I believe inspiration comes from everywhere. For me, it comes down to the wire when I have to come up with something, but when it clicks…I go full force and by the time I’m done, the kitchen is a wreck but worth it all.
My good friend Hazel gave me a call last week asking if I could make some buttercream cupcakes for a Heritage Makers workshop (www.SentimentalStories.net). Unfortunately my family and I were under the weather so I told I had to see how I was feeling by the weekend. After taking many multiple meds, and lots of sleep I was ready to create. After all the kids were in bed and all the toys were put away, I started to bake the cupcakes. I thought to myself how easy these cupcakes would be..all I had to do was bake and make the buttercream and swirl it up! Not that easy if I was out of powdered sugar! I’ve never been in such a bind. I even went online searching for powdered sugar substitutes (which by the way is did not work for me!!!).
I didn’t want to disappoint my good friend, so I had marshmallow fondant on hand and I decided to create something new.
I still can believe I made these! Everytime I look at this pick, I get goosebumps because they look…”sooo cool!!!” I’ve seen pictures of cupcakes with embossing, but I never had the chance to try it. I’m hooked!
I use to be a stamp crafter a few years ago, but I found photoshop to be my true passion when making cards. So, through the years, I haven’t figured out what to do with my stamp collection…now I do!
