I'm always up for trying something new in scrapping! Last week, the challenge over at Vintage Plum was to create an Artist Trading Card. So, I created my first one! It was quick and fun, and I thought I'd share them because they make me smile!

I'm loving these cupcake cups! I got a package of small and large ones! prepared for cupcake cups in my projects!

I did some stamping here with the circles. I also did some embossing with those stamps! Fun fun fun! These cards were really my attempts at some sort of grungy style.....hmmmmmm.

I used some Crystal Effects (by Stampin' Up!) to add some clear glass like dots and texture to the top right corner of the card. Additional TIP: You can make some inexpensive bling by taking a glitter marker and place dots at desired areas on a project. Then, take the Crystal Effects and place a small dots over each sure to set aside to dry. When it's all dry, it looks like a little tiny epoxy bling sticker!

I also experimented with my puff paint marker by adding yellow to the cupcake liner.

I love that these cards are full of TEXTURE! So fun!

Here's a close up of the clear dots.

Okay, this was a quick one!
