The current challenge going up today features fun fall cupcakes:
We're sponsoring this challenge so If you head over to their blog and play along you have a chance to win a $25 store credit to our store at newtonsnookdesigns.com! How awesome is that?
Of course I had to play along -- here's the card I created. I was inspired by colors to do a Fall themed card and immediately thought of our Pick-a-Pumpkin stamp set. I stamped the thanks pumpkin with orange ink (closest I had t the papaya) and then the argyle pumpkin in eggplant. I cut them both out using the coordinating Pick-a-Pumpkin Die Set. I had a hard time working the forest into my card but used it on the pumpkin stems and a lighter version of it for inking the circle behind the pumpkins!
For the card I used a strip of paper that has a "gauze" layer over it - I thought this looked good for the Fall/Halloween theme. Then I added a strip of orange pattern paper, some enamel dots and a twine bow.
Make sure you pop over to the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge blog to see more fun today. We have several other NND Design Team members featured as "Guest Sweeties" for this challenge and a bunch of the regular "Sweeties" (that's what they call their Design Team -- cute, right?) are featuring Newton's Nook Designs stamps too!
