Cupcake Challenge at CardzTV


Sweet, sweet Mary is having a card challenge at CardzTV.  She wants cupcake cards.  Me, being a true friend and lover of anything sweet, felt really obliged to make her a chocolate cupcake - card that is.  Hmm, wonder if I could get a real cupcake to her?  Anyway here's my entry.
 I used the cupcake from Smiley Faces.  I had fun using all kinds of tools.  I used my corrugater to make the cupcake wrapper.  I used the Cuttlebug "Divine Swirls" to make the frosting and the surprise inside the card.  I used Glossy Accents to make the swirls, music notes and dots shinny.  The cupcake wrapper and frosting are mounted on foam tape.
 And what does make this cupcake sing?

Well, ice cream of course!  I used the frosting cut again in white for the ice cream.  The bowl is cut from the A Child's Year cartridge.  I removed the spoon from the image.  It was too small!  The cut makes a slit in the bowl which worked out really nice to slide in the ice cream.  I had to trim just a little bit from the bottom of the ice cream so it wouldn't show out the bottom of the bowl.

The papers are from the DCWV Stack #7 and Craft card stock.  The strawberry is a sticker from the Dollar Tree.  I inked the edges with a cocoa "cat's eye pad"  I hope you can tell the difference between the "Glossy Accents" papers on the front and the same paper on the inside that I did not enhance. It's really cloudy here - and snowing again, to the pictures are not the greatest.  Here are the Gypsy screen shots:
I removed the smiley face before cutting the pieces.

 Sorry, this one is so blurry.  I just wanted to show where the bowl was located on ACY; which is on the fourth row down and the ninth column over.
This is the actual image of the bowl.
So, Mary I hope you like this cupcake.  It was fun to make.  Now I have to go and bake something sweet!!LOL
Hugs,
Sue
