A Treat From Your Mummy

Hi Stampers!

This week I combined my Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Project along with my Design Team Project for The Cutting Cafe. This week at the Cafe we were able to use any Halloween file of our choice. Well...I decided to use TWO of Regina's awesome files for my project :)

This week for the Loves Rubberstamps challenge you can chose to do a TRICK, which is to create a card with an interactive or movable element - like a slider card, swing card, viewmaster card...etc OR you could choose to do a TREAT - which is to create a Halloween Treat Holder. Now...Can you guess which I chose?

A TREAT!! Who WOULDN'T want to do a treat because that way you can munch on some goodies while you craft - LOL!!

Here is my project...


I decided to use the Cupcake Holder File  and I paired it with the Mind Your Mummy Set. I think they make a cute duo :) I was going to try and get this posted yesterday but I had to wait until I had time to bake the cupcakes first. If I would have baked them ahead of time...you would be looking at an EMPTY cupcake holder the way my husband and children inhale them! LOL!

Here is a closer peek at my Mummy Treat...



I covered the Cupcake Holder with Designer papers from the Doodlebug Halloween parade paper pack. I think this is my FAVORITE Halloween paper right now :) The tag is one that comes in the Mind Your Mummy Set and I just added a spider that I made with my Die-Namics Die Spider Web Set . My cupcake decorating skills need some work - LOL! I forgot to put my tip INSIDE my piping bag before I put all the frosting in it so I had to try and hold it on while I squeezed the bag. A little bit of a nightmare - LOL!

Here is a closer peek at my scary Mind Your Mummy Card...


I loved this file and it comes together so easily once you remember to print the wrapping diagram :) I love that this comes with different sentiments that you can use on the Mummy Wrap and they are already on the strip for you. I inked all my edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Walnut Stain. I added some red sparkly bling for the eyes and the little patches are part of the set. Now I HAD to add this adorable little witch Elphie from Saturated Canary. The look on her face is perfect...just like this Mummy has just snuck up on her - LOL! I colored her with copics. Because she is a little witch I wanted her hair to look a little magical so I added some doodle dots :)

Well...I better get this posted as I am late as it is! Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to play along in our Loves Rubberstamps Challenge and do a TRICK or a TREAT!

Also ... check out the Inspirational Blog Post on The Cutting Cafe Blog to see what my fellow Design team members created for their Halloween Project! If you leave a comment on the post - each week Regina draws one lucky person who left a comment and they win THREE FREE FILES of their choice! How AWESOME is that?!?!

PS...As soon as I was done with my pictures...my husband came in and was like HEY are you done with that cupcake?!? And then he inhaled it - LOL...so the poor mummy cake is no more!

Have a great day all!
