I'm This Week's Cupcake Sampler!!

Words cannot even express how EXCITED and HONORED I was to be asked by Taylor to be her Cupcake Sketch Sampler for this week!! I must have redone this card a hundred times, LOL!! But as nervous as it made me, I would do it again in a heartbeat!! Thanks for asking me Taylor, it is truly an honor!! For my card today, I used one of my FAVORITE Paper Pretties stamps, Sweets for the Sweet(currently out of stock, sorry, I really hate it when I do that. Be sure to check out the Pretties store too, Christie is now carrying Shimmerz, Blingz, and is having a GREAT sale on Copics!!) I stamped it on Gina K. White with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored it in with my Copics. The bar the utensils are hanging on was colored with my Silver gel pen. I then cut it out and layered it with Pumpkin Pie and Cool Caribbean. The DP I used is from My Mind's Eye, it is so yummy!! I cut the circles out with my Cuttlebug and Circle Nesties. The ribbon is from SU( white taffeta and Pumpkin Pie grosgrain). I added some large white American Crafts brads too, along with some piercing. The sentiment was cut out with my Ribbon Slide tag dies and my Cuttlebug. Super cut huh!! Thanks again Taylor for choosing me, I can't wait to see what her team has come up with for this sketch too!! Thanks and have a great day! My Mom is getting married today, so Congrats Mom, I love you!!

Green Bugs...

So, I wasn't able to play in yesterday's Ways to Use It challenge, so I decided to combine it with today's Limited Supplies Challenge. The WT was to make a Green card, whether it be that you used recycle products or just the color green. I decided to go with Wild Wasabi, my favorite green that is sadly retired. For today's LSC, you had to use some sort of bug stamp, four layers and no patterned papers....oiy. This one was hard for me, but The end result is cute, plain, but cute. I used my Slow and Steady set from There She Goes, along with the mini Holiday's Galore set. My image was stamped on Gina K. White and then colored with my Copics. I added a piece of Wild Wasabi striped ribbon and a Cuttlebugged panel of Wild Wasabi cardstock. Pretty simple card for me huh!! That is it for me now, stay tuned for a SUPER exciting post later!!
