Create a Cupcake and cheer up (buttercup!)

Rustling up a batch of cupcakes has been known to raise my spirits in the past but now I have all sorts of dietary restrictions, baked cupcakes have lost their attraction. Stamped ones though, well that's a different matter! Here's a batch I decorated earlier:

Stampin' Up's Create a Cupcake stamp set and coordinating punch made producing these little cuties a doddle - and no washing up to be done either!

The cupcake cases were paper-pieced using one of the papers from the pretty Gingham Garden designer paper pack...

... and this fabulous sentiment would cheer anyone up, especially in a happy colour combination of Raspberry Ripple and Daffodil Delight!

I'll be linking this card up with Make My Monday where the theme is Food and Drink and CASual Friday's Three Thirds challenge which is looking for a group of three on a card.

My family always manage to cheer me up. "Turn that frown upside down!" they'll say sarcastically to make me giggle. My daughter is learning quotes for her upcoming English exam, so her advice comes from none other than Billy Shakespeare: "Sigh no more ladies," she says soulfully. "Converting all your sounds of sorrow into hey nonny nonny!"

Hmm. Hey nonny nonny then and I'll see you tomorrow with a special gift project.

  2. I think these are the perfect cupcakes! Great card!

  3. Lovely cupcake card Vicky they make my mouth water...


  4. I'd never thought to punch out the cases from DP, can't wait to try that out! I too am forbidden cupcakes and all other goodies, I do find crafting takes my mind of it until I see such a yummy card as this one!
