Challenge Chewsday - Clean and simple cupcakes!

These past few days, I have been giving my Create a Cupcake stamp set and matching Build a Cupcake punch from the brand spankin' new Autumn/Winter mini a serious workout, and inspired by two different challenges this week, came up with this little card...

It was based on this Clean & Simple Fall-to Layout #134...

...which in and of itself is clean and simple indeed, but by the time I had finished stamping and punching all six cupcakes, white embossing all the "bows" deciding on each of their embellishments, putting them in order, sticking them down and wondering where on earth I was going to fit the sentiment (you will note that I went with a strip of vellum overlaying the bottom row of cupcakes so as not to obscure them too much...), well let's just say that whoever gets this baby outta feel really loved.

Not that I have anybody in mind at the moment, I'm just sayin...

The colours were inspired by last weeks colourQ combination:

I took a bit of artistic licence with this, as technically the Cherry Cobbler that I used for my flower and cherry decorations and the So Saffron brads as the flower centres were not officially part of the line-up, but I'm pretty sure I can make out some So Saffron sprinkles on the bottom left cake in the above pic, as well as a couple of specks of Cherry Cobbler too.

At least that's my story, and I'm sticking to it.  Just as well we're not playing for sheep stations here...

The other little project I have been having fun with involving the cupcakes is the project I'm demonstrating at my workshops this month.  Super cute, it must be said :-)

With several workshop dates already booked and Easter looming, I have limited workshop opportunities left this month, but if you want to see this gorgeous set of products put through its paces (AND keep the cute project for yourself!) contact me asap and we'll work out a date!
