Arrow IC302 ~ The Creative Cake Academy {09-17-11}

Inspiration Challenge 302 ~ The Creative Cake Academy

This week’s Inspiration Challenge site was recommended by Michele (mitchygitchygoomy). She discovered the amazing designs of UK artist Ann of The Creative Cake Academy, who began designing with paper and later translated her design skills to little cupcake masterpieces. Each cupcake is its own work of art.

For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many choices, I’ve uploaded four of my favorites … so just stick with one (or all) of those for your inspiration. The rest of you, remember to let us know which item from The Creative Cake Academy. that inspired you (you can link to pages, but no individual items, so just tell us where you item is located on that page).

Use the keyword: IC302 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

mitchygitchygoomy’s sample ~ Vintage Sweet

My sample ~ Cake Academy Hello

IC302 Gallery

How to Play ~ View the attached images. You may be inspired to recreate the pieces ~ but that isn't necessary ... get your inspiration from the colors, layout, style or 'theme'. Just enjoy wherever your inspired creative journey takes you. Remember, if you are inspired by the creation of another artist, please do not use print-outs of the art in your creation or directly copy their work. Make the inspiration piece your own. Don't worry ~ no card is 'wrong' and there is no time limit for uploading your card for the challenge. There are no rules, so let your creative juices run wild ~ be *inspired* and go get stamping!

Don't forget about No Upload Sunday - Let's give the gallery moderators a day off and not upload on Sunday (unless, of course, you are a Fan Club member - yet another reason to spend a little money on your favorite site). Also, remember to link to your SCS gallery on this thread. Thank you for joining me on this inspiration journey.

Whoo hoo! At last I am finally glad to be living in the UK (craftwise that is!) I love my country but all of you cousins across the pond tend to beat us hands down with crafty stash! I am already planning to attend a workshop with my 2 sisters as a surprise gift! Back later with an inspiration card and THANK YOU so much for making me aware of this fabulous ENGLISH site! LOL! x

Heart IC302 Driving by with Loads of Love! by Crafty Julia

The latest Inspiration Challenge (302) was the basis for my card today. There were some amazing Creative Cupcakes (slide 3 of 4) in lilac and purple that were just beautiful. I decided to use my Cuttlebug embossing folders- Floral Fantasy, Swiss Dots, and A2- Just My Type. I used my Loads of Love set, stamped a purple pickup, and loaded it with hearts! The stamped flower is from Pocket Full of Posies, also by Stampin Up. Enjoy!

Well, I'm a little late but I've had fun with this challenge! I never understood what the big deal was with cupcakes till now... It's a lot of fun and relatively easy to fill up the space on a small canvas so I was inspired to make some smaller-sized cards. The pictures I was inspired by are the ones on her Sep 17, 2011 blog posting. Thanks for looking!
