CIC#497--Double Trouble Partner

Welcome to Cupcake Inspirations Challenge--

This week will ask you to include Flowers with Pearls and/or Sequins.

We've also partnered up with 
Double Trouble!

When you enter our challenge this week, be sure to run over to the Double Trouble Challenge blog and see what their co-coordinating challenges are, so  you can link up with them as well!  The more aspects of the challenge you do, the more entries you will receive to win their prize!

Here's my inspiration!

I wanted to make a fun, playful summer card with a hint of flowers, sequins, and pearls.  I used Newton's Nook Design's Sunscape stencil to create the sunshine and the sandy beach.  I then used NND's Wave stencil to create the cool, blue waves.  I added some palm trees to my scene using NND's Paradise Palms stamp set.  I stamped a couple surfing-lovin' felines from NND's Perfect Wave stamp set.  I then die cut a couple Polaroid picture frames and placed them over the felines.  I adhered and trimmed.  I added a sequin flower and leaves to the kitten holding the floral surf board and a little crab cut out to the boy's photo.  I sprinkled a few sequins and added some brown pearls on the palm, now turned coconut, trees!  I heat embossed the sentiment. That's it--a fun, playful little card just right for summer!

Now it's your turn to play with Cupcake Inspirations Challenge--Flowers with pearls and/or sequins!  Don't forget to check out the Double Trouble Challenge!

  3. What a cute scene you created. Thanks for partnering with us at Double Trouble and be sure you share your card with us since you have met our Thing 1 TicTacToe requirement for Row 3 Stencil, die cut and green. Hope to see you there and back for future fun challenges with Thing 1, 2 and 3.

  4. What a great beach scene - sure wish I was at a beach now. I love how you made the stamped images into photographs - so clever.
