Hi Everybody,

Thanks so much for your lovely comments. They were all very much appreciated.

It is Wednesday again and time for another challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More …  Challenge #102 – Make Your Mark!!! Please take the time to check out the full details of the challenges and their rules, which can be found here.

First of all a warm welcome to my new Teamies … and there are quite a few 🙂 which means more inspiration for you … so here they are:

Loll, Cornelia, Lee-Anne, Wei-Wei, Anita, Barb, Rahmat, Tenia, Katie, Carol, Julie and Marina

You might already have met some of them here at ATSM as they have been regularly entering our challenges.

Kathryne from StampArt Design is back with us again this week as our sponsor. 

and the winner will receive 5 digis from her store.

Here it is my DT piece for our Make Your Mark Challenge …

Spunky with cupcake

The adorable SPUNKY THE MOUSE, one of Kathryne’s images, is back with us too this week. This time we weren’t making cheese, Spunky told me he had developed a sweet tooth of late hence we simply baked cupcakes instead. I coloured him and my stamped cupcake (SKETCHED Cupcake by STAMPlorations) using Promarkers, fuzzy both and entwined them a little. For my stamped background I inked up a couple of stamps (Mini Mixed Media by STAMPlorations) one in Crumb Cake and the other one in So Saffron (both by SU) and stamped them onto white card. I then added the stamped stitching (PATCHWORK FRENZY Graphic Squares by STAMPlorations) and edged my panel using Chocolate Chip (SU), attached Spunky and his cupcake, stamped my sentiment, attached my panel to the inside of my card and added some gems and glitter glue before creating the front panel of my card …

Front of Spunky with cupcake

Yes, this is what the front of my card looks like. I first stamped my cupcake on the card and masked it off before continuing stamping in the same way as for my inside background. I then removed my mask and added some colour to my cupcake using watercolour pencils before edging my panel and attaching it to the card front.

… and because I liked my card front so much, I turned it into another card with a video tutorial here ….
cupcake, feel better

  1. Thank you so much for the warm welcome, Monika! I love that you chose the cupcake for Spunky the Mouse, and your coloring is just beautiful! Love your background stamping, too! Off to check out your video!

  2. Oh my, Spunky and the cupcake create a most adorable combination! Brilliant! Your second card: absolutely delightful. I’m so smitten with this STAMPlorations release, and you’ve worked magic with it! Thanks for the welcome to ATSM; excited to be on the team with you!

  3. I think this is absolutely adorable! I love the way you’ve linked Mr Mouse and the cupcake – works perfectly. Great on the inside too.
