Be Inspired #24: Food & The Cutting Cafe

It's Wednesday and you know that means it is time for several items on this blog! Be sure to keep scrolling so that you see my Flutter By Wednesday card and my PPS card.

This week The Cutting Cafe sponsored our Wednesday Be Inspired Challenge. Regina, owner of
The Cutting Cafe, sent the design team some of her digital images to use this week. Really cute cupcake images and tons of saying as well. What is really neat is that she has backgrounds and all kinds of cool stuff to accent the image. If you've never been by the blog/store, make time to check it out!

For this week's challenge, I had 2 ideas and this one took the cake - Hahaha!! Pun totally intended!! Hope you laughed!!

I used the mini images and made cupcake piks!! Only 1 chocolate image because in a world of vanilla, YOU are the chocolate! Each image was colored twice and then cut out so they could be paper toled. The base image was punched and layered onto a scalloped circle that has been embossed with Swiss Dots using my Cuttlebug.

I used my Prismacolors and baby oil to color all my images. For this one, I went back and highlighted the dots with my white gel pen.

I used a small Prima flower and some little gems to jazz up this sweet cupcake!


Who could resist a cupcake with hearts? Mine has accents of my Spica clear glitter pen added.


And finally, the chocolate one. He has no embellishments, but does chocolate really need any?

And this is how I attached each toothpick to cupcake tag.
Thanks so much for spending some time with me today!! It means the world to me. I read each and every comment and I just want you to know how much you bless me.
Be sure to visit the Cuttlebug Challenge blog to see what the rest of the team created for this week's Be Inspired: Food Challenge. I hear that Danni has another tutorial this week and I know there is a really great prize as well! Be sure and load up YOUR creation combining the cuttlebug and food into Mr. Linky!! I can't wait to see what you come up with!
Have a beautiful day!! And keep scrolling!!
