Finishing Up Summer School With Cupcake Creations!🧁

Hello friends!  Hope you’ve had a great week!  Wow…it’s Finally Friday!  I’ve been SO busy “behind the scenes” and I will be getting to all of that later on, but I needed to squeak in with the final creations for the MFT Summer School!

I finished up Day 2 with my “smile rainbow” and now for Day 3, they’re asking for a “symmetry” style of creation.  I was told that basically it’s something that if you were to split it in half, it would be exactly the same on the other half…so this is what I thought of:


I was so excited about getting the My Favorite Things Cupcakes card kit, so I was determined that I was going to pull it out and use it for the rest of my Summer School cards! LOL!  It’s such a cute set with the dies and sentiment stamps!  I really had fun!

I used some papers from the kit and sponged ink around the edges of everything pretty much.  I just used the two cupcakes side by side for the symmetry class.  I just have opposite colors of sprinkles.  I added the red cherry on top, covered with the glitter brush pen and then some glossy accents.  (The glossy accents really got a work out!😮)


So Day 4 class was “ombre” and that pretty much called to me to use the stencil from the card kit (sprinkles in background) and then I just heat embossed white over white and then used inks for the emboss resist technique moving the colors from lightest to darkest to get that classical “ombre effect”.  I also added a die cut cupcake that I used the same ink effect over it.  I die cut the words from the kit with the dark papers I used for the base of the card.  I finished with some sparkly crystal accents to finish it off!


And last but certainly not least was Day 5 “White Space” class.  I don’t often make cards like this, but I honestly love those CAS style cards, but I always want to “teeter” on the fine line between CAS and not…so I always think I’m not doing CAS.  I’m just not comfortable with the “CAS” definition or “rules” of what is or isn’t CAS.  I just feel happiest doing whatever happens to work out in my plan for a design…that’s pretty much it!    Be happy and you’re good!

I used this class to also follow along with the MFT sketch challenge going on as it looked like it was a good sketch for making a “white space” design.

I started by masking off the square and sponging lightly around it, I white heat embossed the sentiment over a black strip and added some silver ink over the stencil again and then attached the cupcake over top with the papers…and added the cherry on top with glossy accents too!

I finished it off with another little flag die from the kit and some silver sequins!  I like how it turned out!  I think I deserve a cupcake after all the creations I made!!😋

I hope you’ve enjoyed my creations today and I really appreciate you stopping in to see what’s going today!  Have a fabulous weekend!

  3. Oh these are so fun and cute Vicki!! I love all of the colorful, yummy cupcakes and the ombre card is gorgeous, love that shade of green!

  4. Those cupcakes are all so cute and each card is just delightfully yummy! Your cupcake kit is being used to it’s full potential and I love the cherry on top of each one!. The ombre looks amazing with the depth of color and design in the background and the added sprinkles on the first card are just plain fun! Love your take on the sketch with the last card, and I rarely make CAS cards as I find them more difficult to design. Like you, I make what appeals to me and makes me happy!


  5. All of these are so fun! I would love to try the ombre technique. Also, sounds like a great summer school, to really push yourself to try different styles. I’m with you though, creating with whatever works out.


  6. I love all of these, im off to check out all those links to learn more.
    Thanks for sharing with us over at Creative Fingers and Arty Diva’s


  7. I’m loving all the cupcakes over the last couple of weeks, Vicki, but I’m sure I’m now 10 pounds heavier! Great take on that sketch on the last one in this post. I love the monochromatic on your middle card and what a fab color you chose for it. 😀


  8. I could not pick a favorite if I tried, they are all so very nice. There is just something special about a cupcake. And delicious too. Fabulous cards all, Vicki.
