Stampin' for the Weekend GDT Card

I was delighted to be asked by Donna & Kimmi join in on the Stampin for the Weekend Challenges as a guest designer for the next 2 weeks.

The challenge this week is to use a digi stamp on your card. it can be any digi stamp from any where, so there is a lot of freedom with this one!


I used a downloaded image & sentiment which I recently won from The Cutting Cafe called "All about Cupcakes". To colour the image and distress the background I used TH distress inks and then glittered the frosting on the cupcake using Star Dust Stickles. I used BG Urban Prairie papers and stitched them in a contrasting colour to make it really stand out. Then I added some prima blossoms with glittered skittles in the centre & buttons threaded with Karen Foster's scrappers floss.
