ColourQ #70

Hi Stamping Friends!!
It's ColourQ Tuesday and Arielle gave us some yummy colors to work with this week.  I told you she was a sweetie!  I just LOVE this color combo and it was very fun being able to work with the retired Cameo Coral.  That was one of the SU! colors I was sad to see go.

Stamps:  Crazy For Cupcakes, Birthday Bliss, Tart and Tangy
Paper:  Early Espresso, Blushing Bride, Poppy Parade, Cameo Coral, Whisper White, Pattern Prints Pack DSP, Pink Flamingo DSP (retired)
Accessories:  Scallop Circle Punch, Circle Punches, White Satin Ribbon, Mat Pack, Paper Piercer, Perfect Polka Dots EF, Crystal Effects
Techniques: Paper Piecing

Sketch Challenge:  Sweet Sunday Sketch SSSC102

I know, not very original with the cupcake, but how can you look at that darling apron and not want to stamp a yummy cupcake?!!  I really love how this card turned out.  Except for my one "duh!" moment. After I added Crystal Effects to the "sprinkles" I wondered why didn't I color them Poppy Parade before I made them so pretty and shiny?  I suppose they could just be sugar crystals instead of sprinkles, but it would have just added that little extra "wow" if they had been another color.

I hope you have a chance to stop by the ColourQ this week and see all the sweet creations from the other Design Team members.  Maybe it will inspire you to stamp something yummy as well!

Stop by tomorrow for My Digital Studio Digi Wednesday.  I found a fun year-long scrap challenge I want to participate in.  And I just bought a TON of new downloads for My Digital Studio (and got to reap the benefits of Sale-A-Bration!).  At the rate it took to download just one pack of digi DSP, it may take me two years to get everything onto my computer.  :)

Happy Stamping!
