JUGs 13 ... a Template Challenge

Baja Butterfly Cup Cake

This week at Just Us Girls, the challenge was to use a template and the bonus challenge was "to make it something blue". I checked out all the templates from their Guest Sponsor, Kelleigh Ratzlaff at Digichick Boutique, and decided on using the Cupcake Box. I did buy 2 other templates (couldn't resist) while I was browsing in the wee hours of the morning! You'll probably see those in later posts. As you can tell from the collection of photos, I was pretty chuffed with how it turned out!

Apart from the template, all products are from Stampin' Up!

Butterfly Prints, White Embossed onto Vellum

Another Photo ... just because I could!

Mmm... 2 challenges today and very little housework. I did read somewhere in my web browsing today that, "Housework only comes before stamping in the Dictionary" ... so true!

Here's the 'Recipe' -
Stamps: Big Bold Birthday, Butterfly Prints
Cardstock: Whisper White textured
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Versa Mark
Accessories: Flower Fusion Too, Circle Fire and Ice Rhinestone Brads, Pretties Kit, Valet Ribbon Originals, Baja Breeze DSP, Butterfly Punch, Vellum, White Embossing Powder and Sticky Strip (for the best adhesive to hold your 3D items together)

Happy New Year to you all ... see you in 2010!

Oh this is beautiful! I love that blue...so fresh and pretty with the white! And love the addition of the butterflies and the pin! I really have to get me some beads and pins and make some. I wanted one for my triangle tube, but didn't have the supplies...can you believe that? Thanks for playing our JUGs challenge and for purchasing the templates! Can't wait to see the other ones! Happy New Year!

Bronwyn! My word! This is gorgeous! I have to say, it was the cupcake that first got me browsing Kelleigh's website so I am definitely partial to that one :)I love the combo of vellum, ribbon and hat pin. A beautiful way to make this a "grownup cupcake". Thanks so much for playing with Just Us Girls this week. Be sure and email me for your 40% off coupon code to Kelleigh's store for the next time you are shopping. You can find me at paperdaydream at aol dot com.

This is FABULOUS!! I adore the colors, and the butterfly! Great job!

Just beautiful! LOVE the butterfly but I've always been afraid of pins - maybe I'm afraid I'll poke myself and bleed on my completed project and ruin it!!! LOVE the colors and the flower on top. BTW I went back and purchased 6 more templates once I got the coupon. I'm going to go make another one now!!!

Very cute and nicely done. The little extras are wonderful.. Love the embossed vellum butterfly and pearl hat pin. This is a template I too have looked at. Was it easy to put together?
