Impression Obsession DT Challenge: Cupcake kind of day...

The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to use cupcakes on our cards... because it's a cupcake kind of day! If you haven't browsed through the cupcake stamps at I.O., you are in for a treat, literally. There are so many fun ones to choose from.

Here's my card - this is one of the newly released stamps by Leigh Hannan called Beach Cupcake. The image is colored with Touch Twin markers and shaded with pencils, and tucked in behind a Shake-it Shaker Pouch (small oval). The filler is sand and shells that I purchased locally. I used 2 Cover-a-card stamps on the card, Wood Grain and Thick & Thin....the stripes reminded me of an old-fashioned bathing suit. The sentiment is called A Day at the Beach.

Be sure to check out these other designers' blogs for inspiration -
