Allsorts - Week 370 - Gingham Style

It's a fun challenge right now, over at Allsorts. Chosen by our Kathleen, the theme is 'Gingham Style'.

This is my offering:
I used:

- 3.75" x 3.75" square white card blank

- snippet of SU's 'Certainly Celery' card stock, trimmed and glued in place

- snippet of fawn gingham paper from the Wild Rose Studio's 'Gorgeous Ginghams' paper pack, trimmed then glued on top of the green layer of card

- the cupcake, cherry and leaf plus sentiment were all stamped onto a snippet of white card using Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink and stamps from the Hero Arts ''Cupcakes' set

- coloured the cupcake and cherry with leaf using Pro markers then trimmed right round them leaving a little white border

- punched out the sentiment using SU's 'Large Oval' label punch

- popped the sentiment onto the card first and then stuck the cupcake just slightly overlapping it in one corner

- final touch, three shiny red Josy Rose nail heads in the top left corner

As a final, final touch, I added Glossy Accents to the cherry after taking the photo, but didn't retake a piccie.

I checked the date of production on the cupcakes stamps packaging and they go right back to 2008. Possibly one of my earliest clear stamp set purchases.

Scrummy! I love that cupcake stamp. Funny how things go in and out of fashion, it may be 8 years old but it looks totally 2016. The moral of that is, never throw anything away....

Me again Di, meant to explain there will be a lack of visits or Playground activity from me for the next few weeks, being 'sent' to Italy to stay with an old school friend to recoup a little ahead of our holiday later in the month which conveniently starts there.

Super card Di, love that cupcake and it looks great against the gingham background. Hope Parsnip isn't too upset that he won't be able to wave his placard outside Hobbycraft xx
