#36 Cupcakes

No prizes for guessing what the challenge here at I ♥ Promarkers is this week. You really couldn’t tell from looking at the card alone could you! LOL. Yes, that’s right. Cupcakes – or should that be, at least here in the British Isles, Fairy Cakes? Mine are definitely more of the smaller Fairy Cake variety, but either are most welcome as the design feature this week. Just remember that you MUST use Promarkers on your project (our name does kind of give this away, but the occasional entrant does seem to miss this in their haste to join in!) LOL.

As you can also see, I haven’t actually used an image as such this week but created my own cakes, their paper-cases and even some of the cake decorations all out of card. I am sure that you will have a favourite flavour or topping and that is what I have gone for with this card, a variety of cakes, all appealing to someone, all individual and each delicious in its own little way. The cakes themselves are nothing more elaborate that circles coloured with Promarkers to give me various coloured icing before adding the variety of decorations. ‘Sugar strands' of bugle beads, ‘hundreds & thousands’ aka tiny beads & not to mention a ‘sugar flower’ and jelly diamonds of Promarker-ed card, all glued to the top of their respective ‘baked’ confection.

The central top cake with the ‘bite’ taken out of it uses a sentiment from TLC, but the one lower down literally glued to a cut-down cocktail stick, I created on the PC before adding into the silicone glue of the butterfly cake. All the paper cases are made from white or silver card just cut with pinking sheers.

Right, that is how I made my card for this week’s challenge & I hope that you will find a cupcake image somewhere in your stash and join in our challenge this week too as I look forward to visiting your blogs and leaving a comment. Our prize on this occasion is from Die Cut Dreams – some scalloped circles, book shapes and stands for the finished cards –shame I can’t enter myself! LOL.
