** THIS IS MY SECOND POST FOR TODAY **
Please scroll down to see my Stamp with Fun DT card
Hello again everyone. I’m back with my card for this week’s cupcake craft challenge and this week we are super excited as we are celebrating our 3rd birthday. We’ve got lots of amazing prizes and also a fun Treasure Hunt for you to take part in. I’ll give you the details of this week’s challenge first then I’ll explain all about the Treasure Hunt. I apologise now as this is going to be a long post, so grab a cuppa and a biscuit (or two!) and get comfy.
Our challenge this week has been set by the lovely Faye and she has given us a gorgeous sketch to work with. It’s a lovely simple sketch so very open to your interpretation. Here is my card:
and here is Faye’s fab sketch:
I have used a super cute image from Tickled Pink stamps called ‘Lil Pinkette – Coraline’ and coloured her with my promarkers. The papers are papermania from the ‘happy birthday to you’ paper pad and the black cardstock is SU. The butterfly and cupcake are really sparkly IRL as I covered them with stickles but it’s not showing up in the pic that well. I really love this sketch as I love the clean lines of it and will definitely be using it again.
Now we have lots of wonderful sponsors this week. Crafty Emma’s store is offering a £10 gift voucher, Cupcake Card and Craft is offering a ‘soft whispers paper collection’ (picture on the challenge blog), Digi's with Attitude is offering a $10 gift certificate, Inky Impressions is offering 1 stamp and a goodie bag, The Stamping Boutique is offering 5 digi images of the winner's choice and Tickled Pink Stamps are offering either 1 rubber stamp or 2 digi images of the winner’s choice. Wow doesn’t that sound amazing!
On top of that we also have our ‘icing on the cupcake’ sponsors, and for August we have 3 as it is our birthday month. Firstly we have Crafts U Love who are offering a £15.00 voucher to spend in their online store, secondly we have Mo’s Digital Pencil who are offering a $10.00 gift code to use in their online store and thirdly we have Sew Sweet who are offering a £10.00 gift voucher to spend in their online store. So definitely lots of yummy reasons to play along this month.
Now as I mentioned earlier we are having a birthday Treasure Hunt. To be eligible to win Treasure, you will need to leave a comment on the post you find the Treasure on. There are 3 different Treasures to be won. The comment will need to include your Inlinkz number, as you are only able to enter if you play along in this week’s challenge. You will also need to add a picture of the Treasure to your sidebar, linking back to Cupcake. You can enter all 3 Treasures, if you find them, so long as you enter our challenge this week, leave a comment as above and include one treasure picture on your sidebar. Winners will be randomly drawn from all the comments on the relevant posts, noon on Sunday but don’t forget you must follow the rules mentioned above.
I am honoured to tell you that I am a “Treasure Keeper” and this is the fantastic prize you can win.
