NND Sponsors Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #481

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?

The current challenge going up today features the a Fall theme!


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 love making Fall cards so I was excited to see this challenge theme was FALL! I grabbed the deer pulling the wagon of pumpkins from our Harvest Tails Stamp Set and colored the image using Zig Watercolor markers. I thought it was fun to make the wagon teal but otherwise stuck to fall colors. I cut the image out using our coordinating Harvest Tails Die Set

For the background I used our Falling Leaves Stencil and created an ombr√© leaf background using yellow to orange inks. I cut it out to fit just inside the stitched edge of the large scalloped panel from our Frames & Flags Die Set. If anyone is curious the size of the rectangle that fits inside it like this is about 4 3/4" by 3 1/2." I also added a green hill using our Land Borders Die Set and stamped the "Happy Fall" sentiment, also from the Harvest Tails Stamp Set in the corner.
