TMITA - Recipe Hop Challenge!


Scroll down for the Stamp TV Sweet Treats Blog Hop - posted 11th Dec.





Hiya,

I hope you got the chance to join the recipe hop at TMITA, and if you did what about the challenge recipe on Nina's blog!

1 tag, 2 textures, 3 patterned papers, fold in 4 ribbons and 5 brads or buttons.

My niece would love this card.....pink and purple.....her favourites!

I have to tell you I started with another version of this card, I folded paper to make the cupcake wrapper and tied ribbon around the middle of it but it looked too fussy, so that ended up in the bin!!

Base card is pure white with a layer of purple striped dp from My Memories, which I embossed with a Spellbinders Flourish embossing disc. The second dp is also from My Memories. I added the three ribbon tabs to the side of this one with three purls. I embossed with Swiss dots then zig zaged a circle of lemon dp from the Kaiser Craft Lilac Avenue Collection Paper pad next. Wrapped the last piece of ribbon around this and added the remaining two pearls into the corners.

Once the image was sized I printed it twice onto white card. From one image I coloured, with Copics, and cut out the topping and the Heart and set this aside. The second image was coloured and partially cut out before adding to the background. Using fine foam tabs I added the topping then with a thicker tab the heart. I've also used some kindyglitz, crystalina over the top of the icing to give it some sparkle. My tag is a ticket cut from one of the dp's used and a computer generated sentiment.

Thanks for dropping by.
Till next time..........
