PKS Challenge - "Potluck"

Hello and welcome to Nonna's Craft Corner!
It's time for another fun challenge over at Peachy Keen Stamps and WOW...have we got a fun one for you this week!  Before I share my project with you, let me give you the details about our challenge:

Create a 3D object of your choice following the theme Potluck. Ever gone to a potluck and had no clue what a dish might be? Here is your chance to make an item to give a heads up of what your dish is. It could be toppers, placards, a banner, or anything else that sparks your creativity! Or maybe you have an awesome way to display your dish, that would work too. Use your amazing creativity to make a run with this challenge!!
We'll be awarding "TOP PEACH" to the player who uses their Peachy Keen Stamps this week and  our two runner ups will receive a spiffy badge to display on their blog!
- Design must be new

Okay, those that know me, know that I am not a cook. I am not a baker. I am not a pastry chef.  However, I happen to know of an awesome little cupcake shoppe and I am pretty handy with paper, stamps and ink.  So...after my shopping trip to said cupcake shoppe, I got busy with those fun stamps, ink and's what happened.....

(click on photo to enlarge)

Materials Used:
* Scrumptious cupcakes from GiGi's Cupcakes
*Cupcake toppers - PKSC-21
* Bakery - PK-1335
* Clouds on card - My Creative Time
*Twine - Trendy Twine
* Banner - Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons
* Copic Markers

Don't those cupcakes look yummy?
It was all I could do to wait until I took pictures before biting into that "Hunka Chunka Banana Love" cupcake!  Let me tell was worth the wait - YUM!

To make the toppers for my cupcakes, I used the label stamp from Peachy Keen's September Stamp Club set.  After coloring them with my Copic Markers, I colored a few toothpicks then just glued the label onto the toothpick.

The banner is from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons and I attached it to my cake plate using glue dots.

I also made a little card to place in front of my cupcakes using the fun "Sweet Shop" stamp.  I colored up the bakery with my Copic Markers and added a little banner to the window for fun. The clouds are from the "Stitched Cartoon Clouds Die" from My Creative Time".

And, just so you know, this Mojito Cupcake was my absolute favorite ♥

That about wraps up my project for this week's challenge.  Don't forget to stop by Peachy Keen Stamps to see what the other Designers have put together for your inspiration (I happen to know there are some awesome creations for you to see).  I hope to see your Potluck creation linked up with us very soon!

Until next time,
