This week a came across a very cute challenge blog that I am playing along with for the very first time! The name of the challenge is "Cupcake Inspirations". This one was so cute, so I could not resist joining along. Here is the inspiration picture:
Now what you have to do is design a card inspired by the colors, and elements of the super cute cupcake pic! Here is my card for the challenge:
I used the new Stampin'Up! set "Just Believe". It is one of my very favorite sets out of the entire catalog. I used SU Early Espresso, and Pumpkin Pie classic inks, and Early Espresso, Pumpkin Pie, and Very Vanilla card stock. The flower was made using Pumpkin Pie DSP from the clearance section on the SU website. It's perfect for fall and at 3.99 for a pack you just can't beat it. The card was accented with vintage lace, and the new scallop ribbon punch from SU. I distressed the edges of the card with my SU paper distresser, and Early Espresso Ink and a make up sponge. Thank you for visiting my blog today and play along with this weeks Cupcake Challenge if you can!

For those of you that may not know this we found that we are going to have another boy! Oh my goodness two boys! We are thrilled that Cam will have a little brother, and Daddy couldn't be any happier. In honor of this happy news I made a baby boy card to show you today! The stamp set I used is "Bundled in Love" by Stampin' Up, and the super cute DSP is also by SU. To achieve the patch work quilt effect to glued several 3/4 inch strips to a 4.25x5.50 piece of paper and then ran it through my Cuttlebug using the SU Top Note Die. This is a great way to use up old scraps. The sentiment was spritzed with Shimmer Mist, and the edges distressed with Baja Breeze Ink. The embossing folder I used is by Sizzex. I hope that it is cooler wherever you are because it is CRAZY hot here. Thank you for visiting my blog and stay tuned to see cards made with some of the totally cute sets in the new Stampin' Up! Catalog!
