We have a new sponsor, STAMPlorations, for the Curtain Call Inspiration: Pin Cushion!  A randomly selected participant in the Pin Cushion challenge will receive a $15 gift certificate to use at  STAMPlorations, while the LEAD will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!



I used the 



How can anyone resist a cupcake?!!!

cardstock:  papertrey ink  paper:  jillibean  stamps:  stamplorations/sketched cupcake  ink:  zing white  other:  papertrey ink vellum, mme enamel dots, jillibean tab

I was inspired by the construction of the pin cushions and brought the design into my base panel.  I layered 3 strips of paper onto the grey/green base.

I heat embossed the Sketched Cupcake on the vellum circle (inspired by the shape of the pin cushions) and 'sprinkled' it with enamel dots.

Here's the interior of the card:

  1. Aren't those STAMPlorations cupcakes and cakes tooooo much fun! Your showcase here: charming! You've launched a cupcake craving...
    Catching up has been a spectacular start to my day; every card and project pure delight. Highlights: your card with the 'make a snowman' envelope (I'm in love with that die set...one of these days I'll take the plunge and order), and your embroidery hoop tag. You are incredibly talented, my friend - and your generosity in sharing your gift with us, only heart-warming! Happy Saturday!
    Hugs~c
