Sweet Tooth Anniversary Blog Hop for CCC


Welcome to the Cupcake Craft Challenge 1st Birthday blog hop!

If you have just come from Kathrin's blog then you are in the right place! If you just started here on my blog, then you might want to go here and start from the beginning. There are 14 design team blogs in the blog hop and each one has some gorgeous candy to be won--but to be eligible to win candy on any of the blogs, you need to play along with our challenge this week!

Not only will you then be able to win the DT's blog candy, but also have a chance of winning some fantastic prizes that our sponsors have provided to help us celebrate our 1st birthday! You can see a list of the sponsors and goodies on the CCC blog post kicking off our celebration today!

The CCC Challenge for everyone this week is super simple: "Something Sweet!" with a bonus option of using a cupcake. I know that all of you have a stamp somewhere in your collection that has something sweet on it...maybe candy? Cake? Popsicles? And I'm sure a lot of you even have the bonus of a cupcake! So please take the time and play along with us this week! It's a fabulous week to play!

If you have already seen the list of sponsors, you will have noticed that Paper Makeup Stamps was on there! That's the fabulous stamping company that I'm blessed to be a Design Team member for. Katie (the fabulous owner) generously donated TWO of her products which feature something sweet--one of them being a fabulous stamp set called Sprinkles and Cherries. My card today uses three of the stamps from that delicious set: The cupcake, the candle and the birthday sentiment!

My color combination comes from this week's Paper Makeup Stamps Monday Challenge. Since many of the PMS DT are playing along with the CCC challenge this week, we all have used our Monday Challenge set by the marvelous Meli in our cards...she went with a great color combination of Green, Blue and Black! I had this paper which worked perfectly with the type of card I wanted to make AND the color theme!

I cut and popped up my cupcake--after first inserting my cut out candle. I just made a tiny slit in the cupcake's frosting and slid the candle in. I used some sparkly Waterfall Stickles to make my frosting even tastier!

Card Details
Stamps:
Sprinkles and Cherries (PMS)
Paper: CS-Old Olive and Basic Black (SU), Blue (Paper Studio), White (GP); DP: from a $1 paper pack

Accessories & Tools: Peony Nesties, Stickles, lt. blue double stitched grosgrain ribbon, dimensionals, "Swiss Dots" embossing folder, Cuttlebug

And now let me tell you what I'm offering as MY blog candy:

TWO randomly drawn commenters (of this post) will get their choice of ONE of the BRAND NEW PMS August Release Fairies in Digi Form! If you want to see what your options will be, just check them out --> HERE <-- But remember, to be qualified to win you have to have participated in our CCC challenge this week! You have until 8pm Saturday August 22nd to enter any of our CCC related contests this week. All the winners will be announced on the Cupcake blog on Monday August 24th.

Good luck with your sweet entries!

Once you've left me some love (and gotten yourself entered into the drawing), hop on over to the lovely Liza's Blog and see what eye candy (and BLOG CANDY!) she has for you!
