A Couple Cupcake Cards


This first card is for the Cupcake Inspirations #100 Challenge! You should head on over since they have a great giveaway and super cute cupcakes for the inspiration pic. It's been a while since I've ventured over there to take a peek at the cupcakes that inspire the card challenges and just like always it made me hungry for cuppacakes and pastries! I tried to satisfy my sweet tooth by making this sweet card, but in the end I just had to bake something. Fortunately I chose to whip up some healthier whole-wheat applesauce muffins instead of cupcakes ;) It's rare for me to know right off what I want to do with a card, but with this one I instantly had the idea of a big sun in the background and some happy yummilicious cupcakes on top. The stamps are from Basic Grey that I nabbed for 50% of at Roberts last year and this is the first time I've used the set.



I had stamped out a half-dozen cupcakes to play with so I also made this card with a cupcake theme for the Corrosive Challenge. This week is distressing so I scissor distressed all the background paper edges (except the scallops of course). I also added a little sparkle to the cupcakes on this card for a little more fun. Some fun cards to finish off my weekend. Since I've finished my forever long take home test I'm going to reward myself with some co-op Halo Reach with my hubby ;) Enjoy the cards and have a great week!
