We are very excited to be sponsoring a most unique challenge this week. It's an "Etsy Inspired" challenge! For each challenge an Etsy store is featured and using their products as inspiration you create some type of craft project.
Our partner for this week's Etsy Inspired Challenge is Queen of Tarts Cakes. Their edible creations are amazing - uniquely made cookies with some really fun shapes and icings. All little works of art! They also have a partner shop Queen of Tarts Wafers which creates specialized wafers that can be used as decorative elements on any baked goods. After visiting their shops, and seeing all the little square cookies,we were inspired to create a card that has petite sweet all over it!
Our 'cookies' are stamped with the Itty Bitty Bite Size Cupcake from the Lockhart Stamp Company and 'iced' with different pattern papers and surrounded by pastel 'background icing' of Copic Markers.
Begin by stamping 9 white Inchie Squares using black dye based ink. Our favorite is Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black. Also stamp a selection of pattern papers. We used our Inchie Papers, an assortment of 108 different patterns that are pre-cut into 1 1/2" squares.
Cut out the cupcake tops and glue them onto the stamped Inchie Squares.
Color the background of each square with the super lightest of the Copic Markers - usually the ones with lots of 0's in their labeling.
And don't forget to color the edges! Because the squares are solid core white this is one of the very few products where you can add this finishing detail.
Be sure and visit the Etsy Inspired Challenge blog to find out the details for uploading your submission...and to learn about the great prizes from Inchie Arts and Queen of Tarts Cakes for the winner of this challenge. Entries will be accepted until noon (Pacific time) on Friday November 26.
