Cupcakes for men and other occasions

Happy Friday the 13th - eek!

Do you struggle for ideas for male cards like I do?  What about other occasions? If you have the Create a Cupcake stampset and/or co-ordinating punch then this card can be made by you in no time... I have to admit that I CASE'd it from the web, in fact if you google this stampset you will get lots of alternative uses for it and I have adapted the ideas slightly.

The base is Calypso Coral from the new In Colours, and I have co-ordinated the hot air ballon using a 1 3/8" circle punch and the new ruffled ribbon (stuck with red sticky tape) along with Daffodil Delight cardstock.  I've run the balloon through the stripes embossing folder before adding the red tape on the back to stick the ribbon. 

Can you see that the basket is created from the cupcake 'base' stamp inked with Chocolate Chip.  The clouds are the top of the cupcake punched from Whisper White.  The background is Bashful Blue run through the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.  Finally the sentiment in Calypso Coral punched out of Whisper White using the Word Window punch.

Try using DSP instead of cardstock and see what you can come up with...
