Muse Challenge #19

Hi guys

I didn't think I was going to get a chance to take part this week but I managed it with a few hours to spare.

This week's muse over at the Muse Challenge blog is Michelle Williams who has created a cute little card with the sentiments framed within lots of colourful images. 

I decided to use the same idea and layout for my card...

 
 
When I saw Michelle's card I knew I wanted to use one of my new Stampin' Up stamp sets, 'Stacks of Wishes' which is a hostess set.  I then went in search of images from other stamp sets to match the sentiments.  I was hoping I would find smaller images to create more of a frame but no luck.  So the finished card isn't how I initially visualised it would be, but I still quite like it :)
 
I used Versa Color ink to stamp the images and finished off a few areas with ProMarkers (parcel and flames).  I then added some Stickles glitter glue to the parcel ribbon and added my new favourite craft item, Glossy Accents, to the icing on the cupcakes.
 
Materials used:
  • Stamps: Stampin' Up - Stacks of Wishes (sentiment); Uniko Studio - Label Love: Birthday (balloon); Penny Black - Salutations (candle); Clearly Besotted Stamps - Merry Little Christmas (small starburst); parcel and cupcake - unknown brand stamp set
  • Ink: Versa Color - Heliotrope, Pink, Canary, Sky Blue, Mint, Silver; Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Accents: ProMarkers; Ranger - Glossy Accents; Stickles - Star Dust
 
This is the inspiration card created by Michelle...
