Stampin' Sisterhood, Pupcake
It's Sunday! Time for another Rubbernecker Stampin' Sisterhood Challenge! Remember, if you play along with us this week, you will have chance to win a FREE STAMP from Rubbernecker and be queened Sunday Sister. And, at the end of each month, all the month's Sunday Sisters will be put in a random drawing to win a STAMP SET from Rubbernecker Stamps! Head on over the the Stampin' Sisterhood's blog for all of the details.
This week, we have an inspiration photo:
This photo made me think of the "pupcakes" I buy from Three Dog Bakery for my dachshund, Sloopy. She absolutely loves them, so I decided to recreate a paper version (even though I am certain Sloopy would have preferred the real thing!).
I stamped the Rubbernecker image of "Dog" (SKU: 569-18) onto X-Press It cardstock. I colored it with Copic markers and then cut around the image with my Cutter-bee scissors. I set this aside for the time being.
I then began construction on the "pupcake". I used the Cricut cartridge "Sweet Treats" to cut the cupcake image. Patterned paper from The Paper Studio, Making Memories, off-white cardstock, and pink cardstock were used to form the various layers on the cupcake. I sponged lightly with Distress Ink Spun Sugar on the candle, Vivid Butterscotch dye on the flame, SeaShells Sandal dye on the cupcake, and Adirondack Sail Boat Blue on the cupcake liner. I highlighted some of the cupcake with Crystal Stickles. I adhered some some bone charms on the cupcake to appear as sprinkles.
I then merged the cupcake with the dog to create my "pupcake".
Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Be sure to visit the Rubbernecker Stampin' Sisterhood Blog for more inspiration, along with all the details for playing along with us this week.
