TCP Tuesday 285-One Cupcake at a Time

It's time for a new TCP Tuesday challenge!  Our hostess for the challenge is the newest Cat Pack member, Tammy.  She's created this fun St. Patrick's Day themed photo collage for our inspiration.

One Cupcake at a Time card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from The Cat's PajamasI took my inspiration from the yummy cupcake and created a card using the One Cupcake stamp set.  I colored the cupcake and big eared bunny with Copic markers, then carefully cut out the colored image.  It was adhered to a pair of layered circles using dimensional dots.

I dressed up a plain white cardstock panel with a strip of green gingham patterned paper along the right edge and a festive pennant banner, made with one of the dies from the CutUps Bitty Banners set, on the left side.  I added the image panel, then stamped the "celebrate one cupcake at a time" sentiment next to the image in kraft ink. The finished panel was adhered to a kraft card base.

Be sure to stop by the TCP blog for more inspiration and for all the details on how you can play along with the challenge.  Challenge participants have a chance to win a generous Cat Cash prize and to be named the Swanky Stamper of the month, which earns you a slot in an upcoming TCP release blog hop along with a selection of stamps from the release!  Be sure to link up your card on the TCP blog for a chance to win.
