Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #282--My Grafico





 Mygrafico Digitals Logo
It's a new challenge at Cupcake Inspirations.  This week it's a color challenge-ballet, cream, and gold. We are sponsored by My Grafico. The DT Sweeties used Stick Fairies digis.  I decided to use The Cat's Pajamas' Fancy Fold Cut-Ups to make a fold out card.  I decided to keep it pretty simple.  I colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers and added some sparkle with gold Stickles.  I paired up a couple flowers with some gold dots!  A fun birthday card for a little girl!

Mummy--Brains!


Oh, I have been having too much fun with Halloween cards this year!  Halloween is not my favorite holiday, but I am sure loving making cards.  Fortunately one of my co-workers gives all of her grandchildren cards for Halloween and she bought 12 from me!  Yea!  This card features a very fun mummy from The Cat's Pajamas new release!

Trick-or-Treat with Bunnicula



Today's craft session was all about Halloween cards!  I am still playing with my new Boo Crew stamps from Newton's Nook Designs.  I've been digging through my very old stash of Halloween paper.  I so want to buy some new pads, but I have so much just sitting there!   

In case you are not aware, Cupcake Inspirations Theme Challenge this week is Story Time!  The first time I saw this vampire bunny I was reminded of the book, Bunnicula.  It is one of my favorite children's chapter books.  Chester, the cat, is convinced that the new bunny the family brought home is a vampire! Have a stamp that reminds you of a book?  Be sure to join us this week!

Oh, this week's challenge at  Cupcake Inspirations is one of my favorite theme challenges--Story Time!  There are so many wonderful children's books that I love that could easily be turned into a card.  For this card, I used a Bugaboo image--Bobblehead hween Frank.

Here's the children's book that inspired me! 
We don't have a sponsor this week, but never fear.

The Cat's Pajamas September Release

Hop_22-1

It is release day for The Cat's Pajamas! All seven of the new stamp sets, four fabulous new Cutups dies and two new Cutables are available now in The Cat's Pajamas shop

If you came from  Christine's blog, you are on the right path. If not, then start at the beginning with Julie's blog. And speaking of Julie, she is our TCP Tuesday hostess for this rotation with a beautiful color challenge.
For this card, I used Big, Fat Holiday Greetings and The Birds CutUps.  I kept this one pretty simple by heat embossing the sentiment and adding the bow.  



Now it's time for you to continue the hop.  You are heading over to Lisa's blog for some amazing projects!
