Cupcake Cards


Has everyone had a good week? I've loved watching the special comic relief Great British Bake Off episodes, they have a great message for wannabe crafters of any description i think - its not about being perfect its about having a go and most of all having fun!

I love baking, its a lovely way to unwind and get creative and the results are almost always delicious even if they're a little 'abstract' in appearance :) I put together a little collection of designs inspired by cupcakes recently, the card versions made it into my shops this week although there may be other things like tea towels in the works... i'll keep you updated!


Cupcake Cards


There are a couple for cupcake lovers in particular... 'you had me at cupcake',



and this one, a 'cupcake lover's weekly planner'. We all deserve a little treat on a sunday right? :)



The other two at 'star baker' cards, inspired by the award of 'star baker' that goes to one of the Great British Bake Off contestants each week. I don't think you need to know anything about the programme to appreciate the message though!

The first comes complete with bunting,




The other is simpler. I thought i'd get both printed and see which was more popular.

All of them are available from my website and Print and Paper shop on Etsy priced £2.20.


Bee Inspired Card


I did get one more card listed this week and it seemed the perfect note to end on. It features a photograph i took of a bee feeding on some beautiful flowering teasel.


I hope the things you love have inspired you to get creatine this week. I'm off to visit the fabulous blogs over at Planet Penny's Happy Friday and Lucy Blossom's Handmade Monday to find out! x

  1. Hi - I like the cupcake and bunting card - used bunting as a theme for my wedding cards and cake decoration last year so I guess it reminds me of that :) I love the bee photo too and think it works really well as a card x
