With my hubby away golfing all weekend I thought I wasn't going to get to stamp but while Ella was napping (not actually napping but resting in her bed because she was too stubborn to sleep) I got some stamping done. I tried Taylor's Cupcake Challenge #25 over at Taylored Expressions. This is the first time trying her challenge and I had lots of fun!
So much so that I made my "Need a Snack" swap cards with it! I hope they all like how they turned out!I am totally addicted to swaps over at SCS lately!
So here's my swap card:
I used the Stamping Bella image Mommy and Baby Cupcakes.
I absolutely love this image! I also used the saying from Stamping Bella- Its a Cupcake Thing!
I decided to color the cupcakes with my SU markers Lovely Lilac, Lavender Lace, Barely Banana and Pretty in Pink. I then used my versmark and rubbed it all over my image and heat embossed it with Iridescent Ice. The card base is 5 1/2 by 4 1/4inches in elegant eggplant. Then I placed a white mat 5 1/4 by 4 inches on top of that. Then I cut a strip (2 inches by 3 3/4) of Pretty in Pink print designer series paper from the hostess pack and layered that on the left side of the card. I added various circles. Then the saying in the upper right corner and some doodling with a black pen!
I am off to relax with the kids and watch a DVD!
But first I have to ask your honest opinion on something!
I would like you to please leave me a comment telling me if there is anything you would change about my blog.
All you (said lovingly) "lurkers" out there if you could participate also I would love to hear from you.
I am just wondering what you would like to see to make my blog better.
Mind you I can take constructive criticism so have at it ladies and tell me the truth.
Whether its more info about my cards, less family talk, more 3d items or whatever, I would love to hear about what you think!
Also I will pick someone from the comments and you will receive a little something from me!
Thank you in advance and have a lovely evening!
