Fresh & Funky!

tecc65sketchHi everyone! I still have to finish my swaps … but just had to stop this morning for a moment to do a challenge! I was having withdrawals after spending so much time preparing for classes/workshops & doing my Convention swaps. So … I have actually combined two … I hope that is allowed???

The sketch is the “Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #65” and is a such a simple sketch! You could do so much with it! (I actually think I may have “overdone” it a little!!! :D)

And … I have combined this with the “Colour Throwdown #36” colour challenge! I hope you visit both sites to see the gorgeous samples for both of these challenges!


So … here is my card …


And … here are the card details …

Stamp Sets: (All new in this year’s catalogue)

  • Petal Pizzazz
  • All Scallops
  • On Your Birthday


  • Whisper White – A5 (14.8 x 21 cm)
  • Pretty in Pink – 12.5 x 5 cm + scraps for stamping flowers
  • Soft Sky – 4 x 10.5 cm + scraps for stamping flowers
  • Apricot Appeal – scraps for stamping flowers


  • Pixie Pink, Tempting Turquoise, Only Orange Stamp Pads
  • Pink Passion, Taken with Teal, Real Red Stampin’ Write Markers (for highlights on the flowers)

All the flowers on the left side are stamped onto cardstock & cut out with paper snips. They are layered on using snail adhesive & dimensionals. The 4 flowers on the top right were stamped directly onto the white card using a “mask” to overlap images but not colours!
