The Cupcake Crew is Back!

July 17th, 2009

WooHoo!  We are back to our regular Friday sketches from Taylor!  You can find TECC74 on Taylor’s blog along with her sample and we’d love for you to come and play along!  Today I have a simple card that I had fun really just *playing* with! 


I’m sure it’s no surprise to most of you that my favorite new SU In Color is Melon Mambo.  I’ve been wanting to spend some time playing with the In Colors to find color combos I really like.  For today’s card I decided to work with Melon Mambo and create a color combo with some of the regular colors.  I always love combos of pink, yellow and green so that’s what I decided to work with here.  I ended up with Melon Mambo, Certainly Celery and So Saffron and I LOVE IT!  I wish the photo did it justice, but I think Melon Mambo is going to be one of those colors that I just can’t seem to photograph well.  I have the same problem with Rose Red.  This combo is so much prettier IRL.  I hope you’ll try it out for yourself.

ETA: I had to laugh myself as I was working on this post and hit save to preview it and saw how much the color combo on this card resembles my blog header.  DUH!  Guess I’m just drawn to these colors!  LOL!

The Melon panel is embossed with the Birds and Swirls Cuttlebug folder which works so nicely with this image from the SU set A Flower for All Seasons.  The image is stamped on shimmer white cardstock and watercolored with ink and an aquapainter.  Doodling around the edges is done with a Going Gray SU marker using the fine tip end. 

The sentiment is from the Designer Label set and is stamped twice (in Saffron and Melon) and cut apart and layered onto a celery tecc74-inside-jami-custom.jpgpunch.  This is one of those cards that just makes me grin.

Now let’s see what the rest of the Cupcake Crew has cooked up with today’s sketch:

  • Ana Wohlfahrt
  • Donna Baker
  • Jackie Pedro
  • Lynn Mercurio
  • Monika Davis
  • Sherrie Siemens
  • Stephanie Hargis
  • Vicki Chrisman
  • Carpet installation is due any minute now.  You have no idea how excited I am about that.  We’ve needed new carpet for several years and we’ve chosen a pretty mossy green.  This weekend will be spent putting the house back together and then next week I can start the long process of sorting through all the *stuff* we boxed up to determine what stays and what goes.  It will be so wonderful to have this fresh start.  I promise to post some pictures soon.  Have a fantastic weekend!
