Challenge #20 Inspiration with Nora

Hello everyone!! It is Nora here with a little inspiration for Stamping Smiles Designs Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #20.

I chose the middle row down for card using frame, dew drops and sweets as the inspiration for my card.

I went pretty clean and simple for this card. I started off by stamping my "sweet" using PaperTrey Ink's "Baker's Dozen" stamp set. I colored the cupcake in using Copic markers and went over the entire image with clear Wink of Stella.

I then used the die that coordinates with the "Baker's Dozen" set and die cut a gold frame that I adhered around the cup cake. I added a bit of red Stickles to create some "gems" around the frame.

Next I stamped the sentiment banner and did a little fussy cutting around it. I wanted the gold to stick out behind it when I adhered it so it looked like a shadow. My last step was to adhere a clear dew drop over the cherry that I had colored in using Copic markers.

This project was quick and easy to put together. I hope it inspires you to play with us!!
