Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #396

Welcome to the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #396!  This week the challenge is to use a cat theme on your card.  All of the details, including prize information, can be found on the Cupcakes Inspiration blog.  I hope you'll be able to play along!  This week our sponsor is Newton's Nook Designs.

I stamped the cat from Lil' Inker Designs new Stamp Talk stamp set and colored her in with my copic markers.  I stamped one of the sentiments from the stamp set repeatedly on my cardstock, masking off the edges with post-it note tape.  For the sentiment at the bottom, I die cut the smallest Pinking Edge Sentiment Flag Die Set in vellum.  Then I cut a piece of green paper with a die from the Dual Dotted Border Builder set and placed it on top of the vellum with foam tape.

To create the patterned paper background, I used the Color Blocking die which I love!  You can see a video on how this simple but genius die works, here.


The theme this week is "cats".  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 #396!  Thanks for stopping by!
