Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #87

Hello Sunday! :) It's that time again....Cupcake Inspiration Challenge time. Woot woot! This week the CIC is sponsored by Amber Ink, who has provided digi images for the DT Sweeties to work with.

Here is the beautiful cupcake that helped to inspire my creation. Now that is an absolutely gorgeous cupcake, if I do say so myself. ;) I love using non-traditional holiday colors, so much so that my Christmas tree is always decorated in pinks, silver, and crystals.

I used this ornament digi image with some Cricut Plantin SchoolBook die cuts to create the word noel. I really like the way this clean and simple card turned out, but the photo of my card...not so much. LOL It's difficult to see in the photo, but there is really a lot of shimmer going on there. Even the cryogen white cardstock shimmers!

I also want to be sure to mention that my card was inspired by Susan (aka LateBlossom)'s card that can be viewed on her blog here. Thanks so much Susan for the inspiration!

Please stop by the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge Blog to check out all of the fabulous creations by my fellow DT Sweeties and play along in the challenge. It should be a fun challenge this week. I can't wait to see your creations!


Stamps: Amber Ink ornament digi image
Paper: Cryogen white, PTI moss, blush, aqua

ABS Challenge - Christmas Angel

Happy Tuesday, peeps! :) I hope you are having a fabulous week so far. It's time for our second Anita Be Stampin Challenge, and I am excited to announce that we are giving away another $15 Anita Be Stampin gift certificate. Check out all of the details on the ABS Challenge Blog.

Isn't this sketch great!?! I elected to leave the sentiment off my card, only because I could not fit one on and make it look quite right. I'll stamp a holiday message inside I guess. ;) I decided to use the ABS Angeline digi image and turn her into a Christmas fairy. Although the photo doesn't capture it well, her wings turned out really pretty in a shimmery gold color.

Now it's time to stop on over to the Anita Be Stampin Challenge Blog and check out all of the lovely creations made based on this sketch by the fabulous ABS DT. I sure hope you'll join us in our second Anita Be Stampin Challenge! Remember participants who create a new project based on this sketch using any Anita Be Stampin image have a chance to win a $15 ABS gift certificate. Who doesn't love free stamps! ;) This challenge will run for two weeks (until Monday, Dec. 6th) so that we can give those celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday (in the U.S.) plenty of time to play along with us.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #86

Happy Sunday peeps! :) Enjoying your weekend? I know I am! :) It's time for Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #86...woot woot! This week's challenge is sponsored by Robyn's Fetish, who has provided digi images for the DT Sweeties to work with.

I chose to work with this turkey image, which I paper pieced using papers from the K&Co Actopus to Zelephant paper collection. I popped the turkey's hat up to add a little dimension (oh yeah, and to hide a little boo boo I made while paper piecing too). I avoided adding any extra frou frou on this card since it is going to be sent to a fella.

Okay, time to check out the fabulous cupcake inspiration photo for this week's challenge. Aren't these fall cupcakes fabulous!?! Such pretty, soft looking colors! My creation for this week's challenge features colors that are a bit more rich. What can I say...I needed a boyish card. ;)

Please stop by the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge blog to check out all of the creations that the CIC DT Sweeties made and participate in this week's challenge. I can't wait to see what you make! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
