Carl Cupcake!


Hi everyone, I am back again today with another card to share with you. Jennifer of Stamps and Smiles asked me to be guest designer this month for the release of her new stamps which will be released this Friday 8th May. Of course I said yes, because I have been drooling over the cuppy stamps for ages!

Stamps and Smiles have lots of fun things planned for you all this week. Each day from today through to Friday we will be featuring one of the 5 new stamp sets that are to be released. There will be challenges, giveaways and finally a blog hop on Friday. Each day over on the Stamps and Smiles blog there will be a new sketch posted, play along and you could win the the set being previewed that day. Play all 4 sketches for a chance to win the complete set of stamps to be released ... now how cool is that!!!!!! Make sure to go to the Stamps and Smiles blog for the rest of the details.

My card today uses the new “Carl the Cupcake” set, I love this little guy. The layout is today’s sketch that you can find over on the Stamps and Smiles blog.

I stamped the cupcake told me sentiment all over the baja breeze card using the same color ink to create the background on this panel.


Here is the inside of my card using more of the stamps included in this set.

I will be back tomorrow with another Stamps & Smiles sneak peek, so don’t forget to come back and check it out.

My card also qualifies for this week's challenge over at The Pink Elephant. The challenge is #17 and was to use Circles and Scallops.
