True Beauty is Found Within Cake--with Lots of Frosting!
Gingersnap Creations is celebrating its one year blog birthday.
1) This little creation of mine fulfills the GC46 Spicy Supply frosting blog challenge well as
2) the GC Yahoo Group Cupcake challenge.
How perfect is this digital image (#534 Marie-True Beauty) from Paper Imagery Designs which I purchased especially because of those yummy cupcakes?!?!?! It was a given for me to use it for
3) Monday's PID butterflies and flowers weekly blog challenge. And let's not forget
4) the Oh Alice challenge to use the Queen's Fine Print. I just love the sentiment on this ATC: True beauty is found within cake.
Marie definitely is vintage so I entered this in the
5) Lots to Do vintage challenge. And finally,
6) The Shabby Tea Room Wk#3 challenge Let's Get Scrappy. I used old sheer ribbon which I cut up to fit as a bow behind Marie for a little more sheen. We didn't have to use the colors for inspiration, but they are in the ATC.
I printed the ATC PID image twice in order to cut out Marie and place her on the ATC with pop dots. This allowed me to place the sheer ribbon bow behind her as well as the rhinestone butterfly in the lower corner.
In addition to the PID image and sheer ribbon, materials used are:
glue and white glitter on the ATC; Diamond Stickles around the edges
Pink and Holly (green) Stickles as frosting on the 2 cupcakes
Rock Candy Stickles: thick on the butterfly; thin on cupcake liners and two pink flowers on Marie's headdress (I left the flowers on her dress alone so that they could be seen better for the flowers portion of the PID challenge.)
Sakura Gelly Roll pen for the gold necklace, bracelet and roping on Marie's dress
Lots of rhinestones. The teal ones are Hero Arts. (I found it funny that you can see the camera and my hands reflected in the clear rhinestones that I used for cherries on the cupcakes! LOL)
