As Sweet As A Cupcake & MMSC 34

Happy Tuesday all! Yep, here is another card made using one of the new Belles 'n Whistles stamps from the Sweet Things Collection. This time I used 'Cupcake'. Isn't she adorable? And this stamp is so versatile. You can use it for lots of different occasions throughout the year, like Valentine, Birthday, Anniversary etc.

This is also my entry for this weeks Challenge at MMSC . They have a great sketch to work with and the DT has made some stunning creations!

I colored Belle using my Copics and Copics aribrushing system for the background. The flourishes were made using Spellbinders flourishes dies. I cut them out, embossed them and airbrushed the embossed parts using the dies as stencil. I added some half-pearls, pearl flourishes amd ribbon for decorating. DP is from Basic Greys last years Valentine collection 'Bittersweet'.


Froehlichen Dienstag wuenscche ich allen! Und noch eine Karte mit einem neuen Image aus der 'Sweet Things Collection' von Belles 'n Whistles. Diesmal ist es das suesse Belle Motiv 'Cupcake'. Und dieses Motiv ist auch so vielseitig das ganze Jahr durch, z.B. Geburtstag, Valentin, Hochzeitstag usw.

Mit dieser Karte habe ich mich auch eingetragen fuer die laufende Challenge bei MMSC. Dort gibt es einen tollen Sketch der viel Spass machte und das DT hat klasse Karten gezaubert.

Ich habe Belle wieder mit meinen Copics coloriert und auch den HG wieder geairbrushed. Die Schnoerkel habe ich aus gestanzt mit Spellbinders Flourishes Dies und dann embossed. Dann habe ich noch die gepraegten Teile geairbrushed und habe dazu die Dies als Schablone verwendet. Dekoriert habe ich die Karte mit Halbperlen, Perlen-Schnoerkeln und Band. Das DP ist von Basic Grey aus der Valentinskollektion 'Bittersweet' vom letzten Jahr.
