I got to play with the fun OCL set called Hot Betty.  I had to giggle when I saw the fun sentiments.   I immediately knew I wanted to use fun colors.   May Arts 3/4” Chevron Striped Ribbons and soft red & white Twisted Rope were just perfect for this project.

Now, I have a confession to make… I have NEVER called my husband of 43 years, “Stud Muffin” !  He actually blushed when I asked him if he liked that term of endearment.  Heehee!  I think, however, that after I baked him some awesome French Breakfast Puffs, he rather liked the idea!  You can find the printable recipe that I adapted from The Pioneer Woman at the link.

Oh My!!

OCL and May Arts made it easy to elevate this muffin to gift category.  I used double sided tape to apply May Arts Twill Striped ribbon the cupcake carrier.

Cute, right?

 I stamped the Hot Betty image onto a Bazzill Basics white tag then colored her with Copic markers to match my May Arts Ribbon.

The sentiments and toaster images were stamped onto a scrap piece of cardstock and then I cut the notched end with scissors.  Ribbon scraps stapled to the tag end ties in the colors In Betty’s outfit.  Don’t you just love that cute little toaster?

I stamped the cupcake/muffin, colored the base then cut it out.  A bit of OCL Brown Sugar Sparkly Fluff makes it look just like the sugared muffins!

Thanks May Arts Ribbon and Our Craft Lounge for putting a bit of fun sizzle in our vocabulary!
