Cupcake Inspirations Challenge 340

Sunday, December 13, 2015

Hi there!
Welcome to another Cupcake Inspirations Challenge, the last one of the year! Since we're taking a break until the new year starts, this challenge will run for 3 weeks. So that's plenty of time for you to grab your stamps and get some ink on them!

This week's sponsor is Stamp and Create!

I LOVE this color combo!
So bright and cheerful!!
Here is my take...

I wanted to keep it super bright and crisp by using a lot of white, and a CAS design on this card!

I used the Holiday Hugs stamp set from WPlus9, isn't it just so sweet and darling!?
So I am a Copic beginner, it is a lot more difficult than coloring with water based markers! Plus all I have is 14 basic colors so I really can't do that fancy shadowing stuff either... But I do love them, and hope to get better eventually...;-)

Do you like her polka dot leggings!? I used the tip of the marker to create them...cute, right!?

The sentiment is from the same set, it was heat embossed with white on vellum. I added that snippet of red ribbon underneath for more color, and make the white sentiment more visible. Those tiny sequins add some more color and sparkle also ;-) I just love sequins...*sigh*
