New cards and more blog candy alerts



Sorry that I haven't posted any new cards in a while...I've been super busy with work, dance class, and some other things. I decided to sit down tonight and make two cards (I'm hoping to get a few more made this weekend). My first card is made with a new Riley stamp that I bought a few weeks ago...I think these stamps are so cute. I used my new Pumpkin Harvest embossing folder and my Cuttlebug to make the background. I stamped the image with Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black and embossed it as well. I used my Tombows to colour in the image. I also added some copper baubles from Stamping Bella to add a finishing touch to the card. This is the first autumn themed card that I have made this year and I think it's really cute (I've been in this mood to make autumn themed things for a few weeks now).

My second card is for a co-workers birthday next week. I used my Cuppcakeabella stamp from Stamping Bella. I inked her with Memento Ink again and embossed her as well. I used my Tombows to colour her in and added some crushed velvet flock to the bottom of the cupcake and some liquid applique to make the icing on the cupcake. I also added a bit of ribbon and some baubles that came from Stamping Bella. I think it's a cute card but I'm not too happy with how the bottom of the cupcake turned out (I think it could have been a little more darker with the flock...does anyone have any suggestions on how I could have done that?).

I was reading some blogs tonight and found some ladies who are giving away some blog candy. Head on over to Bev's blog for your chance to win some fantastic blog candy (she'll be drawing a winner on September 22nd)!!
