Creative Inspirations Icing Challenge and Diedrich Dare

Hello everyone! Today is a Creative Inspirations Paints day on my blog. YAY!! I love love love these paints! I just got some new ones yesterday so I will be making lots more new things in the feature. This week's challenge is called All About the Icing. We were to use Creative Inspirations Paints on our embellishments.

Wanna know the BEST part about these paints?? They save you money!! Each jar is only $2.25 and you can use them to customize your embellishments. Meaning, no more having to buy everything matchy matchy!

Here, I've painted the die cut birds with Royal Purple and Sky Blue. Then I painted the flower to match! It was originally pink, but now it matches perfectly! No more having to buy every single color flower! How cool is that? Also, this is a SNEAK PEEK at the new Caffinated Cropper kit! I combined it with last month's kit and made this card. All I added to the kit is the card stock and the paint! I used the adorable sketch from this week's Diedrich Dare Challenge for this card.

Be sure to check out the Creative Inspirations Paints blog for the inspiration the DT has for you today. Happy Thursday everyone!
