Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #61

I thought this sketch was so cute, I decided to make two cards for this challenge. What can I say, I’m on a MAJOR card-making roll today. The card below was made with a Very Vanilla base. I layered on some patterned paper from Junkits’ Grandparents Collectionz called “grandma’s flowers”. Most of it is hidden, but trust me, it’s gorgeous paper! I layered two 1-1/2″ slightly different coloured brown panels on the top and side. I absolutely love the Thoughts and Prayers tree/flower and thought the tree would go well with the paper. I added the sentiment from the new Great Friend set from S-U. I layered that with the same brown as on the side panel (non S-U; GASP!). I added some ink to the sides of the tree image to mirror the texture in the patterned paper. I layered a bunch of different flowers that I’ve had in my stash for ages & added a brad to secure them.

For my next card, I used Regal Rose as my card base. I added some S-U DSP on top of that. I added a Regal Rose panel and Certainly Celery panel (both 1-1/2″ inches wide). I ran them both through the Texturz plate and adhered them. I stamped a sentiment from the retired Friendship Flowers set and layered it on Celery and Regal Rose. I used the ticket corner punch on the sentiment and Celery layers and added Celery brads on the Rose layer. I sponged around the sentiment as well to add a little depth. I layered a bunch of paper flowers together and secured them with a green rhinestone brad.

I’m heading to bed. I’m sure I won’t post as many tomorrow. Night, night.
