Welcome to Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons and the Cameo Creations Cupcake Blog Hop. At Cameo Creations Challenges we are all about the Silhouette, all the time! If you have any Silhouette machine, whether it be the original Silhouette SD or the new Silhouette Cameo, join us in on the fun.
If you've come from Kristy's blog you are in the right place. If you would like to start at the beginning, you can head back to Monica's blog. Believe me, you won't want to miss a single stop along the way. Plus, you might just find some bog candy! Then, when you're finished hopping, you can link up your own Silhouette-created cupcake-themed project at Cameo Creations for a chance to win some Bugaboo Digis, some Trendy Twine, or some Spellbinders Nestabilities Large Scalloped Octagons!
Our projects for this hop are all about cupcakes. Here's my project:
I got this fun little cupcake and lizard from Lettering Delights' Leaping Lizards Cut It Set. I used the offset tool in Silhouette Studio to create a shadow of the cupcake's background shape, then, I mirrored it above and welded the two together to create a card. I filled the little lizard and other shapes with digital papers from LD's Leaping Lizards Paper Pack and cut him out using the print and cut feature in Silhouette Studio. I stamped the sentiment, which is from Pink by Design's Oh Boy Stamp Set, on a banner from the 2 Banner Set in the Silhouette Online Store. I embossed the icing with my Cuttlebug Seeing Spots embossing folder, and the banner with my Cuttlebug Herringbone embossing folder. I added some ink and some doodles, and the card was all done!
Oh, and I also popped up the layers of the lizard's eyes with some foam tape so he looks more like a chameleon would look. So cute!
Okay, I have a little BLOG CANDY of my own to share with you!
