Just checking in quickly to share my take in Cupcake Inspirations Challenge # 371, Shine Bright.
I used a diamond diecut from Ellen Hutson to represent the bright theme. I also used a perfume packaging that has this cool shiny finish to diecut the diamond. I think that both reflects the theme eh? I also added a vellum behind the diecut to show some see-through feel in its sparkle 🙂
For my cupcake I colored it using watercolor. Then I added a striped vellum on the sides and some sequins for some more shine & brightness.
My card sketch inspiration is from CAS on Sunday: Challenge # 89.
A closer look at this diamond diecut sparkle

I found this card sketch at Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog, Sip and Share. And knowing me being a coffee drinker and card sketch lover must case the sketch.
I have this polka dot printed vellum and washi tapes on my stash so why not make use of them this time.
My stamp is from Simon Says Stamp while the sentiment is from Paper Smooches. I colored the goat with promarkers and die cut the same with its coordinating die. For the strings, I added an embroidery thread behind the goat, great to add texture, also some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

Popping in to share this card I did for The Damsel of Distressed, The Hop to Stop. The card creation is using purple, the color of National Domestic Violence Awareness month.
A great support from amazing manufacturers in the crafting industry is also taking part in the awareness.
In my card, I used the stamps from Mommy Lhey Designs Time of the Month stamps and colored them with promarkers. It’s a teeny tiny stamp but had fun coloring and fussy cutting them 🙂
I’m using a card sketch from Sketch N Scrap, sketch # 59.

I feel sort of under the weather today so what would be a better way to combat the feeling is to make a fun and happy card.
Crafting is a way for me to relax so I made this super quick card using stamps that I bought in Michaels store way back when I visited Las Vegas.
I stamped the cutesy animals in the background, then colored 3 of the images in the set as highlights.
I used Pretty Pink Posh dies to cut my vellum tag behind the mini squares. So quick and easy. Feels much better after creating this card.

And so..kicking with my first card project for the year is a fun coloring using Some Odd Girl digistamp, Mae. I used coordinating colored papers and vellum to complement the image colors. For texture I used some sequins to also mimic the vellum polka dots in the background.

I had the chance to play with some of my recently purchased craft supplies during the black Friday sale 🙂
I used Sweet Stamp Shop Too Hip stamp which has this cute Hippo 🙂 I colored him with promarker then fussy cut him and the hat. The frame is from a die company Lil’ Inker Designs that I’ve been eyeing for sometime now. Love those stitch details along the square edge.
Note that this card is also my take in Muse Card Challenge #97.
The muse for the challenge is from Therese Calvird and this is her card..
Now this is my take for the challenge..
For the background stamping, I used Paper Smooches Needle Little Love stamp for the stitched swirl and also added some die cut star vellum for some texture.
Quick & easy card to make.
