For my project, I thought I would do something a little unexpected. Rather than create a more traditional cupcake, I thought I'd create one with some Halloween flair. I used a stamp by Hero Arts and then colored with Copics, focusing on Halloween colors such as green, orange, and purple. I then added some sparkle with Orange Peel Stickles. The cupcake wrapper was done by stamping on Doodlebug paper and then paper piecing. The background paper is also from Doodlebug.
I added some Doodlebug Halloween stickers from my stash for the sentiment "Trick or Treat". As a final touch, I added some lovely purple ribbon and another Halloween button featuring a cute ghost and the word "BOO!".
The recipient can take the button off the card and wear it or put it wherever he or she wants! This is the same idea behind the card I made in this post. I think it's neat that the button not only acts as an embellishment on the card, but it also is a little gift for the receiver.
Hope you enjoyed my cupcake project. Thanks for stopping by! Please hop on over to Theresa's blog next to see what kind of cupcake goodness she has waiting for you on her blog.
