It’s Friday AND it’s the 8th – that means it’s time for both Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge (cupcakes not required) AND Divine Design.

First here’s my card for TECC28.  I got to use this super fun new Stampendous set being released today exclusively at eclectic Paperie.  It’s called Merry Muffins and it’s so clever!  There are two different bottom pieces – a soda glass and a muffin/cupcake and then several different tops (whip cream or icing) with different characters – chick, Fluffles the cat, penguin, snowman.  They are clear stamps and so easy to put together in all the different combos along with the cute sentiments and little extras like straws and sprinkles.

For this card I colored the image with Copic markers and added Crystal Effects to the soda glass and cherry as well as Liquid Applique for the whipped cream.  Sentiment on the front says:  Hope your bday is delish.  On the inside it says:…with a cherry on top!! Finished card size is 6″ x 3.25″.  If you want this set (and how could you not?) you need to head over to eP and order it right away.  I’m not sure how many of these sets they got, but I’m betting they sell out over the weekend.  You can see more samples by clicking here.

Recipe:

paper – Real red, Summer Sun, White, sp from Basic Grey Two Scoops

stuff – Copic markers, Crystal Effects, Liquid Applique, Liquid Pearls, Kaiser Craft green rhinestones, fancy red flower rhinestone brad, circle punches

 

The TECC is a sketch challenge and you do not need to use cupcakes.  I hope you’ll play along – you can get all the info on Taylor’s blog by clicking here.  To see samples made by the whole Cupcake crew just do a little blog hopping:

 Lynn Mercurio: Stamperosity
Ana Wohlfahrt: Ink A Stamp
Stephanie Hargis: Steph’s Stampin’ Stuff
Vicki Chrisman: This Art that makes me Happy
Mary Jo Albright: Beauty Lies Within
Sherrie Siemens: Card Creme
Monika Davis: M.A.D. Stamper

 

And now to switch gears to the Divine Design Challenge.  I apologize for missing last month – I just never got caught up.  At some point I do intend to do a make up card for it though.  The verse I chose for this month is Psalm 43:3.4

 

      O send out Your light and Your truth, let them lead me;
         Let them bring me to Your holy hill
         And to Your dwelling places.
    Then I will go to the altar of God,
         To God my exceeding joy;
         And upon the lyre I shall praise You, O God, my God.

This month’s journaling card is very simple – the verse is printed on vellum and framed with Bella Rose designer paper layered over a Kiwi Kiss base.  The roses are cut out from another sheet of Bella Rose and covered in Crystal Effects.  The vine is made up of some die cut leaves that have been sitting out on my stamp table for months. 

Let’s see what the other Scripture Chicks have to say today – Angel Wilde, Nancy MorganTaylor VanBruggen and Lori Craig.

Today I’m having an Open House Retired Stamp Sets Clearance.  If you’re in the area I hope you’ll stop by between 3-5 or 7-9pm.

    Thanks for alerting us to another cupcake set that is SUPER CUTE, and also for alerting us to samples. I ordered the set, printed the samples, and am going to have fun for sure! I noted eP’s website is out of the white liquid applique, so I’ll have to look for some at my local craft store…
