Loves Rubberstamps Challenge using Bildmalarna Mimosa Bare Foot

Hello Friends and Happy New Year 2013!  My family and I just rang in the new year a few hours ago here in California so it's in the early morning of New Year's Day!  Hope everyone had a great time ringing in the New Year or just being safe at home.  We had a small local celebration with the family and the grandparents and enjoyed every bit of it with the delicious food, the great company and the excitement of the countdown to the New Year! Wow, can't believe 2013 is already here! Cheers to you all and hoping the new year brings us all peace, happiness and good health! :)

I know I mentioned in my first posting for Loves Rubberstamps that this is the very first company I have designed for.  I am loving every bit of it and the team is so wonderful!  I feel like I've learned so much since I've started and have grown as a designer in my short time here.  So I was so thrilled that Laura asked me to stay on the team for another term! Thank you Laura!!! :)  Just wanted to share my excitement with you all! I look forward to continuing to share my projects for LRS in 2013 as well as getting inspiration from all of you! :)

So another great way for me to start off 2013 is to share one of my projects for the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge!!! The theme this week is the favorite "Anything Goes".  Basically, you can create whatever your heart desires! 

Our wonderful sponsor for the week is The Cutting Cafe!

Here is my card...

This was a really fun card to make.  When I first started, I wasn't exactly sure where I was going to go with this. With The Cutting Cafe being our sponsor this week, I knew I wanted to use their cute Cake Template.  They have so many great templates and this one was so much fun to work with!  I printed and pieced the parts of the template together first. I then colored this up with my copics.  I then added some Ice Stickles in clear Rock Candy to the edges of the icing part of the cake.  I decided to use the adorable stamp by Bildmalarna called Mimosa Bare Foot.  And this little gal perfectly sat right on the plate of the cake which I thought was so cute!  I used my Memento ink in Black Tuxedo to stamp my image and then colored her up again using my copic markers.  The papers I used in the background is the Bella Paper Pack from Wild Rose Studio.  These are such pretty soft papers in pinks and purples and went perfectly with the colors I used. I also used some Bazzil cardstock in light pink for the base and edged all papers with some Tim Holtz distress ink in Spun Sugar.  The cute daisies are from Recollections and I sprayed them all with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Iridescent Gold. I also added some pink pearls around the flowers.   I glued the flowers down using Best Glue Ever.  The purple flower trim and the white pearl trim are from my stash. The sentiment is from the PI Hello Cupcake stamp set from MFT which I recently picked up at the store.  

Please check out the Loves Rubberstamps store to see supplies used on my card. There are so many new items in and also on pre-orders.  Also, check out the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge blog to see what other  projects the rest of the Design Team made .  If you want to join this fun challenge, I'll post the details below and you could have a chance to win some great prizes form the store.

Hope you all like my card for the week!  Have an awesome day celebrating the New Year 2013!!! :) Thanks so much for stopping by!
