The Lollipop Ladies #48 - A Cupcake Recipe!

Here's my entry for the latest challenge at the Lollipop Ladies:-

& here's the inspiration picture:-

As well as all those yummy cupcakes to get your creatives juices going, there is the added embellishment challenge to incorporate:-

  • 1 of 1 item;
  • 2 of another, &
  • 3 of a third item.

I have chosen to "bake" a chocolate cupcake, complete with spotty patty pan & matching envelope.  I have added:-

  • 1 button;
  • 2 tags, &
  • 3 types of baker's twine.

I've made my cupcake from the super versatile petal cone die, & embossed my patty pan with the stripes embossing folder.  The envelope has been custom made, using the scoring tool.

Here's the front of the envelope.   :)

I love your cute cupcake with the matching envelope. The embossing on the 'chocolate' looks fantastic. I must try the 'cupcake' card using the Petal Cone Die. Thanks for joining in with the challenge over at the Lollipop Ladies.

This is VERY cute, Helen. I love cupcakes, polka dots and bakers twine (oh, and tiny tags!), so this really makes me smile. Love the use of the Starburst wheel on the cupcake frosting.

Hi my friend! Sorry it has been so long. I sorted my blog reader lists ... Unsubbed all my email subs ... And somehow lost your link AGAIN! I am such a bad blog friend! But here I am determined to catch up on all I have missed! Love the bright colours of the cupcake and envelope! I need to make a square envelope ... Hhhmmm. Where to start? Hugs xxx
