January Papertrey Bloghop and Cupcake Tuesday

It is time for another Papertrey Bloghop.

This month we were to challenge ourselves to use a Papertrey stamp set that has yet to see ink or even one that might be collecting a little dust!
Unfortunately I have a lot of sets that have never seen ink so this challenge was perfect for me. It is also time for my monthly cupcake post too so I decided to combine them both. This is what I came up with.

The set I chose to finally use is Background Basics Botanical's. I have had this set for awhile now so I am happy that I finally got a chance to use it.
The cupcake card was made using this SVG file. The base was cut from Sweet Blush Cardstock. The top was embossed with the Sizzix dots embossing folder. The cupcake liner was cutout of Lemon Tart Cardstock then I stamped the images from the Botanicals set with Versamark ink and embossed it with white embossing powder. The sentiment is from this digi set and was printed on Vintage Cream Cardstock then cut out with a circle Nestabilities Die then matted on Lavender Moon scalloped circle. The number 1 was cut with SCAL using the Century font. A piece of white baby pom pom ribbon from this Etsy shop was added to look like piping. A Lavender Moon Satin Ribbon and a Lemon Tart button finish it off.

I also made a matching cupcake wrapper using this SVG file I stamped and embossed the same image from the Botanicals set on the wrapper to match the card.
The cupcakes are Banana Chocolate Chip with Cream Cheese Frosting. I added some chocolate syrup and a fresh banana for decoration. Both Rich and Emilia love them!

That's all for now. You can see the list of the other participants on Nicole's blog. I am looking forward to seeing what everyone else has come up with now and hope to get some inspiration that will help me use some of my other uninked sets too. As always thanks for stopping by.

pattylt said...

Oh NO! I don't own Botanicals and now I want it! Love this so much. It is incredible! Quick question: Do you cut first then stamp and emboss or stamp and emboss then cut? Sounds silly but I just wonder how others do this? (I stamp and emboss first but sometimes the design doesn't end up where I want it.) So cute!
