Joyful Hearts December Blog Hop

Welcome to the Joyful Stars December Blog Hop. This hop features Current Close to my Heart Products by 11 fabulous and talented Consultants.

If you've come here from Marie's Blog you're on the right track. If you just happened upon my blog, that's fine, just continue from here and when you get back to me, you know you've seen them all.

Please leave us a little lovin' in our comments. We Love hearing from you! *Ü*

This month we are using products from the NEW Seasonal Expressions. 
The stamp set I am using is the December Stamp of the Month called "Cutie Pie". There are 11 fabulous stamps in this set. With a $50 order, you not only can get this stamp set for only $5.00, but you can choose any "C" and "D" size stamp sets from the ANNUAL CATALOG for only $10.00 each. And, as many as you want.

I used The new Heartstrings paper pack. Along with the new Hearts embossing folder, and the Pixie Extra Thick Twine. There is even a glittery heart on top of the cupcake from the Stuck on You Puffies.

I first stamped all of the images using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. This is the perfect ink to use with alcohol markers.
I did some paper piecing on the cupcake stand. I wanted to tie it in with the background paper. 

The flowers were punched from the same paper and a little glitter cardstock.

For the cupcake itself, I used our New fabulous ShinHan Alcohol Markers

Now hop on over to Helen's Blog and see what fabulous goodies she has to share with you.
