Gingie Sock Cupcake

Hello and happy Friday!!! Yay for the rain here in SoCal!! I do hope everyone is being safe. Nobody seems to slow down here while driving in the rain :(  It feels cold in my craft room today. I had to crank the heater so I could try to catch up with my blogging after finishing up this semester. My students did a fabulous job in their recitals and all my work is done. Now I get more time to spend playing with my cutting machines!! I say machines because even with the Explore I still need my other machines!  I still use my Imagine and sometimes if I'm in a hurry it is just faster to plug in my Expression. It can take near forever to find specific cuts on the Design Space.

I made this cute little sock cupcake for one of my daughter's Secret Santa presents. I forgot to take a pic of the socks but they had little Gingerbread men embroidered on the sides. I used Kraft and brown cardstock and the Sweet Treats Cartridge for the cupcake box. I rolled up the sock to be cupcake shaped.

I don't even know what cartridge the tag I used is from.  It is just one in a million that popped up when I searched "tag". It's not the one I wanted but I couldn't find the one I wanted on DS even after refining my search over and over. The adorable little Gingie is from the Create A Critter 2 cartridge. I added sparkly purple bows as well as some bling.  And the sentiment is from the awesome and ever so popular Get Your Jingle On stamp set from Crafting Desert Diva's. I love these stamps!!
