Happy Friday Everyone! This was supposed to go live yesterday, and with cropped and personal events I am a day off this week, but: This is a VERY special TNT Thursday video done by a very special Young Lady who has been a huge blessing and encouragement and help to me lately and I asked her to PLEASE share something FABULOUS with you today and she has BLOWN me away and I know she will you as well.
You may already know her from Courts Craft Corner – www.CourtsCraftsCorner.com and if you don’t – you need to. Make sure you stop by her blog and send her some love! You can also go Love on her on Facebook HERE. This is truly a very inspired card that I feel as though I must create! This is awesome! Thank you SO much Court for sharing with us and I’m so thrilled to be working on more with you soon!!!! Enjoy the Moments Everyone and especially enjoy this TNT video and tutorial
I am honored to bringing you today’s Tips and Tricks video! Megan was so kind to ask if I would like to be a guest on her blog, and OF COURSE I said yes! One of my favorite tricks is to use nontraditional supplies in card making. Such as paint, metal, fabric, but in today’s video I used cupcake wrappers! It is really fun and adds a lot of texture!
Here’s a picture of the card:
And a written collage of how it’s made as well 😉 You can always right click the image and save the image for later reference.
I hope you enjoyed my post, and that you might even be inspired to grab something besides the normal paper crafting supplies!
Thank you Megan for this opportunity, and thank YOU all for taking the time to read/watch!
Have a great day!
Great project, Court! Always fun to see what you come up with!! Hugs!
Such a cute card thanks for sharing
What a neat card~ thanks for doing the tutorial ~ I am going to have to get my cupcake wrappers out pretty soon!
What an awesome card!!! I just love unique card ideas and yours is awesome!!!! So glad you shared today!!!
This is beautiful. I am definitely going to do this technique soon!
Very cute! I used cupcake wrappers to make flowers on party favor bags for my daughters B-day party. I used zebra print cupcake wrappers, pinking shears, and a brad. I somewhat flattened the wrapper, cut 3 wrappers with the pinking shears 3 different sizes, scrunched them up & used the brad to hold them together. They turned out pretty cute. Thanks for sharing!
Great idea. I have cup cake wrappers on my cricut cartridge. I am going to try it to see if it works out the same way. Thanks for the inspiration!
What a great idea Court! (and if you were to place those wrappers just right, I am sure you could create a Hidden Mickey!)
I might need to hit the kitchen in search of crafting supplies!!!!!

Court: Such a cute card. I also enjoy using various materials in nontraditional ways. Thanks for sharing and thanks for helping Megan.
Love the card
Thanks for the great way to use those extra muffin liners…I actually have some printed ones left over from a recent cupcake baking day! Looks like a card making day for me, using your idea!
neat idea but couldn’t understand her
Margie, I agree with you. She really was mumbling, but the card is cute.

By the way, among the many, many wonderful items you can make with the Cricut Artiste (which you can order on my website–see my previous comment above) are LOTS of beautiful cupcake wrappers. You could cut out some of those and use them the same way Court used regular cupcake wrappers in this project. And you can make them out of any paper you choose!
I watched this when it first came out. I was in the mists of making baby cards and they looked incomplete. I had some cupcake Wrappers with baby feet. I cut them in half and added them to my cards. Perfect!!! Thanks for the inspiration
