Cupcake Challenge Celebrates 400!


Have you heard of the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge? For each challenge they post a YUMMY cupcake photo and color combo for inspiration! Everybody likes cupcakes, right? This week we are helping the Cupcake "Sweeties" celebrate their 400th Challenge! That's a LOT of Cupcakes & Cute cards too! 

The Challenge is, of course, a Birthday Challenge: 

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 couse, I wanted to play along too! Here's what I created:

Of course, I HAD to use our Newton Loves Cake Stamp set! It just seemed so perfect for this! I had so much fun coloring this image of Newton with the giant stacked cake! I used inktense watercolor pencils and a water brush. Then I trimmed out the image using the coordinating Newton Loves Cake Die Set. Since the image is fairly large and detailed I kept the card simple, using a dark blue base and white layer over that. I added some washi tape in teal and lime and a scalloped edge cut out with our Sky Borders Die Set. Then I added on the kitty image with some foam adhesive to give it a bit of dimension. I stamped the "Happy CAKE day" sentiment next to the kitty! This sentiment cracks me up! So cute! And to finish it off I added a bit of blue and white bakers twine! Simple and fun!
