Cupcake Picnic

Happy Monday! How about something fun and whimsical for today? Now that we are approaching warmer weather it makes me think about the fun spring and summer things we can do. Everyone loves cupcakes....how about a little cupcake picnic. This is a really fun little table topper that I made in the shape of a cupcake. All Michael Miller fabric.
I bought these adorable cupcakes from "Tracy Cakes" in downtown Abbotsford, BC. Super Sweet! I cut out large scallop circles with my spellbinder dies out of the scrap fabric to make little matching liners for the cupcakes. I used some of the fun stickpins I have from Fancy Pants and made little tags. I stamped the sentiments from Kim Hughes' "Baked with Love" set from Cornish Heritage Farms.
Here is a close up of my fabric cupcake. I stamped the little Kim Hughes cupcake in the centers of the dots on my fabric and then colored them in using the coordinating copic marker. I used my fabric tac adhesive to glue on my large brown ric rac.
The little table and chairs? We used them for our kids when they were little as their coloring table...passed down from Daddy. Hope this puts you in a fun springy creative mood!
Have a great day!

Hi Sherrie, i have a technical question if you don't mind. What ink do you use to stamp on fabric and is there a particular fabric that is best to use with the copics??? Can you wash this, and if so what happens to the Copics?
thanks
