PTT #1 Feb 1 - It's Party Time

It's Party Time!  You may have noticed over on the side bar that I am now a Party Planner at Party Time Tuesday's Challenge Blog.  The site has recently changed ownership, so today 1st of February kicks off the start of the new challenges for 2011, and we are all ready to Party with our Valentine Cupcake Challenge.

Having only ever eaten Cupcakes I couldn't resist using the Cupcake Card Template from this weeks sponsor the Cutting Cafe.  As well as this delicious template we also had a choice of a number of images from their Fun with Valentine's Day Digital Collection to help create our project.


Paper - Stampin' Up!, Digi Images - The Cutting Cafe Cupcake Template and Fun with Valentines Day
Other: Ribbon - SU, Embossing Folders, Embossing Powder, Glitter, Glossy Accents.

The Cupcake Template by the Cutting Cafe had every aspect covered including those delicious looking sprinkles and cherry.   I used my frosting mix (Dazzling Diamonds mixed with Clear Embossing Powder) to frost the cupcake before adding extra dimension with my embossing folders.  I also embossed the cupcake paper liner for added dimension and sponged colour over this ever so lightly.

I had great fun making this card as it was sorta like baking a cupcake, as you had to put all the layers together and then ice or embellish in this case.  To finish I added the ribbon and then the sentiment and heart border which are both from the Cutting Cafe's Fun with Valentine's Day Collection. 

This is only the second time I have worked with Digital images and I have to say I enjoyed making a hybrid card with them and I found the PDF format super easy to use and work with.  I guess the only thing left for me now is to ask who wants a Cupcake? or more importantly who is up to the Challenge and wants to Party.  I hope to see you join in all the fun with us at Party Time Tuesday's.
