CupCake Inspirations Challenge 365

So with a bit of sadness (bare with me for a moments) I am writing to let you know that I amCupcake Inspirations Badge no longer going to compete with the weekly card challenge, Cupcake Inspirations.

No, instead, starting now, I will be one of the Design Sweeties with the group.  Now, I’ll be one of the bakers whipping up CIC365.png winnie &walter stampsdesigns each week to this fun and unique group…(Yeah!!!)

So for my first week here, we have a great inspiration challenge, asking for those willing to brace the kitchen of design…whip up a design with flowers.

To add to the fun of this weeks challenge, we are unspecifiedsponsored by Winnie & Walter who will be awarding a $25 gift certificate to use on their web site for one random crafter who participates in the challenge.

As for me, I went with a floral panel this week in my card, wanting to use the light colors of the CIC365inspiration photo, but wanting also to play with a bit of darkness.

Using Winnie and Walter’s In Bloom: Addie’s Garden stamp set, I stamped out five different floral images twice each in Memento tuxedo black ink.  Yes, there was some creative masking used to help layer the flowers.  Then, using my copics, I colored in the flowers using the pale colors in the inspiration photo to guide me.  Pulling out some heavy black card stock, I trimmed it up so that it would highlight the floral panel.  Adding a bit of dimensional tape under the black card stock I added it to the card.  Using some white embossing powder, I added a ‘thank you’ sentiment and a couple of pearl dew drops.

Now it is your turn to go forward and craft up a little something with flowers.  Go forth and whip up a little something sweet in your world.



  1. An ‘official’ welcome to the team and WOW! Talk about making an impressive debut with your beautifully masked, coloured and arranged flowers! Stunning! The black adds such dramatic impact! Your creativity dazzles!
