It’s A Cupcake Kind of Day

CIC 413It’s Sunday so that means it is time for a new challenge over at Cupcake Inspirations Challenge.  This week the challenge is a color challenge and looking for the colors red, cream, and dark brown.


This week we are sponsored by STAMPlorations who is generously offering a $15 gift certificate to one random participant.

For me, the inspiration photo was the thing that inspired me most of all this week, and I just knew I had to have some cupcakes on my card.  So in an act of …(insanity?)… I ventured away from my normal style and pulled out my die cutting machine.  Using the STAMPlorations die Cupcake Builder 2, I die cut lots of red, cream and brown paper to build the sweet little cupcake.  I assembled all the papers and then using a light grey Marvy marker and a dark grey Tombow marker I created some highlights and shadows on the papers, trying to create just a bit more dimension.  Finally, I heat embossed an Ellen Hutson Essentials sentiment onto the card with some white embossing powder.

I seriously recommend that you venture over to the other Design Sweeties and check out their amazing work.  You will not regret it!



I can’t wait to see what you come up with using this fun color combination.
