This first card is for the Featured Stamper Challenge at SCS. The lucky recipient this week is the talented Denise Marzet, aka peanutbee. Not only does she have a ROCKIN' gallery that can be seen HERE, but she also has an amazing blog that can be seen HERE! I chose to case THIS card, but I made several changes to make it my own. These changes include: color, stamps used, and sentiment. I kep the layout pretty much the same, but had to alter it a bit to make room for my cupcakes!
I used the stamp sets "Cause For Celebration" and "All Holidays" along with the following cardstock colors: Yoyo Yellow, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, and Watercolor Paper. The cupcakes were stamped in Jet Black Staz-On Ink onto the white cardstock, then again onto watercolor paper. Each cupcake was watercolored using Stampin' Write Markers (Creamy Caramel, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Yoyo Yellow) and Aquapainters. Red, Yellow, and Orange Glitter was added to the tops of the cupcakes for a little *sparkle*, then each watercolored goody was cut out and placed over the images on the white cardstock using Dimensionals. Three Red Brads were added to finish off the card after the sentiment was stamped using a Stamp-a-ma-jig and Image Sheet for placement.
These two cards are for a friend of mine. She is planning her son's wedding, and asked me to design several invitations for her to choose from. These are A2 cards, but I've also made some 5X7 and 4X6 samples for her. What do you think of these?
That's it for today, but I will see you back here tomorrow with something for the Color Challenge at SCS, and the Featured Swapper Challenge at the GSG blog. Until then...
