Yummy Bakery-Shop Cupcakes

One of the highlights of the Stampin Up! convention this summer was winning the brand spanking new Crazy for Cupcakes stamp set. I kept in on my stamping desk for several weeks, just fondling it from time to time and basking in the thrill of my new set.

Taylor Vanbruggen's Cupcake Challenge #22 gave me the inspiration to break open the seal of my new set and try to do it justice.

Here's the recipe and how I assembled the bakery window:

  • Stamps:Crazy for Cupcakes and Riveting (retired). Cupcakes stamping wheel on the envelope.

  • Paper: Apricot Appeal, Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, Pink Pirouette, and Sweet Always designer paper.

  • Ink: Regal Rose, Pink Pirouette, Timber Brown Staz-on, Close to Cocoa.

  • Misc.: 1-1/4" circle punch, 1/2" circle punch, Scallop circle punch, Scallop edge punch, paper piercing tool, 5/8" striped grosgrain ribbon in Tangerine Tango, Dazzling Diamonds, aqua painters, Cuddlebug embossing folder, and Liquid Applique.

Start with a 4" x 1-3/4" piece of the Sweet Always designer paper. Punch one of the long sides with the scallop edge punch and score the other long side at 1/2". Cut a 4-1/2" by 1-1/4" piece of Pink Pirouette paper and use the scallop edge punch on it.

I made the Pink Pirouette piece longer than the Sweet Always piece so I could loosely glue them together, line up the scallops and trim the excess.

You should have a combined piece that looks like this.

Glue the scored 1/2" of the striped paper to the back of the two-sided designer paper.

Put Stampin' Dimensionals under the window dressing to give it a little lift (but not so much that it wouldn't fit in the envelope).

All assembled, the bakery window looks like this.

A little dab will do – paint just inside the lines of the cupcakes with Liquie Applique, sprinke a little Dazzling Diamonds glitter in the Liquid Applique as you heat it up with the heat gun.

Here's our delicacy again.
