Paper Cupcake – Be Inspired

This is my last week on the Paper Cupcake Design Team as my term is over this month. Thank you, Nina for allowing me to be part of the Design Team the past 3 months. It’s been fun.

So this week’s challenge was an inspiration challenge using a Fall/Halloween (new) image.  Our inspiration was this picture:BeInspired_8_16 I

am working with Bushel of Blessings. It is right up my alley as I love Fall/scarecrows & pumpkins! When I first saw this image, my first thoughts were a shaker card. Now I was going to do a regular card but time got away from me since I had 225+ cupcakes during the week to do. So when I sat down to make my card, another idea popped into my head… a PUMPKIN card!!

I folded my cardstock in half and cut a pumpkin shape out of it having the top of the pumpkin on the fold. Using Spellbinders small Circle, I cut out the middle of my pumpkin. Drew lines on for my pumpkin and used DMC floss to “stitch” them.Colored image with copics and also cut it out with the Spellbinders Circles. Using Shake It (Shaker card) Pouches by Impression-Obsession, placed it over my image after I had added some leaves confetti to my image.

PumpkinCloseUPajhcopy Cut my stem out of brown cardstock. Attached my ribbon with wire, “curled” ribbon by attaching it to the pumpkin with Glue Dots. I then took another piece of green wire, attached it to the holding wire and curled it around an eyelet setter to get the shape.


I love how it turned out!! I’m so ready for Fall!
