The Pink Elephant #2


I have 2 blog posts today so make sure to check below for the other posting. I came across The Pink Elephant on a blog recently and bookmarked it because it was a new blog starting up. I can tell these ladies are going to have some fun things in for us. Here is my card for the second challenge which is using glitter on your card! The card base is Basic Black with Pixie Pink matted on top. The designer paper is from the Black Market Paper Society called Ebony & Alabaster 6X6 pack I found that at Gina K's website too. The paper is textured and is so pretty in person. I used Cupcakeabella from Stamping Bella I stamped her in Staz On black ink onto Gina K's Pure Luxury 120 lb. white cardstock. Man oh man is that the thickest cardstock I've ever come across. It stamps wonderfully and you can watercolor and use blender pens on it with ease. I used the Labels One by Spellbinders to mat her on. I paper pieced the same dp onto the cupcake liner. I used star dust stickles on the pink dots on her dress, and black diamond stickles to outline the cupcake's frosting and then on various dots on the designer paper. I can't wait to see more challenges by The Pink Elephant!

Felicia, I absolutely loved your cards. I need to get some stamps from Stamping Bella. I've been eyeing that site for awhile. Gorgeous! I didn't make Marissa's cake, I get all the cakes from this incredible bakery near me. I have Adobe 7 Photoshop. If hubby's able to help that would be awesome and appreciated. Have a great day!
