Happy Easter Monday everyone! I hope you enjoyed the holiday weekend with friends and family. I was in charge of dinner yesterday, but the best part wasn’t anything I made…it was the dessert.
Generally, if it doesn’t involve chocolate, I’m not interested, but my Mother-in-law brought a Lemon Meringue Pie and a Coconut Cake, Oh, my goodness…they were to DIE for! Both from scratch, and both were just heavenly.
I guess I couldn’t get desserts outta my head today when I grabbed for the Build-a-Cupcake Punch and coordinating Create-a-Cupcake Stamp Set ! For this card, I have to tell you, the "hardest" part was lining up the cupcake and the greeting so that it was evenly spaced out on the layer (2-3/4 x 4).
The punch, punches out lots of little shapes and you probably want them different colors, so I find it easiest to do my stamping on a narrow, but long scrap of paper. Narrow, so you don’t get gazillions of little punch outs all over. Long, so you have something to hold onto while inserting into the punch. See what I mean:
The same goes for everything in theSpring Occasions Mini Catalog. Be sure you don’t miss out on your favorites!
