Let Me Call You Cupcake

Hello Everyone
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.

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.cupcaketwolynnemoncrieff A gathering of stamped images declaring their adulation for one another.cupcakethreelynnemoncrieffI 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.

Many thanks for your visit.

    Definitely a retro feel – down to the shape of the frame of the photo, which feels like a 1960s TV screen! Fabulous bold colours and a fun look.

    This really is a fun alternative to a Valentine card, I just love the red and pink mix and It was such a fin idea to add the little stand for the cupcake too. The pom poms are a delightful addition! Apologies for being missing, hopefully back now… Hugs, Anne xx

    What a cute, vintage alternative to the conventional Valentine! This creation reminds me of old movies from my childhood and the optimistic world of the late ‘forties and ‘fifties! I love the red, the polka dots and the poms-poms! xx

    What fun! I, too, love Red Lead stamps and collage elements. What an adorable tribute to the love of this fun couple. I love the bright reds you have used with this darling cupcake. You have also put together a very sweet sentiment with those Red Lead words. Thanks again, Lynne, for sharing an inspiring work! Cheers! inkybru xx
