Cupcake Birthday

My friend is an amazing baker of cakes and seems to be able to turn out enough delicious cakes in an evening (after working all day too) to keep a cafè fully stocked. She always laughs when we tell her that. I put together some cupcakes for her celebration - only mine are paper, because I'm not great in the kitchen, paper is my passion.
For the paper patties I experimented while using Stampin' Markers to colour them. That technique is 'Ink To Rubber' and can come in handy when you want to pick out different features on a stamp, like the spots on some of the paper cases. I used mostly pale pastels, but injected a bit more life with a splash of Island Indigo, Elegant Eggplant and Hello Honey.

There's some texture in the background with butterflies of assorted sizes on the larger Fluttering Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. That is why there's a tiny silver punched butterfly as well. These cupcakes are easy to make, there are two styles of icing and two styles of paper patties to mix and match in Cupcake Party, plus the Cupcake Builder Punch helps to punch them out. I did grab Sprinkles of Life for the sentiments on the front, too cute!

Unfortunately, Cupcake Party and the Cupcake Buider Punch have retired from the Stampin' Up!® range now, to be replaced by Sweet Cupcake and the Cupcake Cutouts Framelits, available as a bundle at 10% off and shown on page 23 of the Annual Catalogue.Sprinkles of Life is still available.
What colour cupcake will you make?

Cheers, Rachel
