I Think The Cat's Out of the Bag

If you read my blog, you'll see that whether I'm talking about nail art or crafts or even workout wear, my favorite color combination is girly pink, black and white. Those colors together always makes me feel the best. And I think I'm also letting the cat out the bag that I LOVE the Cricut Storybook cartridge. I know that the girls over at Cutting Above just demo'd some cupcakes with a flourish from the Storybook cartridge used as a stencil for a sugar design on top... brilliantly, sinfully yummy! So I'm not feeling so bad that, with all the NEW cartridges out, I want to feature Storybook, over and over. And look at this card; the whole thing was entirely inspired by this cartridge. It IS all about the drama, isn't it ladies?!?! hahahaha.

I just reused the left over scraps from another project that I recently did (including the glitter paper.... love those glitter papers), cut out the crowns and the large letter "D", applied stickles to both and then used individual acrylic letter stamps to create the "It's All About The". Oh, and I can't forget that I used that same stamp set (caps) to finish out the word Drama. I think this alpha set is a CTMH set... I don't have the packaging anymore, but I will see if I can't find it again. If I do, I will update this post. Really, any "girly" font will do. I finished by attaching the ribbon and gluing my favorite bling. This card is so cute and I'm waiting for the perfect moment to use it! :) To see the directions for the cupcake stencil, check out this great new blog! Tell the girls over at Cutting Above that FitterTwit sent you! ;)
