Pile of Cupcakes- SCIC#35

Are you ready to celebrate?!? We over at the Stampin' Celebration blog are, and we want you to join us! This week we are welcoming two new design team members and a brand new blog design/look!

We have our weekly inspiration challenge as well as some BLOG CANDY! Head over to the Stampin' Celebration blog for more details, to see the new look and to welcome the new design team members!!

Look at these fun bright inspiration pictures we have to work with this week! Here is what I came up with!

I used the new Cupcake punch from the Occasions mini and different colors of card stock (Pear Pizazz, Marina Mist, Real Red, Blushing Bride, Daffodil Delight and Baja Breeze) to make the cupcakes. I sent the "frosting" through the Big Shot with the Perfect polka dots embossing folder. To give the cupcakes a little more depth, I sponged the coordinating inks on them.

I made the cupcake stand using the scalloped edge punch and a few circles. The swirl's are from the Swirls Scribble Sizzlits die and the Big Shot. The sentiment was stamped in Early Espresso ink on to Whisper White card stock ans then made into a banner.

I hope you join us in our celebrating this week over at the Stampin' Celebration blog!

Thanks for looking!
