Vanilla Cardstock was embossed with the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder because I think it looks like falling snow!

My notes...

Stamp: Mini Snowman (The Stamping Boutique), Winter Alpaca (Lawn Fawn), Brushed Christmas (Essentials by Ellen)
