Tic-Tac-Toe with Cupcakes



Today’s the day—you can purchase the Taylored Expressions stamp sets and other bundles and treats revealed this week. I’m thrilled with how the card I created with my For the Love of Cupcakes set (one of the sets in the Whimsical Wishes line I design) turned out. Dawn’s color challenge was just the perfect thing for a cupcake card—bright pink, cream, chocolate and kraft. Sounds just like a cupcake fresh from the bakery to me! While blogging recently I discovered Heather Pulvirenti’s creations-WOW! Heather’s got talent...and this one caught my eye. I thought this layout combined with cupcakes would make a great tic-tac-toe card. I also got a little braver with sewing card layers this time and stitched the game board and borders and even the inside!! But the greatest little find was the QuikKutz magnetic sheets I bought at a local scrapbooking store. I can’t believe that four 4”x12” sheets were just 5.99 CDN! Don’t you think that’s a deal? I punched magnets with my SU ½” circle punch for the backs of the cupcakes, which are coloured with copics and paper-pieced with retired SU designer paper Loves Me, and larger circles using the ¾” punch for the playing zone. It's hard to see the cream patterned polka dot paper used for the cupcake liners on the chocolate frosted cupcakes. I made a home for the spare cupcake on the inside of the card using the same oval nesties I used for the sentiment on the front of the card.
I hope this gives you a little inspiration today and that you head right on over to the Taylored Expressions store and load up with cupcakes and other ‘beary special’ stamps!
