PTI: Create Along With Us

Hi and welcome back. I had a little time to make a tag inspired by Heather Nichol's birthday cupcake cards HERE.  I thought I'd try to create my own frosted cupcake.

I used Art Deco to create the frosting, Enclosed: Cupcake for the cupcake base and wrapper. The cupcake is popped up on top of a Quilted tag with a little Fancy Flourishes in the background.

 My Grandmother is celebrating her 95th Birthday on Easter Sunday and her favorite color is purple so this tag is destined for her gift. Hope she likes it!

Thanks for stopping by

MIM: Ombré Backgrounds

I found a little time to play around with ink blending and stencils. When Papertrey Ink released three stencil backgrounds during their last release, I was pretty sure I would love using them on projects.  It's so easy and adds just that right 'something' to the background without adding bulk.

This week, Betsy challenged us to create an ombré background and add a stenciled pattern. I started with Lavender Moon, Spring Rain, Blueberry Sky and Enchanted Evening inks. Once the colors were blended together, I laid one of the new stencils over the card front and went over the entire card again to create the background pattern. I can't wait to try out the two others patterns!
