Here, Have a Cupcake ... a 15 Minute Project

Pin It

Today's 15 Minute project was created in a nano-second using die-cuts!

Using my Sizzix cupcake die, I cut out three cupcakes on different colored card stock, then put the cupcake back together again using elements of the die in different colors. If you click on the image, you'll notice that I put the top layer of the frosting through the Cuttlebug "Divine Swirl" embossing folder.

I stamped my sentiment on Kraft card stock, then cut it out using a Nesties Large Classic Circle die, and mounted it on a scrap of pink card stock cut with a Nestie die from the Petite Scallop set.

Finally, I added some pink grosgrain ribbon around the front of the card and applied some Crystal Lacquer to the 'cherry' for a little dimension and shine.

Easy-peasy and ready to serve in just 15 Minutes ... and who doesn't love chocolate cupcakes with strawberry frosting, huh?!?

Thanks so much for sharing part of your busy day with me; YKYR!

Ooh! Yum. I will take 4 of these please.

You had a perfect colors here for using them with the white ink challenge, but I guess you chose not to.

Oh and one more thing, the stem on the cherry is usually the same color as the cherry, unless it is dipped in chocolate like here ;-)
