Hello Friends!! I'm sorry I haven't posted anything for the past few days! Rather than working on cards, I decided to start on a new crochet project. I've never created an afghan before so I decided to try it out. Well, funny me. . .I decided on using a complicated pattern but it's such a pretty pattern. It's a snowflake design afghan. Well, that's what I've been doing the past few days. The afghan requires 33 snowflake motifs. Ahhhhh! I'm half way done and I can't wait to show you the afghan. It's looking pretty good so far!!
The difficult thing about learning a new hobby is that your focus goes into the process of learning new techniques and that's what has been going on with me and my crocheting. It's difficult to focus on 2 or more hobbies with the same intensity. Right now my paper crafting is sort of being neglected but I think it's important to grow and do other things otherwise life gets a bit stale. . .:)
Anyway. . .now to today's post!! It's Pink Cat Studio release day. . .not digital stamps, but rubber stamp release! Yay!! You can grab these cute images both in rubber and digi but I know some of you prefer rubber stamps.
I just realized after making the cards that I went with a pink color scheme. . .must be subliminally I was thinking Breast Cancer month. . .:) With the first card above, the designer paper and card stock is by Stampin Up, the ribbons by American Craft Elements, the embossing by Cuttlebug, and the border design by EK Success.
Just to let you know. . .the white topping on the cupcake is suppose to be a cherry! LOL! I thought it was whip cream. I didn't realize it was a cherry until I saw the other cards created by the design team! To create the whip cream topping, I used Tulips Puffy Paint, heat embossed it and added Stickles Glitter. I also heat embossed the whole cupcake image with clear embossing powder to give it a shiny effect. You can see the shiny effect in the next picture.
As you can see, the cupcake is shiny. . .:) I also added a bit of Stickles for the sprinkles.
Be sure to stop by the Pink Cat Studio blog and check out all the fabulous cards created by the design team.
My goal this weekend is to finish up the afghan and hopefully, I can blog it some time next week!
Hope you all have a beautiful Thursday!!!
