Cupcake Inspirations #371 ~ A Theme Challenge

Good morning friends~  A new challenge is up over at Cupcake Inspirations blog and it's a theme challenge:  "SHINE BRIGHT"

Our sponsor this week is the fabulous Neat & Tangled and they are generously offering up a $15 gift card to the winner, so you don't want to miss out on this opportunity to play along!

We had the opportunity to do a little discount shopping for this challenge, so I chose the Fractal Cloud  stamp set and coordinating die, along with Classic Tag #1 Die to create my card:  

I die cut the Fractal Cloud, then stamped it using versa-mark ink and heat embossed it in white on water color paper and added color using Zig pens, keeping the color mostly to the left of each fractal.  As that was drying, I cut the tag and stamped the fractal rain drops onto the tag and repeated the process and then stamped the sentiment in versa-mark ink and heat embossed it in black.

I stamped a script background onto a stitched rectangle and added it to a white card base with a skinny banner cut out of coordinating card stock.  The tag was placed over top with some pretty Glacier Mix Sequins and a seam binding bow to finish it off. 


Be sure to visit the other designers to see how they were inspired this week and then join in on the fun!

I'll also be adding this to the following challenges:

Word Art Wednesday

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings~ Birgit

  2. Your fractal clouds and rain, placed on a tag and set atop a script background...swooning! A gorgeous translation of the inspiration photo and lovely showcase of that cloud die! Adding to my wish list! Little Tangles has a 'shaker and sequins' challenge on their site: your card fits this challenge to a "t". Would love to see you link up there...we could be 'neighbours' in the gallery! Here's the link: http://littletangles.blogspot.ca/2016/08/challenge-71-shakers-and-sequins.html

  6. I absolutely LOVE this sweet card, my friend. I saw it over on the Cupcake Inspirations Blog and just had to come by to comment. I will try to play along, but I don't have any "diamonds" so I will need to get really creative. Thanks for the inspiration, and for sharing this sweet card in our challenge.
