Sweet Cupcakes

Mmmmm...this cupcake I cut out looks good enough to eat! Chocolate cardstock for the card, pink patterned paper, robin's blue cardstock border punched and rubber stamped with cupcake images that I used pink chalk on for the frosting, various ribbons, rhinestones and Stickles. I embossed the bottom of the cupcake to make it look more like cupcake paper, and embossed the top pink frosting part with swirls. Rhinestone "sprinkles" and candle flame. I also rubber stamped the sentiment. It took me a while to design this cuz I couldn't figure out what colors and papers to use, what size I wanted it etc... It was for my sista Daphne's birthday (better late than never!) Love ya girl!

Back Again...and BBTB Challenge

It's been a while, but I'm back...again. C'est la vie. Here is a card I made for the Bitten By The Bug Challenge. We had to use the cornucopia cut, which the more I looked at it, the more it looked like an elf hat to me. I drew the face by hand, accented with pink chalk. Rhinestones in the corners, embossed oval, paper & silk flowers, "peppermint" candy buttons, rubber stamped greeting, ribbon, and scrunched up torn vellum pieces for his beard. He is kinda sweet lookin'. I had fun making this one and am very grateful to be on the BBTB team. It helps to stir my creativity and to think outside the box. Please check out the other designers creations which are sooo cute at BBTB.
