Today I have another Birthday card to share with you that I made from the cupcakes I colored from the 30 Day Coloring Challenge.
If you are looking for cupcakes 5- 10, they don’t have cards yet! I jumped straight to cupcake 11.
For this birthday card I made a Swing Easel Card. I used the Colorado Craft Company, Sweet Friend Cupcake stamp for this card, in case you’ve missed some of my other posts.
For the sentiment I used the My Favorite Things, Sassy Pants Best Friends stamp. The paper I used is a Maggie Holmes paper collection that doesn’t seem to have a collection name? It’s an older collection though.
I added some sequins and a bow for some simple embellishing.
Today I have my Day 6 cupcake project to share with you. You may be wondering, where is Day 5? Well, I actually haven’t finished that card yet! It’s in progress so will be coming soon.
I found that even though I colored the cupcakes in a certain order that my projects may be happening out of order!
Instead of cutting out my cupcake, this time I just colored the background with a blue caliart alcohol marker to make a super quick birthday card. Then I added some glossy accents to the strawberry, wink of stella and sequins!
I finished up with a blue rectangle with a vellum overlay for the sentiment.
As a reminder, I used the Colorado Craft Company Big & Bold: Sweet Friend Cupcake for all 30 days of the coloring challenge and I paired it with sentiments from My Favorite Things Sugar-Coated Sentiments clear stamp set. I think this two stamps pair perfectly!
I hope you enjoyed my project & thanks for stopping by!
Happy Sunday! If you are not following me on Instagram then you may have missed all 30 of my cupcakes. That’s right, I colored cupcakes for all 30 days!!!
And while it was fun and I loved using my alcohol markers (I have a mix of Spectrum Noir, Caliart, Promarker and Copics) as much as I did, I am glad it is over.
Here you can see all of my cupcakes!
Right now I am working through all of my projects with these cupcakes. Some are going to be cards and a few I have my eye on for a birthday banner. I’ll continue to share my finished projects here…but it’s going to take me awhile!
One more blog post today. This one has both my Day 4 coloring and completed card and ALL my coloring up to day 12.
First up, here is my day 4 card.
I love this little card! It measures 4 1/2 x 4. This is still the same stamp from Colorado Craft Company/My Sweet Friend but this time I stamped the bottom only and then drew the rest of the cupcake on the top.
I think this sentiment goes perfectly with this little cupcake or really muffin…lol. I also used a We R Memory Keepers star embossing folder to create the background.
Now here are all my cupcakes from Day 5 to today, Day 12!!! Cards will be coming soon!
Day 10& Day 11
For Day 10 & 11, I used the exact same colors. When I compare my chocolate frosting to Day 2, I am amazed at the difference. I really like how both Day 10 & 11 came out. Sometimes I think the strawberry looks better on 10 and the frosting looks better on 11 but then I swap. I don’t really know which I like better! But I can tell my coloring got better.
And here we are at Day 12! I really liked the chocolate frosting so I decided to go back to yellow for some lemon frosting and really focused on shading. What do you think?
I think my strawberry and even the cupcake liner are way better on this last version also.
I have 18 more cupcakes to go! I cannot wait to see how my coloring looks by Day 30.
I am finally back with my Day 2 finished card! I had posted the coloring of this cupcake with my Day 3 coloring & card but hadn’t finished the card but here it is.
It is a Double Z fold Card. This is my 3rd card with the My Sweet Friend Cupcake stamp from Colorado Craft Company.
It measures 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 when closed and when open it measures 5 1/2 x 11.
I used my Spectrum Noir and Caliart markers to color my image and then I added some Glossy Accents to give my strawberry a little sheen. I also added some tiny purple hearts with a stencil.
The inside of the card says “This Card is Sprinkled with Love” with space for a handwritten message and on the opposite side it says “Hello, Cupcake”. Both sentiments are from the MFT Sugar-Coated Sentiments stamp.
I also used the 2nd half of my Day 1 coloring to make a 2nd card.
It is a bit slimmer than the Day 1 card at 3 1/2 x 5. I decorated it the same way though with sequins and my stamped sentiment on Vellum.
My next blog post will have my Day 4 coloring & card and ALL my coloring up to day 12. Making the cards is taking a bit longer but I am definitely keeping up with coloring.
Today is Day 3 of the 30 Day Coloring Challenge that Katy Rac is hosting over at the DailyMarker.com. This is my first time participating in this challenge and I am loving it.
Admittedly, while I colored my Day 2 cupcake, I haven’t made the card yet! That is coming soon…
I did finish my day 3 coloring and the card. I just love so much how this one came out that I went straight to making the card. The card size is 4 3/4 x 5.
If you missed my day 1 post, I am using the same stamp for all 30 days. I am using the Colorado Craft Company- Big & Bold: Sweet Friend Cupcake. I decided to use this one for all 30 days because I so often buy a stamp and only use it once or twice so I decided to push myself to use the same stamp.
For my sentiments I am using the My Favorite Things Sugar-Coated Sentiments Clear stamps. I think this sentiment stamp is perfect match for the cupcake stamp.
I am also using a mix of alcohol markers. Today I used my Caliart markers for the strawberry and cupcake and I used my Spectrum Noirs for the frosting.
I used my MFT Die-namics Tag Builder Blueprints 5 to make the little tag for my sentiment and then I added some green and white twine for a pop of color.
I also added some Clear Glass Bugle Beads on the frosting for some little sprinkle like embellishing.
