Love Cupcakes!

Hello friends and good evening!

I'm here with my inspiration post for the new challenge at Incy Wincy Designs and we're helping you to get ready in time for Valentine's Day, which is just around the corner!, as our theme this time is Love is in the Air.

We've got 2 amazing sponsors for you this time:

Firstly our very own Nikki from Limited Runs Digital Stamps, who is offering our first lucky prize winner 3 digital stamps, or 5 digis if you use a Limited Runs digi. 

This is a fun place to sit back and check out our huge selection of images . We have a little something for everyone from calorie free cupcakes and sweets to all your holiday needs, Love Halloween/Christmas we've got you covered . Limited Runs is great place for those on a budget too with 90% of all images $2 and under. You  can also find lots of hidden deals running through out the shop just check out the pull down menus to see them. Pop in Limited Runs and find out what's new, snag a freebie and enjoy a cuppa something while your browse .

Secondly, Nikky and the team from Polka Doodles are offering our second lucky winner a $15USD gift voucher.

I have used a fun image from Limited Runs Digital Stamps to create this card, and my Valentine's Day card for Papa Mia is sorted!

My card recipe is as follows:
  • Card base - is a pre-made 14.8cm square card in red
  • Papers - comes from a sadly now retired collection from Bearly Mine Designs called "Mini Dots". I have matted and layered this onto black card, as well as using the black card for an additional layer across the middle of the card.
  • Image - is called Love Heart Cupcake and it comes from the desk of Nikki at Limited Runs Digital Stamps. I have brought this tower of yummyness to life using my Spectrum Noir Pens in the listed colours, before die cutting it using my second largest Die'sire Essentials Squares die, and then matting and layering it onto a slightly larger square of black cardstock
    • Hearts - CR8, CR11, DR5
    • Buttercream - IG1, IG2, IG3, Blender Pen
    • Wrapper - IG2, IG6, IG10, Paper Pieced using the Mini Dots paper
  • Sentiment - comes from Crafter's Inspiration Magazine Issue 6 and I've stamped this directly onto the black card using Silver Versamark Ink.

I hope you'll come over to Incy Wincy Designs and see what my fellow DT have made for Love is in the Air - then come back and show us your creations. By the way, Nikki has very generously left a freebie for you on the challenge post ..... nudge, nudge, wink, wink!!!!!!!!! We'll be back with our new challenge on Monday 15th February 2016.

In the meantime, I would like to enter this card into the following challenge:

Hope you have a great weekend!

Hugs, Helen x
