Hey There Cupcake

I've been wanting to take part in the Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge forever and I finally got around to it this afternoon. I had some extra time when my son decided to take marathon naps today. Yay! I had so much fun with this sketch since it gave me the chance to use one of my favourite stamp sets, Hey There Cupcake. I love the variety this set provides and I should really use it more often. It's hard not to own more than one cupcake set though. Taylor's For the Love of Cupcakes sure tempts my wallet! I'm sure I'll own it someday. ;)

I distressed the papers with scissors, then picked my cupcake parts and decorations. I coloured them in with Copics and chalks and assembled them. I punched circles for their back drop and the reason why I didn't use three of the same colours is because I wanted the centre cupcake to be orange and it would've blended in too much. Lastly I picked a sentiment I hadn't used before and decided to try something new. I haven't seen anyone do this with their tag but that doesn't mean it hasn't been done. I'd definitely give credit where it's due if I was casing it but I honestly haven't seen it done anywhere. Feel free to let me know if you've done it yourself or have seen it done anywhere specific!

Cute! Love that you separated the top and bottom of the cupcake. I just purchased this set and I hadn't thought to do that yet.
