I know, St. Valentine’s Day has now passed by but I had this post drafted so decided to go ahead and share it with you anyway. To wait another 12 months seems an awful long time!
When I do vintage it is usually vintage, meaning faded colours, torn and tattered lace but this time I am dipping my toes into a slightly more Retro vintage feel for a fun Valentine cupcake!
Redlead Paperworks not only stock amazing stamps and stencils, they also have an abundance of collage sheets covering different themes and styles. When I received some of their Valentine Cupcake collage sheets (link below) I knew they would be fun to play with even though I would be working with slightly bolder colours to what I prefer.

A cupcake on stand makes this a fun alternative to a Valentine card. Tucked into a wooden frame, given a lovely Liquid Glass treatment, are a couple from one of Redlead’s collage sheets. I wanted dimension and fun elements on this cupcake, such as the pompom trim. A gathering of stamped images declaring their adulation for one another.I played around with one of the Redlead stamps to create my own sentiment.
All cupcakes should have a topping – here, a small wooden heart painted and then some Liquid Glass.
Now, I would say that needs to be a line drawn under all things Valentine!
Many thanks for your visit.
