Christmas Yummies

Christmas Yummies was my first thought when I saw the inspirational photo at Paper Lovin' Gals this week.  Cooking treats is one of my favourite things about Christmas, I am a little behind the cooking this Christmas, but I do have my dried fruit soaking ready to make my pudding and fruit mince pies this weekend.  Then the Rum Balls and White Christmas (the closest thing we have to snow in Australia!), my daughter and I often cook together and sing "It's beginning to smell a lot like Christmas" as the aromas of baking pies and rum balls fill the air.  Anyway ... that is what this picture reminded me of ... what does it make you think of?  How does it inspire you to create? Come play along this week at Paper Lovin' Gals.

I knew I wanted to use the little snowman out of the Tags Til Christmas set, and played around with a few ideas until it came to me to use him as decoration on the icing of a cupcake!!!  The icing on the biscuits at the front of the photo reminded me of show and so I replicated this in the two snowflakes on the card.  Ever since I started playing with the Silver Glimmer paper I have not been able to put it down!  On the centre circle I have sponged the edges which I think worked quite well, though you may need to click on the photo to see it properly.

I hope you have been inspired to join in this week, if you need a bit more pop over to Paper Lovin' Gals and see what the other Design Team members have created.

Happy Stamping


  1. Hi Monique, Gorgeous card as usual. Love the little snowman cupcake decoration and yes glimmer paper has that effect, I have several colours from a local scrap store and love using it.

  2. I can't decide if it's the fact that your cupcake looks like chocolate or that sparkle but I need a cupcake and a cute one stat!! This is adorable, I love how you put the snowman on top of the cupcake.

  3. Ohh Monique! Your snowman on top of the cupcake is an adroable idea! Super SWEET and YUMMY card!!
