TLC Card and a Cupcake Card

Good Afternoon!
The sun is shining and it's melting our snow! Yah!
Today on SCS was the Try a New Technique Challenge. This was one I had never done before.
You were doing a negative effect with an embossing folder.
I didn't ink up my Stylized Flowers folder very good, and it came out blotchy but I like the look!
Be sure to check the challenge out HERE.
Stamps: Pretty Amazing
Cardstock: Soft Sky, Blue Bayou, WW
Inks: Blue Bayou, Soft Sky
Accessories: Cuttlebug and Stylized Flower Embossing Folder, Sponges, 2 way glue pen and glitter, Pop Dots, Brayer, Dew Drops
This card....well it was just me messing around....lol
I wanted to somehow repeat the dots on the pattern paper. So I stamped my image on white cardstock and punched it out with a Marvy punch. Then I used my coluzzle and cut a little bit bigger brocade blue circle. You can't really see it but it's there behind the 1/2" coloured circles that I punched and glued down to it. Then I taped my cupcake image layer over the top of it. The cherry is cut out and popped up with a glue dot.

Stamps: Hero Arts Cardstock: Real Red, Brocade Blue, Certainly Celery, Pumpkin, WW, American Crafts DP Inks: Adirondack Black, Real Red Accessories: Copic Markers, American Crafts Ribbon, Mat Pack and Paper Piercer, HodgePodgeHardware, Photo corner Punch, Corner Rounder Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch, Coluzzle, Marvy Circle Punch

Thanks for stopping by today!
I've got some information to gather for my meeting at school tonight.
If you have any questions....just holler!
