I found this lovely girlie image called Cupcakes Anyone in The Paper Nest Dolls’ shop a couple of weeks ago … and here is my DT piece using it:

Cupcakes Anyone

I coloured the image using some Promarkers before die cutting the shape. Then I used my favourite technique for adding a faux layer, which works well if the image you’re using fills the frame well. I pierced a border as a frame inside my cut out shape making sure to omit the bits of my image which are ‘overlapping’ my pierced border. I then mat and layered my image on die-cut and pierced pink card.

For the background, I cut some strips of patterned paper and layered them on light pink card. I finished my card as shown by adding die-cut shapes and a flower.

Over to you now. I love to see your creations.

If you need more inspiration check out the fabulous projects by the very talented DT Ladies at ATSM.

That’s it from me for today.

Enjoy and Happy Crafting!!! 🙂


What I used: Image – The Paper Nest Dolls; patterned paper, promarkers, button, card blank, white card – my stash; pretty in pink and melon mambo card, sizzix window frame collection, festive paper piercing pack, sizzix flower die – Stampin’Up!; flourishes – Marianne Designs
