CASology 155 - Cupcake


This week's CASology Cue Card is Cupcake!



I did a couple of fun things to create this card:

1) I combined stamps. The sentiment is from Mama Elephant and actually has the word 'cupcakes' in the spot where I put cupcake images. The row of cupcakes is an old Michael's image.

2) I was too lazy to colour those tiny cupcakes, so I got out a dot stamp and stamped a rainbow. I made sure that the dots weren't straight because the cupcakes aren't straight and because I think it's easier better to make it look like they weren't supposed to be straight, rather than making it look like I tried (but failed!) to get them straight. (Do I hear an 'amen, sistah?' lol!)

3) To preserve white space, but add some interest, I matted my focal panel on white then onto a white cardbase.

Now it's your turn. Make sure to see how the other DT members interpreted this cue card:

'amen, sistah!'

Beyond sweet (pun is intended!). The somewhat planned/uneven cupcakes and dots totally create a whimsical feel which is PERFECT for this awesome sentiment. Yep...will be checking out Mama Elephant shortly!

Hope you're having fun at camp!

Another "amen" from me! I love easy that looks good (or equally, easy that looks more difficult than it is...) Love the little colour dot cupcakes!

Amen, Ardyth! Scrumptious cupcakes ... the randomness of the colour dots makes them look as thought they're bouncing up and down seeking attention ... or to be eaten! Yum! Bisous, Anita :)

Melissa said...

No laziness detected, Ardyth! LOVE how you coloured those little guys! I couldn't wait to read how you did it. Always leave here inspired. Love your double matted round border also.
