Crazy 4 Challenges - Cake

It's going to get sweet up in here!  The Crazy 4 Challenges team are adding cake, cupcakes or yummy treats to our cards this week.  I decided to use Karen Burniston's Cupcake Pop Up for my card today.  I stamped the sentiment from Birthday Wishes for You onto Pistachio Pudding and then used Calypso Coral Stampin' Write Marker to color it in.  I am using Tutti-Frutti Cards & Envelopes from the Sale-a-bration catalog.  The envelopes have a coordinating pattern on both sides of the flaps - fun!
 Sweetness overload!  I sponged Calypso Coral onto the frosting and Chocolate Chip onto the bottom of the cupcakes.  I added a banner sentiment using Party with Cake stamp set.  I love the washi tape all around the edges of the card.
Happy Stampin', 
Raquel

Party Pandas

This Party Pandas stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration catalog is so much fun!  I stamped the pandas onto a 1 3/4 circle and adhered inside of the negative area of the Starburst punch.  I used a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker to trace inside of the starbursts and around the sentiment.

My card base is another Sale-A-Bration item called Frutti-Tutti Cards & Envelopes.  They have a pattern on the front and the inside is white.  There are coordinating envelopes (as the title says LOL) and they are super fun with patterns on both sides of the flaps of the envelope.  I couldn't help but decorate one of those envelopes as well.  I die cut the sentiment using Celebrate You Thinlits from a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock that has Brusho on it.  I sponged Pacific Point on the bottoms of the sentiment and traced around the edges to make it stand out more.

Happy Stampin', 
Raquel

Crazy 4 Challenges - Sketch

It's the third Saturday of the month and that means it's sketch time with Crazy 4 Challenges.  I stamped the flowers from the Helping Me Grow stamp set with Black StazOn.  I then colored in the flowers with a white crayon so the Brusho would resist coloring in the flowers when I sprayed rubbing alchohol on it.
Once the piece was dry, I used Banner Framelits to die cut the shape I needed to follow along with the sketch.  I also used the new Starburst Punch and I fussy cut the sentiment from Birthday Wishes for You.

Happy Stampin',

Karen Burniston Paper Pros Challenge - Love

It's time for the Paper Pros challenge!  The theme of love was set by Caz Counsil.  I added a Woodland Character to my Brusho embossing background.  I sprinkled Brusho into the Honeycomb Embossing Folder, spritzed with water then ran it through my Big Shot.
As you can see a sneak peak of the character again when opening the card courtesy of the Katherine Label Pop Up.
I stamped this sentiment from Stampin' Up!'s Delightful Dozen onto a label and tucked the little character behing the label.  I'm sure anybody would be his/her valentine!
Happy Stampin', 
Raquel

Crazy 4 Challenges - Love or Appreciation

The Crazy 4 Challenges team are making projects relating to love or appreciation today.  I stamped the flower from You've Got This onto glossy cardstock using black StazOn.  I first applied Brusho to the glossy by shaking some on and then spritzing with water.  Then I used my aquapainter to color in the leaves and stem, as well as adding a bit more orange to the flower.  I stamped the sentiment onto a Stitched Fishtail Banner using a stamp set called You Move Me.
I used that same stamp set to stamp the inside as well.
Happy Stampin', 
Raquel
