Reminder for the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #536

Hello everyone!! I hope you all had a nice weekend. 

Today I am here on the blog with a reminder that it is week #2 for the Cupcake Inspiration #536

The challenge is to use the colors pink and mint on at card. Below is the challenge badge for the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #536.

I used another digital image from our sponsor, Paper Nest Dolls. She generously gifted this the Design Team to create a card.

I colored in Cupcake Avery with Copic Markers and then cut her out with scissors. Isn't she adorable? 

I layered her over an embossed pink panel and added some sentiments that I printed out on the computer. 

I then added some sequins around the sentiments.

I hope that you will join us at Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #536 and create a card. I cannot wait to see what you create!!

I want to thank you for taking the time to stop by. Have a FABULOUS day!!

A Farewell to CAS-ual Fridays Stamps and a New Craft

Hello Friends!! 

Today I am on the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Blog with my final card being a DT member of CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.  I have resigned to have more time to do some other crafts that I am interested in. I want to thank Michele for taking her chance on me and letting me be a member of her Design Team.

For my last card I created a get well card for a friend that just had surgery.

To see how I created this card, please hop on over to the CAS-ual Fridays Blog.

As for what I have been working on? I am now sewing Barbie clothes and making miniatures! Yes, it might be a bit strange to some of you but I am so excited to be doing this again. When I was in high school, I made clothes and my grandmother would sell them for me. I have been experimenting with sewing again so that eventually I might open a shop to sell someday. Below are a few things I have created in my journey for perfection.

I created this jacket using a cotton fabric and lined it with a polka dot lining.

I created the outfit under it with some fancy fabric and some trim.

I created some white pants, as well, with a black top.

I made a coat to go with it. I love this fabric and it was rough.

I will be redoing this jacket again!!

That is all from me today. I want to thank you for taking the time to stop by!!!

Week Two of Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #535

 Happy Monday everyone!!

Today starts week two of the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #535-to use coffee or tea time theme on a card. Last week I made a coffee themed card so I decided that this week I would dig out some of my tea themed stamps to create my card. 

The badge below is the challenge badge for Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #535, though I only used the theme and not the badge itself as inspiration.


I used the Hello and Thanks Stamp and Die set from WPlus9 to create this card. I had so much fun coloring and layering on this card.

The dies rectangle dies are from Paper Trey Ink. 

That is all from me today. I hope that this card inspires you to hop on over and play with us at the Cupcake Inspiration Blog. I cannot wait to see what you create!!

I want to thank you for stopping by. Have a FABULOUS day!!

A New Cupcake Challenge #535 Coffee/Tea Time

 ***Some links in this post are Affiliate Links used at no extra cost to you.

Hello everyone!! 

Happy New Year!! Okay, it is January 10th but for everyone that follows the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge Blog, we have had a little break. Today we are BACK with a fabulous new challenge. It is a theme challenge this week. Can you guess what the theme is by the card I created?

The Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #535 is to use the theme of Coffee or Tea Time!!!

I chose to create a card using the coffee theme. I pulled out some never been used stamps and dies by Altenew to create my card. I used the Coffee Lovers Stamp and Die Set for the images on my card. I have had this set for YEARS but just never used it!!!

The background is from a panel that was on my desk. My goal for this year is to try to use up what I have die cut and made already, if I can!!

The label die cut and scallop frame are from my stash as well. The heart is from another card that I created over break and is from the Heart Donut Builder Dies from Kat Scrappiness. 

That is all form me today. Please hop on over to the Cupcake Inspirations Blog and play along with us this week. I cannot wait to see what you create!!

Getting Ready for Valentine's Day-A Kat Scrappiness Release!!!

 ***The links in this post are Affiliate Links used at no extra cost to you!! All are indicated in bold red.

Happy New Year everyone!! 

Here is to 2022 being a year where COVID becomes nothing but a common cold!!

Today I am here with some cards I created for the NEW release over at the Kat Scrappiness Shop. I had SO MUCH FUN making these cards!!!

My first card I created using the new Kat Scrappiness Smooches Coverplate Die.

I did a bit of ink blending with pink Distress Inks on the panel and then die cut it with the Smooches Coverplate. I then die cut it two more times out of white cardstock and adhered all three layers together.

Then I created a shaker card using the Kat Scrappiness Lots of Smooches Sprinkles inside as my shaker. The sprinkles are four colors of lips and they are SO CUTE!!!

The set of large lips comes with the die and I knew that I wanted to cover them with a Spectrum Clear Sparkle Marker and Glossy Accents. The sentiment is from KS Say it With Hearts stamp set.

On my second card, I used the left over lips from my card above. That makes the Smooches Coverplate a great bargain because you can make TWO cards easily with die cutting one background!!

I used the Smooches Coverplate die as a template and glued two layers of the lips together-one white and the little die cuts that were from my ink blended panel-onto a white A2, top folding card front. I covered all the lips with Spectrum Clear Sparkle Marker to give them a bit of shine.

I stamped the MWAH! sentiment with black ink using the previously released Valentine Quokka stamp set and the card was complete.

For my THIRD card, I got messy.

I started off by using the new Kat Scrappiness A2 Post Card Die to die cut a panel out of white cardstock.  I then used Kitsch Flamingo Distress Oxide to ink blend my background. To give it a bit more oomph, I flicked red and white Distress stain over the pink.

While my background was drying, I die cut a small heart and some "frosting" out of white cardstock using the Kat Scrappiness Heart Donut Builder Dies. I used some brown ink and one of the Mini Ink Blending Tools to blend my heart "donut." I adhered the frosting over the top and added some XOXO Sprinkles over the top.

The sentiment is the new Love You Dies w/Shadow. I adhered this to the front, along with the lips from the Smooches Coverplate, and covered them with Spectrum Clear Sparkle Marker and Glossy Accents.

I adhered the panel over an A2, white card base and added the heart "donut" in the top right corner and my card was complete.

In celebration of the New Year AND the New Kat Scrappiness Release, Kat Scrappiness is having an Instagram Hop #ksvalentinesrelease2022. Hop on over to the Kat Scrappiness IG Account to start this fun hop!!
