Here is a little bit about Paper Cupcakes
Hi! I am Nina May and I am the owner and also the illustrator for all the original images that can be found at Paper Cupcakes Stamps. Paper Cupcakes just turned a year old in December and has around 300 original stamp image to choose from. Paper Cupcakes also carries a wide variety of digital stamp images from cute, to floral to realistic. I feel that there is something there for everyone. I have a lot of fun drawing these images and I love to see everyones creativity when creating with them. I realize how much goes into our handcrafted projects and I have always felt that the main ingredient in our projects has always been love. So I say spread the love!
We were very lucky to be given some fabulous images to work with, I chose to use "Penguin with Cupcake"
Here is my design team inspirational piece for this challenge
The base layer of this card is a vibrant pink, I layered onto this some lime green chequered paper.  The band down the side is stamped with a floral Crafty Individual stamp, that I purchased recently at Grimsby Crafts.  The ribbon and bow from stash which was from the Papermania Mono collection.  The sentiment from Hobby house and the new Marianne Creatable from Grimsby Crafts.  I added a string of pearls around the new die and one on top of the bow, these are from Grimsby Crafts too.  The diamante's and large pearls are from Hobby House and the flowers are from stash.
I am entering this creation into the following challenges
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - Spring Flowers Everywhere
Karber Weekly - Digi and Birthday
One Stitch At A Time - Make it Pretty
Paper Sundaes - I have used flowers and Pink for my topping
I would like to say hello to my new followers and thank you to my regular visitors that take the time to leave such lovely and kind comments.
Hugs Kate xx
