Inspiration Challenge

It's Saturday and time for another OCC challenge!

Today's challenge is an inspiration challenge using this pretty cupcake from the Martha Stewart website.

You may be inspired to recreate the picture, but that isn't necessary ... get your inspiration from the colors, make a cupcake card, something with polka dots, a Christmas card with holly maybe, etc. Make the inspiration piece your own...and don't worry, no card is 'wrong'.

Be sure to leave a comment here on this post with the link to your card/project so we can see what you've done. If you're uploading to SCS, don't forget to include OCCC in the keywords.

We're very excited to have Taylor VanBruggen as our guest designer this week...after all, the inspiration piece DOES have a cupcake in it and we all know how much Taylor loves cupcakes! Here is her adorable sample, and what a cute sentiment...






...and here are the samples from the OCC girls:

By Denise Marzec - The Paper Landscaper




By Dawn Easton - Treasure Oiler Designz




By Julee Tilman - Poetic Artistry




By Cindy Haffner - Cindy Haffner's Corner




By Amy Sheffer - Pickled Paper Designs




By Lynda Benden - Stamp Act




By Jennifer Meyer - Jennifer's Sweet Designs



Have a wonderful weekend,

  2. Great inspiration challenge this week! All your samples are fantastic! I don't have any cupcake stamps (gasp!) so I went with the colors for my inspiration.
