This week's inspiration is based on this delicious picture! And it's super cute to boot! :) The challenge involves using polka dots or gingham or both! :) I'm pretty sure a lot of you will love the challenge and inspiration for this week's challenge.
I have two cards for this week. I made one and wasn't so sure about it and decided to make another one a day after. And NOW, I can't decide which one I want to post!!! lol! So I'm just going to post both and cross my fingers that you like them! haha! Here they are...
This is the first card I made. I tried to use as much of the inspiration photo as possible. I used the colors, red and pink as well as the cupcake image. The gingham stamp is from Waltzingmouse Stamps. The cupcake and seed packet stamps are from Papertrey Ink. I tried to keep this one simple and straight forward. I hope you like it. :)
For my second card, I went a bit more...how should I say it...shabby-chicier? lol! I stamped the polka dot background using a PTI background stamp, then I inked the edges with some white metallic paint. I also stamped the gingham from Waltzingmouse Stamps again and laid it on top of the background panel.
And since I can't get enough of this Garden Variety stamp from Papertrey Ink...I HAD to use it again. Only this time, I added more lace and a doily. :) This card didn't coordinate with the inspiration photo as much...but I still used the polka dots and gingham for variety. I was almost sure you would be seeing a ton of red and pink cards. So I made one that wasn't. :) I hope you like this one too!
Head on over to The Shabby Tea Room and join in all the fun! There's more inspiration waiting there for all of you! :)
