I haven't played along over at Our Creative Corner in a while - and this week's challenge to use ABC in our creations. I've made two cards, and they are quite similar & use the same ABC items- when I'm in the midst of holiday rush crafting, I find it most efficient to make more than one card at a time using similar products. They don't turn out the same, but it gives me a shared starting point & I find that it streamlines the process a bit.


My two cards both have liquid APPLIQUE, one or more BUTTON(s), and a CUPCAKE.

Supplies: papers from My Mind's Eye; stamps from Stampendous; Palette Noir ink; Cotton Ball Fun Flock from Stampendous; standard circle Nesties; buttons; Liquid Applique & micro beads. 

A close-up of the puffy Applique & fuzzy flock. Love that stuff!


Supplies: papers from Basic Grey "Eskimo Kisses;" standard circle Nesties; snowflake punches from Martha Stewart; Palette Noir ink; stamps by Stampendous; Liquid Applique; red Fun Flock; button from stash; black Glaze pen for 'coal' features on the snowman

I've had these Stampendous stamps for YEARS. They are among my oldest clear stamp sets, and although I've lost a few of the smaller stamps (hello, teeny cherry, where art thou?) I still love the images. And, a few weeks ago a customer mentioned that last year she'd bought a penguin cupcake that said "Merry Muffins!" and that she still loved it. I'm pretty fond of merry muffins myself :)

The OCC challenge to use ABC in your creation ends Friday night, so stay home & craft!

LOL, these are the cutest, Jessi! I showed Damian the penguin in the icing and he nodded his head and said, "Yes, that's good!" Love the sprinkles and puff!

These are both very cute!! I love the snowman in the muffin!! (Snow is just water that is frozen so that cupcake would still be edible! A penguin sat on my food?? Not so sure!)

Both cards are lovely! Love the green and blue buttons! Goodness, did you actually sew all buttons individually? Love the fuzzy flock!

These are so cute. Adorable images and the sentiments are just perfect. I love how you've dressed up the images; the frosting looks yummy!

Hugs, Dawn

Wonderful! Love those buttons. Didn't I call you the button lady before? LOL That frosting looks just like the Pillsbury funfetti frosting! Too fun! Yes, I'm staying home and crafting while the hubs has to work most of the weekend!
