Our inspiration cupcakes for this week:
I LOVE the snowman in this picture - LOVE and I thought the 2 snowmen in "Snow Wonderful" from Verve Visual were so similar I decided to use one of them - if I had used the one with the Santa hat, it would have been even a closer match; but I wanted to use the little guy with the super cute hat. :D GREAT stamp set!
As much as I loved the snowman, I loved the colors I used in my card yesterday; so yep - I went right back there again! HA!
I stamped the snowman onto the tag created with Verve's Tagged Rectangle Die; what you can't see is that I stamped the snowflakes from Snow Wonderful on the base of the tag with VersaMagic Wheat - love the touch it added IRL. The button at the top is a clear button, I tied on some twine, then backed it with the same striped paper from MME. The "U" is from Verve's I Heart U die set; the smaller tag was created with Papertreyink's Tiny Tags Die and I used just the words "for you" from Verve's Just for You stamp set, letting the large U work for the last piece.
The scalloped border is from Papertreyink and is edged with VersaMagic Wheat and I added some chocolate pearls. The pearls on the small "for you" tag were originally white, I used my Copics to color them burgundy.
The layout is this week's Sweet Stop #138 - FABULOUS layout with endless possibilities!
I think that's about it - thanks for stopping by; hope you'll join the Cupcake Inspiration this week!!
