The Stamping Boutique DT Card

Morning peeps!! And how are you all on this fresh new day at the start of a brand new week? Hope you're feeling invigorated after the weekend!! Today, The Stamping Boutique are sponsoring Kaboodle Doodle challenge blog's 'Do It with Digis' challenge. And here's my card, using one of TSB's fabby new images 'Cupcake Bakery', which if you hurry, is still massively reduced in the New Year sale!!

I used a gatefold card blank and coloured the image using promarkers, I also added glossy accents where the windows would be in the shop but I'm not sure you can see that in the photographs. The papers are from Papermania's new 'Little Cake Shoppe' release and I used my Marianne Design die to cut the 'doily' circles, I also added pearl dots using my Viva Decor pearly pen.
Now, I must admit, this image takes some time to colour but, I hope you'll agree it's worth it in the end! I had planned to enter this card into Tuesday Morning Sketches and followed their sketch, but I didn't realise that the challenge closed on a Sunday night, so I missed that one! Anyway, I am entering my card into the following:

Right, that's all from me for now. I'll be back later on this afternoon though with something very special, so please pop back!!! TTFN......


  1. Totally gorgeous shug I luuuurrrrvvve the shop & the cakes.....actually so much I've just stuffed my face on scottish shortbread lol, well I had no cup cakes in!! So instead I sat here & ate while looking at your card & I have to say that it may of took you ages to colour it all but its def DEF worth it cus it all looks awesome. I love the gatefold.
