Loonie Stampers Challenge Catch Up

I don't know how I get so far behind on the LSC challenges. I used to do them weekly and will try to start doing so again. But I did catch up on 2 out of the last 3 challenges and also participated in this weeks. I kept it pretty simple, as usual.

This week's (#73):

These colours were a real challenge for me. I hardly ever use Berry Sorbet. I knew I wanted to do a cupcake but once that was done I had no idea what to use as a base or background so I followed Maria's faux stitching. I used the Ranger Inkssentials opaque pen. The cupcake is cut from the "From my Kitchen" Cricut cartridge. I think it's the first time I have used this cartridge but when it came out it was one of those "must haves" for me. Hopefully I will get more use out of it soon. The glitter on the card is Martha Stewart Brownstone and Garnet. Man I love that stuff.


Such a pretty colour map but when I pulled out the colours I had nothing, zilch, nada inspiration. I found this rub-on and thought I would make a little card for my husband Doug.

And finally #70 (I skipped #71 as it was Christmas):

I made another little note card type but with a real stitching border. It's almost straight too! lol. I used some of the crocheted flowers I have been hoarding for close to a year. The pp is Basic Grey but I can't remember what collection it is from.

Well, that's it for cards today. I'll leave you with a shot of the apple crisp I made for my son and his friend this morning. My mom gave me that beautiful deep dish pie plate and stand for Christmas. She knows I love to bake which makes it such a special, thoughtful gift to me.

Thanks for stopping by!

  6. good for you!! I also fell far behind in the loonie challenges!! I just got so busy during the holidays and then closed down my crafting space for a little while. I am up and at it again and will hopefully keep up too! I love your cards. Your cupcake is delightful and no need with a fancy background cause it is so cool all buy itself. I especially like your last card - I have that orange paper too ... I just might have to pull it out and see what i can do with it. And finally, you wanna send me a bowl of that apple crisp???
