More Crazy for Cupcakes

This is the same Treat bag in the Class but I didn't add any ribbon for a handle.... The Base is Brocade Blue and the Junior Vanity papers. I paper pieced the cupcake again and added it to a rectangle nestie. The velcro strip was added at the bottom, so the bag can be full of goodies..... Ideal for a Birthday party bag.
The base card for this one is Rose Red, which matches the Junior Vanity papers so well, I wouldn't normally use that colour on a boy card but HEY! The stand was cut of the cupcakes this time and coloured in using the SU Markers. I added Dazzling Diamonds for the frosting. The numbers are Typeset Numbers on Page 64 and the circle Birthday greeting is from the Starring You on P75 and believe it or not but its only £11.95 for 4 stamps! The star brad is from the hodgepodge set. The whisper white panel was embossed using a forgotten Big Shot Texture plate, which sort of matches the paper.......I had put these to one side as the embossing is nothing like the cuttlebug embossing folders, but I brought a Multi Purpose Platform for my Big Shot and They now work fantastic using the TAB 1 part left down. This is whisper white cardstock......Try it if you have one.
This is the inside with a strippy blower.
This did take a little while to do but it was raining outside so ideal. The base is So Saffron, then textured whisper white using the big shot texture plate again. (Before you say it NO I am NOT going to be collecting all the texture plates - I just happen to have these!!!! Hee!)
I stamped the balloons and paper pieced them again. I stamped the stars from the Starring You stamp set in So Saffron all over and then paper pieced the large star, glitter the medium one and coloured in with So Saffron the diddie star.

I stamped the circle of friendship stamp on So Saffron paper from the Junior Vanity pack and used the circle hodge podge frame and 2 star brads to finish.

This is the inside of the star card.

Phew! What a long post and I have forgotten to do the Blog Candy - Sorry - Tomorrow definately.
