Introducing Baker's Dozen...

Baker's Dozen is a new stamp set and coordinating dies by Papertrey Ink that will be released this month on Jan. 15th at 10 pm EST with all the new sets! There is a cupcake for each month in this set, so it's a versatile set that can be used year round.
I do a lot of my shopping at Target, for groceries (and everything else under the sun - love that store!) and happened to come across these little baking cups with lids in the kitchen section. I think there were 4 or 5 of them in the package with lids. You can pour the cupcake batter right in the dish and bake it, but I had better luck with just making the cupcakes and adding one inside with a cute tag on top stamped with Baker's Dozen.
(My cupcake is carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, just in case you were wondering. And yes, I ate 3 of them the day I made these! Ha. Delish.) I used watercolor pencils to color in the pink frosting on the cupcake die cut and markers to color in the red and green portions.
So Sweet of You Tag and Cupcake:
(All supplies by Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.)
STAMPS: Baker's Dozen
INK: Pure Poppy by PTI; Soft Granite by Hero Arts
PAPER: White, Sweet Blush cardstock
DIES: Baker's Dozen
OTHER: disposable baking dish - Target, seam binding, markers, watercolor pencils.

Next is a card with Aqua Mist cardstock in the background and Baker's Dozen stamped and embossed onto a vellum overlay. 
I used a new die and stamp set called Layered Banner Banter for the big sentiment.  A few mica flakes and a sequin add sparkle and shine.
Celebrate card:

What a great idea to use the cupcake for packaging a sweet treat! I could see that for so many occasions. Nothing is sweeter than the color combination you used for your card and oooh the vellum!
