A Mojo Monday cupcake for Easter Sunday

I hope that wherever you are, you’re enjoying some rest and relaxation on this long weekend.

Now that all the housework has been finished (for now) and family together time has been enjoyed, DH and I have each got a little “me” time. I’ve invested my “me” time today, in crafting of course. I returned to the Mojo Monday sketch that I had a play with on Tuesday to see whether I could better it. This was the sketch:

And this is my second take on it:

Stamp sets: Create a Cupcake (W121915 or C121982), Cupcakes (113121)
Cardstock: Basic Black (121688), Very Vanilla (106550)
Ink: Soft Suede (115657), Versamark (102283)
DSP: Mocha Morning Specialty (122366)
Punches:  Scallop Trim Border (118402), Cupcake (121807)
Other: Black EP (109133)
Tools: Big Shot (113439), Heat Tool (110197)
Non-SU: Circle dies

The A6 landscape card of Basic Black was matted with one of the co-ordinating Mocha Morning papers. Another, smaller piece of different co-ordinating paper was edged on one side with a plain strip of Basic Black card and on the other with a strip of the same card punched with the Scallop Trim Border. This layer was adhered direct to the card front. Large Circles were die cut from Basic Black and Very Vanilla card. The birthday sentiment was stamped onto the Vanilla circle with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Black EP. The Cupcake wheel was rolled above and below the sentiment using Soft Suede ink. These circles were adhered direct to the card front. A wide strip of the black flocked Mocha Morning paper was trimmed to a banner and popped up on dimensionals on the card front. Using the Cupcake Builder punch, the cupcake case and the cherry were punched from the papers used on the card front (adhered first to scraps of card for extra strength) and the frosting was punched from Very Vanilla card. The cupcake was assembled and popped up on the card front.

For the inside, a Very Vanilla  insert was wheeled with Cupcakes and the the sentiment stamped, both with Soft Suede ink.
