Paper Sweeties Cupcake Inspirations Sponsorship

Sunday, May 8, 2016

Morning, friends!  Just stopping in to share that Paper Sweeties is sponsoring the Cupcake Inspirations challenge this week, and I've used a few of my Paper Sweeties goodies to cook up a little number, boasting a bunting, as per the sponsorship challenge.
I started this card by trimming the bottom edge of a piece of soft blue, stitched, patterned paper with a hand-cut scrap of gold, foil, polka dot, patterned paper and anchoring them both, to the white, cardstock, card face, with white-threaded, straight, machine stitches.
The bunting was then created with the bottom portion of the kite image from Happy Fall, Y'all.  I just stamped the image, over and over again, in Jet Black ink, on scraps of coordinating, patterned papers; fussy cut them out; adhered them across their top edges; and framed their ends with Baker's Twine bows.
The surf board was stamped, in Jet Black ink, on a bit of triangle, patterned paper; hand-cut out; and adhered, in its respective position, with foam tape.
The palm tree and the toy boat were both stamped, in Jet Black ink, on watercolor paper and watercolored.  The prior was die-cut out and embellished with a trio of Sugar Sprinkles sequins, and the latter was simply hand-cut.  Both were popped up with more foam tape.
Finally, although it was tucked into the design prior to this point in the instructions, the sentiment was stamped, in Jet Black ink, on a hand-cut, vellum, banner and anchored, flush against the bottom, right edge of the "sandy" paper, into the white-threaded, straight, machine-stitched frame.
Further inspiration for this challenge came from House of Card's May Challenge: Clear Papers...
and here's Cupcake Inspirations' Challenge 359: Bunting graphic to get you off and sailing in the right direction.
Paper Sweeties is offering a $25 gift certificate to this week's winner.
Be sure to stop by both the Paper Sweeties and Cupcake Inspirations blogs to get all of your challenge details, as well as to see how both teams were inspired by the theme.  Thanks so much for humbling me with a visit!  Have a wonderful week, y'all!  Hugs!
