Hazzard County Card Challenge

Oh my, the other Hazzard County girls are going to be so surprised when they see I have joined in this months challenge.

Let's say I killed two birds with one stone.  Saturday I went to a Megameeting (for demonstrators) in Burlington with Kathy and we had a great time.   It has been a few months since I joined in any swaps, so when I saw Jacqueline Cameron was hosting a Sale-A-Bration Mini and an Occasions Mini swap I joined both. 

Each swap had to use products from their respective Mini Catalogue so for the Occasions Mini I decided to use Create-a-Cupcake.  Well wouldn't you know it but I incorporated the elements required for the HCCC challenge this month.  PERFECT! LOL

My cupcake has the most detail but still came together quickly.  I punched out a piece of Real Red cardstock using the 2 3/8" Scallop Circle punch, I cut out a Baja Breeze circle (2 1/4") using the Circle Scissor Plus and then a Whisper White Circle (2") using the Circle Scissor plus.  I layered these three together.

Next I punched out my cupcake top from Baja Breeze cardstock using the Create-a-Cupcake punch.  I covered the piece in Tombow Multipurpose Glue and covered with Baja Breeze Glass Glitter (soooo pretty).

The cupcake bottom was made by inked up (using a marker) in Pear Pizzaz ink from the Create-a-Cupcake stamp set and stamped on Pear Pizzaz cardstock.  I used the punch to then punch it out.  I glued this to the White cardstock circle.  I also added Tombow double sided adhesive to my glittery cupcake top and added that to the white circle as well.  Then using the oh so bold Red Glitter paper from the Occasions Mini I punched out my cherry and used a glue dot to hold that in place.

Next I ran a piece of Whisper White cardstock through the Big Shot using the Elegant Lines embossing folder.  I wrapped Pear Pizzaz seam binding (also from the Occasions Mini) around and tied in a bow.  Wow is this stuff shimmery and light, you can barely feel it between your fingers.  I can't believe how gorgeous it is though and can't wait to order more.

I added my White embossed layer to my 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" Real Red card base and finally popped up my layers of circles and cupcake to the front of my card.

I love the bold bright colours of this card and how yummy that cupcake is.


  1. So happy to see you playing along with the HCCC this month! Great card too! Love the bling-erific cupcake and the sweet embossing on the white cardstock. Anyone would be happy to receive such a card :)

  2. Oh man! I am so behind on my blog-browsing! LOL! I was SO happy to see you linked to the HCCC last month - you're crazy-amazing! I can't believe that in the midst of the most insanely busy month ever, you managed to create this beauty and link up to the challenge. You're awesome!! And I love this card - it's exactly the kind of sweet, cheery card I had in mind when I posted the challenge. Love the colour combo (will definitely be trying this one out!) and that sparkly cupcake is calling my name. LOL! Love the layered circles behind the cupcake too, it really makes it pop! Love, love, love this card!! xo
