WT 203 and Taylor's Cupcake Anniversary Challenge...the Last 4 cards!! Whoohoo, I Finishes all 9!!!



If all of you don't know, I am a real slow stamper!! So, for me to finish all 9 of these cards by today was a real challenge!! Sometimes it's good to push yourself just a little....it's amazing what you can do if you put your mind to it!!
All four of the cards I finished today were also for the WT challenge to use alcohol inks in new and different ways. All the cards were colored with copics and some had embellies colored with copics, too.

This is my 6th card (Taylor's sketch) for the 9 sketch challenges to celebrate Taylor's One Year of Cupcake Challenges Anniversary. The sweet little cuppies from the A Year of Sweets 2 were stamped with Memento Black and colored with copics. The paper is by Imaginisce and the pink layer was run through the Cuttlebug with the Dotted Swiss folder and scalloped with the SU border punch. The flowers are from Memory Box, the buttons are from Basic Grey, and the ribbon is Wild Wasabi.


This is my 7th card of the 9 sketch challenges for Taylor's Cupcake Challenge Anniversary. This sketch is by Anna Wohlfahrt and also qualifies for the TLC205 challenge to use pleats (the background Purley Pomegranate dp layer was pleated). The image was colored with copics and the words on the two heart buttons at the top were colored with copics. Glitter was added to the Rubbernecker heart toperary image for a little glam. I just love this retired SU dp....as you can see I have been hoarding!! The sentiment, also by Rubbernecker, was stamped with Purley Pomegranate and Papertrey Ink ribbon, pink heart brad, and a prima finish it off.

This is also one more Valentine down and about 5 more to go!!









This is the 8th card for the 9 sketch challenges for Taylor's One Year Cupcake Anniversary Challenge. This sketch is by Jackie Pedro...the Rubbernecker Sunflowers and Laughter image and Rubbernecker sentiment were stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa and the image was colored with copics. I used an orange copic to darken the bling at the top. The paper is from Basic Grey's Mellow and the ribbon is PTI's Summer Sunrise. the background Kiwi Kiss layer was run through the Cuttlebug with the Dotted Swiss folder, all the circles were cut out with Nestabilities, and the bottom layer was scalloped with the Stampin Up! border punch. I know the color combo looks a little strange for a Spring card but I really need a change after so much red and pink!!










Whoohoo....I finally finished my 9th and final card for Taylor's Cupcake Anniversary Challenge!! This sketch is by Sherrie Siemens and I used the darling little cuppie licking his lips over all the sweets from Taylor's Love is Sweet set. The image was colored with copics and I also colored the buttons with copics. They have a cracked look that looks kinda cool! They were attached to the chipboard heart that was also colored with a copic. The circle was cutout of red glitter paper using Nestabilities and the heart dp is by Flair Designs.

Thanks sooo much for visiting and hope you were able to complete some of these challenges, too!! Have a great day....I'm off to celebrate with a cupcake!!!!
