I just love it when I can use materials that I have had for a while. The little bow on the cupcake is some raffia that I've had forever (in fact I think I stole if from my mom when I moved out).
Anyway, I started by stamping the cupcake in brown, and then adding the little bow and cherry. To the cherry I added some Glossy Accents.
Then I stamped and embossed the sentiment in white.
Before adhering the cupcake down, I ran the background papers through my sewing machine with a zig-zag stitch. I just love the look of stitching on a card.
After all that, and when I got the cupcake on, I still felt like it needed something, so I added the three buttons on the right.
This card I am linking up to Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday challenge blog. Their challenge was Easter or Sweet Treats. Obviously, I went with the sweet treats:)
This next card is for OWH's Sunday Sketch Challenge. I kept it simple with just a bit of patterned paper and the sentiment. Then I stamped some silver stars on the bottom. I did a little bit of diagonal scoring as well.
The design is flipped from the original sketch, but that's because I started scoring on the wrong side of the card. I had to fold it over so the raised part would be on the outside.
So note to self: think about which side is the right side before scoring!

So glad you found me! This blog is my little space where I can share bits about my life and my latest crafting projects (mostly handmade cards). My goal is to share, inspire, and to be a positive presence in the creative community.
