Cupcake Craft Challenge – Don’t look at the light!

Hello! Hope everyone had a great weekend. I’m here today with a new Cupcake Craft Challenge today – Don’t look at the light – sparkles aplenty! I love me a bit of bling, but I kept it pretty subtle for this card.

We have two wonderful sponsors for this week – Cupcake Cards & Craft who are giving one lucky winner a paper collection of their choice and Saturated Canary who will be giving a winner two images of their choice. And our fab sponsor for this month is Polka Doodles – two winners will receive the Pretty Sweet CD.

Hope you have a chance to play along this week and don’t forget to check out all the great inspiration over on the Cupcake blog!

Thank You!

I don’t often make card sets, but I thought I would start coming up with some single layer thank you note sets to expand my collection (apologies for the bad photos!).

I love Papertrey Ink’s Dot Spot & thought it would be fitting for the job. I stamped the double-ended banner stamp from Banner Builders and masked it off when stamping the dot image.

I also did matching & lined envelopes for this set – its amazing how much a decorated envelope can enhance a card! I used various Papertrey Ink Bitty Dot & Bitty Box papers in purples & pinks.

This card is for the current ‘Bring the Bling’ challenge at CAS-ual Friday.

Thanks for stopping by!

More wedding fun

Feeling pretty exhausted today at work after going to a great wedding last night. My husband was the best man and my in-laws were here as well, so we had a busy weekend. No time for card making, but plenty of time for celebrating. Have a lot of work to do now to get ready for the holiday card rush, but thought I would share the card I made for the happy newlyweds – managed to get this done yesterday about an hour before the wedding!

Over at Wee Memories, Jenny is running a challenge using pink, which is easy-peasy for me as I use it a lot! The design was inspired by the sketch over at Card Positioning Systems – simple, clean lines – just my style. The card is also inspired by a Maile Belles card I saw in a previous issue of Paper Crafts Magazine. I’m also submitting it for the Passion for Papertrey challenge using scraps as I was able to pull all these paper bits from my scrap drawer!

Thanks for visiting!

Paper: cardstock (Papertrey Ink)
