Tuesday with Cupcake

This is the project I've created for my Tuesday spot on the Whimsical Ink Sorority Blog for Queen Kat Designs Blog Hop.   If you'd like to do the Hop and see all the amazing creations from the DT, just start here and follow the links.

This week the DT were tasked with creating a 3D project for the Hop.  Although we are meant to use some of the stamps that have been around for a while, I just couldn't resist using the June WIS Kit for mine (shhh.. don't tell the Queen!) - well, you know what a rebel I am !! 

This adorable mermaid is called Cupcake, isn't she a real sweetie?  I love her sitting on top of her yummy cupcake and the kit comes complete with some great sentiments too.

I decided to make a 'stationery set in a box' as a gift for a friend who has a birthday coming up soon.   I'll be making a set of cards with which to fill the inside - together with a few matching gift tags - to complete the gift before I give it to her.  This picture shows the inside of the box and all the little sections to hold various things, including the tiny pocket to hold postage stamps at the bottom right.

I stamped Cupcake Mermaid twice, coloured the images with Promarkers and Copics and cut them out using plain nestabilities dies, round for the front and oval for the inside image.  I then matted the image layers on to scalloped layers cut from white card with more nesties then coloured with Promarkers to exactly match the colours on the image.  A little Glossy Accents gives the bubbles texture and added interest.

The box was created using two 12x12 sheets of doubled sided heavy weight paper and is based on a tutorial on the Split Coast Stampers website.  The decorative edges were cut with a Martha Stewart border punch and the ribbon, flowers and half beads were from my stash.

Inside, Cupcake is attached to the front of a post-it note holder - I also stamped the tiny cupcake with candle image from the WIS Kit, coloured it and applied inside the cover of the holder as a little extra surprise when the holder is opened. 

Thank you for visiting today, I hope you've enjoyed seeing today's project.
