Hey, Cupcake!

Every month, I have at least two card classes, one on Thursday and one on the next Saturday. I love getting together with my friends, and I get as much (or more) out of the classes than they do.

One of my stamping friends, Christy Tobin (who is also a demonstrator), brings me something every time she comes to the office. Last night at our demo meeting, she brought me a handful of gorgeous cards to display. And Thursday, she brought me this.

Watercolor Wings, Stampin' Up!

Is that just so cute, or what? She used the Watercolor Wings stamp set with the Bold Butterfly Framelits for the base (and she used Blushing Bride – one of my favorite colors and my absolute favorite pink!). The “plate” is a metallic doily on a window sheet. And the cupcake is punched circles and the first half of a “rosette” using the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper from the Occasions Catalog. If I had seen this several weeks ago, it may have been one of the decorations for a luncheon I have coming up!

I have been crazy busy lately with various projects and responsibilities. (This is my year to learn the words, “No, I can’t.”) My dear Christy is doing everything she can to fill up the empty spaces that are going to be on my sample boards when I take down projects with retired products in June.  I am super grateful for friends who step in and lend a hand when I’m over my head. Christy is full of wonderful ideas and tips. What did I do before she moved back to Virginia?

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a wonderful day, filled with love and friendship!

    Shut the front door!! This is amazing – I love this cupcake and stand! (yes, I’m using a lot of exclamation points – that’s because you can’t see my mouth hanging open! LOL) Ok, I think I can figure out the stand part – but how did she get the top of the cupcake to stay on the bottom part?? Any hope of directions for those of us less talented? Thanks for sharing, Buffy and Christy!

      It is super, super cute in person. More than in the photo, if you can believe it. The top is 1/2 of a styrofoam ball, with the DSP glued to it. The “liner” is just scored, then adhered to form a circle. I’m definitely making some of these!
