Martha Stewart Cupcakes

Both of these cards were made for the Clean & Simple challenges on Splitcoast.

CAS07 - Use Punches

I had a really hard time taking a photo of this card, but it was easy to make. Punches are so fast and simple! First, I did the faux stitching with a paper piercer and mat stack grid. Then I used the Martha Stewart cupcake punch with Stampin' Up DP scraps. I popped up the frosting with dimensionals and colored the dividing space with a Copic sand marker. Finally, I layered, used ribbon scraps, plopped it onto the card base.

Stamps: None!
Paper: chocolate chip, creamy caramel, white, Stampin' Up DP - pumpkin pie, certainly celery, bashful blue, pretty in pink
Accessories: sand Copic marker, Martha Stewart cupcake punch, ribbon, paper piercer & mat stack, dimensionals

This card measures 4.25 square. I use 4.5 A Muse envelopes.

CAS06 - Inspiration Challenge

The Clean & Simple Challenge is an inspiration challenge from Robeez. I chose an adorable pair of baby shoes with cupcakes as my inspiration for my card. They must be sold out because the link no longer works and I can't find them. But there is so much inspiration on that site!
