Make A Wish …. Cupcakes!


Hi everybody,

Yahhhhhh it’s Saturday which means it is time for another challenge with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog.

Being a brand new month we have a new hostess for our challenges which is ME!!!!!! When I was searching for ideas for challenges I discovered that it is Cupcake Day in Australia on the 16th August…. this is a fund raising event for the RSPCA. Well having tons of cupcake stamps and templates I figured this would make a fun challenge and I hope you do too.


First up my card, I decided to use one of MFT Stamps new range, the à la modes Birthday Girl. What a big cupcake she is carrying!

I used a SFYTT sketch from the 24th July for the layout of my card. I also paper pieced the girls dress and the icing part of the cupcake.


Here is the inside of my card, I used one of the sentiments which is included in the à la modes Birthday Girl set.


So I couldn’t stop with just a card! I found this fun template on The Digi Chicks site and of course just had to buy it as it looked like such fun and it was! After a bit of playing around I figured out how to convert the PDF file that you get so I could cut it out using my cricut, so much easier then doing it by hand.

The best thing about this cupcake is that it is no calories hehe!


To finish of my cupcake box I added some red gingham ruffled ribbon and a flower to the top which was created using the Die-namics Rolled Flower Die.


Here is another view of my cupcake box, you can get a much better look at my rolled flower that I created using the Die-namics Rolled Flower Die. In The middle of my flower I added a glittered garnish.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.
