Cards for Challenges

Hi, everyone! Well, it’s time! Have you been putting off those Valentines until the last minute? Well, Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff is having a sale, so now’s the time! She’s running a sale on all of her holiday stamps right now! Run over to her store and grab some while they’re on sale! Now here is a little inspiration for you:

This card was made using the doily heart from the Love Grows Here digistamp collection. I used this week’s sketch from Card Positioning Systems, and took the inspiration challenges from Cupcake Crafts and Cute Card Thursday challenges. The challenge at Cupcake Crafts this week is to use red and white all over.Cute Card Thursday's challenge for this week is "Spots and Dots". The card base is just plain white cardstock that I ran through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder, topped off with a scrap of red and white polka dot cardstock (I think from American Crafts), white lace strip from my grandmas’s sewing basket, and the digistamp from Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff that I colored with Copics, stitched with red and white baker’s twine, and used a tiny hole punch for the details, and popped it up with foam Pop Dots.
The second card is a birthday card I made for my sister-in-law using this week’s sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches. The cupcake paper is from Creative Imaginations, topped with a scrap of a lavender/pink cardstock that I ran through the Cuttlebug with my D’vine Swirls folder, topped with some sheer embroidered white ribbon that has been in my stash forever, and topped with Lindsay’s All Around phrases digistamp, with one of the cupcakes from her Sweet Stuff collection centered in it. I cut the circle out with my Cricut, Plantain Schoolbook cartridge, and the center point function. Then I colored, Stickled and glittered it to my hearts content (nothing is as satisfying as a pretty, sparkly cupcake, lol). Yum-No calorie sweetness!
