Fusion

Who couldn't be inspired by this photo?  I wanted to dive right into it, those cupcakes look divine!  Fusion French Cupcakes provided a full afternoon of inspiration for me yesterday =]


First up?  Of course, the cupcake!  The script print on the vase brought to mind one of my favorite embossing folders.  This time I used a lovely leftover of watercolor paper which frames my little cupcake perfectly.  The cardstock is Vintage Cream, from PTI, which works perfectly with WC paper.  Paper Smooches dies  [flowers & scalloped circle] and stamps for the little "fondant" flowers, and sentiment.  That wonderful little cupcake is a Bitsy from Basic Grey called Cakes - I do hope it's still available as it has many ways of decorating the cupcake that I think you'll love, and a sentiment that reads:  "Keep calm, eat a cupcake!"  My philosophy, exactly =]

                   In culinary school, we spent many days working with fondant to create flowers
 [and fishing lures, in my case - see Tom's hat a few posts back in A Little Fishy =]
 

Next up?  The sketch!

Michele, this is truly the MOST beautiful and realistic cupcake I have ever seen on a card. I am imagining you creating this like it is a real cupcake--gorgeous and when we get together you might teach me how to decorate cupcakes beautifully like this!
