Cupcake Inspirations Challenge 300 - confetti (card 3)

I'm back with my third card for the Cupcake Inspirations 300th Challenge - confetti.  Be sure to hop over to the challenge blog to learn all about our three challenges and fantastic prize packages.

I've been into CAS cards recently.  I thought this sweet bunny from My Grafico would be perfect for a CAS card.  I colored her with Copics and added glitter from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  I stamped a sentiment that I had in my stash and added a few sequins because I'm loving sequins right now.  I think the sequins are perfect for the confetti challenge.


Supplies
Bunny Love from My Grafico
Orchid Rose Velvet Glitter from Sparkle N Sprinkle
Simon Says Stamp Crystal Reflections Sequins

Cupcake Inspirations Challenge 300 - confetti (post 2)

I'm back with another fun confetti post for the Cupcake Inspirations 300th challenge!  

When I saw this cute little bunny at Oddball Art, I knew that I needed to use it.  As I was waiting for the image to arrive, I watched the 2.18.15 Inspiration Wednesday video and it all started to come together.  The idea of the Velveteen Rabbit came to me so I printed out two copies of a passage from the book.  I printed out several sizes of the kawaii bunny and made two of them into tags with a die from Winnie and Walter.  I added glitter from Sparkle N Sprinkle to the big bunny's heart and the little bunnies ears and tummy.  Then, I pretty much followed Donna's steps with different colors and and stencils.   I think the hearts look like confetti thrown out.   I love the way it turned out!

Cupcake Inspirations Challenge 300 - Confetti

It's time for our third challenge in the Cupcake Inspirations 300th challenge celebration!  Today, we're launching our confetti challenge.  I'll have multiple cards today, and I'll post them one per hour until I run out.


We have three fabulous prize packages - one for each challenge!  Check out all of our amazing sponsors.


I learned a new technique at an open house at my local stamp shop.  You take embossing paste, mix it with ink, and you can make it look like frosting.  With this one, I added pink flocking.  I was inspired by this card that I found on Pinterest.  I had leftover embossing paste, so I made a matching gift tag.


Supplies

Die: Cupcakes Elle-ments by Avery Elle
Dreamweaver Embossing Paste

Happy Scrapping!
