Lots to share in this post: Taylor’s cupcake challenge, taking a card front and converting to a scrapbook page or large card, and a chance to win a stamp set.
Let’s start with Taylor’s Cupcake Challenge. Ahhh, I got to use are really cool color combo and patterned papers for this one! I can’t say that I have used SU! Brilliant Blue or Green Galore in the past year (or more..lol). It was fun playing with these bright vibrant colors for the sketch.
How fun right? Aren’t those cupcakes the cutest? Remember, you don’t have to use cupcake images to participate in the challenges:) I fell in love with this paper when I saw it. Boyish, but can also go to anyone I think.
Now, how about making it a jumbo card or a 8-1/2 x 11 birthday section title page for a scrapbook. I placed additional coordinating patterned paper to the outside of the card, added a title, some whimsical details, and think it turned out okay.
For the title, I used SU! Jumbo Outline Alphabet and filled in with Aqua Stickles. I love my stamp-a-ma-jig tool…if you are a perfectionist, it is a must have handy tool.
For the whimsical pattern flowing across the page, I used an assortment of circle punches, paper-piercing, and coordinating brads. I added dimension to some of the circles using foam adhesive.
You can see more samples for the cupcake challenge at the following sites:
And the featured cupcake sampler for the challenge this week is from Carol at Happiness Blooms.
