Cupcake Cottage !


This is a very special gift set i made...
Im not sure what to show you first !

It all started with Bev's beautiful stetch on the Just Magnolia challenge,
I  got so inspired that it ended up a full gift set ! 
~Thanks Bev ! ~
here it is 
Cupcake Cottage Gift Set !
It comes complete with , Card and Matching Box for it (pitured at the back of the card in the photo, CupCake Cottage and the cutest little dolly sitting on a fabric doile !
Well i'd  better start off with the card first had'nt i ?


here she is cute Tilda ! 
I used a martha stewart punch for the mat and coated the 
frills in Glass Glitter ! It actually looks like sherbet coating !!! gorgeous effect !
I coloured Tilda in with copics and she has some glass glitter 
on the frill of her skirt.
the papers are by Papermania .
I really really enjoyed doing this sketch .
I am entering this into these challenges .


Inside the card.

A very large fimo / polymer clay and paper cupcake that sits on top of the cottage , 
but can also be taken off too !
Edited to say --- only the tiny roses are fimo - the other blooms are paper.
the pink ruffle is fimo and so is the blue icing.
Front of cupcake cottage , adorned with a little brass knob 
and decorative blooms.
Now then this cottage does have occupants !
Oh yes indeedy !
lets have a peek inside shall we ?

Well would you look at that , looks like Teddies Tea Time !
Every time i open that little door i think to myself that its like 
looking at the secret life of Teddies !
Look at the little fella at the back, he is noshing on a little cup cake !
Theres Teddy holding a dolly .... that dolly looks familiar !

thought she looked familar !
Heres Dolly holding Teddy and a cupcake !
she is obviously joining them for tea ! heheeeee !

Well i do hope you enjoyed looking at my creations ,
if you have any questions , please use the c - box on my side bar,
its so much easier to answer you than in the comments, thanks x

this is a very special set , every piece i thoughly enjoyed making .
