Happy Saturday! Wow, it's been a whole week since I posted anything and that long since I did any crafting. The new year is proving to be a tad bit too busy! Anyway, I am late posting this for the CPS challenge tonight, but I am submitting it anyway. Took me a bit to get my bearings after a week away from the crafting table. And, when I finished with this card, I realized I used the same colors as the last card I posted! Oh well, everything just fell into place tonight so that's OK.
Again, I needed a masculine card. I am beginning to think there are too many men in my family! hahaha I AM joking! The snowboard digital stamp was great and I kept thinking of what else to do for a male teen birthday card and I was looking at birthday stamps and BAM! Icing is like snow......so why not have the snowboarder 'snowboard' over the frosting of a cupcake. So, I printed the cupcake on four different colors of cardstock, then pieced it all together and coordinated them with some of the paper strips behind the images.
Stamps: Happy Birthday, Inkadinkadoo; Snowboarder digital stamp from Bird's Cards; cupcake digital stamp, Lindsay's Stamp Stuff.
Paper: DP, Making Memories 'Just Chillin'; orange textured cardstock, Bazzill; chocolate, light blue and white cardstock.
Ink: Staz On Timber Brown
Extras: Number punches; turquoise star brads; orange brads; oval metal frame.
I have LOADS of cards to do in the next few days as I did not get my Christmas cards finished and so they are becoming New Year's/Winter Blessings/Valentine cards. There is always a way to improvise.
More to come...
