Hi friends! It's Sunday and that means time for a new challenge at The Paper Players. This week the wonderful and talented Laurie is our hostess with a theme challenge: Christmas Baking.
I have very little in the way of baking themed stamps, in fact, this cupcake set is just about it! My first thought was that cupcakes aren't very Christmas-y, but a Pinterest search for Christmas cupcakes proved me wrong. Wow, some of them are like little works of art! Anyway, I dressed my cupcake up in some Christmas paper and adorned it with holly leaves. My custom sentiment was created using three different stamp sets. Finally, a few pearls colored with a red Sharpie and some Wink of Stella on the frosting added a bit of shine.
I am also playing along with two other challenges today. I was inspired by the red plaid and white dish ware in the inspiration photo at Fusion, and at Addicted to CAS the Code Word is Sweets.
