Cupcake Inspiration Card Challenge #38

It's Sunday again already? Where does the time go? For some reason this week seemed to fly by. I cannot believe that Christmas will be upon us in just a few short days! Are you all shopped out and wrapped up and prepared to celebrate the day?

Yeah, I know... I'm not either. LOL!

So let's take a look at the adorable cupcakes Rachel picked out for us this week. Could they be more festive than this? I think not. :) You can draw so many different things from these cupcakes, so please make sure to play along with me and the rest of the HSE Sweeties! Upload your card to Rachel's blog using Mr. Linky and please use keyword CIC38 when uploading to online galleries.




I had fun coloring this sweet image of Madelynn from The Greeting Farm. Currently, Rachel is out of stock of this image, but I could not pass up using her. The little heart pocket on her coat matched the hearts on these cupcakes. And I knew she'd look so sweet all decked out in her Christmas Red and Green.

Madelynn is colored in with Copic markers. I added the white polka dots with my Sakura White Gel Pen. The buttons on her coat are silver pearl dots. Her little heart pocket was stamped a second time and then cut out to add a tiny bit of dimension with a 3-D Mini Gluedots. The entire image is mounted to the card using Zva Creative Dimensionals. I also used the Snow Dots and Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folders. The sentiment is from PTI's Signature Christmas and was stamped using Tuxedo Black ink.

This card also uses the sketch from the Card Positioning Systems blog: CPS146 and the challenge from the Crazy 4 Challenges blog C4C15 - Snowflakes/Snowman themed card.

Be sure to check out what the HSE Sweeties DT has whipped up for this week's Cupcake Inspiration Challenge. Plus we are still enjoying creations from this month's Guest Sweetie: Elena.
