Cupcake Craft Challenge/Bearly Mine DT Card


Hello everyone, been busy this weekend with more cardmaking but cant show you yet as they are all DT pieces. My house is still spotless and we had another viewing. So its Monday again and another weeks crafting for most of us I hope. Today we have a new challenge over at the Cupcake Craft Challenge and this week we would like you to follow a sketch. The DT were given a digi image from Sandra Dry Digi Stamps to incorporate with the sketch and this is my take. I actually blew the cobwebs off my MM Slice for this card and my circles are perfect. I am a big fan of the Designer Extreme Papers from Bearly Mine Designs and after finding this paper off VOL 1, I new it would blend in perfectly with the image. I have used Sitting Rosabella and coloured her with Copic Markers and Stickles. Paper pieced her outfit, again with paper from the same CD. The backing paper itself I cut down to fit on my 6 x 6 and have highlighted with White Inksenntial Pen and Crystal Stickles. The sentiment was printed onto safmat from my computer and finished the card with a few embellishments.




I have made an insert for the card which matches the outer paper perfectly. This is also from Bearly Mine Designs and is called Designer Inserts Extreme. There are so many different styles and colours which are perfect for your card making. Add your own text and resize, its so easy to do.
I do hope you can join in with this weeks Cupcake Challenge, there is a great prize up for grabs. Sandra Dry is sponsering our challenge this week and is offering 6 digi images to one lucky person, but you need to be in it to win it. Pop on over to the Cupcake Challenge blog for more details and see what other goregous creations the rest of my DT buddies have come up with.
I am also entering this card into a few challenges, I just dont get as much time to play with them anymore but they are alot of fun.

Pile it On - Purple
Allsorts - Wings
Creative Inspirations - Paper Piecing

Back tomorrow with ICS!!
