Magical Monday - Ahoy Mate!

This week's challenge at There's Magic In The Air with Paper Cupcakes is: "Recipe."

The challenge is to make a card following the recipe below.  You can add to the recipe, but you cannot take away from the ingredients that are listed:


1 Embossing Folder or dry embossing of some sort
1 or more die or punch
1 ribbon, twine, string, or something of the like
1 button
Glitter or some sort of sparkles

For my card, I used the image Paper Cupcakes "Ahoy Mate." I printed out the image on White copic-friendly cardstock (Georgia Pacific 110# from Walmart), colored it with copics, ran it through the Big Kick using the Papertrey Ink - Layerz Mat Stack 3 die, sponged the outside edges, and popped it onto the card front.  You can't tell from the picture, but the little telescope is colored with a glitter pen for the glitter part of the recipe.  The ribbon across the center is actually 3 pieces of heavy twine which I braided together and adhered with 1/8" wide Scor-Tape.  The designer paper is from the 6x6 Authentique "Glory" stack.  Adhered 3 old buttons tied with twine, popped the sentiment, and finished with the owl's googly eye.

Magical Monday - Things With Wings

So, this week's challenge at There's Magic In The Air with Paper Cupcakes is: Things With Wings.

The challenge is to use something with wings on your card - can be the main image or embellishment. 

For my card, I used Paper Cupcakes "Flower Cupcake with Butterfly."   I printed out the image on White copic-friendly cardstock (Georgia Pacific 110# from Walmart), colored it with copics, ran it through the Big Kick using the Spellbinder Labels One die, and sponged lightly inside the die with Summer Sun (SU!) with image still in die.  The sentiment is from Gourmet Rubber Stamps "Vintage Verses."
