{Cupcake Inspirations} Color Challenge Reminder

Hello there friends!  Hoping you’ve had a wonderful weekend!  It’s gotten pretty warm again over my way after enjoying the slightly cooler and beautiful weather for a while!  I’ve been enjoying the flowers while they’re still around!

I’m sharing some more inspiration with you today for a reminder on our current color challenge for {Cupcake Inspirations}, so if you haven’t played along with us yet, you still have another week to join us!

For some reason this color challenge still had me thinking of daisy flowers…so I went with that again for my design this week as well:


I’ve pulled out a Pink and Main stamp set called Daisy Bugs and colored up the bundle of flowers image with Copic markers and then used the coordinating dies to cu it out with which was popped up over my design with foam tape.

I used the sentiment from the same stamp set as well and white heat embossed it over Navy cardstock and used the coordinating die to cut that out with as well which was glued over the card.

The yellow decorative papers were pulled out from my older Stampin’ Up! stash as I thought it fit with the theme and I was super happy to use some more papers up!  I’ve used a stitched circle die to cut out the white layer behind the flowers and then another fancy circle die from Gina Marie cut out with Navy to layer behind that as well.  I also die cut a border strip with a Crafter’s Companion die to place across my design and I wrapped some stitched navy ribbon (SU!) over it before attaching to the design.

I glued the bow over top of the circle image panel and then I used a navy marker to create the stitch lines around the edges to finish it off.


Here’s a closer look at the flowers popped up on the design.  You can see in the centers of the flowers that I’ve added some glossy accents.

I think it really makes the flowers pop off the design!


I hope you’ve enjoyed my card today and has brought you some inspiration!

Thanks so much for joining me here today and I’ll see you again soon!

  2. Love your blue yellow and white card, the flowers are amazing and love their centers. What a great set to work with and your ribbon and bow are the finishing touch.
    Hot here as well hit and humid spent a lot of time in my craft room. Lol


  3. This is on pretty card Vicki. The doily die cut frames those pretty daises and I like how you used the stitching throughout your glorious and beautiful card x.


  4. I just love that older ribbon with the perfectly tied little bow, but the round die cuts are the perfect backdrop for those pretty yellow daisies! This is such a beautifully designed card with a great color combo – way to meet the challenge with 2 big thumbs up!
