A SWEET farewell at Sweet Stamp Shop!

Happy Saturday, crafty friends! Today marks my final Design Team post at Sweet Stamp Shop. For today’s project, I made these cupcake toppers with a few of Sweet Stamp Shop‘s clear sets:
The past three months on the Sweet Stamp Shop team have been a whirlwind of fun and learning new techniques and getting to share my creations with some super-cute and super-fun stamps with you! 
I’m so happy to have had the chance to be part of such a talented team, and special thanks to Nicole and Chrissie for making my time with the team so sweet! A new team is set to take over in September, and I hope they have as much fun as I did!
I’d love it if you stopped by the Sweet Stamp Shop blog to say HI, and to see how these toppers came together! Since I wrote my Sweet Stamp Shop post earlier this week, the cupcakes are long gone, but I can promise you that they were delicious! 
Hope you have some crafty time planned for the weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by today!

And here are my projects for today’s hop! 
Cupcake toppers created with the new “Critter Crew” set!

These are super easy to make…color the critters, use a metal die to create the topper, tape to a straw and top the cupcake! (The frosting is easy too…just spoon the can of frosting in a gallon zipper bag, cut one of the corners, and spiral on…I picked the 4 most photogenic ones for the picture.)

Valentine/love tag created with new “I Ruff You” set (the banner comes from the new Fishtail Banner set, and the heart is from the Whatnots Seasons One set!)
