SFF 123011

Good Friday morning everyone! Wow! The 2011 year is about to close out! I can hardly believe it! I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season! And I hope that you will find some time to play along with us at Sketch Frenzy Friday. This week's sketch was created by Sharon Wheet. Take a look!

And here is what I came up with!

Since I made most of these cards before I left for Christmas vacation, I needed to remind myself that I should make cards other than Christmas. It's hard for me to shift gears like that. So to make it easier for me, I turned to the Create a Cupcake set and coordinating cupcake builder punch. I can always count on these two things to help me create a quick, easy and cute card! I started with a card base of Blushing Bride. Then I adhered a piece of Poppy Parade that I had run through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. Then I took a piece of Early Espresso and adhered a piece of designer paper from the Just Add Cake pack. Around this I wrapped a piece of Poppy Parade poly twill ribbon. I added a tail that is tied with a piece of white baker's twine. This panel is popped up on the card. Then I punched a piece of Early Espresso with the 2 3/8" scallop circle punch. I adhered a piece of Whisper White card stock that was cut with the circles #2 die. This is popped up onto the card. Then I stamped the cupcake top in Blushing Bride and the cupcake bottom in Wild Wasabi onto Whisper White and punched them out with the cupcake builder punch. These were popped up on the circle. Then I punched out a heart from Poppy Parade and adhered it to the cupcake. I stamped the greeting in Early Espresso onto the card and added three little rhinestones.
