Time for DYSU again! YUMM!

My team was selected to work with Wonderstrange stamps!
I have to tell you, these are are bit different from what I am used to stamping with!

But, this little cupcake had just enough "darkness" about it to lend itself perfectly to being a "Hallow's Eve" treat.

This is actually one of my favorite CAS cards for the Fall!

To make the paper baking cup appear more dimensional, when I printed out the digital image, I printed TWO copies. One regular size.
And the second, I S T R E T C H E D out the whole image,
then cutting the second baking cup off.  I coloroed and accordion folded it and attached it to the front of the first image.  Since I glued down the side edges and popped up the center, it looks very real.
For the background, I used my pre-printed "Spider's Web" papers from
My Mind's Eye, and stamped and embossed some extra web in the upper right-hand corner. Well, this led to a cute little spider and a bright red jewel.
The cherry stem is a piece of brown cord, and the sprinkles are Recollections pearls.
