View from the Bakery

Can you believe I used DP, embossing, a punch, and a Nestabilities in one card? Not just a cute character and a tree with plain cardstock and ink today! Ha!

I’ve had this idea in my head for a while just waiting for Taylor to post the right sketch. Today is the day to see the view from my bakery! This was created for Taylors Cupcake Challenge # 41 and WT191 Cutting Corners Challenge to use corner punches. My camera seems to hate to photograph brown! This is much cuter in real life!

To make: I stamped the two buildings. Before coloring them in, I stamped the cupcakes over the top of the buildings. I figured “Why color where I didn’t need to!” Then I filled in the cupcakes and colored the buildings with Copics. I used a gray Copic for the ground and I used my Aqua pen and some soft sky ink to make the sky. I also sponged some Soft Sky around the top and sides of this image.

Next I cut a piece of Pink Pirouette cardstock to size and run only one edge thru my Sizzix with a Nestabilities die to make the scalloped edge. I sponged a little Pink Pirouette across the window ledge that would be flush from the wall so it would look different from the ledge that led to outside.

I used a strip of SU DP and a strip of embossed cardstock (received as a PIF). I used my slot punch to cut the 4 corners out. Finally, I assembled.

Paper: Close to Cocoa, Pink Pirouette, SU designer paper
Ink: Pink Pirouette, Soft Sky
Accessories: Copics, white Prismacolor pencil, Nestabilities, slit punch, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder Textile Texture, aqua pen
