The Pixie Cottage Challenge #57 - Sketch and/or Embossing


It's Wednesday so it means another challenge at The Pixie Cottage!
As always we have 2 parts to the challenge and you can choose either or both to play along with.
We have a fabulous sketch and our theme this week is "Embossing" so it's time to get out those embossing folders, light-boxes and stylus's or your powders and heat guns!

Create 4 Fun - Sketch (it's the same as our at The Pixie Cottage!)
Your Next Stamp - Paper Piecing (I paper pieced the cupcake wrapper)
Scrapbook Sisters - Baby Baby
CCEE - Embossing
Woodware USA - Embossing
Creative Inspirations Challenge - Distressing
Alys - Bling It Up
I Did It - Bling It Up
Papertake Weekly - Putting On The Glitz
Happileigh Scrappin - Cupcakes
Fussy and Fancy - Something Edible
Die Cut Dreams - It's a Girl (Baby)
Craft Your Passion - Pink
Stamping Scrapping Central - Pink (and a product from store, Spellbinders squares)
There She Goes - Pink, Kraft and Ivory
Stamptacular Sunday - Lovin From The Oven
Lexi's - Use a Bear
One Stitch At A Time - Make It Pretty
Crafty Emma's - Cute and Cuddly


Card Recipe:
Image - Smiles and His Cupcake
Paper - Itsy Bitsy Baby Girl by K and Co
Medium - Copic Markers
Paint - Smooch Illuminate
Bows - Offray
Die Cut - Eyelet Squares by Spellbinders
Sentiment - KI Memories
Rhinestones - Treasures by Shabby Chic
Chalk Ink - Versa Magic in Sahara Sand


This was the sketch although I left off the ribbon across the center as there was no room.



I paper pieced the wrapper on the cupcake from coordinating paper and inked all the papers for a softer feel.
The back diamond mat is embossed and ink added for more definition but you can't see too much of it.
I like making baby cards, I think I need to find a pregnant friend to give it to! LOL

That is a sweet card! I like the glimmery (I don't know how to write it but I mean the shine) on the cake.

Hugs,
