It's My First justjohanna!!!

Get ready for a bunch of justjohanna posts! The design team I'm on creates samples for wholesale orders, meaning the cards the team makes are included with orders of justjohanna stamps, to be used as samples at retail locations. Therefore we need to wait awhile before posting our samples. We just got the all clear today to post the samples we created back in September and I'm so excited to share!!

One of my favorite things about being on the design team is that most of our assignments are much like challenges - at least to me - in that we are given a list of stamps that must be used on our samples and we're not to use any images not on the list. Well when one of the assignments is for one cupcake and one sentiment...that presents a challenge for me! LOL! But you know what? I LOVE it! I have had such a great time working on the jj's been a blast!

OK - enough of my bragging on justjohanna! ;-) The cupcake was colored with my Copic markers and then cut out as was the "for you", which I also traced with a marker to give it a bit of color. I used my Cuttlebug to create a small band of textured paper and attached that to a Pumpkin Pie card base. The chipboard circle was covered in paper from a SU! Scrappin' Kit and then sponged with some Pumpkin Pie ink. The tag is actually a sticker from the same Scrappin' Kit and that was slid under the cupcake, which had been attached to the circle with dimensional tape. The "for you" was added to the tag as well as an antiqued picture hanger and brad. A small piece of Pumpkin Pie ribbon was added to the hanger to finish off the piece!

Stay tuned for more cupcake cards tomorrow...

Enjoy and happy snacking! ;-)
