Cupcake thief foiled !! Cupcake Stand SVG

I had to fight off a cupcake thief to take this project photo…. nothing is safe in this house. I have always had a problem with having project photos photobombed by the li’l guy and his menagerie of toys and figures, but this one takes the biscuit.. .. well Chocolate Chocolate Muffin to be precise.  No that is not a typo, it’s a Double Chocolate Muffin….I can’t really blame him for trying to run off with it, they are yummy !

I had this fun little quick n easy  cupcake stand file to  make up, so I grabbed a Muffin the li’l guy made  and used that for my photo… damned if I didn’t see a set of sticky fingers run up and try and grab it right in front of the camera lol.
cup_muffinanywho….  this is a really simple cut file by Rae Carr over at CraftsUPrint… I doubled up my cut to make this gold glitter version… but if you have double sided paper, or are using plain card stock, you won’t need to do that.  I simply attached the two sections with tape  and assembled it.

I have an urge to recreate this in a multi-tiered version to see how it would  work out on a large scale.  It would be a fun one for kids birthday parties, school parties, Family get together, possibly done with a wipe-able platform for multiple use. …. so stay tuned for that one.

Very quick and easy project, simple materials, easy assembly… and definitely a good basic cut to have on hand.

Anyone for Crochet?… crafter humor framed artwork

Once again my  project was directed by the image and sense of humor…  I love it when an image speaks to my inner clown and they get along perfectly  LOL.  Sometimes an image just clicks in your brain and other times you have to sit and stare at it and wait for the ideas to come… This will be a fun one to add to my abandoned Art bucket … maybe.

This is one of the new Releases from Cute As A Button .. this is “Harley”
She is colored with Zig Kurecolor, Chameleon  Pens and a touch of Marvy Detailer, Ranger Distress Pens  and Zig Memory System writer pens.

The edges were inked up using crafts smart ink pads and then she was mounted on  some striped paper “Recollections – Red Denim” from Michaels using Zig Photo Tape.  I just mounted her in an old frame I had laying around.

For anyone struggling to read..it says

“They said I was Anti-Social”

“So I answered an ad on Craigslist, It said ‘WANTED, ladies with killer crochet skills”

It’s a crafters joke and a play on words…  croquet/crochet  for those that ‘don’t get it’caab_nr_halequin_wmd
You can find her in the Cute As A Button store, along with the other New Releases for September.

PhotoBomb – Smile for the birdies!

I loved this project…. not just because I like the card I made, but for the lasting memories associated with it.  My son; who just turned 4, is notorious for photobombing my projects when I am trying to photograph them for the blog.  If it’s not his face suddenly appearing in front of the lens… it’s one of his toys.  Last time I think I shared one of these, I think my project was photobombed by a transformer by the name of “Grimlock”.

This time I  literally got photobombed… by Bomb.. the black bird from the Angry Bird toys currently in happy meals at Macdonalds.

ok and now that he is a happy camper and his toy is now duly admired and photographed like a star…. let’s get to the project.  This is my DT card for Scrapper’s Delights featuring the new Friday Freebie Challenge image Honey Ruler .

Oh and before I forget….If you missed it, you can find the Scrapper’s Delights “Spotlight Series” post right here.  It’s a fun Q&A session with some fab artists/ designers and small craft business owners.  It runs the entire month of June and ends with an End of Series Giveaway… so be sure to subscribe, or follow my page on Facebook for updates.

I stamped my card base (which I believe was from a Recollections set) with a  clear stamp and black archive ink, then ran a swipe of Clear Wink of Stella over some of the flowers. Very subtle, but looks cool when it catches the light
