Hello! Happy Cupcake Day! And HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY! Would you just take a look at these super, fabulous, adorable, yummy and delicious looking cupcakes that Rachel has chosen for us today to use as our Cupcake Inspiration Challenge? I mean….WOWZA!!! I think I could make a whole set of cards using this picture as inspiration!!!
Of course, there’s no time for that when I’ve got a 3 year old clinging to me at all times of the day! LOL! So just 1 card will have to do. This card uses the sketch from Tracy's ESS Sketchy Thursday #70.
I used Stella from The Greeting Farm for my card, in honor of Valentine’s Day. I created my background using the Swiss Dots CB Folder on my Hibiscus Burst cardstock. That super cute DP is from Bella Blvd (Keeping Warm). I punched my border with the Fiskars Threading Water Border Punch and the flowers were punched out using 2 different size Paper Shaper punches that I purchased from HSE. Rachel is not carrying these exact punches right now, but check out the punches she does have IN STOCK. I mounted the flower using my all time FAVORITE 3-D adhesives: Zva Creative Dimensionals. (For all other supplies see bottom of post)
We would love to have you play along this week! Make sure to add a direct link to your NEW creation using Mr. Linky on Rachel’s blog. Please use keyword CIC46 when uploading to public online galleries like SCS or PCP. Remember, no cupcake stamps are required! Rachel picks a new Top 5 to showcase every Sunday!
