Bridal Cupcakes

I saw a similar card when I was checking someone out at Target and knew I had to come home and recreate it. The original was by Papyrus. Mine is a bit different but I like it every bit as well.

The stamp is from Stubby Stampers. I think the cupcakes are really supposed to be birthday cupcakes but I think they work here just fine. The black cupcake liner is stamped on sparkly black cardstock and embossed with black diamond embossing powder. The mustache is a diecut from Memory Box. The white cupcake liner is stamped on a glittery off-white cardstock and embossed with white diamond embossing powder. The hardest part was finding the string of pearls. I knew I had some but couldn't remember where I put it. lol. The pearls are attached with scor-tape. The flower at the top is done with three flowers layered on top of each other with one pearl from the string on top. A little bit of stickles star dust was applied to the stars on the frosting. The scalloped paper is 8 x 8 by DCWV and folded in half. The dp is from Lawn Fawn. A length of organza ribbon runs under the cupcake layer. Such a fun bridal card.

This is a pretty simple card, but I thought it turned out well.

The stamp is from Art Impressions and colored with copics. Some stardust stickles is on the flames. The ribbon is wrapped around the card to look like a present. The scalloped square is a die from spellbinders. That's it.

Christmas Tilda

This card started out 5 1/2 x 4 1/4" and was supposed to be done but somehow it didn't "speak" to me so I ripped it apart and now I like it.

Tilda is colored with prisma color pencils on Kraft paper as are the poinsettias. The poinsettia centers have stickles applied to them. The dp is from Basic Grey. The holly is from memory box and is left over from another card. There is a strip of organza ribbon then a narrow silk ribbon with half pearls on top. The red sequins are from Queen & Co. 
Christmas is coming soon, I might be ready with cards - maybe. lol
