Hey There, Cupcake

Hey there, cupcake :)  Welcome to The Paper Players challenge, where this week Anne Marie has a color challenge for us.  Check it out:



And here's my card...


I used this week's Fall To Layout for my layout. As well, I had to join in on the 200th challenge at Friday Mashup!  Congrats to the team on 200 challenges!  The two challenges I chose were #89 Heat Embossing and #178 Stitching.

To make my card, I white-embossed both the cupcake and the sentiment onto a Crumb Cake card base.  I then colored the cupcake with Hero Arts Unicorn white ink.  Once it was dry, I lightly colored the image with Crisp Cantaloupe, So Saffron and Wild Wasabi ink.


The icing on the cupcake started to pill a bit because I worked it too much so I camouflaged that by painting on some Wink of Stella.

For the side panel, I die cut one of the dies from the Speech Trio set. I then got out the sewing machine and stitched it to the card base.  

And that's pretty much it!  Thanks for visiting.  Be sure to check out how the rest of the design team have used these pretty colors.




Products used:

Stamps:  Cutie Pie (CTMH)
Ink:  Versamark, Hero Arts Unicorn White, Crisp Cantaloupe, Wild Wasabi, So Saffron (SU)
Cardstock:  Crumb Cake
Accessories:  White EP, Speech Trio dies (Mama Elephant), Wink of Stella, sewing machine

Cheers
Karren

So cute and fun! I love the white embossing!

KT Fit Kitty said...

I always love white embossing, especially on kraft. I guess it's called Crumb Cake but it looks similar to kraft. I like the word bubble too! I'm new to the Friday Mashup but I'm joining the celebration too!

Love how you used the speech bubble as a border, Karren! So clever! I've never tried coloring over white on Crumb Cake but your card is inspiring me. Such a sweet creation with these colors--great job!
