Cuppy Gift Set for TETOPCHEF contest

i have to say i am just in LOVE with this new little stamp character from Taylored Expresions. Taylor issued a challenge when the stamps were released to come up with a birthday set of two or more projects using one of the new stamp sets and one of the coordinating Key Ingredients kits (includes patterned paper, solid cardstock, ribbons, glitter and brads). This was just so much fun to do!! i used Sweet Celebrations and the girl Key Ingredients and made a card, gift bag and acetate gift box:

here are more details for you:

i cut the papers into strips and punched a couple with border punches and ran one thru the cuttlebug and layered them. i stamped the little cuppies and ice cream cone in memento tuxedo black on PTI stamper select white cardstock and colored with copics. i added a few details with spica glitter pens. the cherry and candle flame have glossy accents for added dimension. i cut each image out with my nesties and rubbed the edges with ink using my foam blender. i added stickles (of course) around the edges of the images and along the border. the acetate box is actually a box that i got a stamp set in from PTI (Paper Trey Ink).

Here's some close ups of the cutie patootie little images:

Pezzy loves the Cuppies too - i had to stamp some for her to color while i worked. when daddy came home she had to show him "Cuppies" up on the breakfast bar :)

i can't wait to see wat Taylor comes up with next.....Christmas Cuppies?? Playin' in the snow Cuppies???
