CIC427-Freckled Fawn

We are sponsored this week by Freckled Fawn.

Freckled Fawn


Thank you for sponsoring the challenge!
Be sure to visit their site for some super cute and unique products!

  Here is this week's cupcake (linked to original source):
Inside the Bru Crew Life



For my card, I used some paper clips from Freckled Fawn along with stamps from Paper Smooches. The paper clips inspired me to create a school-like card.

I die cut and stamped the lined paper. Then stamped the little monster on it allowing the blue paper lines to show through. I then used colored pencils to quickly color the monster. I added a couple of stars. Then I stamped the sentiment on a sticky note and used the paper clip to attach. 
Thanks for stopping by and hope you will join this week!

I used the Halloweenies from Paper Smooches, which is one of my older Halloween stamp sets. This stamp set must be at least 5 years old, probably older.

So Glad We Met on the Web


I wanted to ink up some new Gerda Steiner Stamps. I used Distress Oxide inks to create a fun sunset background to showcase them with the addition of a few sparkly stars. (That sentiment just makes me giggle!)

Challenges:



'Tis the Season (Well maybe not quite yet!)

This card features a cute little stamp from Your Next Stamp. 
I wanted to use some non-traditional colors to make a fun, playful Christmas card. 

Challenges:







Hope


Here's a card I made for Breast Cancer Awareness month.
Then I die cut the sentiment panel (MFT) and stamped the hope sentiment from Paper Smooches' Flap Happy stamp set. I then stamped the butterfly on the pink card stock and on vellum. I then attached the two together for a 3D look. A added a few sequins for a bit of sparkle.  A simple card with a powerful message.

Challenges:





A Halloween Hello

Here is a Halloween card, I created using the colors from My Favorite Things Color Challenge. I recently purchased MFT's BB Witch Way Is the Candy? and wanted to play with them.  The colors definitely challenged me, but I'm excited how the overall card turned out.

Thanks by Debbie features Autumn Newton by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
My card features Autumn Newton. The autumn colors and burlap are a perfect combination for a harvest card. I embossed the background in a leaf embossing folder and added Oxide Inks. To finish the card I added a little leaf button with a touch of twine and die cut the thanks sentiment.

CIC425-Lawn Fawn

We are sponsored this week by Lawn Fawn.





 Lawn Fawn is generously providing a $25 gift certificate to our randomly chosen winner.

Here's the inspiration to spark your creativity!





For my card, I used Hoppy Halloween by Lawn Fawn.
I water colored the background with Distress Oxide Inks. I then glued some silvery stars. I stamped and embossed the moon and Bunni-cula image in silver. I then added some silvery shimmer to the cape, colored the bunny with Copic Ciao markers. For the moon, I added Brush of Stella before adding Glossy Accents. To add a bit more sparkle, I die cut (Sweet 'n Sassy) the starry edge. 
I love how it flips open!  
Hope you will join us at Cupcake Inspirations!
