ShowCASe Your Style #12 and Just Us Girls #288

First I want to thank you all for your kind thoughts and prayers concerning my eye surgery.   You're the best!!! Everything went as planned and once the dilation wears off I should be as good as new.

Now for my card.  This one saw quite an evolution until I ended up with the final version.  I started with the sketch from ShowCASe Your Style.


I didn't take a picture of the first try,  when the frame around the images was in dark brown, but here is my second take, with a layer of white on top.  The little cupcakes are from PB, white embossed and watercolored.


I liked it with the white, so I stamped my sentiment - crookedly.  Arrgh!   Then I saw the trend challenge from Just Us Girls and knew how I could resurrect it.  Make it into a shaker!


I trimmed the original frame from the first card, placed it on a new base and added a little foam, some acetate, and another white layer with the PPP frame.  I had some clear seed beads that resembled the sprinkles and cut some red with my paper punch to mimic the cherries for the filler. The NBUS sentiment from PB seemed perfect with the sprinkles inside.   (It's weird how the colors came out on these, both taken with the same camera and edited in Picassa.)

Thanks for stopping by today.  Your visits and comments are always appreciated.

  9. First, great news that your eye surgery went well! Yayy..second, your 'design innovation' with your 'transformation' into a shaker...so delightful. I've been doing a lot of crooked sentiment stamping of late...need to pay closer attention to the grid lines on my mat!

  10. Good news (although it is probably old news by now) about your successful eye surgery. Love both of your sweet cupcake cards, and the shaker one was a great save.
