TECC44: Tangled in Trimmings & Inchie


I think the idea I had in my head for Taylor's Cupcake Friday sketch {TECC44} didn't quite turn out like I had imagined.  I'm just not completely happy with it, but I am sharing it anyway *smile*.  I wanted to make a unique focal image so I made a frame from my circle nestability.  I think what throws me off is the blue mat behind the focal image, I think if I had made it brown it would look better.  I stamped tangled in trimmings cuppiefrom Season's Sweetings (I can hardly believe it's the first time I've used him) on blush blossom cardstock & decided not to color him in. I did color all the lights with my Copic Atyou Spica pens which sparkle a lot!  All supplies except blush blossom c/s & spica pens can be found in the Taylored Expressions store - if you happen to spend at least $40 you qualify for free shipping with promotional code THANKFUL4U (all caps, no spaces) at checkout - offer good through Sunday evening, November 30.

after I made my card I thought it would be fun to make another one using the cut out circle nestability.  I think I like this card better,  because I made a little inchie with the small cuppie in the Home Sweet Home set and covered it with liquid pearls for frosting.

So cute, Donna! I really like how you separated the scalloped circle on the inchie card!

Cue cards Donna. Love the colors... the Kraft paper looks great with the other colors... and the way you did the scallop circle 'frame'. TFS!

Oh no Donna! Don't say you're not happy with that first card - it totally made me giggle (even though I've seen that little guys lots of times - seeing him on your card made me giggle!). I get what you mean about the blue panel, but I really think it's fine...maybe you could add a layer of brown under the blue panel and you would feel better? But I love it as is! It has a different unique look with the colors you used. Your 2nd card is cute too! Happy Friday!
