Cupcake craft challenge #171–DT card


Please scroll down to see my Stamp with Fun DT card

Hello again friends.  I’m back as promised with my DT card for this week’s cupcake craft challenge and the lovely Rachel has set the theme this week and she has chosen “D.I.Y – make your own backing papers”.  I went through lots of options such as heat embossing, using my promarkers to make my background but eventually settled on using distress inks to colour my base card.  Here is my card:

CCC challenge 171 - create your own paper

I have used another new image from DigiStamp Boutique called ‘Lucy and stocking’ and again it is one of the 5 new offers of the month for December.  I have to confess that I actually only own 2 different colours of distress inks so that is why I chose this particular colour combo on my card lol!  I randomly sponged my base card with the distress inks but also stamped some small snowflakes (elzybells stamp) in the same colours to add a bit of definition.  I’m really happy with the overall effect and may buy a few more colours to try it out again.  The sentiment is SU from the ‘best yet’ stamp set,

Our sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp and one lucky winner will receive a $20 gift certificate to spend in their online store.


Don’t forget we also have our ‘icing on the cupcake’ sponsor, who for December is Polka Doodles and two lucky winners will receive a copy of the Pretty Sweet CD

What a blessing to have found your blog. Thanks for entering this ADORABLE card in our Tie One On Challenge at Penny's. It's just so cute. We appreciate your participation.
I was SO excited to learn, through your blog, about the challenge at Cupcake Craft Challenges. I got busy and made paper tonight, and will be entering the challenge in the morning when there's enough light to photograph my card. Thanks for both entering our challenge, and inspiring me to get busy on yours! I'd love to have you stop by after tomorrow when I post my card/entry. I'd love to follow you, and see if you'd like to follow me when you visit. Thanks again for double inspiration!
