Cupcake Inspirations Challenge 394

Sunday, February 12, 2017

Hello there lovelies!
It's time for another Cupcake Inspirations Challenge!
This week's sponsor is awesome STAMPlorations!

We have this super fun color combo for you this week!
Here is my take...;-)

Confession...Black and red isn't my favorite color combo...
BUT! I just LOVE how this card turned out!!!

I used the Kathryn's Big Wishes stamp and die sets.
I stamped this cute girl with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored in with Copic Markers. Isn't she just so darn cute in her little red dress and black and white striped leggings!? I thought black hair was the perfect color for her ;-)

I stamped this big balloon with poppy ink then colored in with the same red marker as the girl's dress. I cut slits to securely place bow made with baker's twine. I punched out these tiny stars from white glitter paper and adhered them on the balloon to give some texture and sparkle.

I heat embossed all the sentiments that came with the stamp set in white on black cardstock, then chopped them up. The WISH was also heat embossed then fussy cut. I did like the way I had all these words but it needed something else, so I stamped a couple of images from the Mixed Media Elements Stamp Set in black. Of course I had to add some sequins as usual ;-)

I am also linking this up to the STAMPlorations Anything Goes Challenge!
This is my first time playing along with their challenge, but they have many other fun challenges and I will have to play more!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Hope you enjoyed it!
