Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #11

I have finally gotten somewhat out of my slump and actually made two cards today! One was for the Hope Stamps Eternal Cupcake Inspiration Challenge.

This is a different sort of cupcake from the soft, springy ones that Rachel often selects, so it took me a little bit of thinking to pull something together, but that's the purpose of a 'challenge' I guess!

As you can see, I actually did very little stamping on my card. I pulled out my crimper, which has not been used in years, to crimp some PTI Pure Poppy paper to mimic the cupcake liner. Then I used some of the gemstones from the Zva Creative crystal wheel from the Hope Stamps Eternal store to create a row of red, black, and clear bling. A strip of PTI Bitty Dot paper and a Greeting Farm sentiment from Hope Stamps Eternal finished off the card.

If you want to play along, make sure you link your card to Rachel's post to be included in her participant collage next Sunday.

Also, Rachel has put out a design team call for the HSE store. For more information, visit her post here, and visit here for a chance at an adorable cupcake set from Elzybells. The deadline is tomorrow night, so go enter now!


  1. OOOH! I love that line of tiny Pretty!!!

  2. Great minds think alike! i was totally trying to figure out how I could incorporate some crimping in my card, but I couldn't work it out. In any case, your card is FABULOUS! I love the bling all the way across the card and the crimping is just perfect!

  3. Actually, this is one of my favs from the challenge. Way to come out of a slump!
