First up is this polkadotted cupcake card. I love polkadots and had a lot of fun incorporating them with embossing folders, circle punches, crystal gems, and french knots! Yes, can you believe that moi' hand stitched french knots onto those 3/4" circle punches? It was a bit of a challenge with the arthritis in my hands, but I had so much fun making them and this card! I used my Cricut Sweet Treats cartridge for the cupcake card shape.
My next card was inspired by Cindy Motherway's inspiration teapot for Teapot Tuesday.
|Our Teapot Tuesday inspiration this week are the Three Tea-Migos in blue, yellow, and green! It's a party for Tink, LaRue, and Sunshine, too! We are to bring light-hearted, upbeat, beautiful, wonderful, and colorful things. My card|
I loved the goofy faces on the inspiration teapot and immediately thought of this goofy duck image I have. I stamped him three times and watercolored him with Twinkling H20s in Sunflower, Fresh Oregano, and Evening Primrose, and then shaded the background with Stargazer. I colored their bills with an orange marker and then put orange glitter on them. After I cut my Brilliant Blue cardstock with the film strip die, I watercolored it with the Evening Primrose so all my blues would match. I did the same thing for the circle punches so they would shimmer, too!
The "You Quack Me Up!" sentiment is computer generated. On the inside of my card, I also computer-generated in bright blue ink a duck joke that reads:
"What do you call a crate full of ducks?"
A: A box of quackers!
