Cupcake Craft Challenge Card

Got a challenge card for you today and this one takes inspiration from Cupcake Craft Challenges which this week has a Girly theme.

I’ve gone for some bright colours to cheer us all up 🙂 using papers from the Basic Grey Sugar Rush stack and boy what a versatile paper stack that is turning out to be LOL! You can get it from Elaine at Quixotic Paperie.

The stamp is from Inky Impressions and what a cutey – she is Angelica’s Lantern but I’ve stuck a heart in place of the lantern.

I got my Copic markers out to colour her.

Did some tearing and scrunching to make the flowers and leaves, but also added a bit of stitching. I’ve added some Stickles Glitter glue Icicles and then finished the flower centre with little Inky Dinky Drops from Inky Impressions.

The sentiment is stamped onto little torn scraps of papers and a little stitched heart.

Hope you are having a lovely day you all.



Stamp – Inky Impressions Angelica’s Lantern

Colouring – Copic Markers

Papers – Basic Grey Sugar Rush stack
