Cupcake Inspiration Challenge 57

Looking for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch?  Hop on over to this post.

Hello!  I'm back for another fantastic Cupcake Inspiration Challenge from Hope Stamps Eternal and this one was SO much fun to make.  I started off with Taylor's TESC110 and wanted to use that amazing embossed fondant on the cupcake tops, so I ran some whisper white cardstock through the Cuttlebug in the Victoria embossing folder - beautiful!  The flower is made with the Little Leaves die from Stampin' Up! and the Beautiful Blooms 2 #3 die from Papertrey Ink.  I wanted to use some paper with a little punch to it, so I picked up my stack of Basic Grey Green At Heart for the flowers and the pink underlay.  Love the distressed look!

Don't forget about the clearance sale at Hope Stamps Eternal - unfortunately, the store will be closing - everything is on sale for 35% off while supplies last.

Among other things, you can find GREAT DEALS on:

Paper from Cosmo Cricket, KaiserCraft, Pink Paislee, and Bella Blvd.
Embellishments from Zva Creative, Memory Box and Basic Grey
Stamps from Tina Wenkle, The Greeting Farm and Inkadinkado
