Anything Goes and a Cupcake Inspiration
Look at those Yummy Bright Cupcakes...These are the CIC58 inspiration at Hope Stamps Eternal this week. I just loved the fun, bright colors so thats what I went with for the inspiration on my card. Granted my colors are slightly different but equally as bright and fun.
The object it to create what inspires you and even though I don't match the cupcakes colors totally you can see where the fun colors/patterns inspired me.
I found this super cute Frog stamp at the LSS the other day. It's a .99 stamp set from (We R Memory Keepers).
The patterned paper is also WRMK paper from the Sunny Forecast line. I used some Tangerine Tango for my orange accents and the frog is mounted on an "unknown" color of card stock. It's an SU color but doesn't match any of my SU card stock so I'm thinking it's an older color or one that was off a shade from the color it was suppose to be. It just happened to match the colors in the patterned paper really well so I went with it. The frog was stamped with Wild Wasabi ink on Very Vanilla card stock. The sentiment was stamped with Crushed Curry ink. I added 3 Orange Brads (Queen and Co.) and the eyes of the frog are tiny black pearl (Zva) The fly trail is Hemp Twine. My ric-rac piece was done using a punch by EK Success and the flies wings have Frosted Stickles on them. I'm sending this off for another group I belong to doing an (Anything Goes) swap where we can use stuff from any company we want. I hope my partner likes her card.
Below is Coleen and her version of this card. She stamped this and put it together all by herself. She was so proud of her card and for a 5 year old I think she did a wonderful job with it.
