Fall Fairy...

No Spring nor Summer Beauty hath such grace, As I have seen in one Autumnal face. -John DonneHAPPY HALLOWEEN!!! Hope everyone's Holiday is going Ghoulishly Good!

This week's Cupcake Inspiration is moving on from Halloween and picking up the delicious colors and textures of Fall. We were sponsored this week by Woodware USA Clear Stamps, so I pulled out my little Fairy Tots and made a card inspired by the colors and flowers on the cupcake.

I used a recycled Product Catalog for the patterned paper, I had a few stuck away from when I had the stamp store and a few of them had samples of the paper on the front cover! This pattern is from the TPC Studio 2009 Catalog. :)

Here is a peek at the felt spiral flower I made. I just cut a scalloped Nestie circle of felt, then cut it into a spiral and wrapped it up...

Stamps: Fairy Tots
Paper: TPC Studios Catalog, Summer Sunrise, Vintage Cream & Ripe Avocado CS (PTI,) Really Rust (SU)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento,) Copic Markers, White Pigment Ink
Misc: Pearls, Stickles, Wistful Ribbon (Pixie Petals,) Felt (MFT,) Nestie Die, Pearl Brad (Making Memories)

P.S. Here is a shot of the Glitter "Y" I made for my friend's costume (She was Adam Lambert, her costume was Perfect! Right down to the big glittery letter on the hat...just a Y instead of the A for Adam!)

P.S.S. Just so you know, adults can Trick or Treat too! :) Here is the haul I got at work Friday during the Costume Parade around the office. :)
