Sunday's Challenges

Hi Everyone!! Hope you are having a great weekend!! It has been cool rainy and dreary here in Minnesota. We need the rain so I shouldn't complain!!

I have made 2 challenge cards today. My first card is for Taylor's Cupcake Challenge from Friday. Earlier this week I got this fun cupcake set from Pink Poison's Splended Little Company. I cannot remember where I saw someone use the set but I had to seek it out and get it!!! I stamped the image twice, once on white paper and the second on the designer paper. I cut out the designer paper and attched to the white. I used pink stickles for the frosting and Christmas red for the cherry. I have some tiny beads I picked up at Michaels quite some time ago and sprinkles some on the frosting and used them on the border of the oval. I attached the designer paper to Dark Chocolate cardstock and ran the pretty in pink cardstock through my Cuttlebug using the Happy Birthday folder. Simple, fun card to make!!

My second card is for the Featured Stamper challenge on Splitcoast. Lazy Lizard is today's featured stamper and this card is the one I chose to case. I really liked the layout. I used different colors, stamp set, ribbon and turned the layout. I used my Birds of a Feather set from Papertrey, I just love this set!!! I stamped the bird using Papertrey's Dark Chocolate ink on Confetti White cardstock, attached to a layer of Kraft cardstock and then Dark Chocolate. I ran some Kraft cardstock through my Cuttlebug using my Bird Call embossing folder. I really like how the bird in the stamp set and the bird on the embossing folder look so similar!! I attached this fun ribbon from May Arts to the Kraft layer, attached those 2 to Dark Chocolate cardstock and the main card is Confetti White from Stampin UP!. Another very simple card but I am very happy with the results!
Thank you so much for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your weekend!!!
