Stampin Royalty #165 Cupcakes

Monday again... I hope everyone had a good weekend.  Mine was mostly quiet - everyone else was running in and out doing their thing but for the most part I stayed grounded and got things done.  I got to be lazy after all the cooking I did for the bake sale on Friday.  I still manged to make some peanut butter cookies for my family on Saturday along with pulled pork, and some ham and asparagus quiche on Sunday.  My mom and dad popped in for a visit this afternoon so I am feeling behind - that's what I get for waiting til the last minute to take photos and write up my blog.   Actually I am not a procrastinator - weekends are family time so I usually spend them off line.    A big snow storm is supposed to hit us tomorrow leaving up to 10" - so I figured I should get caught up in the event of a power outage.

I saw the sketch at Stampin Royalty and wanted to play along.  I haven't played around much with these new cupcake dies from Serendipity and they fit perfect with the sketch.  I just turned it on it's side and made my card a little larger - so they'd all fit in a row with a bow.   This is a fun sketch that with endless possibilities.  I just thought what's better than one cupcake?  Well three of course!
I cut the dies from foil paper and popped out the cuts.  Next I laid them on some packaging tape and trimmed around the outer edge.  Next I cut the dies in pink - and put the inserts inside their frames.  The cuts in the wrapper I filled with silver glitter.
