New Crafty Boots Challenge: Food Glorious Food!

Hey all, it's Monday :( Back to work today after a super halfterm, but here's something to cheer you all up - it's that time again - time for another Crafty Boots Challenge - and this one is a special one because i got to pick the theme, which this fortnight is 'Food Glorious Food', so we want to see all your food related crafty creations!!

And here is my DT offering using the fab 'Crazy For Cupcakes' stampset:

I made this card for my cousins daughter Summer who turns one this week!! To start with i stamped the cupcake image (using 'Basic Black' ink) onto some 'Whisper White' card and then drew around the outline with 'Melon Mambo' and 'Regal Rose' 'Stampin' Write Markers'. I coloured in the sprinkles using 'Wisteria Wonder' and 'Melon Mambo' markers and placed a few 'Basic Pearls' on to add a little bling! I stamped out the candle and the flame again onto some more 'Whisper White' card, coloured them in using 'Wisteria Wonder' and 'Daffodil Delight' 'Stampin' Write Markers', cut them out and then raised them using 'Dimensionals' to create a 3D effect!! I glued the cupcake image onto a piece of 'Regal Rose' card and then placed the sentiment (also from the 'Crazy for Cupcakes' set) inked in 'Melon Mambo', mounted onto some 'Melon Mambo' card and then glued underneath the cupcake image! All of this was glued onto a square of 'Wisteria Wonder' card and along the left of the image i a column of shapes punched out using the 'Word Window' punch (from 'Whisper White', 'Regal Rose' and 'Melon Mambo' card.) This was mounted onto a larger square of 'Melon Mambo' card and then all placed onto a square 'Whisper White' cardbase!

I hope Summer loves this card and has a fabulous 1st birthday!!!
