How Much is That Cupcake in the Window?

This past week I've had both computer issues and then a power outage. Add in being super busy getting ready for my first new catalog event, and that equals a very neglected blog.! Sorry about the lack of posts. There's only a few more days left to order from the Occasions Catalog. I'm really glad I added the Another Great Year stamp set to my collection! It won't be available after June 1st...(along with many other great items). Here's a cute window card I made a while back using the little cupcake image.
I was so excited creating this card, but once completed it was an epic fail...I didn't have any SU! Window Sheets on hand, and instead created the window using a transparency sheet. After all my hard work creating this card it wouldn't stand up because the transparency sheet I used was too light weight & flimsy. In order to make it work, I had to alter my design.
I prefer the original design, but at least this way it stands on it's own. Note to self: Put Window Sheets on my next order! Here's a closer peak at the water colored cupcakes.
The little awning was created using the Word Window Punch and it adhered using mono adhesive at the top and Stampin' Dimensionals at the bottom. The added detail at the window frame was created using the Needlepoint Embossing Folder...which sadly is on the retiring list. Use it a lot to add a little extra detail.

Hope your weekend is a sweet one!

I love the cupcakes in the window card! What fun! Very clever fix, too, so it will stand up on its own. Nice job coloring the flowers.
