Avery Elle Guest Designer Challenge!! =)

Pin It

Hello and Happy Sunday!!
We have been SO BUSY trying to get our Garden Planted and just finished planting corn in the fields!! All of the Soybeans are also in the ground and its looking like we will be harvesting Wheat by the first week in July!! Almost two weeks behind from where harvest was last year because it got so HOT early and with NO rain it was ready to harvest. We were cutting wheat on the 17th of June!! The FIRST Year in my life time that I can remember not being in the fields over the 4th of July Weekend!!
Anyway, I wanted to play along with the Guest Designer Challenge over on the Avery Elle Blog!! This is the second challenge I have played along with and I had SO many ideas, but decided just to make ONE card!! I wanted to use the NEW Cupcake Stamp Set along with the coordinating dies. I LOVE this FUN set!! So many possibilities!! I also used the New Hand Written Notes Sentiment Stamp Set and the FUN Little Sentimental Swirls Stamp Set!!
Our 4" x 6" Cupcakes clear photopolymer stamp set is perfect for creating a sweet greeting.  The sentiments included in this set are great for birthdays or a sweet hello.  Our 4" x 6" Handwritten Notes clear photopolymer stamp set is perfect for creating custom fun greetings.  The sentiments included in this set are great for every occasion.  The caret stamps allow you to customize and emphasize the greetings as you wish.  Avery Elle Clear Stamps, Sentimental Swirls
I decided to go with a pretty neutral color scheme beings the Inspiration Picture only show these two colors!! I was able to find some stripped blue and white paper in my scrap bin and it seemed a PERFECT fit!! I then took the Scroll Stamp and stamped a Frame around the lower base of my card with the Navy Hero Arts Shadow Ink and then I added a couple Prima gems for interest!! I added the stripped paper to another oatmeal cardstock base and then I stamped my cupcake out onto the matching die cuts!! I cut the base from some coordinating felt and stamped the image ontop and I LOVE that if you use the right ink (Versa Fine) seems to work/look really well when stamping on felt!! Then I finished stamping the rest of the pieces all on to Oatmeal Cardstock by WPlus9 I LOVE this cardstock because it is 100lbs. weight and it works really well when water coloring!! I used the Faber-Castell Aquarelle Water Color Pencils and colored in the image!! LOVE the two tone look of the icing!! I want to EAT it cause it looks so YUMMY!!  =) SO here is my Finished Card!!
