Sunday's Cupcake inspiration challenge 14

Hi everyone! Today is Hope Stamps Eternal's Cupcake Inspiration Challenge, 14! These are some ka-uuuute cupcakes, BUT I don't have any penguin stamps or images, and had the hardest time -I just couldn't see past them! So, eventually I went with the soft pastel colors on the frosting in Basic Grey's Wisteria DP!

Check out these delicious cuppies!!

Everyone is invited to play along. Just post a link to your creations to the HSE blog (linked above) and be sure to use keyword CIC14 on SCS.

Here is my card. It's actually a triple challenge card. I combined it with today's SCS Featured Stamper challenge. This week we are honoring B-Gin-R! What a fantastic gallery she has! It took me quite a while to settle on this lovely card. I kept the same general layout and the use of a Greeting Farm image, but changed the papers and some key elements -like adding lace at the bottom. I used Miss Anya Stamp Set -love these images. I usually don't care for images without noses or mouths, but for the most part she is always looking down, so I kinda forgive it! LOL!

This is also for the Copic Creations challenge 7-to color brunette hair. I colored this image with Copics and used, seriously about 15 markers on it!! Whew! But, I love this copic challenge blog because has such inspiration. The lace is from my granny's tin, the rhinestones are Kaiser in Light Green and the sentiment is from Verve, Circular Sayings.

Card Deets:
Stamps - Miss Anya, circular sayings
Paper - Bordering blue, white, Wisteria
Accessories - Copic markers, rhinestones, lace, cuttlebug flowers die

  1. I'm right with you on this Miss Anya stamps, and the "younger" Anya and Ian stamps. There are several other stamp lines out there with no noses/mouths, and they just don't work for me, but I can't get enough of the Anya/Miss Anya ones.

    Your card is just lovely!

  18. Michelle, I love your card! Your image is adorable, you colored her wonderfully, and I love the way you put the whole card together. (Shame on you, though, for distracting me with all those hunky pictures of Edward.) This card is too sweet. Thanks so much for joining our Copic Creations Brunette challenge.
