2011 Artisan Award blog hop Day 9

Day 9!?! WOW! We are almost done! You should be coming From Jenn Pucard's Blog. Sorry about the posts being out of order. We went out of town for a wedding and apparently I am NOT tech savvy!
We are now on to my first 3-D project. This is the perfect project for today because it is MY birthday. "Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday to me...."
O.K. now that I have that out of my system, on with my project.
I used magnetic paint to cover a picture I had hanging on my wall for WAY too long. Do not use Magnetic spray paint, it takes way to much and holds almost nothing, Go to any home improvement store and buy an entire quart of the stuff your apply with a brush for what you would pay for a can of spray paint at a craft store. Then I painted over that with regular paint. I matched the paint to Pear Pizzazz.
After I created my 30 cupcakes I put them on Stampin' Up!s Magnetic paper. They hold amazingly well to the board!
I have picked out a couple of my favs from the batch.
This is the one I am most proud of.....I LOVE the little bite. I used the scallop circle from the Bitty punch pack to take that bite. I also did the same with an Early Espresso cupcake topper and placed it behind the Pear pizzazz one so It looks like chocolate cake under the frosting.
My basket weave.....
My Son's absolute favorite..... the cherry topped one! I just punched out a bunch of cherries with the cupcake punch from Real Red cardstock. I used an Early Espresso Stampin' Write Marker to color the stems and the covered them with Crystal Effects.
finally to hold the cupcake magnets while you countdown, I decorated this envelope.

Thanks for stopping by today! Summer Stone is waiting with another great project!!!
