Welcome to Birthday Sundaes "Cake & Cupcakes Birthday Cards" Blog Hop!
Today is the LAST Sunday of the month - can you believe how fast the month went by? - and with it comes a bittersweet post. Today we will be saying HELLO to FOUR NEW DT MEMBERS! - the sweet part - Welcome Ladies! With that said, my term as a Birthday Sundaes Designer has come to an end - the bitter part. I have truely enjoyed every moment of it and will be forever grateful to Kristie for giving me the chance to get to know her and the other DT Ladies, as well as being part of the FIRST BIRTHDAY SUNDAES Design Team.
To say FAREWELL to those who are departing and HELLO to those joining us, everyone at Birthday Sundaes has decided to have a CAKE & CUPCAKE Blog Hop! Each Design Team member will be featuring an original CAKE/CUPCAKE birthday card with a birthday greeting/sentiment of course!
If you've come from curret DT Member Sonia's Blog, then you're heading in the right direction. If you just happened to come across my blog and would like to play along with our CAKE/CUPCAKE BLOG HOP, start HERE.
Make sure to check out each DT member's blog for some awesome inspiration! There will be PRIZES along the way at some of our DT member's blogs, and there will be a Grand Prize up for grabs at Birthday Sundaes for one participant that submits a CAKE/CUPCAKE birthday card and comments on ALL the blogs!
For my project, I created a SWEET BIRTHDAY CUPCAKE card.
I based the card on last week's Deconstructed Sketch #11.
I replaced the scalloped edge border with some ruffled 'Sky Blue' Crinkle Ribbon from My Craft Spot. I fell in love with the idea when I saw a Deconstructed Sketch DT Member do something similar on her card.
Today's card was also inspired by this week's ColourQ Challenge #95. Absolutely LOVE the Owl Cookie Jar and the new SU! In-Colors are lovely.
If you follower my blog, you know I don't use SU! cardstock and normally resort to the closest colors I have. But this time I did something a bit different. I purchased a few digital papers from an Etsy Store called theart & design boutique and recolored them using Photoshop8.
For my A-dorable CUPCAKE, I used the Cricut Simply Charmed Cartridge. Can't remember the exact size I cut it at, but it must have been around 3". The sentiment is from the Scrappy Moms Stamps "Sweet Somethings" stamp set.
I hope this "Sweet Birthday Cupcake" Birthday card has inspired you to join us in our "CAKES & CUPCAKES" plus a birthday sentiment challenge week!
