It's a Cupcake Inspiration Sunday!!!!



Happy Sunday. Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed your weekend. The weather here in New Hampshire has been wonderful, 70's which for us is FABULOUS! You know you're in New England when the weather hits 60 degrees and people break out their shorts and flip flops (seriously). Hehehe....

So, it's Sunday and Sundays mean cupcakes.....Hope Stamps Eternal cupcake inspiration challenge that is. You're probably looking at the cupcake wondering what in the world did she inspire from these gorgeous cupcakes. Well, I used to go into a inspiration challenge and panic. I would look at the picture and think I don't have anything that looks like "that". Well, it wasn't until recently that I have finally decided that it is a "inspiration" picture. I need to draw inspiration and not "copy" the pic. Since then , I know longer panic about these kind of challenges.

You see, when I first looked at these cupcakes, I thought "these are gorgeous, and very elegant". Well, I don't do elegant, I do "cute". Do you know what I mean? We all have our different styles and I would definitely consider myself a "cutesy" card maker. So when I made my card, I picked out the turquoise in the butterflies and decided I would go with some kind of springy themed card. I also just bought a few new stamps, and wanted to use my new Laurie the skunk stamp. I also wanted to combine my card with this weeks Greeting Farm Sketch Challenge, so I worked my card around that as well.

We would love to have you play along this week! Make sure to add a direct link to your NEW creation on Mr Linky at Hope Stamps Eternal by Saturday, March 27th at 9 pm MT. If you upload to a public gallery like SCS or PCP make sure to use keyword CIC51 so we can easily find you. Remember, no cupcake stamps are required!

Hey Kristen! This is adorable! I often make a card that doesn't have the "feel" of the insp photo as well. I love the butterfly and flower accents. Well done!!

Cute, cute, cute! I love how you described being inspired doesn't mean that you need to follow it exactly.....something for us all to remember.

This is just as cute as can be. I like how you gather your inspiration and don't always take the direct approach.
