CIC 138 - Whimsy Stamps


We are sponsored this week by:
And if you haven't checked out their stamps, please do so - something for everyone, I promise!

Our inspiration confection for this week:

Seriously, how cute is that little gingerbread house - every little bit looks edible - YUM!!! I won an image from Whimsy Doodles awhile back and had yet to use it - what a perfect opportunity! Thankfully our mailbox DOES NOT look like this yet - love the cooler temps, but I don't need any snow just yet - LOL!

The red layer was spritzed with Marshmallow glimmer mist - tough to see, but maybe you can see the incredible sparkle in the close-up picture? I added puffy stuff for the snow and then sprinkled it with large glitter pieces.

I painted the jingle bells white because I love white jingle bells - no other reason - HA! I edged the green layer with a white gel pen and some wonderful red/white twine finished it off. Go ahead, find some inspiration within that amazing cake and then join us over at the Cupcake Challenge!
 

... keeping warm with a gorgeous winter scarf ...

Hugs,
