Edible Valentine Roses

Tonight is the January New Release at Papertrey Ink and this is my entry for this months Guest Star Stamper Contest. The catagory I am entering this project in is Valentine Treats. I started with a Large heart tin from PTI and following Debbie Olsons instructions I covered the tin with 2 different patterns of Razzberry Fizz Mix cardstock and Dark Chocolate Satin Ribbon. After that I lined the bottom of the tin with waxed paper and filled it with homemade mini Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes that I frosted with red icing then I decorated them with handmade roses using mini fruit roll ups and then I piped the leaves on.
After that I put the lid on and tied some Vintage Cream Satin ribbon in a bow on the upper right side of the tin then I cut out a heart from white coreboard using a Cuttlebug Babyfaced die and colored it with Raspberry Fizz Ink. I then stamped the Enjoy saying from the Mixed Messages set in the middle of the heart using Fresh Snow Ink. When the ink was dry I attached it to the middle of the bow with some Tombo Mono Multi glue. I had planned on entering one more project for the Forest Friends category but I have been dealing with ear problems the last couple of weeks and only had time to finish this one. Hopefully it will be good enough to be a winner tonight because once again there is way to much cool stuff being relased and I know I am going having a hard time sticking to my stamping budget. That's it for now. I hope to be back with more stamping projects to share soon. As always thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
