I went with bright colors for this challenge.  I pulled out one of my favorite dies from Frantic Stamper called Elementals #14 Scalloped Square Basics.  This die cut the scalloped frame and the inside stitched square.  I then used the same die set to cut the little oval(ish) words out of patterned paper and then finished it off with some twine from The Twinery and a few sequnis from Pretty Pink Posh.

and now the sweet inside...

I used coordinating paper to match the front and then die cut the Lil' Inker Designs Hello Word die twice to give it a shadow.  


The theme this week is "Sweet Inside" which means to decorate the outside AND inside of your card.  You can choose to use the cupcake graphic for inspiration if you'd like but you don't have to, as long as your card or project fits the theme.

I hope you'll join us this week for the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #373!  Thanks for stopping by!

Hello (or goodbye?) Summer


Jen Carter Hello Summer Fishing Front

Summer is winding down (school starts this week!) and so I thought I better share this card before I have to wait a year, LOL!  This was an easy card to put together! I  used a piece of patterned paper for the background and just added the Fishing Pole die from Frantic Stamper and a few strips of patterned paper at the top!  Easy Peasy!



Thanks for stopping by today!

Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #371

Welcome to the next Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #371!  This week the challenge is to use the theme Shine Bright on your card!  Our sponsor this week and the prize is from Neat & Tangled Stamps. All of the details, including prize information, can be found on the Cupcakes Inspiration blog.  I hope you'll be able to play along!

For the "Shine Bright" theme this week I thought of sunshine.  I LOVE Neat & Tangled's Scandinavian Prints stamp set (with coordinating dies).  When I was looking at the stamp set I thought that one of the flower stamps looked like a whimsical sun so I started there.  To make the clouds, I die cut the largest flower from the die set out of the blue patterned paper and then cut it in half.  It made a great cloud shape!  I found several bright patterned papers to die cut my flowers with and on the blue ones I stamped images from the set on the paper.  The mats were die cut from a die set found here and here. The grass and sentiment is also from the Scandinavian Prints stamp set.


The theme this week is "Shine Bright".  You can choose to use the cupcake graphic for inspiration if you'd like but you don't have to, as long as your theme has something to do with "Shine Bright".
