Taylor's Cupcake Challenges

January 25, 2009

This weekend, I was busy trying to made cards for Taylor's Cupcake challenges. Here are 3 cards that I have made for the challenge.

The first one is "Love Shack". For this card I used the sketch provided by Donna Baker. Stamp is from Amuse Artstamps called Love Shack. Image was stamped 2x on white cs with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored with Copic markers. First image was cut and mounted on top of the second image with double sided foam tape for dimension. Stamped a branch on top of the house and passed a piece of blue scrappers floss to tie the house onto the tree branch. Matted the main panel on blue cs and dotted all around the edge with a White Signo pen. Cut into sqaures DP from My Mind's Eye - Quite Smitten and Irresistible and used this for the background of the card. Love to you was stamped on with cs and adhered to a Blue cs that was die cut with Spellbinders Ribbon Trio label die. Used a pink ribbon to adhere this to the card and added a heart charm. Layered some pink and blue Prima flowers to top end of the main panel.

Paper: My Mind's Eye - Irresistable and Quite Smitten and blue cs
