Hi there! :) I hope you had a fabulous holiday! Today's Cupcake Inspiration Challenge is sponsored by Just Inklined, who has provided digi images for the CIC DT to work with.

Here is my creation based on the lovely inspiration photo above. I sure hope you like it! I may stop back tonight after my guests have gone home to add more details about this card. Until then...please stop by the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge blog and play along.

Have a great day!

Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #90

Hello there! :) I'm stopping by quickly today to share my creation for this week's Cupcake Inspiration Challenge, sponsored by Sparkle Creations. Check out the photo inspiration this week, will ya!?! I can hardly believe this is a cake. It's just so beautiful!

The details in Santa's beard and coat trim really caught my eye, which is why I chose to use the white embossed background on my card. All of the white cardstock used on this project is shimmery white cardstock, and surprisingly the Copic marker ink blended quite well on the paper. I used the ABS Melva the Elf digi image, which will be available soon at Anita Be Stampin.

So for those of you who celebrate, are you all ready for the upcoming holiday? Not me! LOL My head is spinning as I have about a million and two things to get accomplished before Christmas. Eeekkkk!!! It's all so exciting, but oh so busy. Please tell me you can relate. ;)

Please stop by the CIC blog to check out all of the creations by the CIC DT Sweeties and play along in the challenge. You could win a rubber stamp from Sparkle Creations just for playing along in the challenge. I can't wait to see what you make!

A Chilly Cupcake Inspiration Challenge

Oh my goodness...I cannot believe it is Sunday already! Do the weeks go by faster the closer we get to the holidays, or is it just me? This card sums up exactly what I am feeling here in Nebraska...BRRR! LOL With all the blowing snow and wind here, I can't help but be inspired to make a creation with such a chilly theme.

Since it's Sunday, you know what that means, right? Cupcake Inspiration Challenge time!!! This week's challenge is especially exciting, because Anita Be Stampin is sponsoring the challenge...woot woot!

Check out this beyond amazing cupcake, will ya? I much prefer these snowflakes to the frosty cold ones outside.

I used the Anita Be Stampin Sasha digi image on my card today, which is also based on
Card Patterns Sketch #94. Admittedly, this card isn't one of my favorite creations. I think I may have overdone it a bit with the Stickles. Eh...we live and we learn, right? ;)

Please scoot on over to the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge to check out all of the creations by the CIC DT Sweeties and play along in the challenge. The winner of the challenge wins a prize from Anita Be Stampin...gotta love that!

Have a warm and cozy day!

Stamps: Anita Be Stampin Sasha digi image, CC Designs sentiment
Paper: PTI SSW, Best Creations white glitter, TPS pp
Ink: SU bashful blue, Copic markers

Holly Jolly Cupcake Inspiration Challenge

Hello blog friends! :) I hope you have had a fabulous weekend! I am here (a wee bit late) to share my project for the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge this week. This CIC is sponsored by Lawn Fawn, and by playing along with us this week you could be the lucky winner of a super cute Lawn Fawn stamp set. Please check out all the details at the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge Blog.

As usual we have a beautiful, yummy cupcake photo to inspire our challenge creations. Can you say gorgeous!?! I stuck pretty closely to the inspiration photo this week, and I'm glad I did. I even dusted off my Cricut to make the holly die cut. ;) I used the Anita Be Stampin Aspen digi image as my main image, and the sentiment is from a really old and most likely discontinued Elsie Flannigan for Fontwerks rubber stamp set. I am entering this card in several challenges, which will all be linked up below.
