Good Afternoon Everyone,
Hope you guys are ready for a long post - this post is filled with sugary sweets! I always look forward to Fridays for a few reasons - and one of them is to check out Taylor's sketch for her Friday Cupcake Challenge #50. Above is her sketch #50 and I love it it - what a fun sketch. Well, I got right on it - this morning as my daughter napped. Here is my take on her sketch:
In my head the owls are both trying to get the squirrel to give them the cupcake - Who loves you? LOL! It was funny in my head - and that's when you know that you are addicted to stamps - when they make you laugh :)
I loved stamping up these cute little owls - and I am so grateful for my little daughter for taking a nice nap today so that mommy could get some stamp time in :) Maybe its because my New Year's Resolution was to stay away from sugary sweetness that I went nuts and made 4 more cards with cupcakes or cakes on them! I sooo wanted to eat a cupcake but instead I thought I would stamp them... All these four cards below are made for Julee Tilman's Verve Release: Looking For Love. This is a fantastic new release - that you have to check out. Julee challenged us to try to complete all 4 challenges - and I was up for the challenge to get my mojo going again :)
Julee's first challenge was a color challenge to use the colors of red riding hood, kraft and blush blossom. I had to try Lynn's technique this week over at SCS to use tack strips and glitter - boy, was she right when she suggested to make this card when you are not around kids or pets!! I got a ton of sparkles all over me - but hey - who doesn't love that!
(The papers are from DCVW, Glitter from Taylored Expressions, red grosgrain ribbon, SU stamp (not sure from where, buttons from stash, crystal stickles, corner rounder and dimensionals) Below is a card made for the second sketch challenge - I loved these cupcakes and cute little birdie from Hero Arts. I started out with one cupcake (I loved these three colors and paper and I pieced three to figure out which combo I like - but ended up liking all three...so I just ended up stacking them all :)
(The DP is from K&CO, cardstock from DCVW, liquid pearls, sponge, corner rounder for scallops). This next card was made for the third sketch challenge and for this challenge, I made this Let It Snow cuppie from Taylor's stamps - I realized that this little guy had not yet been inked - and that is just not right!!! This cute little cuppie is from TayIor's Season's Sweetings set . I created a little scene for cuppie with some threading and liquid pearls. Both the dark and light teal cardstock are super glittery and so this card is very sparkly IRL.. (the papers are from DCVW, the ribbon from K&CO., Martha Stewart snowflake punch, bling from stash, liquid pearls).
This is last card made for the fourth sketch and can I just tell you that I just adore this image - from Taylor's Love is Sweet set, I mean .. two cuppies smooching -- toooo cute! LOVE it! I made this card using Stacy's Jewelry Color Inspiration #18. The colors for this week's challenge was to make a card using apricot appeal, chocolate chip, pink passion, pink pirouette and certainly celery. If you haven't checked out her blog - please go over for a visit! Loved these colors! I paper pieced the cuppies, added a little stickles on her cheek and added a little liquid pearl accent on the bottom. (paper from DCVW and stash, ribbon from stash - and the brad is been in my possession for 2 years - so glad I finally used it!!!)
hmmm... its official - I love stamping with cupcakes :) Actually, anything with cupcakes is just adorable!!
As our son says: "Who doesn't like cupcakes?" !!! (I know, right!??!!) Here is a cute little pic of some pajamas that my MIL bought for our daughter.... love the little frosting by her lips - the shirt says: I love cupcakes! Speaking of which, I am off for a little walk with my two little cupcakes :)
Another reason I love Fridays is that we do our Friday Sneak Peeks over at our Cinema Challenge blog - see if you can guess which movie we are going to pick for tomorrow's cinema inspired card from the sneak peek that is posted there!!!
Have a wonderful Friday my friends!!! May it be filled with cupcakes, cakes and all sorts of sweet wonderfulness!!!
Thanks so much for visiting!!!
Ciao for now,
