Terrific Tuesday — Post # 2

If you missed my first post for today it is here!!

Ok, now for the third and fourth cards I made today!!

The third one looks like this:


The way I made this card is I used the Lucky Stars embossing folder from SU! then I used Simon Says Stamps diecut set Frames  and cut it right out of the front of my previously embossed card!! I took the inside piece and watercolored the stars and the background with SU! inks Daffodil Delight and Bashful Blue. I took the thin frame part and sponged it with Buckaroo Blue and then I inlaid both pieces back into my card front! I used Buckaroo Blue ink on my watercolor brush and added splatters to the card! Stamped Happy Birthday and then I was finished!! Pleased with how this one turned out!!

 I am linking up to Simon Says StampWork It Wednesday March 2015 



And my fourth card – so CAS,  the hardest part was the paper piecing of the cupcake!


I used 2 sets for this card – the first Hero Arts Cupcake and for the sentiment Paper Smooches Word SaladI also used a speckle stamp from Hero Arts (had it for a long time) to add some colored speckles with a Kaleidacolor inkpad! The papers I used for piecing  together the cupcake are just from my box of scraps.

Here is a close up pic of the speckles:


This card is being linked to a whole bunch of challenges!! They are:

    Hi, Taunya! Your CAS cards are adorable! I admire you for making a one-layer card – I find those the hardest! Your cupcake is so cute! Your inlaid die technique on the first card is brilliant! Best of luck in your challenges!

    I always struggle with one layer cards Taunya but you make it look easy with your lovely creations. I’ve never seen that speckle stamp and it looks really good!

    Wow, some one has been in her craft room! Love that darling paper-pieced cupcake! Paper piecing is one of my favorite ways to use up my hoard of pattern paper! Keep up the fabulous creations!

    Double treats here, my dear friend! Your little starry sky is charming…those stars make me smile. And the cupcake…oh my goodness! Yummy, sweet, delicious and just plain ol’ cute! The highlight of both cards is how you’ve allowed these darling images to be the stars of the stage…no extra ‘stuff’ to fill the white space. In my view: CAS-ilious, both! Love these!
