Hey Cupcake...


Hello and happy Thursday. I made this card for todays Cute Card Thursday Challenge. The theme for this week is to create a scene.... weeeeelll... still into Valentines mood and obviously thinking about sweet stuff all the time (iam on a diet :-) i used for my card the new Alota Rubberstamp cupcake with dressy Tilda from the New Years Collection. Both stamps work perfectly together and so do many more of Helene's new images. Since my layer behind Tilda felt a bit empty, even tho i airbrushed and stamped around the frame some scrolls in "Going Grey" (stamped once off) i added a piece of tulle behind her to give it more interest. I tied a know on the left and the right and adhered it with glue dots to the card. To make the knots look prettier, i added some bows tied with pink Taffeta ribbon. I sewed the card with silver thread and added highlights with a glitter pen here and there to repeat the sparkle from the thread.
Blog candy Alert: Please come visit Pretty Pressings tomorrow when i will be able to show you 2 brand new sets that are going to be released. Alota sponsored one complete sheet for one lucky winner. Those new stamps are going to be wonderful :-) because you can use your existing tools and give your projects and cards a entire new look for really not much effort.
Here is a picture of the inside of my card.. i used the Martha Stewart tiny hearts punch to create a matching frame (very Vanilla layer) this was soooo easy see the scallops how nicely they even matched up on the corners??? i was quite surprised because i did not measure or anything just punched :-) looove it. Third pic is a bit dark but it was the only way to show the scrolls i have stamped with a set that my friend Kristine bought me in Norway it is called Grundge set.

Nicole said...

Good Morning Everybody!

Just wanted to say how much I love your web site! I simply adore the patterns, and coloured text, it really does look amazing!
Those cards are totally cute too, perfect ready for Valentines Day coming up!
Ahhhh!!!!!!!!! I am getting really stressed out over Valentines Day already! Last year I was really down, and to compensate I ate A LOT of ice-cream! I really hope this year will be different! Don't you think there is always so much pressure on everyone to "get it right" with Valentines Day cards/booking meals way in advance/flowers/gifts... the list goes on!! However, I have found a new way to send greetings, and this all down to my lovely friend Alice. She sent me an e-Card for Christmas, (she was in New Zealand over the festive season) and I thought it was such a cool way to send greetings, I have now been converted!
I have trawled the internet and have found some really cool sites, but my fav one so far is called http://www.ecards.co.uk I found it really easy to use and the best thing is that it's free! Lots of different themes of cards to choose from, and lots of funny, and cute ones too. There is a great application where you can load your own photos and add them to the card.(This is called Face It) I put one of my mum in there and sent it to her, he said it made her smile. You can load different photos of your friends into different cartoon characters! My favorite one is the cartoon of Elvis dancing!
Just wanted to share my findings with you! Hope you have a good Valentines Day whatever you do!
Love, Hugs and Peace, Nicole.
