Although I don't officially join the Friday Mashup design team until September, I did create a card for this week's challenge, dual-purposing it as a shoebox project for our sideline meeting as well.
Isn't this cupcake the yummiest? I couldn't resist trying to duplicate it when I saw it. Here's what I've got -
For the Mashup, the challenge was to create a project with cupcakes and buttons. I did add some paper piecing, which was "extra credit" at the Mashup. And the object of the shoebox swap was to use supplies from the new catalog. The stamp set here is Sweets for the Sweet. I wanted to use the umbrella image, and I couldn't figure out a way to use it with the other stamps in the set, so I paired it with the cupcake punch. I'm going to have to get more of these mini brads, 'cause I'm loving them! I also used sketch #120 from Stamping 411.
Here you can see that I punched the cupcake top three times and trimmed to try to duplicate the frosting in the picture. What'cha think?
Don't forget to submit your challenge idea for "fan favorite". We could be doing your challenge in the near future!
