Unscripted Sketches #189 & Addicted to CAS #3

Isn’t Christmas coming along at a gallop?  In between all the preparations and life as usual, I had a quiet pause (phew, a moment to draw breath!) to play along with a couple of challenges.  At Unscripted Sketches, there’s an optional piggyback challenge,  which is to alter the circle and make it a unique focal point, and at Addicted to CAS, the code word is ‘Sweet’.

Luckily, this cupcake stamp (which is also Christmassy … take a look, there’s holly and mince pies!) arrived as a freebie recently and it rather fits the bill.  I cut a circle, stamped and coloured the image (check out the sprinkles), then ‘altered’ it with a scalloped circle mat (it reminds me of a cupcake case seen from above!).  White thread was wrapped around the base card and the image was attached with with foam dots.  The sentiment was also matted and popped up, and a few strategically placed gems finished it off.  So, sweet cupcakes and sweet sentiment!

Supplies:  Cardstock: Docrafts, Stash,  Stamp: Freebie,  Ink: Stazon,  Colours: Promarkers,  Sentiment: Pink Petticoat,  Thread: Stash,  Gems:  Papermania,  Tools:  Cricut, Accent Essentials Cartridge, Martha Stewart Circle Cutter.

Lots to do, so I’m keeping this short and sweet (!) … hope you’re having a splendid week.  Thanks so much for coming by … Anita 🙂

    That’s a pretty cupcake stamp, Anita – love that it’s Christmas-themed! I like the non-traditional colour scheme, and the scalloped circle mat which, you’re right, does look like a cupcake from above.

    Sweet card, sweet stamp! And sweeter yet because it was free! Woot Woot Great job altering the circle for the piggyback challenge! I love popped up elements – it always adds to much depth to a card. Pretty gems too! Thanks for sharing your creativity with us this week at Unscripted Sketches 🙂
