HOliday Sweets Challenge Reminder for {Cupcake Inspirations}🥧

Hello friends!  Hope you had a wonderful weekend!  I first would like to say a huge thank you to those that have mentioned they were going to send out a Christmas card for Danny (mentioned in previous post below) and also sharing the newspaper article.  I think it will be so exciting to see how many cards he receives and from where around the world!🎅❤  I think this will help bring him much needed cheer!

Today I have a fun creation with more inspiration for our “Holiday Sweets” challenge over at the {Cupcake Inspirations} blog!  So I hope that you will drop on over, check out the inspirations from the rest of the sweeties and come share your delicious Holiday Sweets creations with us!

I’m still in a “cookie” mode and looking forward to making some traditional Christmas cookies in my own kitchen soon…so I’ve played around with a recent card kit I’ve received:

I’ve created a cozy and festive table scene full of delicious Christmas cookie treats using several products from an older Christmas card kit and a few other items.  First of all, the cookies from that kit were super fun to put together!  It comes with all the dies and stamps you need to decorate a (craft) cookie with!

I started my card with an A2 sized top folding kraft cardstock piece and used some of the Winter Cabin Papers to create my scene for the “table” and background. The cookies were all created with the stamps, dies and some paper from the kit, but I added some White EP for the frosting and some red Nuvo Crystal Drops for decoration.  There was a felt circle cut in the kit that I cut off to attach over my “table” to place the cookies on.  I also heat embossed the sentiment from the stamp set in the kit with Raven Sparkle EP and die cut with a banner from my stash.  I went around the edges of it with some white Ink.

The hot cocoa mug came from a previous card kit that I stamped, colored and cut out to place on my table scene.  I took the whole scene and layered it over a black piece of cardstock included in the kit and added it to my card base.

Here’s a closer look at those cookies!  You can see that the die cuts have cut the images out right up next to the image line.  I also took a glue pen and added some chunky style glitter from my stash to make some of the cookies look like they’re sugar coated.  You can also see the sparkle from the EP in my sentiment. 

Probably hard to see the bit of shimmer inside the cocoa mug and on the candy cane that I covered with my glitter brush pen, but it’s all shimmery and sparkly in person.  I colored up the mug with my Copic markers and fussy cut out the image.

I hope that you’ve enjoyed my cozy Christmas cookie scene here and are inspired to pull out your favorite Holiday sweets to play along with us too!  Please be sure to stop by the {Cupcake Inspirations} Challenge Blog to see more inspiration from the DT Sweeties!  Looking forward to seeing your creations there!

  1. Oh this “almost” puts me in the mood to bake – but just a little early as I want the cookies to be “fresh” and still have some left when son comes home for Christmas. If I make them now hubby has a sweet tooth especially for cookies. Ok I admit I do as well. This card is awesome, so much detail – love the chunky glitter on the cookies. Great inspiration dear friend.

  2. Yikes, those cookies are making me hungry! What a darling card, and it really does look like a tray full of Christmas yumminess! Great job, love this a lot!!! I baked a bit last week, and got in the mood, so in a few weeks, I’ll go all out. It will be just me and DH here, but we bake for others, so I’ll make up several huge trays. Thanks for sharing and inspiring me to create (and bake)!
