A New Challenge at Cupcake Inspirations Challenge

Hello friends. 

I have been so bad at blogging and I apologize. I still create but have been sewing more and taking photos of what I sew is just not as easy as cards. 

Today I am posting a card that I created for the newest challenge at Cupcake Inspirations Challenge Blog

The Cupcake Inspirations Challenge is a THEME challenge this time around. It is to use stars on your card. I wanted to use it in a slightly different way so I decided to use a STARFISH instead of a regular star.


I could have used the colors of red, white and blue, as in the photo but I wanted to make a more of a beach themed card. I used the Pretty Pink Posh's Summer Circles as my main image and colored it in with Copic Markers. 

I added a starfish die cut from Hero Arts and the sentiment is from "Seas and Greetings" from Simon Says Stamp.

I have been in a creative funk but love how this came out!!!

I want to thank you for taking the time to stop by today. Please join us this week at the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge. I cannot wait to see what you create!!!

Have a FABULOUS day!!!

A New Challenge at Cupcake Inspirations Challenge

 Hi friends!!

Today I am stopping by with the new challenge from Cupcake Inspirations Challenge. This week we have a sponsor-Pixel Paper Prints!!! The shop generously donated the Unicorns and Rainbow Digital Stamps for the Design Team to use.

I chose to create a cute birthday card using the challenge colors of Purple, Lavender and Pink and some fun "magical" images from Pixel Paper Prints for this weeks card. 

Aren't these images fun? I chose to print a bunch of them around my card and then highlight my main unicorn in the challenge colors. Below is the badge for this weeks Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #546.


These colors just SHOUT unicorn, don't they? I created the sentiment using fonts that I have on my computer.

After I popped my little colored unicorn onto the card with foam adhesive, I went around the card, and image, with little bits of Diamond Stickles for a fun look. 

I hope you choose to join us this week at Cupcake Inspirations Challenge. There will be prizes awarded to two random entries!! Please click the link above to see all the details!

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

A New Release for Kat Scrappiness!!!!

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

Hello Friends!!!

It is a busy week this week. Exams start for the students and I am so happy for the school year to be OVER!!! It has been one of the toughest that I ever have remembered and I don't think it will be getting any better.

Today I am popping with a couple cards I created for a NEW RELEASE over at the Kat Scrappiness Shop. It is a stamp, die and paper set to raise money for Ukraine. It is called #UkraineStrong. 

All profits from this set until July 1, 2022 (or while supplies last) will be donated to the Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund. With all that has been going on in our own country, there is still a need for relief to the Ukrainian people. 

I created a couple of cards for this release that were on the Kat Scrappiness Blog yesterday. 

I used the new paper and stamps, along with the Kat Scrappiness Heart Donut Builder Dies and Midnight Sky Pearls to create my card. 

I wanted to show case how pretty the papers are on this card and could be used for a ton of other kinds of cards. I already know that I will be using it for some masculine birthday cards in the future.

My second card I used the paper and stamps again but with the Kat Scrappiness Stitched Scallop Nesting Tags Dies and White Diamond Sequin Mix.

I stamped the sentiment and the sunflower in blue using the stamp set, and made the polka dots on the back of my card using the center of the sunflower. 

The tag was cut from the #UkraineStrong paper pad. This card is actually my favorite from the three I created for this release!!!

I have a BONUS CARD over on Instagram today using these products too. There is a hop going on with a  with a random prize being given. Hop on over to Instagram and click on the badge. All the details for the hop are in the post!!! 

I want to thank you for taking the time to stop by. I hope that you will support this cause. Have a FABULOUS day!!
