Happy Friday!  Today is my Crazy 4 Cards Class and I'm so excited to share the Create a Cupcake Stamp Set with everyone!  We'll be making 4 fun cards and a gift tag!  Can't wait!!

I love when people think outside of the box and come up with creative ways to use our punches.  On one of the blogs I love, I saw where a fellow demonstrator, Carrie Gaskin, used the Build a Cupcake Punch to make little purses!  I consider myself creative, but never would have thought to do this!!  It is so cute and I just had to CASE it!  (CASE=copy and share everything!)  Here's my take on this idea:

I did my handles a little differently because I don't have the 3/4" circle punch - which is now on my wish list!  I used the oval punch to make the purse flaps, embossed the melon mambo one, punched out a circle with the 1/2" circle punch, and then punched around the circle with the scalloped oval punch.  The sentiment and little jewels are just the perfect touch!

Products Used:
Paper:  Melon Mambo, Whisper White, Basic Black
Stamps:  Bring on the Cake, Create a Cupcake
