TECC60: Swinging Cuppie


Happy Cupcake Friday everyone!! I am so excited to show you my sample today because I just adore how it turned out (thanks to Taylor's great sketch*wink). I chose to make a peek-a-boo type one layer card that opens at the front with the center panel (where the scallop is). Last night we had our last SU! stamp club meeting and one of the projects was to make a one sheet wonder (I'll have to share the result of that in future posts) but one of the things I can share is how I organized it. Since we had 6 ladies I chose 6 different color combinations & two-step stamping sets for them to choose from and let them pick as they arrived. What fun!! I am showing one of the color combinations I chose on the Scraptitude site---have you ever used that? It's quite handy when I have color block! I basically chose my base cardstock color of pumpkin pie & it came up with Pacific Point, Kiwi Kiss & Apricot Appeal as coordinating colors and I really like them! I would NOT have chosen these together to be honest with you! For my card I used the new Branching Out & Coordinates and grabbed my faceless cuppie from Home Sweet Home & made his face so he can play on the tree swing! Can't you just hear him saying, 'weeeeeeeeee' as he swings back & forth on this nice almost Spring Day? (well it is in Austin...low 80's) - I know, some of you are jealous & you should be...Central Texas is the place to be. If you live here you know it and if you've visited you know it and if you haven't you should!

Here is a view of the inside of my card since I was not able to put a sentiment on the front.

Here is Taylor’s sketch so you can play along too!! You can be eligible to win Cupcake Sampler Honors & be featured on Taylor’s blog using the next Cupcake Friday Sketch! You’re not required to use cupcakes on your sketch, but if you got ‘em why not use ‘em?? You can create something other than a card but try to keep as close to the sketch as possible. If you’re uploading to Splitcoast, please use keyword TECC60. Leave a comment on Taylor’s post with a link to your blogpost or gallery link so she can check it out!
