Paper Sweeties May Inspiration #19 – ‘Cupcakes & Sprinkles’:


We have this yummy photo and gorgeous color palette to be inspired by this month … and here is what I created:


I began with a base of cardstock, washi tape and patterned paper onto which I layered a selection of pretties!  I adhered a pink glittered chipboard heart and then on top of that layered a sweet cupcake stamped using the Sending Sweet Thoughts stamps set and die cut using the Sending Sweet Thoughts Sweet Cuts set!  I stamped the sentiment using the So Sweet of You stamp set!


I added some pretty pink trim, a row of fun red buttons, an aqua flourish … then added a couple of yummy Robin Egg Sequins and a stamped row of teeny tiny cupcakes using the Sending Sweet Thoughts stamp set.


Please be sure to continue to hop along and be inspired by the rest of the Sweeties teamies’ projects today:
